hey im 17yrs old...and 9weeks preg,in about 3weeks i can find out what s_x the baby is....i really want to..but afew people i know said i should wait and see....what should i do?what would you's do?

I found out both times. I wanted to prepare myself and be able to buy either blue or pink.... blue in my case! However, it is not uncommon for that to be wrong, so if you find out, and buy ahead of time, don't remove the tags from the blue or pink outfits!

You can find out at only 12 weeks? Where do you live b/c I want to move there. I am 16 weeks and still don't know.

I'd like to know, too. Where is this place you can find out so soon? That's great.

I'm from the United States. Here we have to wait until around 20 weeks. I did, anyway. I'm actually of Scottish descent. Cool, huh?

There are very few true surprizes left in this world, and for me (10 weeks preggo) I am waiting, I am looking forward to a true surprize!

I am still confused. I am in the US also. Do Scottish babies grow at a faster rate than US babies or do you have awesome technology? I am packing my bags for Scotland right now!

hehe....i dont know all i know is that you can find out the s_x of your child at 12weeks,E where about in scotland u going 2?

I don't know where I am going to stay in Scotland:) I still am having a hard time believing this... I don't think OP is lying but I never knew that Scottish babies developed faster than other babies. I always thought fetal development was relatively standard and that you had to wait until at least 15-16 weeks, maybe longer. Am I mistaken? I would love to hear more stories on this.

I think the s_x organs are external by 12 weeks, but the question is if anyone can see them on an ultrasound. Also, if you have a CVS chromosome a___lysis, which can be done from 10 to 13 weeks, you'll end up waiting a couple of weeks for the answer, but they should see the chromosomes and be able to tell. I am 12.5 now, had an US on Monday, and no one said "boo" about gender. I am actually happy with that, I agree, not too many surprised left in this world. Good luck.

p.s. maybe they count weeks differently in Scotland - like from conception instead of the start of your last period. I've been to Scotland, it is lovely.

Maybe Scotland (or at least some of the doctors there) have better technology. The US has mostly used the 2D ultrasound until the last few years. Now many OBs use 3D, and now the 4D is being introduced. Luckily, my doc has just gotten one of the 4D, and they can tell the s_x much quicker. I think it is a matter of technology more than anything.
