18 weeks, can you tell gender

Hi, i'm going to be 18 weeks next week and scheduled my level 2 ultrasound. i was wondering if you can see the gender of the baby this early, or should i wait another week or 2 to be more certain?

Yes! You can definately see the gender of the baby at this time! That is if the little one cooperates! Good luck!

We found out that we are having a little boy at our 18 week u/s. So yes they can tell as long as the little one cooperates! Phin had his legs crossed right until the end of the u/s..

We found out what we were having at 18w5d... they said without a doubt it was a girl.  She was missing all the "boy parts" so it was pretty evident that we were having a girl.  Like Kele, our baby didn't cooperate until the last 5 minutes... so we weren't sure if we were going to be finding out.  Good luck and I hope that you are able to see what you are having!!
