Can you find out the gender early in ultrasounds?

Honey🌚 • 27. Pcos. Married. 👼🏻🤰🏻💙3/2020

Had an ultrasound today and I asked the tech if she could find the gender for me today but she said it’s too early. I am 12 weeks and 5 days. Baby is measuring 12 weeks and 6 days

Here is a picture of the baby with legs up in the hair. Why does that look like a penis between its legs? J am no expert but I just thought that. But in the second pic nothing’s there

Maybe it’s a penis maybe it’s not 😂
