  • My midwife will not do a gender u/s until after 20 weeks, she said that before 18 weeks the genitals look too similar and can be mistaken for the wrong gender.

  • You can actually tell as early as like 14-15 weeks, but most doctors won't do an ultrasound until 20 weeks to check the baby's organs and such.

  • Dr's usually say 18-20 weeks, but I know for a fact you can find out as early as 13 weeks. My friend found out she was carrying a boy at 12 weeks 5 days and I found out I was having a girl at 13 weeks 4 days (we were both having complications so we had lots of ultrasounds). They won't give you a 100%, but if they see something, then it generally means boy lol! If they don't see anything, they'll give you a 75% chance it's a girl, but by that point the genitalia has already started forming.
