    to early hun. They'll let you know on you 20 week scan.

    (but ive heard they can usually tell the sex by 15-16 weeks) (but you dont get a scan then unless you go private)

    alos may depend on your hospital as some places don't tell u the sex. My hospital doesn't so find out at your 12 week scan if they will tell u the sex at your 20 week scan

    Failing that u could always go for a private one.

    My hospital has a notice up saying do not ask the sex of your baby unless you are over 20 weeks as can not be sure before then and that they will not wait for the baby to move to see the sex if they cant see. in that case you need a privite one. lets us know when you do find out

    i *hav heard of* people bein told the sex at 12-week scans *if its a boy* for obvious reasons, but most places wont at that stage and some wont even tell u at 20 weeks for legal reasons (people hav sued when its been wrong! :roll: )

    not at the 12 week. they offered to tell us at the 20 week but we declined as wanted a surprise. it's a good excuse to book a 4d scan if they don't tell you though :D
