hi XXXXXX,
Thanks for the query.

you can find out the presence of pregnancy by urine pregnancy test or by blood test for pregnancy now.

as you know the gender will be determined by the chromosomes from father if X chromosome comes from him it will be girl or Y comes that will be boy,

you can find out the gender accurately by ultrasound examination by around 14 weeks of pregnancy which is safe and non invasive method,

some companies are advertising about kits which can determine the sex of the baby but the accuracy is not completely known,
so better to go for ultrasound.

Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries. If you are satisfied with all my answer, please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.

Doing an Ultra sound on 14th week is fine. But who will say the gender of the baby? Is there any doctor who tells the gender of the baby ?? In Chennai or any where in Tamilnadu? Kindly help plz..

hi XXXXXX,

as we all know prenatal sex determination is banned in India, so usually no doctor will say that, unless you have any family gynecologist who as in part of growth monitoring of the baby may tell accordingly but just for sex determination means it will become against law,

if you are not having that source then better to go for the kit as you asked previously,
here I am giving one link that may be useful to you if you contact them, anyhow remember the information given there is purely from manufacturers side only.
