I was just wondering how far along you have to be before the doc can tell if its a boy or a girl?

I've never had the CVS testing done before but according to the article I linked to you, they can tell the sex when the test is done. I would ask your doctor for more details about it but this is what it said:

Chorionic villus sampling is another way you can find out the sex of your baby. Visit your OB/GYN in early pregnancy and schedule a CVS test. This test is usually done between eight and 11 weeks (and sometimes as late as 13 weeks) of pregnancy. If the baby's mother or father has a genetic disorder, such as Tay-Sachs disease or cystic fibrosis, CVS testing can determine whether your baby has the disorder. It can also tell you the sex of your child.

Hi there!

Usually the most common way an OB can tell the sex of baby is via ultrasound.
