  • Generally they try to find out at your 20 week ultrasound. I found out at 26 weeks because he was in a bad position during the first one. Good luck!

  • 20 weeks is generally when the sex organs are formed enough to tell..... good luck

  • I was told by my ultrasound technician that we could find out the sex of the baby around 20 weeks... we decided that we wanted it to be a surprise though! :-) says that you can most easily find out the sex between 18 and 26 weeks. Good luck!!!

  • i found out the sex of my baby boy (well know 5yr old) but still my baby well i was about 5 1/2 months. i am not sure though when the earliest that they can find out. Good Luck and hope you find out sooner with this one.

  • they can tell a little earlier than 20 weeks but they typically wait until 20 because they want to be sure. it just depends on ur doctor/ultrasound tech. i went in at 19 weeks and the baby had his legs closed so i found out at 21 weeks, which is the first week i felt him move too.. pretty exciting

  • anywhere from 16-22 weeks they try to determine... I don't want to know though, so they better not friggin tell me after I insist on not knowing!

  • I was told 18-20 weeks...i'm excited about mine too (i'm only 12 weeks) so i've been trying to see when I can find out too.

  • don't let them lie! they can tell with a 3-d scan at 14 weeks! (it may cost you, though)

  • i found out at 18 weeks and 4 days.
    someone i knew found out at 13 weeks.

    so it is possible if the technician is really good at what s/he does, but not completely as accurate as waiting longer.

  • Twenty weeks, generally, though sometimes they can tell at sixteen...all depends on how cooperative your baby is feeling!
