Is it normal to have to wait until your 22 weeks to find out the gender of your baby?

  • Basically because insurances don't cover gender sonograms so they tell you the gender at the anatomy scan which is covered. If u get gender scan done early it's an active procedure and you will be charged for it.

  • Yep, they do it between 19-22 weeks. My first was done at 21 weeks, 2nd baby was at 19 weeks and my 3rd was at 20 weeks.

  • Some go as early as 18 weeks but you don't always get to see the gender that early. I went at 20 weeks with both of mine.

  • my dr wasnt going to tell me until my 25 week app, so i went to an ultrasound tech at 20 and paid 50 dollars to find out. im a pretty impatient person though. lol

  • 19 to 22 weeks is very typical. That is when they get the most accurate gender ultra sound and when they do diagnostics on measurements.
