Is it a Boy or a Girl?

If you're at least 12 weeks pregnant, your doctor can likely tell you the sex of your baby. That is, if you really want to know.

Techniques to find out if it's a boy or a girl


  • 70% right in your 11th week
  • 99% right by your 12th week
  • Most often right by your 13th week

Even after week 13, don't count on ultrasounds to be foolproof. Babies don't always sit still when they're having their picture taken.


  • Most often tells you correctly if it's a boy or a girl
  • Can sometimes cause miscarriage
  • Is used for genetic testing; not used just to tell the sex of a baby
