Most people find out around 20 weeks but it depends on when your dr does your anatomy scan and if the baby cooperates.

Yup 20 weeks don't worry time flies. Sometimes around 17 weeks but its not so accurate its better at 20 weeks

I found out at 16weeks but my doctor told me at 13 weeks she thought it was a boy sure enough it is....but i get an ultrasound every time i go to the doctors

Don't get too excited even at 20 weeks, with my first she did not cooperate until 28 weeks along! And this one I went in at 21 weeks and she would not show off, I had to wait until 23 weeks! It is really nice to know the gender, and I was with you on the anxiety, but you have to be patient so you don't start bawling when they say they can't tell that day!

Some people find out really early but I would recomend waiting til atleast 20wks to find out. Finding out before isnt very accurate. I found out at 20weeks but like someone else said some babies dont like showing off. My SIL didnt find out what she was having til she was 33weeks because her baby wouldnt show off
