Boy or Girl? Finding Out the Sex of Your Baby

One of the biggest moments of having a baby has always been finding out if it’s a boy or girl. However, now that we have ultrasound we don’t have to wait till the birth. You’ll be able to decide whether to find out during your scan in London or to keep it a secret till the baby arrives.

Ultrasound in London

When Can You Find Out?

It is usually possible to tell whether your baby is a boy or a girl from about 16 weeks. When you have an ultrasound at the London clinic after this time, the sonographer should be able to tell the sex of your baby. However, it is up to you whether you want to know your baby’s gender or not.

Should You Find Out Your Baby’s Gender?

Choosing whether to find your baby’s sex during the ultrasound is a very personal decision. Here are a few points you might like to consider when deciding if it is the right choice for you:

Reasons to Find Out

  • It can be easier to pick a name for your baby when you can narrow down the choices to a single gender.
  • You’ll have an answer for all the friends and family who ask if you’re having a boy or a girl.
  • You can match your nursery décor and baby clothes to the gender.
  • You can’t wait to find out!

Reasons Not to Find Out

  • You want to enjoy the traditional surprise at the birth.
  • You’d rather get gender-neutral baby gifts rather than end up with everything in pink or blue.
  • You’re looking forward to telling people when the baby is born.
  • You’re patient enough to wait.

The Sexing Ultrasound

If you decide that you do want to know your baby’s sex before the birth, just ask your sonographer when you have an ultrasound in London. You can arrange a sexing scan at any time after 16 weeks or wait until your next routine ultrasound to find out. However, if your baby is in the wrong position you might have to wait till your next scan.
