Inside Pregnancy: Girl or Boy? | BabyCenter


– [Narrator] Your baby’s sex is set at conception. At around seven weeks your baby’s internal sex organs such as ovaries and testes begin to form in the abdomen. Male and female sex organs and genitalia look the same at this stage because they’re derived from the same structures. At around nine weeks boys and girls begin to develop differently. In girls a tiny bud emerges between the tissue of the legs. This bud will become the clitoris. The membrane that forms a groove below the bud separates to become the labia minora and the vaginal opening. By 22 weeks the ovaries are completely formed and move from the abdomen to the pelvis. They already contain a lifetime supply of six million eggs. In boys the bud develops into the penis and starts to elongate around 12 weeks. The outer membrane grows into the scrotal sack that will later house the testicles. By 22 weeks the testes have formed in the abdomen. They already contain immature sperm. Soon they’ll begin the descent to the scrotum but it’s a long journey. They’ll reach their destination late in pregnancy or for some boys, after birth. If you’re eager to find out whether you’re having a girl or a boy you’ll have to wait until you’re at least 17 weeks pregnant. That’s when the genitals have developed enough to be seen on an ultrasound.

  1. What about unisex colored clothes? Green, orange, violett, yellow, black and white are very nice. 🙂 Pink and light blue are overrated. 😛

  2. I found out with my first baby at 15 weeks it was a boy and I am pregnant with my second baby I hope it's a boy as well I can't wait to find out I'm so eager!!!!

  3. Im 18wks now and last week i had the ultrasound …. and the baby was in a breech position,so the doctor couldnt determine the sex … oooooooh I'll have to wait yet another month .

  4. My girl's going to be 18 weeks coming up and I hope we find out on her next appt !! I want a boy, she wants a girl but overall I want a healthy baby in the end regardless of gender.  Can't wait !!!

  5. my baby is 30 week now it a girl but before I see the doctor i could tell it a boy or girl my son was on my left side all de time now this baby on my right side

  6. True and not f**** low life and my f**** town I can't stand up f**** guys in Mendota there already burned out with so many f**** b**** if they got up on their their dick and everything else I don't like them in from the window to go out of town and I mess with guys that are 30 years old not guys are f**** old and already for a f**** dick is already f*** up and s*** they got so many pussies on

  7. this is my 6th month…but my doctor doesnt tell me a gender
    …she said she don't know the baby gender yet….what does it mean…when Wil I know..any body help me

  8. I'm 11 weeks and 6 days and they can already tell it's a boy I'm so excited for my baby boy to be born soon

  9. I know doctors aren't always accurate when it comes to these kind of things. Hey, these things happen such as mistaking a penis for a foot in all so when I become pregnant, I would have both a female name and a male name backed up just in case. If I'm told I'm having a boy, I will have a girl name for a backup just in case and same with a boy.
    One of the wivestales they say if you are expecting a boy is how you Carry. If you are expecting a boy, you may carry low. Pretty ironic because my older sister carded really low and she ended up with a boy

  10. I'm 13 weeks and have my Dr appt 2Mr. I'm hopping they can tell me the baby gender if so I will let you know. The videos are very helpful. I wanted to say Thank you for sharing

  11. If u egar to find out u having a girl or a boy u have to wait until u at least 17 weeks pregnant that's when the genitals are developed enough to be seen on and ultrasound

  12. I’m 12 weeks and 5 days. I find out next week what I’m having. I’m so excited. I already have a baby girl and would love a baby boy! Either way I’d be happy ?

  13. In the 6th week of pregnancy during the ultrasound scan My ? rate 119 BPM..
    Is it Y or X?…

  14. Am I the only person who came here just curious about how I developped in the wound ? Everyone's talking about having babies n shit.

  15. I am 20 weeks pregnant and my doctor said she thinks it's a girl because she didn't see any ball down there and also the baby's legs were crossed making it difficult. Now I don't know what to do because I wanted to buy things based on the gender.
