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 what I was having when I was 18 weeks, but be warned: baby might not cooperate. My daughter had her legs  crossed and was turned in a way that was very difficult for the tech to see her goods. We thought we were going to have to wait until my u/s at 22 weeks to find out. The tech left the room to ask the specialist a question, and I got up and walked around. She came back and took one last look and, lo and behold, she had uncrossed her legs!
Good luck, but remember the ultra sound is to make sure the baby is healthy, which is the most important! The sex is second.
