  • I've always heard that you should wait until 20 weeks to be able to tell for sure.

  • I have always been told that the sex organs are not developed enough to see untill about 20 weeks....sometimes later.

  • I would wait till 20 weeks. At 14 weeks its possible your fetus still has its indifferent penis (if its a girl it basically inverts is the best way to describe what happens) so you may get a reading of boy but end up being a girl with nothing but blue to wear ;) Wait it out and when it drives you crazy write your baby letters. That helped me wait and I didnt get to see until 25 weeks because he was stubborn

  • I found out at 15 weeks but I was at a ultrasound specialist AND my baby happened to be in a very convenient position. Not to mention he was "blessed" lol. It was very obvious!

  • I found out I was having a boy at 15wks on a regular ultrasound. So, I'd say you probably could tell at 14wks on a 3D ultrasound.

  • Those mall ultrasounds with the 3D don't work well when the baby is so young. They will usually only do the gender check for you with the regular 2D ultrasound, especially when you are that early.

    It is possible to tell the gender via ultrasound at 14 weeks, however, as others have stated you really cannot be sure.

    If you have an amniocentesis then you will know for a fact 100% what you are having and you can do that now. The problem with that is that your dr has to agree with it and there has to be a good reason to do it other than a gender check.

    good luck! I am 24 weeks and after three ultrasounds I still don't know! I have a baby who likes to keeps his/her legs crossed.
