How many weeks when you found out the sexes?

I'm sooooo impatient! I've just read this article

which seems to suggest that you may be able to find out the gender of your babies at your 12 week scan but I'm sure when I asked at the hospital they said around 16 weeks via private scan or at 20 weeks at your regular scan. I'd be really interested to hear your experiences and particularly if anyone has asked this question at their 12 week scan. Mine is on 2nd July and fingers crossed I'll be 13+2.

RE: How many weeks when you found out the sexes?

I think most places are reluctant to say either way as the genitals are quite under developed and can be difficult to tell apart at such a young age.
Saying that ... I had a private (reasurrance) scan at 13+5 and asked the scanner if she had an idea of the sexes. She said it was no-where near guaranteed, and was really hard to tell, but she thought that they were a girl and a boy.

I'm not sure how obliging they would be at a 12 week routing scan on the NHS though

i had a scan at 20 weeks and the hospital were very undecided but it might be a girl. at 28 weeks i had a 3d scan and had a sexing scan too to be sure and the private scan is so clear that I could tell it was a girl before she told me! i think it is about £50 for a private sexing scan and the lady who did mine says she can do them from 16 weeks.

I found out the sex at my 20 week scan. Well one anyway as twin1 was hiding twin 2's bits so I found out the other twin was a girl the week after even tho the Consultant thought it was two girls anyway.

I had a 12 week scan then a nuchal scan done at the RVI at 14 weeks. I asked then about the sex of the twins but she said it was too early to tell. I had a private 3d scan done at 23 weeks but already knew the sexes then.

They couldn't see at my 20 week scan, so I had a private 4d scan at 24 weeks. Loved it.

Lexie - mine was at the RVI too. £200 I paid.
