  • yes they can. 8 weeks is a no go. after 11-12 weeks t he genitals start to change. good luck, and hopefully the baby isnt shy.

  • We were able to tell at 16 weeks that we were having a boy but it all depends on if the baby stays still long enough to tell.

  • I found out at 17 weeks with my son. Dont wait too long or the baby will be scrunched up and wont show anything.

  • It depends on the positioning of the baby. When we went at 18 weeks they told us 90% chance a girl. At 23 weeks, it was definitely a boy!! He just wasn't moving too much the first time and they just took their best guess, which was obviously wrong!

  • Yes, they usually don't "confirm" until 20 weeks though. I found out I was having a boy at 12w3d.

  • Yes they can. You just have to hope that the baby will sit right. Anytome before that tho the babies organs are not sepratable. THey look exactly the same from boy and girl until about 11 weeks, Good Luck!
