How To Tell The Sex Of Your Baby
Are you a parent-to-be and you want to know how to tell the sex of your baby? No matter how many children you help conceive, there is always a part of you that wonders what sex the newborn will be. These days, finding out the sex of your unborn child is very easy. Look below for a few ways to help you and your partner tell the sex of your unborn child.
- An ultrasound. If the mother of the unborn child is at least nineteen weeks pregnant, an ultrasound can be performed. An ultrasound will produce an image of the fetus from very high frequency sound waves. Discovering the sex of the fetus by ultrasound will depend upon the position of the baby at that time, but ultrasounds are very accurate.
- Amniocentesis. This procedure can be performed when the baby is nine weeks in utero. A small amount of amniotic fluid is extracted from the amniotic sac. Results are very accurate and you can find out the sex of your baby in about two to four weeks.
- Chorionic villus sampling. This test can be performed between eight and thirteen weeks of pregnancy. Results of the baby's sex can be expected in seven to fourteen days.
- Chinese birth calendar. This is an ancient Chinese chart that is used to determine the sex of an unborn baby. The Chinese birth calendar is ninety nine percent accurate and very easy to use. The only thing you will need to tell the sex of your baby is the mother's age and the month she is due to deliver.
Note: The first three procedures listed above are designed to detect abnormalities in your unborn child, and may not be performed just to determine the sex of the child.
