    hi i found out at wk 15 just yesterday actually so I'm guessing from wk 15 onwards.. but my doctor did say it really depends if the little one is co-operative or not..

    Hi

    If the baby is being uncooperative (!) ie- lying in a funny position that the doctor cannot see, then I understand that the only 100% certain way to tell the sex is by having an amnio test or similar. Not sure if they will do that now that you are 22 weeks and also, unsure whether a doctor will perform an amnio just because you want to know the sex (normally used to tell Downs syndrome and other chromosomal abnormalities).

    If you can hold off, I am sure that your doctor will be able to tell you the sex once the baby is bigger. We went to Dr Lam for our 12 week scan and he told us with 90% certainty (so he said) what the sex was.

    PS I have been told by several OBS that Dr Lam (from HK Diagnostic Specialists) has some of the best scanning equipment in HK so you could consider having your next scan with him instead of your own private Dr

    We were about 22 weeks when we had a 3D scan (for other medical reasons) with Dr Lam and he was able to definitively tells us we were having a daughter. He kindly pointed out all her girly bits just so we were sure - my husband didn't know where to look - it was hilarious. Anyway, the reason we couldn't be sure in previous scans was that she was moving about too much, and it is always a little more tricky to be sure it's a girl and not just a boy with a smaller penis.
    I'd definitely suggest being patient and asking the technicians in the next scan. You've still got a while before he or she comes out to buy all your pink or blue stuff if that's your inclination.

    Cesh - that is so funny! Dr Lam did the same for our first baby - blew it up on the big screen and proudly declared "there's the penis"!!
