Week 17: Boy or girl
There are lots of old wives' tales on predicting the sex of your baby, so you can try and guess for your self. But if you actually want to know then your baby’s sex can be determined after about 16 to 17 weeks and you can find out at the 20 week scan. You and your partner may be excited to find out what sex your baby is, or you may want to wait until the birth. Either way it’s good to bear in mind that doctors can sometimes get it wrong.
