    You can request a gender scan earlier than that. I had one at 16 weeks.

    The 12 week scan can only show you the "nub". Google "nub theory" for more information, but basically it's a penis-like protuberance that all babies have at 12 weeks, however there is a theory that you can determine the gender by the angle of the nub. It's by no means a scientifically proven theory and you wouldn't pin your hopes on it, but many people seem to get accurate results

    I had a gender scan in Brisbane done at 16w 6 days.
    It is non medical place called Miricle Me and they don them from 16weeks.

    Scan techs will be very reluctant to give you their opinion until at least 16 weeks. I had a scan at 13 weeks and the lady flat out refused to even look at the gender for me . I posted pics from that scan here, and some very helpful ladies took a look at it for me and guessed girl, and they were right!
