  • I think that is too early... not completely sure though

  • WAY too early. All babies look like boys at that gestation. Not only that, but your sonographer probably wouldn't even attempt to guess. The babies have what's called a "nub", and it looks like a little winkie. You can try to determine if it's a boy or girl based on the angle of the nub (google "angle of the dangle" for more info) but it's still a 50/50 guess at best.

  • thats pretty early I would wait until about 20 weeks because you get a more clear picture that will be more accurate. Some dr will tell you around 15 weeks, but there is a higher chance that they will be wrong.

  • It all depends. Alot of times boy parts show up pretty soon, so unless you DEF see that little pee pee sticking up I wouldn't trust it just yet lol

  • nope. not at that point in the gestation period. their genitals are exactly the same up until about 12-13 weeks... so, there isn't any positive way to tell. Sorry :( But you get to meet your new addition!

  • At that stage they all have a little "nub" that will either become the penis or the clitoris.

  • Yeah I think its too early. From what I've been told, like another poster said, all babies look like boys at that stage. I had an ultrasound done at 16 weeks I believe and they UST said he would put money on it that I was having a boy. He said he couldn't say for sure, but he thought he saw a penis in between my son's legs. Turns out, at my 20 week US, I was indeed having a boy!
