http://www.baby2see.com/gender/external_genitals.html This link shows you the genitals and when it's easiest to tell, they can give a good guess but not a definite at this stage as far as i know x

Is your scan at the Coombe in 3 weeks your dating scan? Usually they can tell from around 18 weeks; most people that want to know the sex would find out at the 20 week scan - (big scan) but that may be because they wouldn't have had a scan in between the original dating one and the big one. Good luck!

16 weeks this time around, earlier than last time. The consultant did a mini-scan and told us what we were having, although given it was only a mini scan it was far from definite. It was confirmed on my big scan at 22 weeks.
