  • Usually yes. If the baby cooperates

  • yeah but most docs like to wait till 20wks...not for the sex but for the pictures of the development, ect. but from what i understand, it's easier to tell at 20wks than 16wks so if you can, wait a bit longer. for boys, sometimes they don't "develop" until then, sometimes it can be later. if i remember right it could be up to 23wks for boys to show...? not saying that's always the case though

  • Some people can, but most doctors prefer to wait until 18-20 weeks to do gender determination.

  • Yes you can find out as early as 12 weeks. I found out with my first at 18 weeks, second at 12 weeks, and third at 20 weeks.

  • You can find out that early but its more accurate when an ultrasound is done between 18 and 22 weeks.
