How many weeks were you when you found out if you were having a boy or girl with this pregnancy or previous ones?
I had scheduled my ultrasound for 18 weeks to have a better chance at finding out the gender, but because of the contractions they moved it up to tomorrow! Of course the most important part is to make sure everything is ok and cervix is staying closed and what not, but I REALLY want to find out if this little one is a boy or girl!
I know I have seen some find out by 16 weeks, but I just wanted to know how probable it would be to find out tomorrow!
I am pretty sure they will do anatomy stuff as well since they are sending me to a specialist's office for the ultrasound. I had to go there with my pregnancy last time as well for the same thing. Only with Mason I was 28 weeks when I had to go have my cervix checked out, but I also just looked through my u/s pics from him and I even had 3d pics from that u/s to. That office will switch over to 3d every time you get an u/s I think, at least they did with my pregnancy with Mason, and I had like 5 u/s there last time at 18, 25, 28, 31, and 34 weeks.
I'm not sure how I ended up with so many u/s last time! LOL I know at the 18 they didn't see the heart as good as they wanted so I went back at 25. The 28 week one was the one where they had to check my cervix out and such after I had been in L&D for contractions, and I'm not sure about the 31 and 34 weeks. Oh I think one they had a kidney thing to check out that turned out completely fine.
I won't be finding out until 19 weeks (found out at 18 with my son). They should be able to tell at 16 weeks, but it's not as accurate as it is at 18-20 weeks.

I found out at 20 weeks with DD, and 19 with this one. I had an ultrasound at 16 weeks with DD, and they were able to tell me that she was probably a girl, but they couldn't say for sure at that point. I think it will just depend on how well baby cooperates. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you!
I was 16 weeks 4 days when we had the ultrasound with this little guy and there's no doubt, definitely boy (I still have the pictures up in my thread, maybe a page or two back by now since it was Sunday).
I was about 18 weeks with DD1, just under 18 weeks (a day or two under) with DD2 and almost 20 weeks with DS. With DD2 they said 80% but part of that was her positioning not how far along I was.
DD1- July 2004
DD2- April 2006
DS1- December 2009
DS2- August 2011
I had an u/s at 16 weeks with my first and they said 80% sure he was a boy, confirmed at 20 weeks. With my second my u/s was at 19 weeks and no doubt he was a boy. this time I havnt had an u/s yet but the midwives office usually does them at 20 weeks.
Mine was at 19w, and my OB wouldn't schedule it before 18w.
With my ds I found out at 14 wks that he was a boy but now they won't tell u untill your 22 wks along I'm sooo impatient lol
