    We found out with our first that we were having a boy at 16 weeks (against Dr.’s orders at a 3D ultrasound) and my son is amazing!

    ETA: You could clearly tell the sex with just the regular 2D, though.

    I can’t say every time it will be 100%… but usually with a boy-it’s clear as day lol! Everyone I know that has had kids in the past 10-12 years had them 16-22 weeks and were spot on 🙂 Congratulations!

    There is a blood test at 9 weeks that is 95% accurate.

    @crayfish:  Really!?  I didn’t know that.  Will doctors do it?

    i do ultrasounds for a living and it’s never 100% accurate no matter how far along you are.  I will say though that testicles can drop up to 24 weeks so i’d save your receipts.

    I was told at 15 weeks that I was having a boy, and that I did.

    We just found out that we’re having a boy, and it was VERY obvious *ahem*.:)


    ETA: I am 18 weeks today, my anatomy scan was last Friday

    I think the accuracy is somewhere around 85% at 16 weeks, and it continues to improve with each passing week.  Although like everything else, no one will 100% guarantee anything, including the sex of your butterbean.  🙂

    FWIW, I had an elective u/s performed at 16 weeks (I am just now 18 weeks), and I was told at that time I was having a girl.  It was pretty obvious – not a nub in sight!  The following week I had an amnio peformed, and just got the final results back, confirming that butterbean is, in fact, a girl.
