I found out at 19 1/2 weeks. 15 weeks would be too early. It'll come soon enough.

If the baby was in a good position, the sonographer would probably be able to tell at about 16 weeks.. But it would be more accurate later on, around 20 weeks. Don't worry.. You'll find out soon =)

The average u/s for determining the sex are scheduled between 18-20 weeks.However, even at this time nothing is guaranteed hopefully your baby will be active and move enough to show its goodies! I found out at 21 weeks because the waiting list was long. Your almost there hang in there.

yeah I couldnt find out either because the baby was so awkward and I wanted to do a 3d scan but theyre so expensive and I opted too late in the pregnancy anyway. As long as the baby is healthy it doesnt bother me

I didn't find out at my 20 week scan either. My baby had his legs crossed and was too active to even take accurate measurements. Lucky for me though, the doctor scheduled me for another one in 2 weeks (week 23) to get different measurements b/c my baby was too active the first time :)
