  • Most people don't find out until the anatomy screen @ 18-20 weeks. 13 weeks is 3 months and 1 week.

  • I am not sure of how far along you can be before you can see, but some doctors wont even attempt to tell you until 20 weeks. I didn't find out until 8 months with my first (not sure of the weeks) that was becasue she wouldn't let us see lol. But my second and with this one my doctor didn't tell me until 20 weeks and I had ultrasounds prier to that as well and he stil didn't tell me

  • Usually at the 20 week ultrasound. That's what I've had for all 4 of my pregnancies.

  • actually you are 3 months and 1 week along.. every 4 weeks is a month in pregnancy..

    you typically will get an Ultrasound around 18 weeks and by then they can tell you what they think the sex of the baby is.

  • they don't like to guess before then because at times their genitals are fully developed at you may not guess correctly.. so around 16-18 weeks is when they develop and are easy to determine the sex without a lot of maybes.. lol.

    BUT it depends on the baby too, some babies like to be camera shy, lol.. my first there was no question, she was a girl.. my second didn't want to show her privates, so we only had a quick glance before she moved again.. she guessed a girl.. you'll notice when they are more comfortable in their guesses.. with my first she said, "it's a girl".. with my second she admitted upfront how difficult it was to even get that glance and even then she said she was only 60% sure it was a girl.. it wasn't until I had an ultra sound at 8 months to check my fluid levels that we were able to get a better look and she could say for sure girl. (she couldn't move away so fast at 8 months lol)

  • I like to avoid unnecessary interventions, so with my pregnancies: at the deliveries.

    If you are having an ultrasound perhaps after 17 weeks, probably before 23.

    Good luck!
