Does anyone else plan on going to a ultrasound center to find out the gender earlier than your doc's anatomy scan? We plan on going at 15 weeks. There is a place by us that guarantees finding the gender so if the baby is hiding we can keep going back for free.

I don't think we have any place like that around here. But I will probably just have to stick with ultrasounds that are covered by insurance. These babies are already going to be emptying my pocket book!!!

we have lots of places around us! It's $50 for a 2D ultrasound (gender) then we will probably go back later on (24 weeks+) to do a 4D ultrasound. Those are $99. I think it's pretty darn cheap compared to what doctor's offices charge! YEESH! I've fully accepted that we will just bleed money for the next 20 odd years

ajcbaby...that's not so bad. Maybe I should do some checking. I was thinking that it would be an astronomical price since it's purely elective.

In my area you can get an elective 2d scan for $75 at an ultrasound boutique and a 3d/4d before 20w for $140 with a cd and a book of pictures

We might do the genetic blood test instead of the quad screen which will give us the gender definitively.

I need to see if insurance will be covering it

Elleon17, I am planning on getting the genetic test too. My docs office said that you get the results back in 10 days! I think you can do it as early as 10 weeks! My insurance doesn't take effect until June 1, so I'll have to wait until at least then. They quoted me a price of roughly $1500 to self pay. Yikes! I think I'll wait the couple of weeks- even though I know they will drag on forever!

Nah. If we don't find out early, we'll just wait.

We're not sure if we're finding out the gender, so no special ultrasounds for sure

My anatomy scan is at 18 weeks, so I don't have to wait quite as long as others. With my third and fourth babies though I had a random ultrasound between 16-17 weeks where we found out the gender. Hoping that happens again! lol

I'll be doing the blood test next week actually. My blood draw is Wednesday at 10 weeks and she said we should have results in about a week. I probably will pay for an elective 3D ultrasound just because DH wants one.

I am team green too! Although I would love to see baby in 3D!

How do you even find a place that does them?

My dr office does it at 17weeks for $50 but there is a lady a town over that does it at 15weeks for same price and on weekends so since dh can't go during the week I'm going to do it through her

I'm tempted! I went private with DS2 and it was a really special moment. I'll see how long I can resist for with this little one
