  • everyone said i was having a boy this go round because i'm carrying low. they were wrong
    i did eat bread crusts more with my first girl. there's gender prediction quizzes you can take online, it's just as accurate and way safer than mixing your pee with bleach.

  • You know what I tried and it was spot on. The needle and thread trick. You get a needle, thread some string through it, hold the thread and let the needle dangle above your palm. It's supposed to tell you what gender and in what order your children will be. It predicted all 3 of my kids every single time I tried it. If it spins in circles, it's a girl, if it swings back and forth in a pendulum motion, it's a boy. I tried it probably about 20+ times and it did circles, stopped, then circles again, then stopped, then swung back and forth pendulum style. I have 2 girls and am pregnant with a boy. I might not be making sense or confusing you, but I suggest googling it. I'm not even a believer in old wives tales but this was eerily accurate.

  • when i was preganant with both of my kids i craved pickles, and cuz they say sour is a boy and sweets are girls. Plus i just had a gut instinict it was boys. My first son was born in March, and cuz of his birthday and his dad's family all boys that r in the family are born in March so we think it was a family history. Then with my second i had the same craving, but just a gut instinict he was a boy, and i was right both times.
