Is it just a gender scan or your anomoly scan as well? They can tell the gender from about 16 weeks, but certain other things can't be detected until after 20 weeks, such as the heart chambers and things like cleft palate.
I had my anomally scan at 19 weeks and they could tell the sex then. I was told before that there might be issues with spotting certain problems that are required to do the full scan but I would have to rebook if there was a problem. Thankfully all was fine and I didn't need to go back. So be prepared if it is an anomolly scan that you may have to rebook if they can't see all they need too.
Yes, I had mine at 18+6 with my third pregnancy and they said little boy - and it was! As others have said here, if the sonographer is good and the baby is in the right position then they will should able to tell. Good luck! Hope you find out and can enjoy knowing while you're on holiday
I had mine at 19 weeks due to Christmas, I was worried they would not be able to see everything they needed to but my consultant said that's why they are encouraging people to call it the anomally scan as it can be anything from 18 to 21 weeks so it wiil be fine. Enjoy it as the changes from the dating scan are magic
I was told at 12 weeks it was 95% sure it's a boy (looks very male I was told) and then at 19+3 that it's a girl, 100% sure. I'm taking it that it;s a girl but wondering if it is possible that it could be a boy.....?
Told at 15 and a half weeks with ds4. He was pulling it last week at my 20 week scan - so definitely boy behaviour! Also with ds2 I could see his willy at 13 weeks- sonographer said too early to say and just probs the cord but was defo a willy (I'm not willy obsessed BTW-just have lots of baby boys so been through a fair few scans).
