How many weeks to know sex of baby?????????

Hi i was just wondering at how many weeks you can tell the sex of a bub? I have read from 12-20. I know it dose sometimes depend upon the position of the baby and the ability to see genitals through ultrasound but say everything is visible what is the earliest possibility of finding out the sex.

Most books I read say 16 weeks but I've known people to find out at 14 weeks.

I did not find out until 27 weeks.  They tried to look at 25 weeks but the baby wouldn't cooperate.  It's a girl!

i found out at 18 weeks.  that is the earliest they would let me.  i had a u/s at 12 weeks where i clearly saw a boy part.  i asked the tech and she said that all babies have bumps there at 12 weeks.  i had the same tech at 18 weeks who verified the boy part.  she said where i live she was not allowed to tell me the sex at 12 weeks because if i didnt like what i heard i could "change my mind" due to the sex.  (i would never do that but i guess some people may)  i never actually verified whether she was telling the truth about all babies have bumps there.  so i guess the answer may be it depends on where you live.

I found out at 17wks then verified at 21wks, 24wks, and again at 25wks.... So I guess I'm really having a little girl lol.

I found out at 20 week ultrasound.  I waited until I was actually 21 weeks because the clinic told me 22 would be best.  I compromised lol.  She said it's a girl and didn't seem unsure.  It took FOREVER for us to find out though!  I mean I was so uncomfortable on that table!  I brought some orange pop with me and downed it and finally got her to stop laying with her back to us and open her legs long enough to tell!
