Can you tell if it is a boy at 12 1/2 weeks?

I am having an ultrasound tomorrow to measure the baby's neck (downn syndrome). And I have heard if it was a boy you could tell early on.

  • No. Sex organs are not fully developed until 16 weeks.

  • My niece found out that she was having a boy when she was 13 weeks, but it depends on the ultrasound person, if she is careful you might be able to find out, but then again, it might be too early, good luck

  • Anon is wrong genitals are fully formed at eight weeks. **IF** baby is willing to give you a shot between the legs, you ***MIGHT*** be able to tell. But I would not fully trust it that soon. I'd wait until baby is bigger. In other words you can, but don't count on it.

  • The sex organs don't develop until about week 20 - 21. Sorry!!
