can u determine sex at 10 weeks?


is 10 weeks to early to tell the sex of the baby? Take a look at my scan pic in my sig, I don't see any boy like parts there on the right...are the genitals just not out yet at that point? What do you think?

I think it's too early to tell - but not an expert - maybe an expert eye would tell

My ultrasound technician said it's best to wait until you are close to 20 weeks so things are developed down there in baby

The baby's sex doesn't start growing externally until 10 weeks, but they would be far too small to tell by looking at an ultrasound. If a baby were to be viewed externally at 13 weeks, the sex would be visible. Some techs can tell from the ultrasound at 14 weeks, but even then there is a large margin of error as the swelled labia can be mistaken for a boy's scrotum. So it's a bit too early to tell on your scan. Sorry, you'll have to wait a few more weeks.

I am due 23rd january 2011, very newly pregnant, I know we can pay for sex scans here. My husband deploys to Afghan in sept so do you think we would be able to get a sex scan before this where he could find out and be there with me?

10 weeks is too early but ive read about people finding out at 12 weeks (with an expert eye of course..)
the problem is that even at 12 weeks a boy looks like a girl and vice versa... i watched this (cos i was going to get a 3d scan earlier than 16 weeks cos im impatient lol) its a short film on how girls and boys seperate... its gross to watch but pretty amazing... xx
