I tried all the old wives tales. Like peeing in a a cup with baking soda if it fizzes its a boy if its flat its a girl. Well everyting pointed to girl. But I'm having a BOY! So don't get too caught up in all that.

I did all the things and they were all wrong including the chinese calendar when I had my son. The only one that was right was the heart beat rate was consistent with boy. We'll see if it is this time though. I'm hoping for a girl!

Lurking from 3rd tri....

I did pretty much all of them except that one. I think its a 50/50 chance either way. One wives tale would point to boy one to girl. The one that we did that pointed to boy was the pee and baking soda it fizzed and we are having a boy! I think they were fun anways so enjoy them if you choose to do them but just dont run out and paint the nursery pink or blue lol.
