At how many weeks did you find out the sex?

I have an ultrasound next Friday, it was originally supposed to be almost 3 weeks ago. So I wasn't able to ask my doctor what the chances are of finding out the sex. But it will be 1 day before I reach 17 weeks. Do you think that is too soon to find out? And if we do find out as long as baby cooperates do you think it would be less accurate than waiting until after 20 weeks?

The reason I am asking is that I had an ultrasound around 24 weeks with DS & they told me he was a girl. I think the tech just wasn't too smart though because I said I thought it kind of looked like a boy when she showed us the money shot. But it was my first and I really had no idea. I just went along with it because she said she was 98% sure. Luckily I had another around 30 weeks & found out she was a HE lol.

I found out at 20 weeks, and it was extremely obvious what i'm having.. 17 weeks is a little small, but you'll more than likely be able to tell.

I was 19 weeks, I'm sure if your having a boy, at 17 weeks they should see his 'bits' !!! Goodluck, if not they'll be another time when you can find out :)

I was 21 weeks with this one and something like 28 weeks with my first, but I have a friend who was 14 weeks when they told her she was having a girl, and they double checked when she was 18 weeks and it was still a girl.
