    Default Theory on sex of bub

    Does anyone have a theory on the sex of bubs.

    One I've heard was if its a boy you like savory foods... If its a girl you like sweet (I had a boy and I wasn't interested in sweet stuff at all so maybe)

    Another I've heard was that you throw up more when it's a girl ( I know people who have had girls that didn't throw up at all so that one doesn't really work)

    Anyone have any other theory's?

    The only "theory" I think that may have some merit is the heart rate theory. Apparently girls have a higher heart rate (over 150) and boys have a lower rate.

    There are always exceptions though.

    When I was pregnant I did the bicarb test (girl result), the red cabbage test (girl result) and the heart rate was over 150 (suggesting girl).

    I ended up having a girl.

    So who knows?

    If your carrying in the front it's a boy, the back if it s girl. High = girl, low = boy. You glow when your having a boy, girls suck the life out of you umm I think that's it

    I don't believe in any of them. I craved savoury foods with 2 out of my 3 girls. I carried low and at the front with all 3 girls. And the heart rate theory should only be applied when you are actually in labour (several midwives have told me) and obviously even then isn't reliable.

    But hey, they are all fun!!

    Have a search on youtube...I know there are plenty of videos on how to do the red cabbage test. You'll probably also find the bicarb test on there as well.
