How many weeks were you when you had the "big" u/s to determine the gender of your Baby? My regular appointments would be at 13 weeks (next week) 17 weeks and 21 weeks. I'm trying to figure out my chances of having my midwife schedule it at the 17 week appointment versus the 21 week appointment. I'm sure hoping it's at 17 weeks.
If I recall for Naden correctly, mine was at 20 weeks but if you have an u/s at 17weeks (even if it's not the big u/s where they are measuring organ sizes and that stuff) your midwife could still probably tell you the sex early
Mine was 21 weeks....sorry, I know not what you want to hear. However, they gave me their best guess at 13 weeks too, but they were wrong. However, by 17 weeks, if she gives her best guess, it should be pretty accurate. You could ask her to check both times?

Thanks for the info ladies -- I can wait. I just thought knowing the gender would help DH and I start talking about baby names. We are SO bad at making decisions, and I know this one is going to be a tough one. We have our last vacation planned -- we are going to Cancun for a week. It is a week of just RELAXATION -- I can't wait. That vacation is scheduled right over the 20w mark. I thought we could use that downtime to really do some talking about names (and other decisions we still have to make -- child care, house rearranging, etc.) I'll just talk with my midwife next week and get a plan in place. I'm getting so excited!!! I can't believe I'm going to be 12 weeks on Thursday.
They did my big u/s at 20 weeks but at the scan I had at right around 14w they were pretty sure he was a boy And they were right.
