The earliest time we can assess the babys sex is at 12 weeks gestation/pregnancy: We can tell the sex of the baby at the 12 week scan by assessing the direction of the nub. This is something that can be identified on babies at this stage and if it points vertically then it is likely to be a boy.
How can you tell if its a boy or girl at 12 weeks?
All babies have a genital tubercle or nub between their legs that develops between 11-13 weeks. According to this theory, the angle of the nub will indicate whether a baby is a boy or girl. Its said that if the nub is over 30 degrees up from the spine, its a boy. However, if its under that, then its a girl.
How often can you tell gender at 12 weeks?
Blood tests to screen for certain conditions can tell us gender after nine weeks. At 12 weeks, we may be able to use ultrasound to determine gender based on the angle of the genital tubercle.
