Just out of curiousity?

Chinese gender test, pendant above tummy, shape of bump etc?

Chinese one worked for me and all three pregnant friends - weird!

Wow! Think I'll be trying that one out now Wait4nothing, didn't find out the sex and really wishing I did!

Chinese gender guessed both of mine correctly!

Chinese gender was right with my first, will find out if either with this one next week smile pendant was wrong as was shape of tummy with the first so I haven't paid attention to those tales this time

The pendant worked for me, though I suppose it had a 50% chance of doing so!

Chinese gender test and pendant both got it wrong!

Shape of the bump got mine, everyone kept telling me I looked like I was carrying a girl hmm I didn't know it was a thing but I was indeed carrying a girl!

We never did any of those. I never wanted to know the sex anyway. I loved the surprise

Chinese gender prediction correct for me and 4 colleagues.
Also my cravings matched up with old wives tails each time.

Morning sickness being horrendous, her "stealing my beauty" (horrendous acne, hair looking flat and lack all of the time) and craving sweet stuff!

1st time round cravings, wedding ring and position of bump correctly showed boy. This time round everything points to a girl... scan showed another boy!
