  • They usually like to wait till 18-20 weeks but sometimes they can see at 15 or 16....if they can tell they will let you know if not then they'll bring you back.

  • It is possible. But my baby wouldn't show me until I was 35 weeks.

  • I found out at 15 weeks, but I went and had a 4D ultrasound done. I dont know if the traditional ultrasound can pick it up that early..
    But I went to my Dr for a traditional ultrasound at about 17-18 weeks, and they also said it was a girl...
    Good luck!!!
