  • Most people are 20 weeks, though if you have an earlier ultrasound, it's possible they can's just less likely to be correct. :)

  • The earliest is usually 17 wks, and they usually can tell for sure at 20 wks. At my hospital they do a "20 wk survey" at 20 wks and 0 days, so u dont have to wait extra for a US haha

  • Since I am pregnant with twins I have an ultrasound at EVERY visit. They were able to tell the "little boy parts" at my visit at 16 weeks. It just depends on the tech and if your baby is cooperating :)
