  • 16 is typically the earliest with ultrasound. Though if a CVS is done (typically around 12 weeks) they can find out gender at the same time.

  • I was about 16 weeks with both my kids when I found out what they were. I always thought that was about the right time, but not sure if u could find out earlier.

  • 16-20 weeks depending on the sex of the baby, his/her position and your weight. A heavier set person will be able to find out the sex earlier than a thinner one. I was around 20 weeks with #1 and 18 with # 2.
