  • I've never heard that. I believe that it is true for everyone that you can't find out the babys sex until after a certain week. which I think is around 20 or so weeks. sometimes a little earlier. there is a certain week of gestation that the genitals develop and/or ascend.

  • As far as I know, they can't determine the sex til 17 weeks at the earliest, the parts are developed enough to tell for sure before then.

  • There is no way to be able to find out the sex of the baby sooner. It just depends on how quickly your baby developes. I do know that some people are able to find out at 13 or 14 wks but i wasnt able to find out till i was 20 wks or so.

  • I've never heard of that. The earliest you can really find out I believe is 16 weeks but the baby has to be really devloped. Chances are if it looks like a girl they'll have you come back at 20 weeks to verify.
