If you want to find out the sex of your baby, you can usually do so during the 20-week mid-pregnancy scan but this depends on the policy of your hospital. Tell the sonographer at the start of the scan that youd like to know your babys sex.
How early can you have a scan to find out gender?
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.
Is 12-week scan from date of last period?
Why would I have a dating scan? A dating scan might be recommended before 12 weeks to confirm your due date if you are unsure of your last menstrual period or your date of conception. The scan is optional and not everyone will have it. You can discuss whether you want or need a dating scan with your doctor or midwife.
