So this is more for fun than anything else, but I'm just curious about peoples past experiences and how things turn out as we find out the gender on our little ones....Are the "Old Wives Tales" usually right or wrong for you? Which tests did you use?
For my first, the chinese gender prediction was wrong - it said girl, and I had a boy.
I also took a few of those online questionaires, and sometimes it said boy and sometimes girl...this was because my symptoms were all over the map. (Things they use - craving salty vs sweet, the way you carry, tendency for DP to gain sympathy weight (mine did last time, but hasn't this time), etc).
I carried DS just like they describe those pregnant with boys (like a basketball, couldn't tell that I was pregnant from the back, etc), but I haven't started really showing yet with this one.
I've also heard about the ones hanging a ring over your belly and seeing if it rotates in a circle or swings back and forth (i forget which direction indicates which sex).
There is the pee test you can buy at the store, and I have heard that is pretty accurate if you are having a boy, but you may still have a boy if it reads girl.
I have also heard that kids are intuitive and will act particularly affectionate toward Mom if the LO is opposite sex, and standoff ish if LO is same sex as the child. (This pregnancy little boys have been very friendly, while little girls not so much...I didn't notice last time)
Is there any others? How have they worked for you? What about intuition or family members "just knowing"? Most of my family says girl for me this time...but I think that's the normal guess when you have a boy first.
With my son, my immediate thought was that he was a boy, but as time progressed I thought that he might be a girl. With this one, it's been the opposite - I was absolutely positive that I was having a girl early on, and now I think "boy".
According to the Shettles...Shettler? Theory about timing of conception, I should have a good chance at a girl this time...I'm not sure about conception last time, so I don't know if it rings true for me or not.
