OK ... There's no specific time-frame according to the old wives tale ... that I can see (or Google) anyway.
And, to be fair, this theory has been pretty much thrown out the window by any real research anyway.
So let's just go with the most recent scan. Everyone who has tested has probably tested at different times anyway ...
Just letting you know that my little boy Max was born on 31/08/2011! As predicted by my ultrasound, but not by my old wives tales!
EDD 29th FEBURARY
Ring - Girl
Chinese Chart - Girl
Intuition - Boy
Looks - Boy
Carrying Low - Boy
Crave Savoury - Boy
BPM - Boy
Husbands Weight - Boy
Basketball - Boy
Can't WAIT to find out!!!
A big welcome little baby boy Max and congrats to mum dicey!
The third baby in our gender test group has arrived!! And he is a gorgeous baby BOY ... which means only three of our tests were correct ...
But which ones ...
The Chinese Gender Chart has worked out correct in this case, predicting a BOY!
And the baby daddy did put on some sympathy weight which also points to BOY!
Plus dicey reckons her belly was shaped like a basketball which also means BOY!
dicey craved both sweet and sour so we couldn't really see if that one worked this time ...
So here is the tally so far …
Ring Test 1/2
Chinese Gender 2/3
Mum's intuition 0/3
Girl steals your looks 1/3
Carrying high or low 2/3
Craving sweet or sour 1/2
Linea nigra 1/3
Dad gaining weight 2/3
Watermelon or basketball belly 1/3
Interesting that mother's intuition is still not doing too well ... currently 0/3. In the lead at the moment is the Chinese gender chart, the carrying high or low test and theory about dad putting on weight too!!
AND congrats again to dicey! Wishing you and your little family all the best!!

I agree interesting that mothers intuition has been wrong all 3 times so far!!! Some others doing OK though at 2/3!
I am enjoying seeing these results finding them very interesting!
Our little man Owen arrived on the 1st September !!!
Turns out once again that mothers intuition was incorrect but many of the old wives takes were right!
Good luck to all the 'mummies in waiting' ... looking forward to hearing of your little arrivals!!
