  • 10 Weeks would not be very accurate. The best time to see is between 18 and 22 weeks (baby isn't too small or too cramped). I've heard a lot of ppl are able to tell at around 15 weeks, but I always waited so it was more accurate.

  • My doc told me I was having a boy at 15w... then confirmed a girl at 19w. Imagine my surprise! I don't think they can tell with any real accuracy before 16w.

  • Most doctors wait until about 20 weeks to tell the sex of the baby. The sex organs are not clear enough for them to see before then to be sure. And either way knowing the sex of your baby is never 100% until after baby is born. A lot of people were told that they were having a boy/girl only to have the other at birth.

  • My niece just found out at 13 weeks and that was really early. They usually won't even check until like 17-20 weeks.

  • ok scratch that. Apparently 13weeks was too early too. She just had another U/S today at 18 weeks and it's a girl not a boy like they thought in the first U/S. haha
