For those who know the gender..... what wives tales have seemed to hold up for you?

For those unknown.... what are the wives tales saying for you?

I know I am having a girl and these hold true...

dull colored urine unless I am taking my B complex vitamin
Carrying high up, but I feel that is because she is breech, not girl
craving more sweets and fruits
ring test was right
Baking soda test was right
Had horrible acne at first, but that has gotten better now
Don't have to shave as much. Like once a week now.. woo-hoo
Her heart rate has always been in the 150's or higher

So far for me everything is all a mix so I don't have anything to sway either way.

I would say most of them are favoring a boy but who knows.

I'm having a boy. I found this list of wives tales online. Sorry it's so long! Feel free to copy your answers into it! I highlighted my answers in bold, and if it was neither, I left it unchanged.

1) Baby’s Heart Rate:
a. BOY= Under 140
b. GIRL= Over 140

2) Needle or Wedding Ring (Take needle or thread and tie to a thread. Hold over belly while laying down):
a. BOY= Swings Back & Forth
b. GIRL= Swings Circular

3) How are you Carrying:
a. BOY= Low
b. GIRL= High

4) Where are you carrying:
a. BOY= Front (like Basketball)
b. GIRL= Middle (like Watermelon)

5) Cravings:
a. BOY= Spicy/Salty & Meats
b. GIRL= Sweets & Fruits

6) Morning Sickness:
a. BOY= None/Little
b. GIRL= Most/Lot

7) Drano (do only after 4th month and do it OUTSIDE. Combine 2 TBS of Crystal Drano in a LARGE glass to 2-3 oz of the mother’s urine. There will be a large chemical reaction. When it stops look within 10-15 seconds to read):
a. BOY=Gets darker then turns to brown
b. GIRL= No Color Change

8) Hands:
a. BOY= Dry
b. GIRL= Soft

9) Feet:
a. BOY= Colder
b. GIRL= No Different

10) Chest:
a. BOY= Not Changed Much
b. GIRL= Dramatic Development

11) Hair on Legs:
a. BOY= Growing faster
b. GIRL= Same Rate of growth

12) Pillow Position:
a. BOY= Faces North
b. GIRL= Faces South

13) Addition (add month when conceived + Your age at conception):
a. BOY= Even Number
b. GIRL= Odd Number

14) Dad’s Weight (I don’t even know how this could work):
a. BOY= Puts on Weight
b. GIRL= Doesn’t gain

15) Urine Color:
a. BOY= Bright Yellow
b. GIRL= Dull Yellow

16) Breasts (Assumes you were equal before):
a. BOY= Right larger than left or equal
b. GIRL= Left is larger than right

17) Skin on Face:
a. BOY= Normal
b. GIRL= Breakout more than usual

18) Attitude:
a. BOY= Same
b. GIRL= Moodier

19) Sleep Position:
a. BOY= Left
b. GIRL= Right

20) Previous Child’s First Word:
a. BOY= Dada
b. GIRL= Mama

21) Balance:
a. BOY= Clumsy
b. GIRL= Graceful

22) Weight Gain in Face:
a. BOY= No Change
b. GIRL= Gain

23) Nipples:
a. BOY= Darker
b. GIRL= No Change/Lighter

24) Key (Drop a key and pick it up): **I skipped this one**
a. BOY= Thick end
b. GIRL= Thin End

25) Eyes (look at left eye):
a. BOY= didn't indicate
b. GIRL= Look at white part under eye. If vein looks like a V or branches

I pretty much dont pay attention to them anymore. I should have 2 girls already just by morning sickness and acne. And I thought pretty much everyone's boobs got larger and their nipples got darker.
