How soon?

How soon did you find out the gender of your baby? I am scheduled for my NT scan next Monday, I will be 12 weeks and 3 days, my ob seems to think that my perinatologist will be able to tell the gender. Did anyone else find out this early?

  • Not until 20 weeks but I've heard that if the baby is positioned right you can find out earlier.

  • Depends on if the baby cooperates, though to tell the gender is usually after 18 weeks. That's when it's more developed to be able to tell.

  • I wouldn't trust any 'guess' at 12 weeks. Even at 20 weeks it can be wrong

  • I had an u/s around 12 weeks and even though they didn't say anything to me I was positive I saw a little winky in the picture and low and behold 8 weeks later we got a DEFINITE answer of boy. So it's possible, but not a guarantee...

  • Here are some pictures at 11 weeks and you can see that the baby baby girl looks like a boy.
