  • yes you should be able to that is most likely the reason the set up the ultrasound that is if the baby will let them you should be able to find out

  • yes, but, it may not be accurate. my friend got it done at 16 weeks and they said she was having a boy, at 18 weeks, now it's a girl. for my first pregnancy i went at 16 weeks and then again at 18 and it was still a girl... so, it's 50/50 chance the ultrasound tech is right on a gender u/s at 16 weeks. i'm pregnant again, getting my gender scan this coming friday, i will be 18 weeks and 5 days pregnant.

  • Possibly. I found out with my son at 17 weeks and it was right :-)

  • yes you should be able to. I know someone that was able to determine it at 14 weeks

  • yeah you can figure it out that early, and if they can make an accurate decision when looking at it theyll probably tell you, but if they arent completely sure, they probably wont tell you and theyll have you do one later. thats what mine did... he said oh its a little too early to tell and i scheduled one a few weeks later. but i was 18 weeks 4 days when i found out. but yes it is a possibility. i would ask the dr "can you tell what it is yet?" to just bring up the subject lol
