A baby's sex can be determined as early as week 12. However, it is not as accurate until weeks 18-20 at your anatomy scan.
At 12 weeks, male and female fetuses have a bump called a genital tubercle. The bump represents the developing genitalia. During this stage of development, the genital tubercle begins to point either toward the head, which means boy, or toward the feet, which means girl.
As much as we hope your little one will cooperate, they may have other plans. Crossed legs, the presence of the umbilical cord between the legs, or other less-than-ideal fetal positions can prevent the sonographer from getting a good look.
