About Sex Of Baby And Ultrasound

Can a regular c__ppy ultrasound machine determine the s_x of the baby at 17 weeks or does it need to be a high resolution US (3-D) ? We have an appointment on Thursday and will get a basic US. I am not sure if the genitals are visible at this stage on something so primitive. Thanks:)

I had just a regular us and they could tell that I was having a boy. I was also 22 weeks when I had it. A friend of mine is 15 weeks and they said she is having a boy also. So yes they can tell what you are having.

it's not always 100% acurate I think..they can usually tell but the s_x is more acurate the farther along you are. Also..sometimes that early on the baby will not let you get a look. Mine had its legs in the way lol

Usually it is best to wait until at least 18 weeks, but 20-24 is better to try and find out the s_x. If they say it is a boy, it usually is. But, if they say it's a girl they could be wrong! Well, they could be wrong either way. My first son was a girl, until he was born. I had everything for a girl and no boy names picked out. So, beware and good luck. Yes, regular US machines can tell what the s_x is. But high resolution machines are more detailed.

Are you going to be having an amniocentesis?

I hope not:) That would scare me as I am a wimp with needles and from what I have heard, they are huge.

They're not too bad and they are very accurate when telling the babys s_x. But there is a slightly increased risk of miscarriage with them I was told. I think they should be able to tell from the scan (unless like with my daughter they cross their legs!) I'd wait until 20 weeks if I were you. Thats when its usually done :)
