Vaginal Ultrasound...

Are they able to tell the sex of a baby when a vaginal ultrasound is done if you are only 14wks? I have to have one done once a month from here on out and was wonder if and when they were able to tell the sex of the baby

  • It is possible but not likely. Usually closer to 18-21 weeks before they get a good look.

  • Too early to tell the sex of the baby. My daughter in uteuro always had her hand down there so we weren't able to tell until she was born. With my son, I had to have 2 amnios.

  • 14 weeks is to early.
    The closer to 20 weeks the better.

  • It is sometimes possible that early, especially with a vaginal scan. If they do tell you be sure and ask them how certain they are, and wait until you get the same answer at the following ultrasound before you do too much gender specific shopping.

  • It's likely too early, sometimes they can "tell: but make a mistake. I was told we were having a girl at 14 weeks; he ended up being a boy :) I wouldn't buy anything gender specific until you are past 20 weeks or so.

  • Usually the Vag over the belly kind is done to predict a due date and the baby is too small to see the traditional way... in which case it means that you are not far enough along to tell male from female just yet

  • Possible, but not likely to be super accurate. Wait unti your 20 week.
