Learning twins gender @ 16wk ultasound??

I had my first ultrasound at 8wks, because I was having what I thought was ligament pain and my hcg was through the roof, so they wanted to confirm how far along I was. Sure enough my dates were right but there was just 2 of them. I had a second one at 12 and a half weeks, everything looked good. I am schedule for my next one tomorrow at which point I will be 16wk and 4 days.
I know all parties must cooperate, but what are the chances that they will be able to tell me the genders at this point??

This is my first pregnancy so I have nothing for the babies and am anxious to do my baby shower registry and start thinking about the nursery.

Pretty good chance of learning the gender of at least one of your babies at 16 weeks!  Congratulations!!!

Yes, but make sure they get a clear veiw. I have twins and they told me that they thought baby b was a girl when i was 16 weeks but at 18 weeks he was clearly a boy. They got my hopes up for a girl and a boy, it was a little depressing for me when I found out I wasn't having a girl.

At my 17 week u/s the tech was pretty sure 1 of my twins was a girl and she said maybe the other was a boy. I found out at my 19 week u/s that both babies are definitely boys. So they can sometimes tell but sometimes it is still too early to be 100% sure.

I found out at 15 weeks. The tech could clearly see them both. And at my next appt at 19 weeks, she confirmed that it was still a boy and a girl. :)
