I keep getting mixed answers about when you can find out the gender of your baby? When is it possible to tell?

  • The best time to find the sex of your baby through ultrasound is between 18 and 22 months

  • They generally do an ultrasound around 20 weeks. Assuming Baby cooperates, you should be able to tell then.

  • I found out at 18 weeks with my 1st, 19 weeks with my 2nd, and 15 weeks 5 days with my current pregnancy. All were accurate.

  • 12 weeks at the earliest - though most doctors wait until 16-20 weeks when it is easier to determine the presence/absence of male genitals.

  • All of the above are right but ask your doctor when he/she plans to do it and then you'll know.

  • My ob told me the best times to find out are from 18-22wks. That way they can be 100% sure what the baby's gender is.

  • I was told around 18 weeks. You may find out earlier, but have them check a few more times when they do an ultrasound. Little boys have been known to hide things and umbilical cords have made for some blue girl rooms.

  • 20 weeks at the earliest. I prefer 24 cuz the baby is a lil bigger and things ar easier to see especially for a girl and then again he/she has to cooperate. its best if they can check that first my babies have all been fussy you poke 'em too much and they just curl right up!
