Baby S Gender

Has anyone had an Ultrasound Early in pregnancy like 12-14 weeks and was able to see the gender? I had my normal sono at 11 weeks for dates, We saw the baby and the heart and everything looks PERFECT. YAY! But I am having another sono Next week. I will be 13 weeks then and we are looking for gender?

Personally me - no. This is my first. But from all the reading I have done, they say that the genatalia is fully developed and recognizable by twelve weeks, but that to make a call on the s_x is very iffy, as it is so small yet, it is easy to make a mistake. I think that is why they usually wait till baby is around that 18-20 week mark. I wish you all the luck in finding out though!! Very exciting!!

As the person above me said, the parts are formed and visible, but almost impossible to detect even via ultrasound at such a young gestational period. You will almost certainly be able to tell during your "big" 18 or 20 week u/s. I bet you could ask the tech to guess, but he or she may not want to even try because it would be nothing more than a guess at this point. It's too bad we have to wait so long, isn't it?

14 weeks is usually the earliest they can be sure.

But you can't go off of that though...because you may find out its a girl and have a boy because it isn't visible. I always think before 20 weeks you can't really go off. I know so many people who found out at 16-18 weeks and it was least 3 people.

Thanks ladies! I actually work at the Image Facility so I am VERY confident in the Tech that will be doing my scan. There are at least 3 people at work I can think of that found out boy between 12-14 weeks and sure enough! With my DD we thought at 14 weeks Girl (pretty sure, but couldnt say 100%) then at 16 weeks knew for sure(Saw the labia). So I am kinda thinking if this little bean will show us the goods will we have a pretty good Idea. If there is something there we will lean towards boy and if not then girl, Ofcourse either way I will go back in about 2-3 weeks from that one and do another around 15-16 weeks to take another peek. Then get my real scan done at 20 weeks :) I am addicted to see our little one grow in there :)!!!
