Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.
 

how early did you find out the sex of the baby

6 answers
I am 15 weeks pregnancyy. With my son I was told at 12 weeks that I was having a boy. With this new doctor he said he would not tell me till I was 20 weeks. I just wanted to know how early some of you guys found out what you were having?

I WAS 15 WEEKS WHEN I FOUND OUT I WAS HAVING A GIRL YOU CAN TELL THE SEX OF THE BABY IN THE 4TH OR 5TH MONTH IS WHAT MY OB SAID... BECUASE I THOUGH THAT WAS THE MOST EXCITING THING ABOUT BEING PREGNANT WAS!!! IS KNOWING WHAT YOUR HAVING IS A WODERFUL THING
I found out at 17 weeks I was having a girl. I know they can tell earlier but most doctors don't like to tell you that early because they are less accurate when the baby is that small. That is why they usually wait till 20 when everything is fully developed.
^ I agree with this ^Your baby's sex is determined by 14 weeks (or roundabouts) and a doctor can tell you, but it's a lot more accurate at 20 weeks or after. And remember, even at that point in time, sometimes they're wrong!
I found out i was having a boy at 14 weeks. However, my doctor did tell me not to do anything to extreme (like buy alot of boy items) untill i was further along and he was absoultely sure.
We were not able to find out with my first pregnancy that we were having a girl until 25 weeks because when they tried to tell earlier she didnt cooperate.. This pregnancy we are going to a different dr and she is doing another ultrasound just before I hit 20 weeks because she told me that at that point they should be able to tell and be fairly accurate where as earlier it isnt for sure.. =) good luck with your pregnancy
my mother was told that I was going to be a boy... surprise.   I want to find out soon, but am worried that technology may still not be trusted.
