Well, have of them were wrong for me.

Chinese gender chart - Wrong

Needle test - Wrong

Heartbeat - I guess right b/c it stays in the 160s, but so did my son's

Baking soda test - Right

Intelligender - Right

So I'm going to say that old wives' tales are just that, tales.

For me. I noticed my belly set low.. boy! Which was right
Baby heart beat was 140 to 150. I figured boy
No real morning sickness, which was different with DD, I thought boy!
