    Default Gender Prediction-Wives Tales etc

    We didn't find out the sex of our bub, but I am convinced its a boy! I'm 26 weeks. Everyone (including people that dont know us that well) seem to think I "look" like I'm having a boy too. My feelings are just the way I feel, nothing to do with how I look.
    What do you guys think? All out front = boy? Any other theories you guys have on it?

    I'm 24 weeks and all out front and I'm having a girl! But my sister carried her girl the wide/round way and her 2 boys all out front. Could have just been a coincidence but she met the wives tale.. Me, not so much!

    Yeah my mum reckons she carried me and my sister all out front too.
    I think it really is just an old wives tale!!

    Are there any other theories for gender prediction that you have heard of?

    Absolutely every old wives tale said I'm having a girl. As did the chinese calendar and a ton of other things like that. I also had two psychics say I'm having a girl and they were right about the due months etc.

    I'm having a boy .

    Yeah I thought as much. There is no way to predict or tell is there?
    We probably still can find out as we are having another scan at 32 weeks.
    We want the suprise, but it's hard not to want to know who is in there!

    My belly bub smashed every old wives tale! I was convinced I was having a boy and these old wives tales agreed:

    Heartburn - if you have heartburn you're more likely to have a girl. (I've had zero heartburn)

    Skin - If it's dry you're having a boy (I've had dry skin right through this pregnancy)

    Cravings - If you crave salty then it's a boy (All I ever want is salt salt and more salt!)

    There are more but I can't think of them at this point. I'm having a girl

    I've actually just found a website with other old wives tales and most of them are actually right! Go figure!!

    I must say though that the chinese gender prediction chart worked for me and absolutely everyone I know it has worked for also. Eko you have to be the only one that it didn't work for

    Ok, Well as I'm convinced I'm having a boy, see how I go with these


    Heartburn - if you have heartburn you're more likely to have a girl. - I've also had zero heartburn - so boy fits this one.

    Skin - If it's dry you're having a boy - my skin has been YUCKY. I don't think I would say dry. Yucky breakouts more than dry. - So this one doesn't really fit.

    Cravings - If you crave salty then it's a boy- I'm not craving anything!

    I think the Chinese predictor thing said girl for me, but I'm not sure I used it right! And it was ages ago.
    I'm just sure it's a boy. I don't know why!
