    Default Old wives tales - any right for you?

    We just found out we have a 95% chance of a little girl. But I already knew that as the old wives tales said so lol
    Just wondering if they worked for you.
    I had the following and it all came back as a girl:
    Pimples
    Belly line only to my navel
    Bicarb test
    Cabbage test
    Chinese gender test
    Ring test
    Heart rate was at girl rate
    Morning sickness

    I didn't do the 'tests' but the wives tales were wrong for me! I had morning sickness (but not really bad, no vomiting), carried low and all out the front, no sweet cravings, clear skin. Everyone said I was having a boy... I had a girl

    Chinese gender chart was right for my Ds but everything else was wrong. Bicarb, wedding ring, I craved sweet drinks and food had terrible morning sickness.

    Actually did carry really low with DS which is another that was true.

    P2 B what was that about stomach above navel- font think I heard that one.

    Apparently Meld If the lines to the navel it's a girl if it goes past the navel it's a boy

    These said girl for us:
    Pimples (my skin is terrible since being pregnant)
    Wedding ring test
    Baking soda
    Morning sickness
    High heart rate
    There are a few more but can't remember the rest!

    We are having a boy. The only thing that said boy was the Chinese Gender chart.

    What line? The linea one? I don't have mine yet. Baby does feel higher this time like really hard above the naval and jiggly fat below the naval.

    Do you think this counts?

    Only Chinese gender prediction and carrying low was right for DS.
    But Chinese gender prediction was wrong for my SIL and she carried high and also has a son.
    It has a 50% chance of being right. Good odds I would say!!
