Best wishes for pregnancy! ...Read more
Depends: Features of gender are fully developed by 12 weeks but few are ever confident predicting sex by ultrasound before 18-20 weeks.The equipment used and skill of the examiner are variables.Male parts may or may not be displayed during the exam, so at best it is a learned guess.
