    Hi I am 20 weeks today but I have felt a tingling sensation when I urinate
    but it’s not this because of the baby moving? Or?

    I like your video’s, but notice that it indicated above you don’t support
    finding out fetal gender. why is this? When so many couples look forward to
    finding out the gender of their baby.
