What is the name of the blood test to determine a baby's gender as early as 5 weeks?

Intelligender.

Conception
Apparently the Intelligender Gender Prediction Test can tell a baby's gender as early as 8 weeks after conception. There are other kits, and medical tests like chorionic villus sampling that can do it in about the same time but the risks to the fetus may be greater.

Dr. Gurmukh Singh answered:

How many weeks is a baby's gender established?

At conception

Baby
A baby's gender is determined at the time of conception. Depending on the tests done fetal sex can be determined at various times. In normal pregnancy fetal sex can be determined by testing mother;s blood at 7 weeks. In case of in-vitro fertilization, it could be determined before the embryo is implanted.

Dr. Randy S. Baker answered:

Is man sperms totally responsible for the baby's Gender ?

Yes

Conception
All Eggs contain only X Chromosomes. About half the sperms have X chromosomes & half have a Y Chromsome instead. If the X chromosome fertilizes the egg the baby becomes a girl & if sperm has a Y chromosome the baby becomes a boy. The eggs can not possibly influence gender (I guess they could if they had a choice whether to be fertilized by a X or Y sperm, but there is no evidence this can happen).

I'm 15 weeks pregnant I will be 15 weeks and 3 days my next appointment would I be able to find out the baby's gender?

Sonogram

Pregnancy
It is possible to find out the gender at that gestational age. You will have to find out if you are scheduled for a sonogram that day. 18 to 22 weeks is a better time to look at the fetal anatomy though.
