View Full Version : Finding out the gender?
01-01-2012, 09:09 AM
How far along were you when you found out the sex of the baby & what is the earliest possible? I'll be 13 weeks 5 days on my next appt. but its just for regular testing/blood work (no u/s unless needed for a reason) I'm just curious as to when everyone else found out...:D

I found out at 19 weeks with my first two pregnancies and 18 weeks with the most recent pregnancy. I know gender can be detected earlier than that though - sometimes if it's too early, it's not always accurate.

I was about 21 weeks with DS and 18 weeks with this one.

18 weeks here! They triple checked (even in 4D) since I was at my MFM appointment.
I know ladies who found out at 15 weeks. One person I know found out at 16 weeks, but later in her pregnancy, it turned out the 16 week ultrasound was wrong.
Have you heard of the nub theory?
22 weeks with DD and 18 with this LO

19 Weeks with my oldest and 23 weeks I think with my youngest.

didn't find out with DD but found out at 19 weeks 3 days with this one.
we have someone in the may dd room that found out the gender at 12 or 13 weeks...and turned out they were wrong, lol. she thought she was having a boy this whole time and at her 20 week u/s they found out it is actually a girl. so if you cant wait it out, do that because you've got a lot higher chance of them being wrong if you find out too early, lol

I was 19 weeks.. I'm pretty sure before 18 weeks or so can be inaccurate. I have an MD friend who did a us at 16 weeks and was pretty sure she had a girl and boy, but 2 weeks later saw two boys!

Thanks for the info girls...I'm going to hold out until the 20 week scan just to make sure they get it right! LOL That will be on Valentines Day! YAY....

With my triplets they told me at 13 weeks in the office that baby B was a boy and at 16 weeks they told me that other two were boys. The twins they told me at 16 week scan. I had weekly ultrasounds from 9weeks until delivery with both pregnancies so we knew they were right.

15 weeks with the triplets, and right around there with Jericho too...though we tried to be Team Green, they just noted it in the file.

At 12 weeks they said boy, then admitted they were wrong at 19 weeks. I've heard no earlier than 15-16 weeks for accurate results. Good luck!

All were correct :)

with dd I found out at 20 wks ... With ds I found out at 18 weeks.... However, my friend had a 12 wk ultrasound and the tech said she was pretty sure he was a boy, and he was... (tmi) he also has always had a much bigger penis than most kids his age, so that probably helped...

I found out both times at 20 weeks. My dr's office doesn't like to do it sooner.

I found out at 12 weeks with DS. It was confirmed at 18 weeks. But we could see his parts at his 12 week ultrasound.

I think its fairly routine to find out after 18 weeks. Before that, sometimes you can tell, but its not as accurate.

#1: 18 weeks
#2: 17 weeks

Found out with my last at 13 weeks and it was confirmed weekly from there on out. Although the u/s tech told me at the 13 week u/s she was 99% sure, but it was still early to be 100%.
01-15-2012, 08:08 PM
20 weeks with my lo and it was correct. I think it's easier to tell if it's a boy then if it's a girl. My friend found out at 16 weeks with both of hers and they were correct.

17 weeks for me. :)

I was 20 weeks. I have known a few people that got it done at 16 weeks and it was correct.
The babies were measuring just over 14wks at my first u/s. The tech told me what he thought the sexes were but said there was no guarantee. At my next u/s (19-ish wks), they confirmed that the first tech was right -- a boy and a girl.
