  • Chorionic villus sampling at 9 to 12 weeks can tell.
    Amniocentesis at 16 to 20 weeks (or any point later in the pregnancy).
    Ultrasound at 17 to 20 weeks (or any point later in the pregnancy).

  • An ultrasound is more successful at determining the sex if you're 20 or more weeks along. An amnio can give you a DEFINITE answer, but I'm not sure early those can work...and I definitely wouldn't have one done just to determine the sex of your baby!

  • My doctor said that between 18 and 22 weeks is ideal. Before that the girl parts and boy parts look to much a like to really get a good look. We would have found out at 18 weeks but she was being stubborn and decided that was not the day she wanted us to know so we had to go back at 21 weeks and we saw the girl parts clear as day!
