So after 3 miscarriages, this time I've reached the magical 2nd trimester, and had a great NT scan on Monday. My little one is looking perfect and I can finally start to really believe this is happening
I'm considering doing a 16 week 3D gender scan. The site I'm looking at says if they can't determine gender, they get you back another day for free, to try again. I never found out until birth with my 3 older kids, but this time all of us are desperate to know what this baby is
The earlier the better
Just wondering what other people's experiences are with these early gender scans?

They couldn't confirm but thought boy at 16 weeks, even I thought it looked like a boy.
19 week scan it was definitely a girl

Hmmm 2 examples of them getting it wrong already!
Thanks for replying
So if I do this, I should tell my kids we *think* it's a xxx, but we'll have another look in a few more weeks after that!

Why not just wait until the 20 week morph scan? That scan is really comprehensive and takes up to 45 minutes or so to do.
I didn't tell my kids the sex of our last baby, despite us knowing. They got to discover it for themselves at the birth.

Well of course that's an option, but I was just curious about anyone that had done this earlier.

I found out at 15 weeks when I had an appointment with my OB - so not a gender specific scan so to speak. There was no mistaking that I am having a little he.

I had it done at at 13 weeks and again at 16. Both times they were 99.99% sure of a girl. 20 week scan said girl, 32 week scan confirmed once again it was a girl. I gave birth to a girl.

I waited until my 20 week morph scan and it was definitely a she...

At 16w I participated in a group where students can practice doing ultrasounds (including 3D). I was there for about an hour and had 5 students plus their supervisor say that they were pretty sure I was having a boy. 3 weeks later the 19w morphology scan showed that without a doubt I was having a girl, and yep- she was a girl.

I did one at 17 weeks for first baby and 15 weeks for my second baby. Both were 100% correct. They have on their website I think 99% accuracy. They were done in Adelaide and Sydney.
There was no doubt when she showed us on the screen what we were having.

Thanks everyone. Sounds like it's a lot more accurate for boys! We're going to do the scan anyway. I won't take it as a definite

I had a 16 week gender scan done with my first and they were 100% right - it was a girl, which was confirmed again at the 20 week scan. Booked in for another 16 week gender scan in two weeks time - too impatient to wait!

I had a scan at 15 weeks. The scan was for medical reasons however I asked them if they could tell the gender also. The scan showed up clearly as a boy both in 3D and 2D. I could clearly see it was a boy in the 3D shots. My recent 19 week scan also confirmed a boy
Posted 27 December 2012 - 11:09 PM
I had an informal scan at 16 weeks. They said boy (you can easily tell with my scan pic), and yep, he is a he!
Posted 28 December 2012 - 09:13 AM
Our 15w gender scan was a definite boy - I kept asking "are you sure?" and then the 20w scan confirmed it, I'll get them to check it again later too
Posted 28 December 2012 - 09:22 AM
I had scans at 14.5 weeks and 15.5 weeks (twins).
At the 14.5 week scan, they were sure one was a bpy. By the 15.5 week scan, they were sure both were boys - and they were.
Posted 28 December 2012 - 08:37 PM
I had one done at 17 weeks and she checked about 10 times throughout the period of the scan and said she was 97% sure.
At our 12 week scan, the Sonographer suggested the same.
Looking forward to my 20 week scan to confirm

I had a 3d gender scan at 14 weeks with ds1 and was told a boy, was most definitely a he. I only had the scan as my grandfather was in hospital dyeing and i wanted to tell him what we were having.
I waited until the 20 week scan with ds2.

I had a gender scan with baby # 3 as i really wanted to know as i have two daughters
We got told after about 5 minutes of checking we was having another girl...
So took that as gospel and started to get ready for another girl...
20 weeks she is a HE ... Over the moon but wasn't impressed after the $150 i spent. I emailed the company voicing how it made me feel and they offered another scan , and confirmed boy as well.

i had a gender scan at 16 weeks and found out i was having a boy, this was confirmed at the 20 week scan.
Posted 28 December 2012 - 10:03 PM
Yep I had a 3D gender scan at 15weeks. They said it was a girl (which co-incided with what they sonagrapher at 12wk scan predicted).
Was really glad we got it done as DD had her legs crossed throughout the whole 20wk scan and we wouldnt have been able to find out then.
Posted 28 December 2012 - 10:29 PM
I had a scan at 12 weeks and 2 GPs confirmed the potty shot was definitely a girl... and she was!
For others its a completely different story but she was so obviously a she from early on.
Posted 08 February 2013 - 12:17 PM
Thought I'd update
I went ahead with the gender scan at 16 weeks and was told very confidently that we had a boy
I had said in this thread I wouldn't take that as gospel, but I have to say I did. I've bonded with him as a boy over the last 3 weeks and was then worried it would be wrong!
Had my morph scan this morning, different place, different sonographer, but she's also absolutely confident he's a he
Pointed out the very clear scrotum and penis
I'm really happy. He's my 4th boy (no girls) but I can honestly say I feel no disappointment at all. Probably helps that he's been 6 years "in the making".
Roll on July. We can't wait to meet him!
Posted 08 February 2013 - 03:39 PM
As you know Rolex, I had a 16 week gender scan and they said it was a girl, thus morning I had my morph scan and they said girl as well.
I'm still in disbelief and wont believe it until she's born! Lol
Congrats on your boy again
