Mine were mixed. I don’t believe any of it and it kinda just sets people up to be hopeful of one gender and be disappointed! IMO.

SadieBee:  Mine are mostly boy, with just enough girl thrown in to make me wonder. I’m team green and at 34 weeks! I’ll be finding out one way or another soon enough!

Of yours listed above, mine were all boy (except la linea negra…still don’t have one at all) and I’m due to have a baby girl in a couple of weeks!

I had a girl — here’s what the old wives’ tales predicted for me:

Linea Negra (pelvis to belly button = girl, all the way up to your ribs = boy): boy

Chinese Gender Chart: girl

Acne (more = girl, less = boy): no change in acne, so…?

Morning sickness (bad = girl, mild or nonexistant = boy):

Side you sleep on (right = girl, left = boy): girl

Hands (soft = girl, dry = boy): neither

Cravings (sweet = girl, salty/savory = boy): craved both!

Baby’s Heartrate (over 140 = girl, under 140 = boy): girl

Weight gain (spread all over = girl, just in the belly = boy): girl

Mother’s intuition (do you just have a feeling?): I officially guessed it’d be a girl in the delivery room before birth, but really I had no idea! 🙂

SadieBee:  I was nauseous with my boy and fine with my girl……  I had weight gain all over with my boy and just in the belly with my girl.

Linea Negra (pelvis to belly button = girl, all the way up to your ribs = boy):  <br />I am not sure.  Mine started out only to my belly button but eventually went on up.  so Boy?

Chinese Gender Chart:  GIRL<br />

Acne (more = girl, less = boy): BOY (no change?)<br />

Morning sickness (bad = girl, mild or nonexistant = boy): GIRL<br />

Side you sleep on (right = girl, left = boy):  GIRL<br />

Hands (soft = girl, dry = boy):  no change

Cravings (sweet = girl, salty/savory = boy): BOY<br />

Baby’s Heartrate (over 140 = girl, under 140 = boy): GIRL<br />

Weight gain (spread all over = girl, just in the belly = boy): not sure, mostly in my belly but definitely a little bit on my hips.   So boy?<br />

Mother’s intuition (do you just have a feeling?): GIRL<br />

<div style=”overflow: hidden; color: #000000; background-color: #ffffff; text-align: left; text-decoration: none;”>boy= 4</div>
<div style=”overflow: hidden; color: #000000; background-color: #ffffff; text-align: left; text-decoration: none;”>girl = 5</div>
<div style=”overflow: hidden; color: #000000; background-color: #ffffff; text-align: left; text-decoration: none;”> </div>
<div style=”overflow: hidden; color: #000000; background-color: #ffffff; text-align: left; text-decoration: none;”>I had a girl.  I believe the only one with any real accuracy is mothers intuition ;)</div>

We’re team green, so I’m getting anxious to know!! 🙂

Linea Negra (pelvis to belly button = girl, all the way up to your ribs = boy): I don’t have a linea negra…

Chinese Gender Chart: girl

Acne (more = girl, less = boy): I had breakouts on my chest and upper back and more facial acne towards the beginning of this pregnancy, haven’t noticed much now towards the middle/end..

Morning sickness (bad = girl, mild or nonexistant = boy): Nonexistant, so boy.

Side you sleep on (right = girl, left = boy): girl

Hands (soft = girl, dry = boy): girl

Cravings (sweet = girl, salty/savory = boy): girl

Baby’s Heartrate (over 140 = girl, under 140 = boy): Started out high in the 170’s, but now has settled down into the 140’s the last few appointments…

Weight gain (spread all over = girl, just in the belly = boy): girl – my weight gain is all over the place, I’ve gained 35 pounds at 32 weeks and still don’t have much of a belly!

Mother’s intuition (do you just have a feeling?): At the beginning I really had strong feelings that it’s a girl, but now I’m not so sure! I can’t wait until delivery day to find out!!

They were all correct for my boy except  the acne. I broke out really bad with my son. 

I think some do hold some truth n even if none of them do, I think it’s fun! 

How about If you have a v shape linE when u pull down your left eye skin?.they say that means Your having a girl. If no v then boy. Anyone look? Mine said boy. 

Also if the dad gains weight during pregnancy they say girl and if not then boy. Lol

almost all of the old wives tales said boy for me. My gut said boy. Everyone thought boy. 

I have a beautiful daughter 🙂
