Although your child's genitals are developing already by week 10, an ultrasound usually cannot identify the sex of your child during the 1st trimester. However, the sex of your child can be discovered by tests such as the Harmony prenatal test; Harmony is a DNA-based blood test for chromosomal abnormalities that can also analyze the chromosomes of the baby and predict the baby's sex with great accuracy.
