  • Not with the accuracy of later u/s, but a well trained, experienced tech can venture a pretty good guess. At 13 weeks the part that will become either the penis or the clitoris does start to take on a different angle depending on which it will become. We had a couple of women on my son's birth board(on another site) have techs tell them at 13wks what they 'thought', and all four of them were correct.

  • I wouldn't even bother trying to find out what the sex is that early. It probably wouldn't be very accurate.

  • they can speculate, but the parts aren't formed enough yet to get a firm answer.

  • They can begin to guess... But it is still to early to be sure. I definitely wouldn't go out and start buying a certain color at 13 weeks.
