Just curious to see how far along each of you were when you finally found the sex of your baby. My doctor says they dont ususally ultra sound untill 20 weeks. It seems like i found out faster with my first pregnancy! Have any of you tried the boy or girl tests they sell at drug stores? do they actually work? i guess im geting a little anxious, i am 17 weeks along and chrismas is comming up, i just really want to know before chrismas.

I had an ultrasound at 15wks to determine my due date (switched drs since we moved back to colorado) and the tech told us then she was fairly certain it was a girl. we went in at 20 weeks and she confirmed that it was definitely a girl.

Yeah I had a 2D ultrasound at 15 weeks cuz they thought I may possibly be at risk for complications, luckily the ultrasound revealed that everything was normal and I was not high risk after all. What a relief! Anyways the technician said she would bet her paycheck on the fact that it was a girl and that i was 3 weeks ahead anatomy wise so I got to find out this early at just 15 weeks :)

I was just 15 weeks along when I found out the sex...it was a girl and the technician said she would bet her paycheck on it she was that sure it was a girl. I am now 23 weeks along and have not had another ultrasound yet due to them being so expensive. Will get one last one in my 3rd trimester for the full anatomy scan and see if they say the same gender ;)

For my first pregnancy with my twins, I found out at 18 weeks I was having a b/g set. For my current pregnancy I also found out at 18 weeks that I am going to have a little boy.

I found out with my first at 20 weeks, but had to wait until 25 weeks for my second. It was really annoying. I have heard that you can sometimes see the sex before 20 weeks however, they simply don't do unnecessary ultra sounds because they are expensive.

I haven't found out yet, but my appt is at 20 and a half weeks. I am 18 weeks right now. Mine just happened to work out better for me that way with stuff happening at work, so I am actually a little off in appts because I should have gone this week, but have to wait until later when I have more time to go in! I cannot wait to find out though!

I had an ultrasound at 16wks. He said he was petty sure it was a girl, but not to go crazy buying stuff just yet. I had my 'detailed' scan at 20wks from the hospital tech, and he was right at 16wks - it''s a girl.

I found out when they did the big "check for everything" ultrasound when I was 18 weeks. It's a girl! It was so funny, I guess she was sitting indian style and suddenly they have this shot (which they so kindly printed out for me to embarrass her with later) of her legs wide open and nothing is there! Haha. So simple. I might have found out sooner if my appointment was sooner. They tried to guess when I was 13 weeks but couldn't promise anything.

With my first I found out at 18 weeks we were having a boy. With our second we took the intelligender test at almost 14 weeks & it said a boy-but have to wait until i'm 24 weeks (stupid army hospital) to find out if it really is a boy or a girl.

I found out I am having a girl at 20 weeks and 4 days pregnant. My OB wouldn't even schedule my UltraSound until I was atleast 20 weeks although I have heard of some ladies finding out as early as 16 to 18 weeks. It was well worth the wait though when we did find out. Good luck with your baby and Congrats!!!

Well I took a intelligender test at 15 weeks and it said girl. I had a ultrasound at 16 weeks and it was also girl. If you take the intelligender test at home you should follow the instructions to a T one false move can give you a false positive. Good luck!!

I found out at my 20 week ultrasound but my gut told me I was having a boy. I also had three dreams that he was a boy. At the ultrasound she guessed he was a girl, but he was being uncooperative and finally showed himself to the world (that's a funny ultrasound picture - his dingle sticking straight up!!!) I just had another ultrasound (35 weeks) and that one confirmed he is a boy. So thankful because redecorating the nursery would be a real bummer right now.

I found out with my first when I went for my 20 week ultrasound that i was having a girl. I also found out at 19 week that I'm having another girl. A friend of mine found out at Ithink it was at her 12 week ultrasound that she was having a boy but her 20 week ultrasound she found out it was a girl. As much as you want to know now I'd wait till your 20 week ultrasound.

I have a 1 year old son and at my 12 weeks ultrasound they said "it looked like a boy", but wouldnt tell me 100%. so i had to wait until 22 weeks to find out indeed it was a boy. You can get one sooner (but your insurance probably wont pay for it)
