1 We have observed anecdotally that the vast majority of pregnant women presenting to our obstetrics clinic for second-trimester ultrasound screening request gender identification. At these visits, many mothers-to-be say they can perceive or “feel” the gender of the unborn baby.
Can you just know the gender of your baby?
Since an ultrasound creates an image of your baby, it can also reveal the sex of your baby. Most doctors schedule an ultrasound at around 18 to 21 weeks, but the sex may be determined by ultrasound as early as 14 weeks .

Do babies have quiet days in the womb?
Most women will be aware of babys movements by about 20 weeks, although this may occur earlier with a second or subsequent baby. You may still have quiet days up until about 26 weeks of pregnancy.
When will my husband feel the baby kick?
Most women can first share their babys movements with their partner between weeks 20 and 24 of pregnancy, which is partway through the second trimester. Youll probably begin to feel your baby move yourself between 16 and 22 weeks.
Can my baby feel it when I rub my belly?
After around 18 weeks, babies like to sleep in the womb while their mother is awake, since movement can rock them to sleep. They can feel pain at 22 weeks, and at 26 weeks they can move in response to a hand being rubbed on the mothers belly.
What makes a baby move in your belly?
Drink something. Chug a glass of cold OJ or milk; the natural sugars and the chilly temperature of the drink are usually enough to spur movement in your baby. (This is a popular trick in mom circles that actually does seem to work.) Make some noise.
