  • From what I understand they are all just old wives' tales. Especially the one that goes by certain "symptoms." I had symptoms of having a boy and a girl. But I only had the girl! I think I was supposed to have a boy according to the Chinese predicter also. Whoops.

  • My son's heartbeat was slower than my daughters. The chinese calendar predicted both of mine right, but it could have just been a coincidence. I got bored both times I was pregnant and tried all of these things. Lol.

  • Old wives tales, but since you are having twins maybe you are having a boy and a girl. Fraternal twins rather than identical twins. Congrats though!!

  • Sweetie, they don't work. Some people believe they do because they are always right 1/2 the time. The only way you're going to know before they are born is by ultrasound or amnio.

  • It's just for fun, the heart beat is also just for fun lol. Well I mean with I'm pregnant with my 2nd daughter and both of their hearbeat has been above 140 which is for a girl anything below that is for a boy. Congrats on the twins!

  • haha i took one of those tests and it said "could not be determined" I just had to wait until my ultrasound to find out we're having a girl :)

  • Only an amnio can tell you for certain; even an ultrasound can fool you.
