Sex of the baby ..??

I have an appt to find out the sex of my baby but I'm only 18 weeks Can they tell at 18 weeks if it's a girl or a boy ??

Also my baby is 17 weeks and 4 days behind but realistically I'm 18 weeks .... Will that make a difference detecting the gender ?

  • I know a girl that found out when she was 15 weeks pregnant. It just depends on the position the baby is in but the babys rivate part has definitely formed by now so good luck (:

  • I think they should be able to tell as long as the baby cooperates. :) Good luck. They say the best time to check is between 18 and 22 weeks. :)

  • I was 15 weeks and couldn't tell what the gender of the baby is because Peanut had his/her backside to us. He/she has a cute little toochie:) I can't wait to see the side profile.

  • I found out what I was having at 18 weeks and then went back on week 22 and I was still having a girl! So Yes.

  • As long as you drink ALOT of water and keep your baldder extremely full and the baby cooperates then you will see. I found out at 19 weeks and at 26 weeks she was still a girl

  • They usually can tell. You could call and push the us appt back a week or 2 if you want.
