Hopefully if LO cooperates, about when will you find out the gender?

My OB does it at 18 weeks so that puts me around the week of December 3. That really doesn't seem that far away considering I will have my second appt November 6, then the next appointment after that will be the gender reveal!!

Whenever they decide is a good time to do it. Hopefully it's a little early. That would be cool. But we do plan on finding out as soon as possible. It will make getting the nursery and fine-tuning the registry a lot easier.

Definitely ASAP! This is my first so I am not sure when it's done at my OB office, but I would love to know as soon as I can and I am thinking PINK!

I'll be 20 weeks exactly on Christmas, so I'm unsure if they'll want it done at 19 weeks or 21. So I'm looking at probably mid-late Dec.

We are opting to do a gender scan at 15 weeks and will be paying out of pocket. (That will be the week of Thanksgiving). My Dr. doesn't do the anatomy scan until 18-20 weeks, and 18 weeks for me is a few days before Christmas, and then there is New Years, everyone on vacation...I know that I won't be able to schedule it until after the holidays. And there is no way I am waiting that long!

We will pay for a gender scan at 17 weeks which is roughly the first week in December. Anatomy u/s at my OB is due at 20 weeks which puts us as Christmas day so I'm guessing the scheduling for that will be weird.

I want to do an elective gender scan at 16 weeks and bring the kiddos. (Omgsh....that's in 4 1/2 weeks!) DH is not convinced. He is still kinda blah when it comes to anything baby. It is only like 50 bucks and well worth it imo. The doctor's office will be sometime between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Ifwe don't do the elective, I would love to do a Christmas morning reveal but idk if I can wait that long!

I will have an anatomy scan at the hospital in my 20th week...at least that is how it was last time. I'm actually happy that I'm high risk because if you aren't in Germany you pay out of pocket for an actual anatomy scan...instead they just measure the head, stomach and leg and that's pretty much all they look at. I do have u/s at every appt. instead of using the doppler (so every 2 weeks) but last time doc didn't even want to make a guess at 17 weeks because it was "too early"...finally she said she thought it was a girl but not to hold her to that. So I'm thinking we won't know for sure till week 20...which should be in mid/late dec.

I don't know. I'll be 11 weeks at my next appointment. Then 15 at the one after that. They may put me in for 18 weeks. That's when I found out last time.

My Dr. won't let me do it before 20 weeks. Said pictures of baby are more important and those are best at 20-21 weeks. So early Jan for me.

Hopefully as soon as we can. Im assuming not for at least another month at least though, I bet it will be around 20+ weeks.

At 12.5 weeks which for me is Oct 29th!! Woo hoo!! My doctor is a perinatologist who will do my ultrasounds, and he is ALWAYS right at 12 weeks. Nailed it with my first and that was from looking at the photo because he wasn't there on the day of my appt so I had him peek at the picture. All the girls I know go to him for early gender reveal, so hopefully he is confidant about this one :-)

December 2nd. I just scheduled my elective scan and photo session earlier today. We are going to have the tech put the gender in an envelope and I am taking that to my photog who is going to meet us later with a box of pink or blue balloons and capture our faces as we find out when we open the box. I am so excited! We could have the scan sooner but my mom wants to be there (she lives out of town) so I had to work with her schedule. I will be just over 17 weeks.

I'm going to do an elective with this one. I waited to 20 weeks with my son but this time my MiL will be in town just before thanksgiving so I thought it would be fun to bring her along. She will be in town the 16-24 of November so it'll be in that time frame and I'll be 15-16 weeks
