weither you are carrying high or low. Weither the heart rate is fast or slow. or weither a ring hanging on a piece of the mother-to-be's strand of hair dangling over the stomack is a way to detect. Has any of these old-wives-tales come true for you?

I heard a new one yesturday. If you have a firm stomack throughout you pregnancy you are having a boy if it is mushy its a girl....what!!! I heard a neat one when I was pregnant with my first son. If you take a new born baby and have it try to stand on a mother-to-be's stomack and it brings up its legs its a girl. If it stands firm its a boy.

Then there is the position you are in while making the baby. I have also heard of the amount of days after you ovulate that you get pregnate determines the sex of the baby(this one I'm not sure how exsactly the myth works)

If you swear on the position juring conception then please tell me the wild thing my husband and I were doing while my boy/girl twins were being concieved....hehehe

I would love to hear your stories, views, family tradition and myths on determining...

Be who you are and say what you feel because those  who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

Have you tried the Gender Determination board? They might have what you're looking for.

I am not expecting. I just was curious what other mothers thought!

OH, lol!

You know, with my ds (my first, 12 years ago), I tried the Shettles book just for fun! It worked, lol! He says to time intercourse as close to ovulation as possible for a boy. When we wanted to have another child I didn't really care what gender we had, but looking back we made a girl " attempt".

I just had my 2nd dd 4 months ago and I was so POSITIVE it was a boy (not because we tried for a boy, we didn't care what gender), but I just had this strong feeling it was a boy. I was so shocked when the u/s tech said girl!

I know that I had really bad m/s with both of my girls, but my ds I just remember having this bad taste in my mouth for practically 9 months. I'm not sure what gender it is but I've heard that if you crave meat or salty foods it's a boy (?) I know with this last pregnancy I craved Wienerschnitzel! LOL!

My Vietnamese manicurist swore that I was having a boy b/c I craved more sour than sweet foods. Of course, I also carried like a basketball (low and in front), not a watermelon! ;)

I'm all about positioning, that seems to be accurate for me!

See I heard that if your face looks awful while pg it's a girl because a girl "steals your beauty" LOL! They're all different!

Here's a quiz if anyone is interested. If you answer the questions it will give you a list of the myths

Apparently I have a 69% chance of having a girl. The chinese conception chart also says girl.

Hey Judi--the chinese chart said DS would be a girl...the u/s said VERY differently!;)

My vote is for the whole "how you carry thing" b/c I've always been able to predict from that...

None of the OWT have worked for me. While I carried DD#1 very high, I never got sick once. W/ DD#2 everything was completely different-carried low & sick as a dog. The chinese charts said boys for both my girls & their heart rates were low, like mine. We're walking contradictions. I'll find out tomorrow-hopefully-what this one is. It has a very high heart rate-in the 160s-so it'll be interesting to see if it turns out to be a boy.
