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.

I found out at 18 weeks but most ultrasounds are scheduled around 20 weeks.
I found out at 19 weeks, I think you can find out a little sooner.... cause at 16 weeks they tired to see but he was moving around to much to get a good picture! But at 19 weeks we find out we are having a boy =)
Most drs say between 18-20 weeks is the most accurate time to try to find out.. it seems to take forever til you get to the point of finding out though.. atleast it did for my pregnancies =)
i found out at 19wks but had another ultrasound at 20wks to make sure they were right..it nice having an aunt work at a hospital lol but like they said usually between 18-20 wks
I found out at 17 weeks with my son. I had switched drs and it was my first visit and they asked if I was ready to find out. This time though I'll be about 21 weeks. It varies. Good luck and I hope you don't have too long to wait. :)
We found out at 18 weeks with our first, 21 weeks with our second and 20 weeks with our third.  It depends on your doctor and how they schedule out your appointments.  Our doctor wasn't even going to tell us this time, she was ready to turn the machine off and I had to ask what the sex was.  She said they can't tell anyone in the room unless you specifically ask to know.

depends on the doctor and kind of ultrasound, normally 18-20 weeks. We found out at 12 weeks and it wasn't a 3d ultrasound it was a normal ultrsound so I didn't believe her at first. She insisted and said she was confident telling me or she wouldn'thave said anything and sure enough when I had another ultrasound at 17 weeks it was still a boy!! I idn't even now the baby had developed as early as 12 weeks.

Try INTELLIGENDER:)) its 90% accurate and you can find out at 10 weeks, 16-20 week ultrasound is best though.
