What week did you find out the gender?

how many weeks were you when you got your sonogram to find out the sex? With my first born my doctor didnt do one with me until i was 20 wks but everyone I know right now are finding out at 18 wks, one friend knew by 16wks. Is that comman for doctors to do that now? My doc hasnt done a sonogram on me since i was 7 wks pregnant and i'm 16 wks now.

  • I found out at 16 weeks, but I paid out of pocket for my ultrasound at a 3D/4D place. Some people get more ultrasounds than others...just depends on the doc. All my previous babies have been between 19-21 weeks.

  • they are not allowed to do one just to find out the gender because of insurance coverage so most cant do one until 20 weeks when they do the down syndrome test. You can go to one of those ultrasound places and they can tell you at 16 weeks. I went and bought one of those gender predictor kits for$25 from walgreens when I was 10 weeks, It was right but I still went to the ultrasound place for a second opinion

  • My midwife did an ultrasound at 14 weeks, and it definatly looked like a boy, but she said we weren't supposed to be sure until 15 or 16 weeks. Sure enough, Boy!

  • I was 20 weeks. I was fine not doing it before then because I figured the longer I waited, the higher the chance that they could find out. :)
