Will we find out?

I have my second ob appointment Jan 19, I'll be about 5 months along (my first appointment was nov 19..we moved cross country and when I finally found a doc that would take my insurance the only time they could get me in was Jan 19...not the greatest I know! No bashing please!) so will we find out the sex of the baby at this appointment?

  • Yes I would say you should unless the little guy/gal is not cooperating! I found out at 17 weeks.

  • It could be possible but sometimes they wont cooperate mine turned around and put her little feet wherever the machine moved most of the pics i have from that time are feet or she was turning around like she was mooning the doctor lol I found out she was a girl when I was almost 23 weeks

    I'm going to be breaking a HUGE story on Ameros Radio next Tuesday. Eileen Dannemann from the National Coalition of Organized Women will be joining me to expose the over %2000 jump in miscarriages, stillbirths, and fetal demise when comparing 2008 to 2009 (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System). She has the V...AERS reports and the science, pointing towards a strong case for gross neglect by the CDC.

    Here is the information we will be discussing:

  • If it is your FIRST appointment with this doctor I would HIGHLY doubt it. Some places only have an ultrasound tech that comes in on certain days.

  • I would call and ask if they needed a full bladder to check the baby out... I know pregnant women almost always have a full bladder but this way the might schedule you for one when you call.
