    Do you think there really is any truth in old wives tales or the chinese calender rule?
    Im desperate to know what sex my baby will be. Of course I hope its healthy and dont really mind but my son wants a sister and to be honest Id love a girl next too. Hubby not fussed bless him.
    Has anyone ever done one the old wives tales and it turned out to right?
    Just thought this might be an interesting subject for all those mum 2 be's out there who want to know and just cant wait for that scan.

    i just put in chinese gender chart in the search engine and found the test it asks you your date of birth and time zone and then date of conception then it gives you an answer, i'd never heard of it until now either

    I found a neat gender predictor based on old wives tales...Although it says I am having a girl and the chinese chart says boy :lol:
    It is still a fun little thing to try...Here is the link

    So far the chinese calendar says its a girl and the the one Pansy found says im having a girl but i still feel its a boy.
    I mean last time people said if you carry all the way the round its a girl but if your bump is just out the front then its a boy, but that theory went straight out the window as with my son i put on 4 & half stone and he was a boy!!! My starting weight both times were 8 stone. To be honest Im dreading putting all that weight again!

    There are more scientific waysof finding out what you are expecting, if you know the particular 'session' that resulted in your pregnancy, as its the mens sperm that decided the sex of the child. and 'male' and 'female' sperm have different characteristics and different conditons. So the question is, do you remember how it all happened?!?!

    I read on one of the Chinese calenders that you need to use your lunar age which is different to your normal age- I'm 29 really but 31 in lunar age and I got a girl result for being 29 or boy result for my lunar age of 31!! Bit confusing! I have a feeling that it's a boy though and both my Mum and my Nan correctly guessed the sexes of all of their children so who knows...!! (Apparently 71% of women do guess correctly!)
