    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 232/232/M=1433) Only Almighty Allah knows definitely whether it is a boy or girl in the womb. إِنَّ اللَّهَ عِندَهُ عِلْمُ السَّاعَةِ وَيُنَزِّلُ الْغَيْثَ وَيَعْلَمُ مَا فِي الْأَرْحَامِ [لقمان : 34] You would better not engage yourself in this research that what is the sex of fetus. And accept happily whatever Almighty Allah graces you by His divine power and wisdom, whether a son or daughter.

    Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) knows Best
