What is the most accurate way to find out the gender of a baby?
Other methods for determining gender

What week is baby’s gender formed?
Your baby’s gender is determined at the moment of conception – when the sperm contributed a Y chromosome, which creates a boy, or an X chromosome, which creates a girl. Boys’ and girls’ genitals develop along the same path with no outward sign of gender until about nine weeks.
What month do you find out gender?
If you have a prenatal blood test (NIPT), you may be able to find out your baby’s sex as early as 11 weeks of pregnancy. Ultrasounds may reveal sex organs by 14 weeks, but they aren’t considered fully accurate until 18 weeks.

Can you see gender at 13 weeks?
The accuracy of determining your baby’s gender increases with how far along you are in the pregnancy. The accuracy can vary from 70.3% at 11 weeks to 98.7% at 12 weeks, and 100% at 13 weeks. Eleven weeks is the earliest that sex determination can be carried out with an ultrasound using a method called the ‘nub theory’.
