  • They are all old wive's tale hun. Trust me I was trying to figure out what I was going to have for weeks! Everyone said it looked like I was having a girl because I was carrying high. Then I thought it was FOR SURE a girl because the baby's heartrate was always 160 or higher. I even took quizzes online to see if it could tell what I was having. All said I was having a girl. Welp I'm having a boy! There is no way to tell until they show you that little weewee on the ultrasound machine! Sorry!

  • For me when I had a girl my belly was right under my boobs. Now I am pregnant with a boy and it is lower. Also I had horrible acne and mood swings with a girl, and now i am calmer. My acne isn't that much worse than when I have my monthly and it is just now showing up. I am almost 7 months. Hope this helps.

  • The only way to truely know is a sonogram that is crystal clear and birth, everything else are just old wives tales. With my third ultrasound we had a large shot of testicles and his penis, most definately a I love that picture!

  • Well, nothing is more accurate than the sonogram but I have heard of that same wives tale. I love trying out the wives tales while I wait for my 20 week sonogram to tell me what we are having! I am 15 weeks now and have done the wedding ring on a string test (hold over your belly and if it goes in circle its a girl, back and forth is a boy). I have heard a lot of people say its been right for them everytime and many saying its been in the family a while is consistantly correct. Its fun to play around with! Mine always does big circles saying a girl. I looked up the Chinese Gender Chart also which some people swear by and it said I was having a girl. I also crave sweets and the babies heart rate is always well over 140 (160ish) which are also supposed to be signs of a girl. So, who knows! Many wive tales are pointing to a girl for me. I guess I'll find out in about 5 weeks! Congrats!
