Telling sex at 17 weeks?

How many people found out the sex of their babe at 17 weeks? That's when I'm going for my 1st u/s, and I'm wondeing if we can tell!! I know it's still a bit early, and probably better to wait, but I'm curious! ;)

    I FOUND OUT AT 18 WEEKS BUT I KNOW YOU CAN FIND OUT AS SOON AS 12 OR 13 WEEKS, EVEN THOUGH MOST DRS MAKE YOU WAIT UNTIL 20 WEEKS.

  • Try drinking alot of COLD water before you go in to make sure she or he will move for you. Mine had her legs crossed at first too but i stayed untill we got her to move, lol, I really wanted to know. I was about 18 weeks.

    Request them to tell you but chances are you have to wait until the 24-26th week.
