    How many of you were successful at finding out the sex of your baby at 16 weeks? I have a level 2 anatomy scan in two weeks, and wondering what the success rate of determining the sex is for that time...

    Wondering if I should not get too excited about finding out so early...

    The further you are, the easier it is for them to tell, but they wouldnt offer gender scans at 16 weeks if they couldn't do it x x

    i had my private scan at 15+3 and then reconfirmed at 20 week scan that its a boy. both time the tech was quite sure and i think after 16 weeks it depends on the baby position and coopreration. good luck for u.:)

    I had one at 14+5 weeks, and the tech said he was "300%" sure it was a girl. And he was right! (reconfirmed at 20 weeks) :flower:

    Just had a gender scan today and even though it's early (13 weeks 4 days) the tech said she was almost positive it was a girl. She's invited me back next week for a free scan to reconfirm. Woohoo!
