Did you find out what you were having before 16 weeks?

I have an ultrasound scheduled today but I'm 15w 1d.... Any chance we're going to see the sex?

  • Yep, at 13 weeks. A lot of people don't believe me, but it happened. If I remember correctly, genitals differentiate around 10-11 weeks, and they are completely different at 12 weeks. I was having an ultrasound for a problem I was having, and I asked her if she could tell the gender yet. She said probably not, but it's possible at 13 weeks. She was surprised it was so clear. She said if my son had been a girl, she never would have said anything to me, but it was so obviously a boy, she told me.

  • I'm not sure the baby is developed enough to see he relevant parts, I could be wrong though!

  • I read that it is possible but not as likely as 16 weeks.... I just wanted to hear from women first hand.

  • Probably not. Even 16 weeks is early. They attempted with me at 18 weeks, and the tech warned me it may not be accurate.

  • At 13 weeks you can't tell the difference between a penis and a clitoris. Look up Lennart Nilsons, A Child is Born. He has intrauterine pics, clear as day at 13 weeks. You cannot tell the difference. Your tech probably did a lucky guess.

  • It's probably possible but not as accurate as if you'd have it at 20 weeks. Bet your excited now though!
