I'm 17 weeks pregnant, can the ob tell me the sex of my baby with a sonogram?

Before 18 weeks: The boy and girl genitalia may be similar in a regular ultrasound. After 18 weeks it becomes more clear. 3d ultrasound are more accurate but less available. Do not rely 100% on a us done that early. Wait after 21 weeks. Good luck in your pregnancy.

Possible: It is possible, but not definite. You need to ask your ob/gyn to evaluate the ultrasound readings.
