I'm exactly the same i'm 12.4 weeks and have no idea how i'm going to manage the wait for my 2nd scan in September. I think you can go private but the adverts i've seen can only tell from 20 weeks - so looking at that time scale we may as well wait rather than paying £95. Its touch but well worth the wait and at least you're further along than me so you wont have to wait as long as me.
I know it doesn't really help but at least you're not alone.
Bye for now Ax

i had to go for an emergency scan a couple of weeks ago (i wa 16 wks at the time) this was private as the hospital were useless and thier idea of an emergency was a week after the mw phoned!!! anyway we went for the scan and the sonographer asked if we wanted to know what it was, apparently the baby was in a good position so he coud tell - we decided not to and are waiting.
so you can tell at 16 wks but like at 20 wks it depends if the baby wants you to know by being in the right position!! we had to pay for the scan - it was 15o quid so quite pricey.
hope this helps
