    a week ago, my friend did the wedding ring on a bit of string test and it said I was having a girl... and so far its right.... providing i dont give birth to a boy... the Chinese lunar calendar was right for me too (so far) :)

    Well i was SURE i was having a boy from gut instinct even though all the signs/wives tales were saying it was a girl such as..... my bump being all up front and carrying high, that the heartbeat was 160 well over 140, so its making me wonder now the signs were true for us. Could be coincidence. xx

    The slower heartrate for boys and faster heartbeatr for girls has been true for me. It is also said that with girls you have a sweeter appetite and boys more savoury. This too has been true everytime for me. xx

    LO's hearbeat was 150-155 and it's a boy so that didn;t work for me. But, I am carrying very low so that works. I also found I'd gone off chocolate and other sweet stuff and started craving savoury things, especially sandwiches - does that signify anything?! I know lots of men claim not to like chocolate (but then eat it anyway...), so perhaps that's why I went off it??!!

    Well, my little girl had a has a heart rate from 140 to 150, I do like my sweets, but I always was more into that than savoury. I am carrying high-ish, and definitely tight.
    But I swore I was having a boy...All the old wives tales were about 50/50 for me, so really...

    I've also heard craving orange juice its a girl. If your OH is putting on weight too its a girl! If you nails are growing really fast its a boy. My chinese gender chart, the old wives tales and the wedding ring trick all say girl...I'm staying team yellow tho so it's another 20 weeks til I know if they are true or not!!!

    The chinese calendar got it right with both my boys and my sister-in-laws 4 kids.
    With my boys I hated sweet stuff,craved meat,carbs and all savoury foods.
    And I carried low with both.

    This time I am right off all meat,pasta,carbs etc
    And can't get enough of orane juice and fruit,oh and I am starting to dream of hot chocolate and carrot cake...LOL

    And I don't know what it is but I am drawn to girl clothes,colours etc in shops
    With my boys I was drawn to boy clothes from the start ad didn't even wander to the girl sections.

    The ring thing worked for me, the way I carry indicates girl, my babies hb is above 140 which indicates girl, and sounds like a horse. Overall I'd say they were pretty acurate, the only none acurate one was morning sickness-only had it in the mornings :)
