  • I could have found out at the 20 week ultrasound, but we didn't.
    There are some wives tales about carrying high or low. and then something about tying your wedding rig to a string, but I don't know how they work. I bet if you googled it, you would come up with a ton!

  • Usually around the 18th week they can tell in the u/s if the baby is positioned properly. None of the old wives tales really work, but if you want to do it for fun here is one: http://www.preconception.com/resources/chart.htm

  • Technically they can tell at 15 weeks, but the baby is still so small, it is hard. They usually check around 18-20 weeks. I don't really believe in any of the old wives tales. I tried many of them and they were all wrong!Good luck!

  • Typically at least 16 weeks, but sometimes they cant tell then either.
