6 weeks and counting :-)

I am 6 weeks and 3 days.  How long do I have to be to determine the sex of my baby?

Re: 6 weeks and counting :-)

  • My Doc refuses to even guess until 20 weeks. 16 is the bare minimum, before that it all kind of looks the same.

  • Long answer:

    If you look around at the "gender determination ultrasound" places (which, drives me crazy, cause you find out the physical sex, not gender. but w/e ;) ) they'll say 16 weeks is the minimum. Mostly because before then, things still REALLY look the same. Just google some images of the differences in a boy and girl at 15 weeks (several pictures, not just one or two as all babies form at different rates) you'll see how similar they are. 

    Short answer: 16 weeks.
