Ultrasound timing
myboys79 posted:
I've been just lurking for a few weeks now but I have a question if anyone can help me. I went for my 12wk appointment today (got to hear the hearbeat!) and they scheduled my 20wk ultrasound. Well they scheduled it for September 21st which would put me at 17wks. My husband and I really want to find out the gender of the baby but I'm worried that this will be to early. This is my 3rd pregnancy and it seemed to me my ultrasounds was more between 20-22wks. I checke around on webmd and it said 18-22wks, so I guess it's just a week. Maybe I'm just being paranoid! Hee Hee! What do you ladies think? Will that be late enough to see the gender? Do you think I should call the clinic and see if they can move it back a week or two?

no way!!! 17 weeks is perfect for finding out gender. The closer you get to 20 weeks the more room baby takes up and the more curled up they get. genitals are fully formed and easy to find at 17 weeks. I wouldnt change the appointment.

Oh good! See I knew I was just being paranoid:) This pregnancy has been flying by for me so I think when I looked at the calendar and saw the date is only a little over a month away I freaked. It seems like just yesterday when I got my positive test! :)

Thanks much!
