Frequently Asked Questions about Gender Scan
The earliest time we can assess the baby’s sex is at 14 weeks gestation/pregnancy: We can tell the sex of the baby at the 14 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.
It is important to state from the off that unfortunately, there is always a chance an early gender scan at 13 weeks could be wrong. After all, this is the very first week in pregnancy that your baby’s genitals are viewable on ultrasound and whilst the baby is still so small, there is every chance it could be wrongly determined.

Your baby and the umbilical cord are experiencing a growth spurt this week. Your baby’s sex can now be accurately detected on an ultrasound scan.
YES, absolutely! Our sonographers want to make sure you see your baby and don’t carry out a full abnormality check during your scan. Our sonographers will perform a wellbeing check during your scan, but this does not go into the level of detail required during an abnormality scan, which by itself could take up the entire time that you appointment is planned for, and would leave no time for you to bond with your baby or see them in 3D/4D. As a result, the wellbeing check doesn’t cover all the things that your midwife needs to see and know so its best to still keep up with all of your NHS scans and appointments.
This scan usually takes place between 14 to 21 weeks into your pregnancy. Most private clinics offer the scan from 16 weeks, while we at Sonobee Ultrasound Clinic are able to offer a baby gender scan from 14 weeks.

The chances of an error with ultrasound are up to 5 percent, says Schaffir. An ultrasound can be between 95 to 99 percent accurate in determining sex, depending on when it’s done, how skilled the sonographer is and whether baby is in a position that shows the area between their legs.
The simple answer is no. That’s right, girl/boy predictions done by expert sonographers are not correct 99.1% of the time. (Although they are right most of the time!)
