  • holding a string with your wedding ring over your belly. I cant remember though what it is for girls, or boys. I do know that if it swings back and forth one way it means one thing and if it swings in a circle it means another.... Anyone else heard of this and remember which is which?

  • The one that proved true for me was the cravings. If you crave salty, sour, or spicy things you are having a boy... If you are craving sweets, it's a girl. I have found this true with me and even with others I know. There are a lot of sayings, but the others I don't really depend on too much!

BOY LIST, CARRY LOW, CRAVE SALTY OR SOUR FOODS, HAVE A ROUND BELLY, HOLD WEIGHT IN YOUR STOMACH, HAVE LITTLE MORNING SICKNESS, HAVE DARK NIPPLES,YOU HAVE FAST GROWING LEG HAIR, YOUR PEE IS DARK, YOUR BBY HAS A LOW HEART BEAT, RING DANGLED OVER BELLY SWAYS FROM SIDE TO SIDE, YOUR FEET ARE COLD..
