I asked the sex of my baby on my 12 week scan they told me 80% chance it is a girl. Then on my 19 week scan i was told that they were 99% sure that it is a girl. I haven't had the baby yet to tell you that for sure it is a girl. But from the ultrasound video i can see it is a girl so i think they can tell sometimes but they can see more clearer on your 19 week scan.

They can tell but it's not always accurate. I was told at 12 weeks with Kane they were 99% sure he was a girl! Re-checked at 18 week and he had mysteriously grown a penis!
As my doc said this time round, if your are told it's a boy at 12 weeks it's more likely a boy, whereas with a girl it can be sometimes confused because the genitals are swollen.
