  • Call now and ask for an appointment in 3 weeks. It may take a month or longer to get an appointment since it's not an emergency situation.

  • The doctor will tell you when. I think it's around 20 weeks.

  • The dr usually tells you when they are going to do the ultrasound.

  • As the other two have said, your dr will tell you when to go in for your u/ for the wrong sex, no matter when you go in there is always a chance they could be wrong.....

  • YOU don't schedule the ultrasound, your doctor schedules the ultrasound. And ultrasounds are never 100% guaranteed to reveal the sex of the baby.

  • You don't order your own ultrasound, the doctor does, and they don't do it to discover the sex, they do it to make sure your baby is growing properly and healthy, the sex is just a bonus. I was 23 weeks and my last one she wasn't sitting right.

  • I had an ultrasound at 16 and 20 weeks. They both told me I was having a boy. I had one at 16 weeks just for fun because I was there for a reg. scheduled appointment but the tech wasn't busy so we just had her do one.

  • 20 to 24 weeks will be good to do it
