I got this link when I was in another due date club, and though it'll probably be more accurate when we're further along, I thought I'd share. It's really cute. You take a test answering questions based on old wive's tales, and at the end, they tell you what the likelihood of your having a boy or a girl is in percentages.

Also, how many of you will be finding out if you're having a boy or girl?

With the first gender prediction test it was 57% for boy. With the chinese predictor it was also boy. I was sure this was a girl.

Hmmmm...

The old wive's tale site said boy 75%, but in my heart of hearts this feels like a girl. Either way, we'll know in 10 weeks. This time we're going to try and find out the sex!

Anybody else change their mind about finding out? With my last pregnancy, we were adamant about not finding out if they were boys or girls (we knew they were idential b/c of complications early on). This time, though, we want to start calling our baby by his or her name. And (this is goofy) I'm a quilter and I want to make a very specific baby quilt for a boy or for a girl. I've even gone out and bought the fabics (for both) already!

Has everyone heard about that new blood test? From 6wks pregnant on, for about $200 (it might be more $$), you can take a home blood test, send it in to a lab, and find out the sex of your baby. It's highly accurate. A few weeks ago they were talking about it on NPR all the time.

The old wives' tales test has too many things I can't answer yet! Kicking, etc. But it says 50-50%. The Chinese predictor says girl.

We are going to go ahead and find out the sex. I don't mind one way or the other, and BF wants to know. So, OK with me.

The Chinese gender chart says I'll have a girl....so does this mean 2 girls or 1 girl/1 boy? LOL Of course, out of my 5 previous pregnancies, the chart was right only 50% of the time (and with my boy/girl twins, it couldn't lose, LOL), so I don't put a lot of faith in that system.

Here's a link for the Baby Gender Mentor test. I know a couple women who have used it and were thrilled with the process/outcome. If I weren't having twins, I'd be doing the test, definitely.

Last time, all the old wives tale predictions told us we were going to have a girl. Dh had a strong "girl" vibe also. I guess ds didn't get the message, lol! However, the only thing I looked at that said "boy" was the Chinese prediction calendar.

This time, the calendar says I'll be having a girl!

Thanks for the link Tummy. On the chinese chart, it says I'm having a girl. According to old wive's tales, it's 66% girl so far. A girl would be great. But I don't want to wish too hard for one gender. I don't think I'll find out until the very end. I liked guessing what the baby would be, and I liked be surprised when the baby came out.
