  • I always thought that they couldn't tell before 16 weeks minimum, and most techs wouldn't speculate before 18 to 20 weeks.

  • Looks like a girl but I could be wrong I'll wait a few more weeks

  • Awww you have two boys...I am sure praying for your little hamburger

    I think this is very very early...but if I had to put my money on it then I would say the tech said...dont go run out and buy pink....go back for a recheck :)

    CONGRATS AND GOOD LUCK!!!!! I am pregnant with my 3rd...a girl :)

  • well where i went and had this done at they said on the web site that they could determine the sex at 15 weeks but when i got there she said its better at 16 weeks....she should of put a ? behind what she wrote....but like i said both my boys you could tell were boys and i had my second boy scan at 17 weeks but iu guess i went in too early this time

  • lol well no a girl cant change into a boy BUT they say the WORST week to tell gender is 14th....during weeks 11-14 all babies have what appears to be a penis aka tubericle that either becomes clitoris or penis after 14 wks BUT for some fetuses during the 14th week a penis or clitoris could be very misleading and not fully developed, most frequently boys are mistaken for girls..... even the 15th week is tricky. However they say by week 16 the genitals are fully formed and close too 100% accurate! I would say its about 60/40 right more then likely a girl but really hard to say!
