Too soon to see sex right at 20 weeks?

This is probably a silly question: Is it better to wait a couple weeks after reaching 20 weeks when we go to find out the sex? Is going right at the 20 week mark too soon and then there is a chance we won't be able to tell? I know there's always a chance the baby won't be in a good position to see....

  • I found out at 19 weeks 5 days that I was having a boy... I think they only way they wouldn't beable to tell is if your baby doesn't open his or her legs. Good luck!

  • I've found out the sex of my LO at 12 weeks. It just depends on if the baby lets you see or decides to hide it from you.

  • 20 weeks is the standard time for finding out the sex. They told me at 16 weeks they thought my son was a boy...and at 20 weeks they confirmed it! He is indeed a boy!
