Default Is 20 weeks too late?

OK, I just scheduled my US for 20 weeks, but do you think that will be more difficult to determine the baby's sex, b/c it will be bigger? I see some of us are doing it at 16-18 weeks. Should I change it to earlier?

With both of my kids so far, my u/s was right at 20 weeks. It can often be hard to tell the sex as early as 16 weeks, and there should actually be a better chance of seeing at 20!

Good luck! I hope baby cooperates!

i'm having mine at 22 weeks and the Dr said we should be able to tell just fine. I had one at 16 weeks and they couldn't tell

Mine is just at 18 weeks because that is when they normally do it up here, I would say they would have a better chance of being able to tell at 20 weeks!

I think 20 is just fine - that's when I had it done with Cora and when it will be done this time around.
