When we had our ultrasound a few weeks ago, the tech kept pointing out that she used her left hand much more than her right hand. I was just watching the DVD of the ultrasound again and noticed it. I thought he was just BS'ing us but it turns out there is some research stating that 9 out of 10 15/wk old fetuses have selected their dominant hand and use it in the womb.

For the Mommies having ultrasounds soon, it might be fun to pay attention to it

Here is an article about it on BBC News:

That's interesting! I'll have to watch my video again and see if I notice a preference. Mine was just one day shy of 15 weeks so it may be more noticeable at my anatomy scan.

I never knew that, but I do have pics of 2 of my kids sucking their thumbs (right hand) and they are right handed.

Well then the big question is, is the arm movement developing the brain to be left/right handed.... Or us the brain already developed enough and telling the fetus which hand to use
