How far along to do you have to be in your area to get it done? I just looked for around us and you have to be 20 weeks .... seems so far away!

the level 2 scan is usually done for me around 18-20 weeks, but they don't do the 3D part of it, not unless you are super high risk at this practice.

Now I have done that fun pay out of pocket 3D/4D scan with #6 cuz I wanted to be sure she was girl. LOL

We will not find out the sex of this baby though.

My OB does 3D at my last scan which is about 20 weeks I guess. It is neat, but it does suck to have to wait so long.

I get a scan at 20 weeks and that will the be the gender scan. Not sure if they will do a 3D though. I did one out of pocket with DD and I'm not sure I will do that for this one.

Typically at 20 weeks.

My OB's office offers a gender scan at 16 weeks for $50 so we are doing that.

I planned on going to a place that does 3D/4D ultrasounds somewhere between 16 and 18 weeks...Time is flying though - it will be here before you know it!

Ugh so the 3D place I looked at is a paid place - I wasn't sure when we would find out with my doctor? But like I said - you have to wait till 20 weeks! Torture!!! You're so lucky you can get it done sooner!

I have no idea yet, but I'll be sure to ask when I get to the doc next Thursday.

My friend said that at her 12 week ultrasound the tech said they had a good feeling her baby was going to be a girl but to not take it at 100% - she was able to find out a few weeks after that definitively! I'm going to try and get one at 16 weeks if there is an inexpensive out of pocket way to do so. Since we have a high deductible plan it really doesn't matter what I do - I pay for whatever care I want, basically.

You *can* find out around 16w, but I'll probably get it done at 18w.

My OB does the anatomy scan around 20-22 weeks. I was 21 weeks when I had mine with my doctor. I found out my daughter's sex at 16 weeks because I paid for an elective ultrasound.

With this baby I already have my 3D elective ultrasound to find out the sex on May 6th. Once again my OB will have me come in around 20-22 weeks for the anatomy scan.

The anatomy scan at my ob is done between 20 and 24 weeks. However, the fun 3D ultrasound place by my house that we used at 32 weeks with my first says they can tell the sex at 14wks!!! Soooo tempting cuz I wasn't even showing til 17 weeks with my first and I would love to be able to announce the sex at the same time that I announce the pregnancy!!
