Can you tell the sex in a 12 week scan? Lock Rss

Hi ladies,
I have the films for my 12 week scan and they have taken a few shots from below looking up between the legs...I couldn't see anything there except what she told me was the cord...does this mean its a girl because surely I would have seen a tiny little doodle if it was a boy and I really do have this gut feeling it's a girl but the odds aren't going in my favour!! I have booked in for my 19 week scan at the end of January but I'm curious to know if they can see the genitals in the 12wk scan..Can anyone help??

I don't really know if they can say with high accuracy the sex at a 12 week scan. I had mine last thursday and the baby is only 5.9cm long so can you imagine the size the 'doodle' must be? I think with the 19 week scan they can tell you the gender with much more certainty. Good luck!


I don't think they can really tell the sex at the 12 week scan. Especially when they can't even tell correctly at the 20 week scans some of the time. I was told that even at the 20 week scan the baby still has to be in a good position to be able to tell and they never ask if you want to know the sex at the 12 week.

Anyway hope all goes well smile
