Hi everyone,

I have been counting down the days till my ultrasound where hopefully we'll find out the gender of our baby. I am so ecstatic and excited I almost can't contain myself.

My ultrasound in January 30th, and I will be 18 weeks two days. 

Were you able to find out at 18 weeks? I understand that these things aren't always 100% but I would like them to be pretty sure. My doctor says yes, but the other doctor says 20 weeks?

I would love to hear any stories about when  you found out and such. :) Thanks!


Update:

This is awesome. I'm so glad that 18 weeks seems to have a pretty positive outcome. Lol my hubby is hoping for a boy so bad. But when I asked him, "Well what if it's a girl are you going to be disappointed?" and immediately he answered, "No! but how will we afford all her clothes?" It made me laugh so hard that he is so concerned if he have a girl about boyfriends and her clothes....etc it was super cute though.

20 weeks will be more accurate, but I've known of women who found out at 18-19 weeks and it was correct.

Yes, and since I had to have weekly ultra sounds because the high risk pregnancy, I begged them every week to double check. I wanted a boy so bad and they said I was having a girl! I was so upset! But I wouldn't trade dd for a million boys!
