So I was reading silly ways to see if your are having a boy or girl...

one book said whatever you dream you are having at night (or whenever you sleep) it's the opposite. Anyone else have any silly things they read or know that is suppose to tell you what you are having for fun??

  • My coworkers swore up and down that if you take a necklace and put a ring on it and shake it, depending on the way it swings will tell you. Or if you carry high, it's a girl--if you carry low, it's a boy. I carried very low and it was a girl!

  • We kept the sex of our baby a surprise so we did all sorts of silly things. There is the Chinese Lunar calendar which uses your age and conception month and we did something with a sting with a needle on the end and you circle it over your belly,,,,anyway, it all said boy and it was right for us! Have fun!

  • The heart rate...although there is some medical truth to it...higher heart rate for a girl, lower for a boy. It isn't particularly accurate until the end of the pregnancy though.

  • The heart rate thing was true for both my pregnancies. Both my girls had heartbeats from 155-179. This time I tried the red cabbage test and it said a girl! So that one did work for me!

  • I had weird dreams about having a boy but turned out shes a girl. Also all the old wives tales said it was a girl
