  • Around that time they all have a little "nub" at their genitals. This will either become the penis or the clitoris.

  • They can tell sometimes, but don't be surprised if they were wrong!

  • I personally think thats to early to tell. I always had to wait until at least 18 to 20 wks to do ultrasound. My friend I am staying with now is 12 wks and you cannot tell the sex on the untrasound.

  • yes. if you have a good tech and a clear view you can tell what you're having that early, but it's rare that it happens. You should also ask for the sex at your 20 week us and hold off on buying blue till then because it's more likely to be wrong that early on. However it is easier to see a boy then a girl so it's most likely right. Either way good luck!

  • I knew before 16 weeks I was having a boy...The tech said a baby boy will look like a turtle versus a girl won't.
    I never trusted her, lol, I have 3 girls so a boy was just to hard to believe

  • I think they can give you an idea, but at 20 weeks it's probably the best time.

  • I found out at like 16-17 weeks that I was having a boy. It was quite obvious lol

  • It is possible for them to give you an idea. I would not buy anything yet though until I got a repeat ultrasound. 16-20 weeks is the best time to find out.
