  • About 18-20 weeks. I am pregnant now and my ultrasound tech said that's when we'll find out.

  • Just depends on how the baby is laying during ultra sound. Also, have you tried the wedding band on a string test? Take a gold wedding band and hold it over your belly. First, u have to determine what the answer will be by checking the rotation over a womans hand, and also a mans. When you see which direction the ring circles for each sex, then you can dangle it over your baby(the womb). This is a pretty acurate determination, although medical science poo poo's this as any kind of fact. Try it for yourself and see:)
