Hi ladies -

Sorry I've been a bit quiet.

They can tell you at 16 weeks if the babies are showing off! With my first set, they told me boys at 13 weeks and 15 weeks for sure. With this set, I had an ultrasound at 14 weeks and they wouldn't even look- said it was too early to tell. Then at my last ultrasound at 17.4 weeks my doc kept saying again it was too early, but I know it wasn't. He halfheartedly looked for me and then said he thought 2 boys. So, it all depends on the tech or doc who does it, they CAN tell but sometimes they won't until later like 20 weeks. Good luck, I hope they see something for you!

Well, I had a CVS done at 12.5 weeks, so we knew then. However, I also have had OHSS and had ovarian torsion surgery at 6 weeks. So, at 14 weeks, they sent me to a place to scan my ovaries really well to make sure there was blood flow. And they were able to see REALLY well even then what the sex was. So, we would have found out at 14 weeks regardless.

We found out one baby was a boy quite early on, I think it was around 17 weeks maybe? The girl we had to wait until 22 weeks to confirm because she would not cooperate!

They gave me (what turned out to be an accurate) guess at 14 weeks and confirmed at 16 and 20. :-)

Just before 17 wks is when I found out. This is the first time we've found out as my husband thinks we should not find out in advance.
