I don't put any faith into old wives tales because sometimes you can read on one site that if your carrying low its a boy and then on another, it says if you're carrying low it's a girl. Same thing with the heart rate. I think you can just use it for fun and laughs but know that's all there is to it.
Some people look at me and tell me I'm carrying a boy, others say girl. Even though my OBGYN was pretty convinced that I'm carrying a girl, I just say we'll wait and see. Maybe at the 32w u/s, she'll give me a clear shot and I can say for sure one way or the other.
They have done research on many of the wives tales and only one KIND OF showed true. And that was how many days prior to Conception you had sex (24-48 hrs it was a boy, over 48hrs-girl.....but thats only in the high 60% category for correct)
My grandmother can look at a pregnant women and say what she's having with 100% accurately! She says if you can't tell the women is pregnant when looking at her from the back (ie the women facing away from you) then it's a girl. I've tried the same technique and it's never right for me!
