I am thinking BOY. Here are my reasons:

Midwife just guesses boy based on nothing but a feeling.
H/R has been in the 130's.
My first instinct when I got pg was that it was a boy (I thought DD was a girl initially)
Carrying super low.
My mom had Tarot cards read and drew the mother/son card.
Chinese Gender predictor says Boy.
Needle and thread test says boy (it also called my miscarriage and my daughter)

Truthfully to me these are all about as reliable as the u/s would have been to me! Yet my husband still says GIRL. I personally will be shocked if that comes to pass.

are there any other fun things to try?

Almost everybody else says girl, except my husband, 1 friend, and the lady at the Thai restaurant. But even though I've had a few girl dreams, I had a very clear dream that I was having an ultrasound and it was a boy.

Absolutely no intuition AT ALL! Had a couple of "omens" in each direction, no dreams that indicate gender, no concensous (sp?) amongst people people guessing... it will definitely be a surprise!!! & I can't wait!!! So excited to meet this baby!!!

Me too! I think of it as a boy, but I know that is just because I have a boy and I am just used to it. I am so excited to have the surprise this time around! We found out with my ds. I keep imagining the birth and having the baby come out and discovering if the baby is a boy or girl. I know it will be thrilling!

I think it's a girl.

*Sick until 12w for 24 hours a day (not sick one day with either of my boys)
*I have a feeling.

Coincidentally my blood sugars are the lowest of any pg (which I think is great!) and I'm measuring bigger than I ever have (as in 4w ahead) b/c both my boys measured right on - doesn't mean it's a different gender but I find it interesting anyways.

I'm excited to see if we're right or wrong!

I'm thinking boy. It's just a feeling, and it may just be that I can't imagine having a girl after raising ds for two years. With ds, everyone told me we were having a girl, and we really believed it. We were pretty surprised when ds was born.

DP and I both immediately felt like we're expecting a girl. My mom is famous for her child predicting dreams, and she's telling us a curly redheaded girl. My oldest friend's sister who didn't even know I was pregnant dreamt I had a girl, DP's sister saw our (nonexistant) ultrasound photos in a dream-yep, a girl. And finally, every dream I've had, bb's a girl.

His or her heart rate has been consistently above 140 for what that's worth. I've gotten different results with the Chinese gender chart depending on which website I use.

It's gotten to the point where I feel so sure that we'll be having a girl that I make a concerted effort to picture our baby equally as a boy or a girl so I'm not faced with a weird kind of surprise should my intuition be totally off.

It doesn't matter to us one way or the other and we're not into the genderizing anyway, but it sure is fun to speculate over.

I am feeling a girl, but it is just a feeling not based on anything

My initial and consistent instinct is that it's a boy, and that's what the Chinese gender chart said, as well...

Other than that, I don't know. The heartrate has been in the 140s, but my midwife said it doesn't really mean anything...

We'll see! I think and say "he" all the time, and so does dh, but we try to even it out when we remember. Cedric or Elizabeth? Just a few more weeks.......

It's funny, a lot of the time I say "he" subconsciously, but every once in awhile I refer to the baby as Abby's baby sister too...so I just don't know!
