What are some signs to look for that I might be having a boy?

I am about 6 weeks prego and I have to know if Im having a boy or girl..Im so impatient and excited I really want to know. I am wanting a boy since we have a girl already. So far I havent been nauseous like I was with my daughter and havent broke out much, but wat other signs could I look for? I know its not 100% by just symptoms but it will be fun to guess!

  • Just for fun... I used to do this. I heard that boys have a slower heartbeat than girls. Since I had five kids I always kept track of their heartbeats just to see. It actually was right all five times. My girls always had a faster heartbeat than my boys. I know that it is not 100% or scientific, but it is fun to try and guess.

    Good luck!

  • well hate to tell ya but you just have to wait till your ultrasound. I have two boys and was really sick with morning sickness with both and never broke out with either one. Its hard to tell based on that and every pregnancy is different.

  • i knew when i was going to have a girl when i started getting really sick when my x-hubby and my fiance came just really depends on when u feel....but once u start showing if u carry high it is a girl and if u carring low it is a boy or u can do the needle on a string over your belly or palm of your hand....or just wait for the ultrasound....

  • I don't think there are any signs. In my day, we didn't even have ultrasound so it was a big mystery until the baby was born!

  • Chinese gender calendar, carrying low (can't tell until you start showing), low fetal heartrate, if your husband doesn't gain wait, if you crave salty/sour/bitter foods, if a ring or pendant on a string held over your belly swings back and forth instead of in a circle, if you pick up a key by the big end, if you gain weight in front instead of in your butt. With my first (a boy), though, I carried low, but everything else said he was a girl. With my second (a girl), her heartrate was high, but everything else said she was a boy. So have fun with it, but don't go buy blue clothes just because of how you picked up your car key and because your husband's losing weight. ;)
