Most gender ultrasounds are done between 18-24 weeks depending in your doctor.

Most ultrasounds for gender are done around 20 weeks.  I was having an ultrasound done at 15 weeks with my first and they were able to tell then he was a boy.  With girls sometimes they have to wait until 20wks to be able to tell for sure.

I found out at 15 weeks pregnant and it was correct towards the end of my pregnancy

My next appointment is sept 17th I'll be 15 weeks on sept 18th do you think it would be okay to ask about the sex? If they could at least give a guess? I'm going nuts not knowing lol

You can find out by asking your doctor if they can do a 3d sonogra. And find  out faster if you're so curious about the gender. I just found out about it  ...

I heard they can tell between 16 and 20 weeks. My ultrasound tech said she would do u/s at 19wks since the longer you wait the more accurate it is. I would prefer 16wks ;)

The hospital i go to will not do a ultrasound to check the gender until 20 weeks, but they have 3d/4d ultrasound places you can go to (look it up online) and they will have packages/prices online. They offer DVDs/teddy bear with babies heartbeat and a cd of all the ultrasound pictures :) You can start going at 14 weeks of pregnancy and if for some reason they cant tell they will have you go back free of charge a second time to re-do it :) congrats!!

I heard the 3D images were not good for you or your baby. Though, I haven't done extensive research to validate that rumor.
