Do you believe in the Chinese calendar for conception? It tells you what your going to have (boy or girl) with your due date being in a certain month? Or how about the old wives tales saying "if you go too deep, you blow the balls off" lol or "boys are only conceived in the missionary position"

What do you believe? Have you followed any of theses and they actually turned out right?

I have a DD and we would love a boy. Part of me believes these wives tales and calendars but I'm
Very aware that it won't matter what position or what calendar you look at, The male sperm chooses the sex of the baby

The chinese calendar was wrong with my daugter and I am hoping it's wrong this time because Hubby wants a boy :)

I don't believe in any of the myths or old wives tales. Some of them will be right, there's a 50/50 chance. But if any of them accurately predicted sex, they would be right at least almost all the time. Everything has a margin of error, even ultrasound.

Nope. It's only been right for 1 out of 5 of my babies (including my son who I m/c in Sept).

I don't know. All of these predictors (the Chinese predictor, the baking soda, the heart rate) all say I'm going to have a girl. I suppose only time will tell :)
