You can find out the sex of your baby during a scan that is performed to check that your baby is healthy.

The earliest time we can assess the baby’s 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. If it points horizontally then it is likely to be a girl.
We can be 95% accurate at this early stage of pregnancy.
