Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum.
Revealing the gender of the baby is considered illegal. You can request a radiologist to interpret the scan images (if they have been focused on genital area) under special circumstances. Usually it is better to wait and watch such that there is no bias towards the unborn child. The important fact is that the baby should not have any congenital anomalies. The scans were devised and are done to assist in finding if any anomaly is present and to look for fetal well being to plan out further care, not to disclose the gender.
Take care.
