    Not to sound harsh, but I have no idea. There is no way to tell without an ultrasound or an amniocentesis.

    I think you have asked this in the wrong area. How about moderators put this in the pychic and fortune telling board?

    Like the above answers have all said, there is no way to tell until there is an ultrasound, or amnio. Done. Me friends mom swears up and down on her" pencil test" that she can determine what you are having. She holds a pencil above the inside of your wrist and depending on which way the pencil twists that is what you will have, and she can there fore determine how many children you will be having as well. She swears that it worked on her, and it has to do with something flowing in your blood stream that the pencil lead reacts to.. welll. I say that is aload of crap. First of all, the sperm of the MALE is the one who decides what the sex of the baby will be. There are lots of little tests and predictors out there that swear they can tell you the sex of your unborn babe, but they are all false promises, unless they are the medically run tests from your doctors office as listed above. We all suffer with the insatiable desire to know what the sex of our unborn baby will be, but until that ultrasound comes into play around the beginning of month 5, you'll just have to wait like the rest of us. Don't let yourself be fooled by all the fake promises out there, and just be patient, you aren't that far off from knowing now. Best wishes.

    This is something to ask your Ob/Gyn

    Can actually cause miscarriages. The safest and untrusive way to find out the sex of the baby is with an ultrasound.

    Yes, Joe, they can cause miscarriages, but they are medically necessary for a woman over 35 who is pregnant. The incidence of a miscarriage is lower these days because it is done with a little camera and the chances of the needle hitting the baby are lower.

    I had one with my youngest, I was 38 and had chemo in the past and needed to know if my little one was healthy. They will not do an amnio just for the sex of the baby, it has to be medically necessary to do one.

    That happened to a friend of mine. Twice!! She was told both babies would be boys. NOT!!

    But an amnio is 100% accurate.

    I knew as soon as I saw the ultrasound video at 18 weeks. My wife was set against finding out and I wanted to know. So the doctor want to be (me). Studies the video and pause and play and looked over several times and I knew the baby had a pee pee. I was so proud to know I was going to have a boy.
