I had an idea for a thread. One where we continually update with our symptoms, babies heartbeat, cravings, if we carry low/high, at home gender kits, etc. to see which of those old wives tales come true for us. For example, with time mine could end up being:

craving: sweets = girl
symptoms: lots of morning sickness= boy
carrying: low= boy
heartbeat: 170= girl
at home test: drano= boy
Ultrasound/birth confirmed: Boy!

Just an idea. I'd be happy to manage it if it sounds fun to everyone.

I think that sounds like a great idea. We could also put mother's intuition and father's intution on there to see if there's anything to that!

Sure! That could be interesting! I had always heard that lots of nausea meant a girl...so I guess we may not have heard all of the same wives tales, hehehe!
Thank you Jaydinsmum for my amazing siggy!

Yes, I'll have to research to make sure I get the myths right. My example was just pulled from my foggy memory.
