This isn't about gender but a old wife's tale I read on the net made me laugh
"if a pregnant lady kicks a dog or a cat. Her child will either bark or meow"
Any people out there with barking or meowing babies? Lol
This thread was so interesting to read! Well done to bheditor for collating all the results
I can't wait for my BFP so I can test all these old wives tales out for myself!
Congrats to jfblady72 on the birth of her baby!
She is the 13th baby in our gender test group and she's a GIRL ... which means SIX of our tests were correct ...
Which ones were correct?
The GIRL STEALS YOUR LOOKS, CARRYING HIGH OR LOW and CRAVINGS all correctly showedGIRL
So did the LINEA NIGRA, DAD'S SYMPATHY WEIGHT and the BABY'S HEART RATE test
So here is where we are at:
Ring Test 7/11
Chinese Gender 6/13
Mum's intuition 6/13
Girl steals your looks 7/13
Carrying high or low 8/12
Craving sweet or sour 6/10
Linea nigra 6/13
Dad gaining weight 5/13
Watermelon or basketball belly 6/12
So according to our tests the heartbeat test is still the most accurate!!

So I know it might sound a little skeptical - but I have tried this on all of my mum-to-be friends and it works 100% for us - so just want to take it further and see how accurate is this:
to predict the gender of your baby you take:
Mothers age at conception + the month of your missed period+ 3
If result is an even number - baby will be a girl
If result is an odd number - baby will be a boy
I was 21 when we conceived + 7(missed my period in July) + 3 = 31 - odd - boy - and we did have a boy the following March
Very interesting to see how you go !
I was 31 when I conceived and the first month missed was June:
31 + 6 = 37 and baby was a boy!
But my next bub was conceived when I was 32 and first month was January:
32 + 1 = 33 which should mean boy but she was a girl
But this next one was conceived when I was 35 and first month was March, so:
35 + 3 = 38 so a girl???
Will have to wait till November before we know the answer ...
1. The Ring Test: GIRL
2. Chinese Gender Chart: GIRL
3. Mother's intuition: BOY
4. A girl steals your looks: BOY
5. Are you carrying high or low: GIRL
6. Have you had any cravings: GIRL
7. How's your Linea Nigra: GIRL
8. How fast is baby's heartbeat: GIRL (At 35 wks - have done this about 5 times over pregnancy and gotten mixed results, but mostly girl)
9. Is the father gaining weight too: GIRL
10. Are you carrying a watermelon or basketball: GIRL
Tally: 8 Girl2 Boy
EDD: 9th December 2013 - However being induced on 28th November 2013. We have decided to wait until baby's big debut to find out the gender so not long to go now.
Sorry forgot about this thread. Turns out our gender sway didn't work another little boy on the way I'm still in shock every old wives tale said girl. I felt like it was a girl. Still do lol oh well he is most certainly a boy!
We are ok with this though and have decided to try for one more after this bubba. We are going to put more into it next time whilst I did the supplements and the timing (DTD 4 days before Ov) etc DH didn't really jump in board.
So next time we plan on both losing weight and getting back the to the weights and fitnesses we were when we conceived the little girl we lost. We will both do supplements for a lot longer and also add in using cold and flu meds and maybe douching. If we end up with another boy we don't mind 4 boys will be awesome fun but I still really long for that little miss.
Good luck to everyone swaying. I hope you get the outcome ur after.
