Can you really find out the baby's sex at 17 weeks??


I just had my 13 wk. 2 day check up and my doctor said at my next appointment (will be 17 weeks and 4 days at that point) I'll have my next ultrasound and can find out the sex of the baby. I thought you had to wait until 20 weeks? Will I really be able to know at my next appointment?? I really hope so!!

The only reason people are having to wait until 20 weeks is because that is when their scan is. Private clinics will offer gender scans from 16 weeks onwards. I presume the later it is the more likely they are to be 100% correct though.

I was told if they can tell you the sex at 20week scan its 95% accurate.
I was told girl at my first scan with dd1 (which was at 16weeks)
and told the sex at 19weeks 4days this time

Yes i found out at 16+4 that i was having a baby boy at a private scan and that was confirmed today at my 20 week. She actually said she is yet to prove these private clinics wrong and every time somebody comes in saying they've had a private scan she really wants to prove them wrong but never has lol xx
