  • I tried everything (just for fun) with my first: the ring on the string, heart rate, Chinese gender calendar, weight gain, you name it. It all said I was having a girl, except I carried low which means boy. I had a boy. Second time around, everything but heart rate said boy, and I had a girl. So nothing worked consistently. (Except ultrasound, that was accurate both times. :-) )

  • I have had 2 boys & am now pregnant with my baby girl. The old wives tale about having morning sickness with a girl is 100% true for me. I NEVER got sick with my boys & now at 22 weeks I am still getting sick.

  • We put a ring on a necklace to try to see what my SIL was having. It didn't move but then we put it over my BIL's belly and found out he was having a girl. Lol.

  • I put a ring on a string with ALL FIVE of my babies, and it was RIGHT with ALL of them!!! Also, I was MORE SICK with my DD than my boys!! I had morning sickness with my DS for the first 3 months. With my DD, I had MS for SEVEN MONTHS and it was WAYYY WORSE with my DD TOO!! Also, my DD's heartbeat was 160!! My DS were NEVER above 135!!

  • I didnt have any MS with my daughter. Her heartbeat was slow, which supposedly menat she was a boy lol. I did have horrible heartburn and she came out with a full head of thick black hair. and the chinese gender prediction thing was right too!

  • my babies heart rate was in the middle of it could be either boy or girl, our first doc heard it and said,. Oh, you're having a girl. i was horrible all day sickness, which I only talked to mom's of boys who said, Yep, you are having a boy - I did that chinese thing where you dangle a necklace or string and put it above your wrist I think and it said I was going to have a very strong boy - I DID! but it also said we've have a girl next - which BETTER be wrong cause my very strong boy meant in every way! personality. crying, whining, tantrums, everything - he will be an ONLY child!! no sister! sorry max!
