  • 18-20 weeks when they do the anatomy ultrasound. They don't acutally do US for gender if they can see it they you can find out. :)

  • 18 weeks is typically when they'll schedule that ultrasound. It is possible to tell earlier... I had a bad wreck when I was 16 weeks, so when they did an ultrasound to make sure my little one was okay, they said "oh, your son is perfectly fine!" We were ecstatic! My hubby was like "geez, Heather... You just couldn't wait to find out what we were having, so you had to go and total your car?" lol

  • I found out at 23 weeks, but like Sunshinebaby209 I had a stubborn baby (And I work in a hospital with friends that work in radiology, so I was able to go back and get my US just for the sake of finding out the sex)

  • I had the 2nd trimester ultrasound at 21 weeks he was 75% sure it was a girl so last week he did a third ultrasound just to determine the gender. now he is 90% sure that she is a girl. I love my dr. he is awsome.
