Actual gender vs. Old wives tales/chinese predictors?

Postby dreamingofbab » Mon Feb 09, 2015 4:46 am

Hello Gorgeous mommies to be! I am having my gender scan in just over a week and dying to know how many of your results from your gender scans matched Chinese gender predictors and / or other old wives tales?

Please Share!! :)

I am full faced, carrying wide, and definitely not looking very pretty (girl?) but I Have NO sweet tooth, morning sickness only lasted a few weeks and a HUGE appetite (boy?)
Chinese gender says I´m having a girl :)

Boy: Mayan calendar, morning sickness wasn't too bad (relatively speaking), 1st trimester heart rate was lowish

Girl: Chinese calendar, acne got worse, I just had a gut feeling it was a girl

Winner: Boy!

Chinese calendar predicted boy (but another one said girl?). I didn't know if this would be accurate with IVF.

Morning sickness (girl), horrible skin / breakouts (girl), carrying on the left (girl), heart rate above 140bpm (girl), craving salty & sour (mostly boy). Dreamt that I was having a girl.

Just found out today that baby is a BOY. So there's that for ya, haha.

Every old wives tale gave us girl, Chinese predictor boy. And we're having a boy! lol the only thing that accurately predicted it was bump height- I am carrying MEGA low, but my bump didn't appear/show up until 21 weeks, so we already knew by the time it was visible.

Literally everything pointed to boy for me, but I am having a little girl! I don't believe in any gender myth anymore. Be it Ramzi, cravings, calendars. None of it! Lol.

Heard an interesting theory today… had a dentist appointment and told him I was pregnant. He asked how my gums/mouth has been and I said for the most part fine. He said "I think it's a boy because girls tend to wreak havoc on women's mouths!" Of course I am having a girl… but just thought it was interesting and I'd let you guys know :) I did have some issue with bleeding gums at the very beginning of my pregnancy though!

The gums thing gives me hope; that was an early pregnancy sign with Andrew but I have never had gum pain like this and I wake up miserable. My teeth are throbbing and I'm messaging my gums desperate for relief. I'm ten weeks now.

Chinese said boy last four but girl this time. I'm not showing like I was with my boys and interesting to me my hair is falling out still. That never happened with other pregnancies.

My heartbeats are all high and I don't credit too much on that alone. When I find out what I'm having I'll have more to add.
Due Sept. 7th, 2015 carrying this miracle to term!!!

Wow ladies!! Awesome! And congrats to you all! Seems the Chinese gender and other signs are definitely just for fun and absolutely no indication of what you'll have...

This is an awesome thread! Thanks Dreaming for pointing me over here! I'm only about 9 weeks so I don't know gender yet, but here are my symptoms:

horrible sickness (girl)
bleeding gums (girl)
acne-only have a few zits but I NEVER have any normally (girl)
cravings-mixed, but mainly salty (boy)
Chinese gender chart (girl)
Mayan test (girl)
super moody (girl)
left breast bigger than right breast (girl)
having more headaches (boy)
not much of a sex drive (girl)
rounder face (girl)

So my symptoms are indicating girl (now watch it be a boy). I can't wait to find out what we're having!
