When were you able to figure out the gender?

I went and had my first ultrasound yesterday and the woman told me that to know for sure, I would have to wait until 20 weeks. However, she said that she could try and make a guess right there on the spot, but the baby wasn't having it. He/she sat Indian style throughout the entire ultrasound so she couldn't even take a guess. So I am just curious to know when and the story behind everyone else finding out the gender of their baby.

  • I was lucky because my boys were not ever shy. There was no mistaking the gender.

  • It is pretty standard for the Dr. to wait until 20 weeks, if the baby cooperates it is possible to find out sooner, when I worked in the ER we had a Dr. who loved to practice gender identification on us pregnant ladies and he got pretty good at around 15 weeks. But with most OBGYN they wait until 20 weeks.

  • I didn't get an ultrasound inbetween 13 weeks (which is too early) and 20 weeks, so 20 weeks is when I found out!

  • 19 weeks 5 days. They were right what I was having. I was fainting really bad for awhile at 16-17 weeks and I had to go in for an ultrasound to make sure the baby was okay. The doctor said at the time that it looked like a boy... 3 weeks later it was FOR SURE!

  • I had an ultrasound to check at 22 weeks. She had her legs crossed at the ankles with cord in between, so we couldn't tell. I had another one done at 28 weeks and she was at a difficult angle. He guessed it was a girl though from what he could see but wasn't forsure! The day before i had (39 weeks) her he did another ultrasound bc she had decreesed movement and you could see 100% baby girl! Thank god because I had prepared for a girl and to find out she was a boy would have sucked at the last minute!
