Testing the gender

Ok, this is my last pregnancy and I am all about soaking up the fun this time! I wanna try some 'old wives tale' tests and see what the results are and stockpile the predictions on my space. I just *know* they're gonna be 'boy'. Anyone else? The first test I tried was the *true* Chinese calendar (where it adjusts your age) My prediction was BOY! Of course Wink What was yours?

Oh my word...with DS#5 all the gender predictions said girl but he was ALL boy!

IDK if I'll do any or many but for kicks I did this one and it said boy.

Last time I decided to do them all (since I thought it may be our last)...The baking soda test, Cabbage test, placenta placement theory and the chinese gender. Yep...all wrong. Wink

We always do an early gender us and DH has already told me this will be no exception. I was thinking maybe Team Green but he doesn't want to. It's probably best...it really does help me bond. Plus, if it's DS#6 I need to make sure EVERYONE understand NO negative comments. We got some real doozies last time around. The nerve, huh!?

According to this it says I'm having a boy, I checked to see what it said my 1st would be and it said boy - and I have 1 ds so it was right. I would really love a girl but I'm totally convinced this is a boy, if I end up having a girl I'll be pleasantly surprised. I honestly don't care what I have as long as she/he is healthy. Biggrin

It says Girl. It also said that DD would be a girl. Who knows. I'm thinking it has at least a 50/50 chance of being correct! Smile

*I'm still not convinced I'm pregnant yet as the tests are iffy in my mind but*

If I go by my lmp for the conception date or my implantation (when I had spotting with cm) both say Girl Smile I have been convinced we'll have another girl for a while but I was so sure Emma was a boy ;). Maybe I think that because I want 3 and I know DH will want to go for a boy if we have a girl next.

For DD it said Boy Biggrin If you look on YouTube there are tons of preggo mommies that have done old wives tale prediction tests. It's an easy place to get test ideas. Biggrin

Mine says Girl. I did DS & DD just to see. It said DS would be a girl and DD would be a boy. So completely opposite. I feel like this is a boy only because this pregnancy has been very similar to my DS's. I am completely craving the exact same foods and my MS is the exact same way.

MIA!!!! A BFP?!?! Ummmm going to stalk Jan, girl! Ahhhh! SmileSmileSmile Congrats!

Mandy, for my boys, it predicted (to the best of my knowledge, LOL) Drake a girl and Seth a boy. Heh heh. I just *know* this is going to be a house of testosterone though.

I feel ya! We got/ get them all the time. We aren't going to find out the sex and I'm already preparing myself for comments if we have boy #6. Someone asked me the the other day what I'll do if it's another boy. I replied, "name him, hold him, love him".

Seriously! People just speak before they think. I mean really...
Great response, though! I hope I can be so nice.

It said I was having a boy. I am secretly hoping for a boy... DS is the only boy out of 4 on my side of the family and there 2 out of 5 on DH's side.

I would test my other kids but I don't remember their conception dates...

Mine said it's a girl! But I did DD and it said she should be a boy! LOL Yep at least it's 50% accurate. Smile I'm sorry for those of you that have had negative comments. I can't believe some people. I'm really nervous to tell my family that we are having our fourth baby because for one thing, we said we were done having kids and for another thing, when we told them that we wanted a third baby they said some negative things then, so I am apprehensive about hearing what they'll have to say about us having a fourth. eek. Oh well. I love being pregnant and having babies and watching them grow up so I could seriously have had several more kids. I just don't understand why others have to rain on our parades! Smile
