  • Don't believe any of that old wives tale stuff. The thing to look for is from the paternal side of the family. Only the father of your child and other men in the family count. Look at all of the men and see how many girls and boys have been born on that side of the family. The womens side of the family does not matter.

    Like in my case, with my DD all children that were born for like 4 generations were all males, so we assumed she would be male. Wrong! We had a little girl!

  • It's basically like your significant others counts, then his Dad, then his Dads Dad (that'd be significant others grandpa), etc. Any Uncles born to the grandpa, any children your significant other has, etc. Those ALL count. Say that your significant other has a sister, any children she has will not count since that male is not directly blood related to you. Any males/females born on your side of the family do not count either.

  • There is a slightly higher chance of having a boy than a girl in any pregnancy but there is no real way to predict it. For every 100 girl born the is 106 boys.

  • Your chances are 50/50. :) I was wrong with both of mine,(we didn't find out) I carried way different than my sister who was pregnant at the same time and she was having a boy. I would walk into restaurants or stores and people would say, your having a girl aren't you? I wanted mashed potatoes, and skittles. I had a little boy. My dh has one sister, and his grandpa had all boys.
