    1st Trimester Screening U/S of Twins

    Hey all!

    Just wanted to reach out to get the opinions of those who have been through this before - I am currently 13 weeks 2 days prego with twins conceived via IVF.

    This friday (I will be 13 weeks 5 days prego) I am having my first trimester screening u/s on the bambinos and I am beyond excited not only to see them again but to make sure all is growing and forming perfectly

    Question - at almost 14 weeks is it possible to find out the gender of twins? I have read mixed reviews on the issue - some people have found out - specifically if they are having a boy(s) but too early to tell for girls?

    Any and all info is greatly appreciated!!!

    Best wishes to all on a healthy pregnancy!

    Hey Mel! One of my best friends got a sex guess at 12 weeks...lucky! My OB-GYN wouldn't give me a guess until 20 weeks!!! I will say that around 16 weeks or so, he told me "there is definitely a girl in there". Hope that helps!

    Good luck!!!!

    I havE heard that a lot of " boys" Are actually girls if looked a too early-- but if they say girl it is more likely to be accurate??
    I was told girl at 16 weeks and it was right- wouldn't try before then- just too scared it might be wrong either way!
