In brief: Ultrasound

Often it is possible to determine if the fetus is male or female during the second and third trimesters of pregnancy.

In brief: Non-invasive test

Let me add that there are new technologies coming that allow us to isolate fetal cells in the mother's blood.
The fetal cells can then be tested to determine the fetal sex. These test were invented to help with certain sex-linked genetic disorders like hemophilia, where knowing the sex could avoid other invasive tests. I assembled some links about this technique (http://bitly.Com/zjlhau).

In brief: Several

1. 2nd and 3rd trimester ultrasound 2.
Amniocentesis if done, will have that information 3. Wait until baby is born there are a lot of old wive's tales out there suggesting other ways to tell, but they're usually just that, tales and myths.
