To distract myself from the awfulness of today (the anniversary of my son's death), I am doing fun things---like eating bad for me food, watching cartoons with my kiddo, and trying out all the gender myths.



Chinese Chart = GIRL
Baking Soda + Pee. Fizz = boy. No fizz = girl. (BOY---but was wrong for 2DS)
Children around you can guess right. (DS says GIRL.)
Children of opposite gender will love you. (Boys are flocking to me, so GIRL).
Girls steal your beauty. (borderline, but so far, BOY so far).
More nausea = girl. (Nausea mild. BOY).
Cravings. Sweet=girl. Sour/savory = boy. (Mixed, but more BOY)
Heartbeat. Slow = boy. Fast = girl. (BOY. But was wrong with both my boys).
Belly/Carrying. Low = Boy. High = girl. (to be determined)
Mayan Test. Add mom's age at conception + year. Even = Girl. Odd = boy (GIRL)
Ring test. Circles = boy. Lines = girl. (GIRL)
Key test. I always pick it up by the round part. Always. (BOY)
Daddy's Weight. Gain = girl. Lose/same = boy. (GIRL).
Cold feet. Colder = boy. Same = girl (BOY)
Cabbage Test. Red/pink=boy. Blue/purple=girl (BOY)



Know any others?




Girl = 6 tests



Boy = 8 tests

if girls steal your beauty and your NOT having symptoms..that would actually mean Boy..lol
The baking soda test was wrong for me as well with my son.

There is a test called the Chinese Cabbage gender test or something like that. Lol. You boil red cabbage, strain it and then add equal amounts of pee into it. If it turns one color it is a boy. Another color is a girl. You would have to google it for more info. My friend just told me about it yesterday. Lol.

I don't have a clue. I keep saying boy when I talk about baby, but I've only had boys, so it could be habit. But I tend to call baby a her without thinking when talking to DS (because he is adamant it's a girl and won't talk to mr if I even suggest its a boy)

I have two boys. Both times I had no morning sickness, I had no acne, I didnt even feel pregnant till I got bigger.....



This time i am sick like no other, I have acne that gives teen boys a run for their money....I only eat sweets and cookies and cakes.......I am crying over eveything and I pee every 10-15 min and im only 8 weeks lol
so i have all the signs of a girl......but most of the charts say boy...so guess we will see lol



I hope its a girl!! I am sick of dirt and power rangers. I want pink and glitter. I want a girly girl like me!

I don't have a feeling one way or the other yet either. My main concern is a healthy baby. Although, I would love a little girl :oops:

With me already having two boys, I am sure if I have a girl, she would end up a tomboy. I would still put her in dresses and bows as long as I could. Lol.
