Finding out the gender in the first trimester

Dr. Amy

Is there a test in your 12th week of pregnancy that you can find out the sex of the baby. I saw something on it on channel 7 news but i didnt catch the name.

Thank you,
Marie

Dear Marie,

You may be referring to a test called chorionic villus sampling (CVS). That's when a doctor removes a tiny piece of the baby's placenta from your uterus. By analyzing this tissue, the lab can tell the sex of the baby and whether he or she has certain birth defects.

Sincerely,
Amy
