    i will be going for my 20 week scan in just over a week. i have been so looking forward to it because i am dying to know what sexes my babies are. i have not even considered the fact they may be in the wrong position to find out. so i was just wondering how many of you were unable to find out the sex?

    i can understand you very well as i was also dying to know.........i had my 18.4w scan and my doc tried hard to find out but she couldn't find it due to legs crossed.
    i was also very disappointed...........but was very happy to know that baby was doing fine.......

    at next scan at 21.4w, she could tell it and even showed us and we could see it very well.


    good luck to you.......:hugs:

    hi
    i had my 20 week scan on wed and baby was all curled up with feet on its head having a snooze. took ages for the radiographer to check everything and eventually when we asked the sex she said she thought it may be a girl but really couldnt be certain for the same reason. im relieved that everything is okay but we really wanted to know, and we wont be getting any more scans. so i guess itll be a surprise.

    I didn't want to know at mine, but the sonographer said at the end of the scan that shes glad we didn't want to know as she couldn't tell as LO was all squished up :)

    We want to know too but our hospital say it's their policy not to tell!! So annoying, I don't know why. we're hoping they'll tell us anyway if we ask them enough.

    I wanted to know the sex but baby had it legs closed, sonographer thought she may have seen girl bumps but was not really 100% sure, i guess i will have to stick to neutral colours till baby comes.

    When we went for our 20 week scan the baby was to scrunched up the tech was unable to tell the sex . We had to go back two weeks later and asked if we could find out the sex and wouldn't you know it the baby had it's legs crossed . She got me to walk around for a little bit to get the baby to move into a differant position . We're told we're having a girl but the tech wasn't 100% sure so we're going to be keeping things pretty gender neutral just incase .

    We had 20 week scan this past Wednesday and the baby wasn't in the right position to see parts. We actually went twice on Wednesday but he/she didn't want us to know just yet :)

    We couldn't find out either. Baby was fast asleep with legs crossed throughout. Looks like we'll have to wait for the surprise!

    wow ...i am glad i read how many of you could not find out. it may not be so disheartning not to find out if i am prepared that i may not. some of you said you would pay for a private scan to find out if needed? i never heard of that. anyone know if that is an option in ontario?

    You can tell as early as 15/16 weeks but it depends on baby cooperation and hospital equipments.

    ditto :lol:

    We have ours on Weds @ 18w1d and I am so convinced we will find out that it's bound to be sleeping with hands over privates so we'll never see :lol:

    Does drinking Coke or something beforehand wake it up and make it jump around a bit? I have always felt kicks after the caffeine hit so maybe that'll make sure it's changing position enough :lol:
