  • I like this question because for some reason everyone thought i was having a boy but I had a girl. I even took one of those predicting tests and it said boy. She came out a very big baby, strong heartbeat, very thick bones. Our OB said her heartbeat sounded like a boy because it was so strong and steady. Girls tend to have a faster heartbeat?

    I did notice that my food cravings were most like what they describe when you have a girl. I wanted sweet food all the time.

  • None of them. Every thing that old wives tales predicted were totally inaccurate with my pregnancy!

  • None of the wives tales I ws told were true. Everything pointed boy but I had a girl. I had an ob who delivered babies for 20 years say "that's a slow heartbeat, if it's under 140 bpm it's always a boy." She even said she would bet her 20 yrs experience dd was a boy! The only indication I had was my favorite color went from baby blue to pink suddenly. Very odd. The gender prediction charts were wrong for me yet right for all my friends. I carried her right out in front like a basketball under my shirt, did not like anything sweet besides watermelon. This time everything is pointing girl so we will se what my favorite color becomes (lol).

  • The pencil hanging from the needle, except it said I'd have 5 and I have 1, but the gender of the first one was right.

  • if you carry low,its a boy
    if you carry high its a girl........

    i carried low with my 1st and it turned out to be a boy...
    i carried high with my second and it turned out to be a girl....
    i craved sweets with baby #1 and it was a boy
    i craved everything with baby #2 and it was a girl.....

    point is,some wives tales work for some people,some dont.....
