Even though a baby's genitalia starts forming around 6 weeks, boy and girl baby genitalia looks pretty similar up until about 14 weeks. This is why gender ultrasounds are usually not done until between 16 and 20 weeks. Waiting until 18 weeks gives the ultrasound technician a better view, that is if the baby cooperates.

Other genetic testing during pregnancy, such as the CVS test done between 11 and 12 weeks, or the amniocentesis done between 16 and 22 weeks, can also tell you the gender of your baby.
