Gender myths. I took a gender quiz today of course all questions were myths. all of them meant girl except one out of 15.



from your experience, was any of these myths true?



for example:



1.heart rate
2.carrying high-low
3.b**b growth
4.cravings
5.SO's chromosomes
and so on and so forth...



i'm just reeeeally curious because I have my hopes up waaay too high for a girl, I think I've actually convinced myself that that's what im having even though I wont know til Thursday. Girl dust needed!! TIA.

Every myth I ever heard of in my LIFE said that I was carrying a little dude.



I'm now a proud mommy of a 19 month old girl. Haha.

I had a girl
1. Her heart rate was in the 160-170 range at 12wks it slowed down after that.
2. I carried high
3. I went from C cups to DDs
4. Both sweet and salty no weird cravings.

heart rate was not true for my babies, carrying high-low was not true for me in 3 pregnancies, unsure about b**b growth but dont think it was true, i craved nothing really with my boys but i liked salty, with my girl i craved lots n lots of sweets and had bad horrible morning sickness, no morning sickness at all with my boys. thats all i got for you honey!

1.heart rate - true for DS, false for DD
2.carrying high-low - true for DS, false for DD
3.b**b growth - I don't know this one
4.cravings - True for both
5.SO's chromosomes - true for DS, false for DD




Morning sickness myth was ass backwards. I puked night and day, all day with DS, I can count on one hand how many times I got sick with DD.
Chinese chart both lunar and not were right for DS, not DD. Drano test was wrong for both. Cabbage test (only done with DD) was right. The ring test was right for DS, not DD.

nope the only "myth" that was true for me was the morning sickness one if your carrying a girl your more likely to have horrible morning sickness and that was right for me i actually think that's a fact instead of a myth hmm idk.

Almost every myth gave me different answers. I reallllly wanted a girl and felt I'd probably have one...up until about a week before the anatomy scan I kept catching myself call 'it' a 'he'...on accident! It's like my mind actually knew I was having a boy. I almost cried in disappointment when I saw the shot between his legs...but I wouldn't have it any other way now! I wouldn't even mind having another boy..

The heartrate myth was opposite for me both times. My son had a "girl" heart rate. And this girl had a "boy" heart rate.

Well, according to my grandmother my butt got huge with DD which meant she was going to be a boy. :?

that sounds like me. we call it baby bean but we always say her unless we purposely say boy. I honestly think if I see a p***s I will burst into tears. I know that sounds horrible but im just being honest. my first I wanted a girl, and got a girl. second one I wanted a boy and got a boy. so I don't know how I will react if this one turns out to be a boy. i'll love it just the same and ill be over the disappointed later on that day but I REALLY WANT A GIRL!!
