    Well I have heard quite a few.

    The other day I read that if your left breast is bigger than your right then you are having a boy, and vice versa!

    Well my left breast is def bigger than my right so it might be a boy! :lol:

    Also I heard that if you crave sweet then it is a girl and if you crave savoury (which I am) then it is a boy.

    I know a lot of these things are old wives tales but practically everyone that I have read so far points to a boy and when I looked it up on the chinese gender prediction chart thing, it said a boy as well!

    If a girl pops out now I will be very surprised!

    Well I have just found these and my left breast theory has been thrown out of the window! It seems I might be having a girl now. :lol:

    You're more likely to be carrying a boy if...


    • Your baby's heartbeat is lower than 140 beats per minute

    • you're carrying all out front

    • you're carrying low

    • you're blooming in pregnancy

    • you didn't suffer from morning sickness in your first trimester

    • your right breast is bigger than your left

    • you look at yourself in the mirror for at least a minute and your pupils dilate

    • you crave salty food or protein, such as cheese and meat

    • your feet become cold more quickly than before you were pregnant

    • you tie your wedding ring to some thread, hang it over your stomach and it moves in circles

    • your skin becomes dry

    • you combine your age at the time of conception with the number of the month you conceived and the resulting number is even

    • your hair has become more full-bodied and shiny during pregnancy

    • the hair on your legs has been growing faster during pregnancy

    • you are more prone to headaches

    • your pillow faces north when you sleep

    • you're asked to show your hands and you present them palms down

    • you lie on your left side when sleeping

    • your urine is bright yellow

    • you were the more aggressive partner during love-making when you conceived

    • you eat a clove of garlic and the smell seeps out of your pores

    • your previous child's first word was "dada".

    You're more likely to be having a girl if…


    • Your baby's heartbeat is faster than 140 beats per minute

    • you're carrying all round

    • you're carrying high

    • you've missed the "blooming" period altogether

    • you suffered morning sickness during your first twelve weeks

    • your left breast is bigger than your right

    • you look at yourself in the mirror for at least a minute, but your pupils don't dilate

    • you crave sweet things, such as juice, fruit and sweets

    • you tie your wedding ring to some thread, hang it over your stomach and it swings from side to side

    • your skin is soft

    • you are more moody than usual

    • you're asked to show your hands and you present them palms up

    • you were the less aggressive partner during love-making when you conceived

    • you eat a clove of garlic, but you don't smell of it

    • you combine your age at the time of conception with the number of the month you conceived and the resulting number is odd

    • your hair has become thinner and dull during pregnancy

    • you lie on your right side when sleeping

    • your pillow faces south when you sleep

    • your urine is dull yellow

    • your previous child's first word was "mama".

    a good one which worked for both of my two was to look at the baby's head on the scan picture - if the back of the head is flatter then its a boy - if its rounded then its a girl......worked with mine!!

    My babys heartbeat is always over 150 and it is a boy...So I guess that throws the heartbeat theory out the window :)
    But I did do the chinese chart and it said boy...And I know a lot of people who did the chinese chart and it was right on...So maybe? LoL
