Old wives tales to predict gender??

Postby skye skye » Wed Feb 11, 2015 11:43 am

So ladies, I'm sure we've all heard of the old wives tales that predict gender. Have any of you ladies had success with any wives tales that have accurately predicted your baby's gender?? Please share!

With my older girls the craving sweets was true. This time all the myths point to boy, but I am having another girl. They're fun but these myths have a 50% chance of being right.

Hi Skye SKye, I started a similar topic and you can see what some of the ladies have said here:

viewtopic.php?f=22&t=264522

I think it is all just that - old wives tales. I thought Chinese Gender was always correct but seems not. When are you finding out? I am finding out on Wednesday :) Cannot wait x

Trying - I've heard that about sweets for having a girl. I'm not sure that would work for me though. I've never much cared for sweets - can't see that changing much (or so far anway!) lol

Dreaming - I'll check that out! You're so lucky to find out next week! I've got a LONG way to go until I find out. I'm only about 9 weeks right now. UGH! :doh: :roll: I'm actually kind of nervous to find out...I really REALLY want a girl, so if it's a boy I know I am going to be super upset. I'll probably start crying about it. LOL

Hey ladies!
I will be finding out the gender in a few weeks but old wives tales are so interesting to me!
So far, everything is pointing to a boy. Everyone is saying they predict boy.

Based on how everyone is carrying (high/low) what is that indicating?

Try the Ramzi technique it's 97% accurate at 6-9 weeks :-) x

If you are craving sweets, it's a girl. One is ring test. If it swings left to right, it’s a boy. If it rotates, it’s a girl. :D

Every single myth pointed towards boy for ne, but I am definitely having a girl. I don't hold any faith in these old wives tales except for a way to pass time.

Every craving and myth for me pointed towards a girl, as did the Chinese gender calendar. Only one friend thought I was having a boy, everyone else we told immediately said it was going to be a girl. Had my anatomy scan last week and it's a no-doubt-about-it boy!

According to the Chinese gender chart and the ring test this is a boy. Only (a long) time will tell!
