Was your 18 week ultrasound "clear"?????

You can get the BIG ultrasound anywhere from 17-21 weeks, well I scheduled at 18 weeks 6 days..... The tech said it might not be as "clear" as if I waited another week. I thought by then they should be able to see EVERYTHING and gender! What do u think? Experience with u/s at 18 weeks?

  • If the baby is positioned right they can see everything.

  • I never had any problems seeing everything at 18 weeks, except my 3rd (daughter) who wasn't positioned right - but I already had 2 boys so my ob did an ultrasound at every appointment until she turned around!

  • Mine are so old that they have been updated since then, my eldest is 33. Now you can see a lot more in those ultra sounds!

  • They were bale to tell my twins were boys at 17wks. You should be fine.

  • My doctor won't do them until after 20 wks for that very reason.
