I have heard of girls having faster heart beats.  Or, if you carry the baby straight out, you are having a boy.  Good luck momma..none of these proved to be true for me.

 I have heard ALOT but none of them have been true LOL...

I heard if you carry low its a boy. WRONG im low and a girl.. My sister was high and a boy...

I've heard if you gain all over its a girl.. WRONG im all belly and only gained 23 pounds (im 36 weeks)..

also about the craving.. sweet for a girl , salty for a boy... That one is tough for me lol.. i like a little of both!

The heart rate thing is wrong.. my little girls heart rate was VERY low the first 6 months then sped up

BUT the chinese predictor thing did work for me! LOL.. who knows!!

The chinese predictor was off for me all 3 times.And I carried both my girls low and my son high.

Both my daughters had heart rates in the 180s, my son has always been in the 150 range.

I am way hairer with my son then I was with my daughters and my sex drive was is in high gear carrying a son (extra testosterone).

Good luck!!

 if your belly touches your boobs it's a girl, if you can fit your hand between there without pushing anything out the way, it's a boy lol
