You found out the gender of your baby?

I have an appointment for my 14th of this month. I will be 16 weeks then.

We are getting it on our 16th week because my husband is deploying later this month.

My doctor also wanted to wait until I was at least 18-20 weeks, but since my husband is getting deployed she said that she would just attempt it at 16. So hopefully we can see it before he leaves.

Yep my first one cooperated. So did the second. They are both boys so it was more obvious. My girl would NOT cooperate. I got ultrasounds all the time where I worked before my official appointment at 18 weeks and she would always be in the worst position. The babys genitals are formed around 10 or 11 weeks I think, but they never do the ultrasounds until 18-20 just to be sure. But oh was it obvious with my second at 12 weeks. Girls are harder to tell.

Well good luck. Mine has changed at every appointment since we started bugging them at week 16. I am now 21 and still don't feel convinced either way, UGH! My advice, learn from our mistakes....wait til you are 20 weeks. We have created all kinds of drama and now neither one of us knows what to believe. WE are now determned that we are ....having a BABY. Becauase boy or girl they clearly have a sneaky sense of humor.
