Finally, we have two cases at 18 weeks. Note: For a listing of eleven such early survivors, see the 1989 edition of Abortion Questions and Answers (Willke. Hayes Pub. Co. pp. 60, 61).

A number of babies have been born alive after only 18 weeks of pregnancy, research has revealed. Dozens more have survived terminations even though they were younger than 24 weeks -- the upper age limit for abortions.

The study, published in the British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, revealed that some of the babies who initially survived terminations were only in the 18th week of pregnancy and more than half were under 22 weeks.

Some were able to move around, breathe normally and even cry out. Many lived for more than an hour, and one survived for four and a-half hours.

At this time a baby born at 18 weeks is still to premature to survive.

A baby can be born at 18 weeks. However, he/she would not live. The earliest a baby could survive outside the womb is 21 weeks, and this is very, very rare.

both are.. but at 34 weeks the baby is bigger and at 18 weeks the baby is moving and turning inside your stomach and its beautiful to be able to see it and you can also see what you are having at 18 weeks if the baby legs aren't close together...congrat and best of luck

No. Usually you can tell the gender at 18 to 20 weeks.

You are 24 weeks already and experiencing baby movements already at 18 to 20 weeks.

18 to 20 weeks, but some have said that they found out the sex around 16 weeks, it depends on how the baby is positioned to get a good view.

The baby is 15cm long. See the related link for a picture

No. Look at what your baby looks like at 10 weeks!:http://3dpregnancy.parentsconnect.com/calendar/10-weeks-pregnant.html Usually between 15-18 weeks you will find out the gender of your baby. Actually, yes you can: http://www.intelligender.com/

It starts at 18 weeks into the pregnancy, or 16 weeks after conception.

From 14-18 weeks into the pregnancy.

YES because quickening is felt at 18 to 20 weeks.

i'm 12 weeks into my second pregnancy and starting to feel flutters in my stomach. I recognize this as fetal movements. With my first pregnancy, i only realized the baby was moving at 16 weeks.

User Avatar

With a sonogram: At 24 weeks almost always, at 18 weeks, only if you're lucky. With amniocentesis at about 12 weeks (but higher risk).

User Avatar

132-134 days which is about 18 weeks

User Avatar

The most accurate time is between 18-22 weeks. Anything before 18 weeks is more of a guess, and anything after 22 weeks the baby might be too big to see between the knees.

Your baby is approximately 18 inches and 5 1/2 pounds. View : http://3dpregnancy.parentsconnect.com/calendar/35-weeks-pregnant.html for more information.

they might be able to tell what the baby is but it would be best to wait till 18 weeks would be good time it was easy to find out my babys gender im 18 weeks and im haveing a girl good luck

User Avatar

You have to wait until 18 weeks so just over 4 months, anytime before that and the baby's genitalia looks similar. At any point before the 18 weeks the doctor can't tell what gender it is. After the 18 weeks the baby has developed enough that is it safe for the doctor to do an ultra sound and see what gender the baby is. But it is always good to ask how clearly your doctor can tell between the babies genitalia.
