Having my next ultrasound on week 20... Will my husband and I be able to find out the gender? I heard week 22 is better.

Is 20 weeks far enough along to most likely determine the gender through utrasound? What week did you find out? Thanks in advance =)

  • I found out during week 22 and even then the person said they thought he was a boy, not 100% sure. His goods was where my belly button was and it was hard to get a good view. My dr usually did the ultrasounds between 20-22 weeks.

  • The gender is completely done forming by the time the baby is 13 weeks gestation. We actually found out we were having a son when I was only 16 weeks!

  • I found out that I was having a girl at my 19 week ultrasound, and they were right we did have a little girl. According to all that I have read, the gender is visable through ultrasound at week 16, however the futher along you are the more accurate the reading will be. Good luck, and I hope you get a beautiful baby!!

  • You could find out the gender of your chld by 16 weeks, My husband and I did not find out the gender of our child till' the day she was born.... we were never able to see a clear ultrasound of her genitals, she always had her legs closed or was in an ackward position....somehow my hubby always knew we were having a girl.....

  • I went to one of those 4d ultrasound places at 15 weeks and they told me it was a girl, they were right.
