    Hi ladies,
    I'm sure many of youhave seen all sorts of online quizzes that you fill in and they guess what you're having. They're always based on old wives tales. There's this one question that keep coming up in the quizzes that I totally don't understand....Can you help me figure it out??

    The question is: Does you pillow face north or south?

    What does that even mean?? How do I figure out if my pillow faces north or south???

    Errrrr havn't got a clue but would be interested to find out what it means!!!!!
    My friend did the needle and thread test on me when I first found out and she was saying its never let her down and how she believes in it 100%, well she said i would have a boy, went for a private gender scan at 17 weeks and was told we are having a little girl, she is actually happy that her theory is wrong as she reckons it told her she was destined to have 3 boys :)

    I put a few up in the pregnancy forum here and seemed 50 50 , couldnt come to a conclusion at all. :( I will have to wait to the end as we have no private scanning here and they wont tell. But I am going with boy still.

    I always assumed it meant is the head of your bed facing north or south, but I might be wrong

    It means which direction is your head pointing when you lay down to sleep. My pillow points north - it's on the north side of our house :)

    I always think you can tell by the shape of your bump and by gut instinct. worked for me anyway!

    I always assumed it was asking which way your bed faced. Having said this, I know the sex of my baby - have had LOTS of scans that have confirmed it, yet most online quizzes I do tell me I'm having a girl!
