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.

When can I find out the gender?

1 answers
I am 10 weeks pregnant now and going to the doctor in 2 weeks. She told me that I would be able to hear the heartbeat then. I go back at 16 weeks. Will I be able to find out the gender then? I'm so anxious!!

Tpyicially you need to wait till your 18-20 week ultrasound. As that's the only they will be able to find out for you. They like to wait till then as it's more confirmed and be more certain about it. Of course this is if the baby cooperating for you and positioned to tell. Although the technicians can be 99% sure they are still not 100% accurate either so do keep that in mind just in case that slim, very slim, possiblity happens to you. It's very exciting to get to hear the heart beat and seeing your baby on the screen during the ultrasound and I am guessing to find out the gender (I never did with all 3 of mine) so best of luck to you.  Hope the baby's going to work with you so you can find out. :)
