Hey everyone! I'm having my sonogram done tomorrow morning and I am 16 weeks and I was wondering what my chances are of actually finding out the sex of my baby. I've never had one done this early....this is my fourth. Just curious...thanks...Shawna

  • As long as the baby isn't trying to hide it, they should be able to tell you. I think most guesses are accurate, but there's always the chance that they miss something...or think they see something they don't. I know a few people that this has happened to, which was a big reason I chose not to find out the sex beforehand. I'm ultra-paranoid, though. :)

  • I always had the (find out the sex ultrasound) at 20 weeks but my youngest is 18 now. LOL I bet if baby is in the right position they will be able to tell.

  • 1-someone message me and tell me what a sonogram is?!
    2-im 15 weeks and theyre going to tell me when im 18 weeks...i guess i have to wait when im DYING to know...almost litterally on that on lol
    3-the ONLY thing i know about pregnancy is at 18-20 weeks you get an ultra sound done and you can find out the gender...

    then after that i have NO IDEA what goes on with anything...no one tells me anything..i always have to ask =)
