  • It can be harder to tell that early, but there's always a chance they can tell.

  • It all depends on if the baby cooperates or not.

  • You might be able to tell at 16 weeks but dont get your hopes up about the accuracy.

  • I found out as early as 17 weeks but most doctors don't even give you an ultrasound until 18-20 weeks

  • For a more readable result it would be closer to 20 weeks.
