Can I know the sex of my baby during the 2nd trimester of pregnancy?

During the 2nd trimester of pregnancy, your doctor may be able to use an ultrasound to find out your baby's sex! This can be a very exciting thing, but some couples may choose to wait until birth to find out the sex of the baby. Before your next appointment, talk with your partner about the benefits of finding out now and the benefits of waiting. That way, you'll be able to let your doctor know your decision right away when it's time for the next ultrasound.
