Confusing question: Are you 16 weeks pregnant ? If so an ultrasound may be able to tell gender in the hands of an experienced technician but the test may be more reliable after 20 wks.
Dr. Luis Eguiguren

Ultrasound: Most of the time, by 16 to 20 weeks gestation, it is possible to tell the baby's gender. It really depends on the baby's position and of being able to see the penis and the scrotum in boys or the labia in girls.
