Just found this and wondered if any of it was true for you? Particularly the hair growth.

(Baby was coy at the scan yesterday)

it says 60% girl for me and im having a girl.

debinaustria Tue 29-Jan-08 12:56:58

It's 60 for me too!!

I had a prediction of 60% girl, and was also predicted girl on the chinese gender prediction calendar. I was convinced myself that I was carrying a girl, but DS2 is now 7 weeks old!! grin

53% chance of a girl here. Scan very clearly showed a boy. Interesting to see what comes out.

Chinese gender prediction calendar worked for all 4 of mine .... pure coincidence I know.

Chinese Gender prediction calendar
Wedding ring dousing

All WRONG, DD is now a strapping 4.5 yr old DS

Good job I bought white baby clothes really

53% girl according to the questions but I had to guess on the heartbeat question and is there really a difference between a watermelon and a beachball??

We don't know whether we are having a pink or a blue one - left it as a surprise, so we'll see in a few weeks. Everyone keeps saying it's a girl though!

Ive just done the test and it says 69% girl, we are def having a girl had 3 different scans and a 4d scan xx

Mine said 60% chance of a girl, we found out at the 20 week scan that it is smile so correct here. Chinese predictor thingy was wrong though....And what's putting weight on your backside got to do with it hmm

Just did the test 60% chance of a boy. We haven't found out the sex yet might ask at 30week scan, but mothers intuition makes me think i'm carrying a boy so will be intresting to see!

60% girl for me, which is right as the scan revealed it is a girl. Chinese calender said girl too.

53% girl, chinese calendar says girl,completely different pregnancy than with DS but 20 week scan said boy. So I presume all these are wrong.

Twiglett Tue 29-Jan-08 16:16:37

oh barf .. it's in rhyming couplets

Mumblesmummy Tue 29-Jan-08 18:07:04

Mine was totally wrong, it said girl and I'm deffo having a boy.

brendar75 Thu 31-Jan-08 15:13:46

I answered this as for my last pg symptoms (when I had DS) and it came out as 53% girl - wrong! The Chinese gender predictor was wrong for him too. Hmm, maybe I can see what they say and know it's the opposite?

It says 73% Girl for me. And the scan was definate on it being a boy. The nurse said there was no mistaking 'him'. (31 weeks pregnant now)

The only thing that has worked for me and several people I know is the heartbeat one.

bigboydiditandranaway Mon 04-Feb-08 04:05:07

What's the heartbeat one then, i'm very intrigued(can't believe i'm eating toast at this time in the am or even up!)

the only thing that is consistent here is that it seems to be telling everyone - girl!

Niecie Mon 04-Feb-08 10:52:34

Boys have slower heartbeats (about 140ish) and girls are slightly faster at 150ish.

I did once read why there was a scientific reason why this might be case but still not sure if it isn't total hogwash though!

As I say, it worked for me and people I know. However, to be certain of my results I would have to have a girl and she would have to have a higher heart rate for me to be convinced and that is taking scientfic research a bit too far. wink

I did it out of memory and it says I was having a girl. DS is now 10 months old.
