Boy or girl? The difficulties of early gender prediction

The ultrasound identification of fetal gender at the gestational age of 11–12 weeks

Kudos to people who can wait until the birth to find out if they are having a boy or girl. The feminist in me feels guilty about this, but I never wanted to wait that long. Pretty much the second I learned I was pregnant, I started trying to figure out if it was a boy or or girl. Genetic testing through CVS remains the most accurate way to determine fetal sex in the first trimester.

Week 11 Ultrasound: What It Would Look Like

When it comes to predicting the gender of an unborn baby, many old wives tales emerge. According to some, if you carry your baby bump low that means you're having a baby boy, or if you happen to be craving sweets, you're apparently expecting a baby girl. The nub theory claims to be a lot more accurate than some of those old wives tales — and says you can even tell the sex of your baby just by looking at your 12 week ultrasound picture. At weeks, all babies are believed to have a 'nub' between their legs called the genital tubercle, and according to the Nub Theory, the angle indicates the baby's sex. In the above picture, the nub theory isn't pointing up more than 30 degrees from the spine, so believers in this theory would say the scan showed a little girl.
So you are around 11 weeks pregnant, and it's time for your ultrasound, what can you expect? This fetal ultrasound is known at the dating scan, as they should be able to predict your due date from what they observe! This is also your first time 'seeing' your baby, and hearing baby's heartbeat, it is an amazing experience and can be a little emotional so don't forget the tissues. This scan should ideally happen in the first trimester the first 12 weeks.
