    14 Week U/S Tell Gender or Not?
    lbcash posted:
    I am 13 weeks today. I am pregnant with my second child. I have Crohn's disease and I was not diagnosed and it wasn't active with my first child (who just turned 4 this weekend). With my first pregnancy I had only one ultrasound at 20 weeks to check the status of the baby and it's gender. This pregnancy my doctor is doing an ultrasound every 6 weeks. What is the earliest they can tell the gender on an ultrasound?

    16-18 weeks normally

    I found out the gender of both my babies at 15 weeks. I think this is the earliest you would be able to get a clear picture.

    adalexnaya replied to wardcj's response:
    Not true :) I found out at 13 weeks with this one, they said its "the angle o the dangle. Boys stick out whereas a girl is in line with the spine or point downward... The earliest possible is actually 12 and half weeks :)
    lbcash replied to adalexnaya's response:
    Oh I am super excited now. I am excited anyway just to see that the baby is doing ok, but the thought that I could possibly find out the gender too is really exciting. Thanks for all of your replies.
