I thought it would be fun to record our gender predictions and see how accurate/inaccurate they are in 7 months time ;p I'll start off...

Baby's heart beat - 138 - boy
Chinese gender predictor - boy
confirmed by U/S It's a girl!

If anyone wants to pee on drano, grains or do the wedding ring pendulum trick (or any others you may of heard of) please go for it!

I used these 2 sites for my predictions
http://www.huggies.com.au/pregnancy/early-...baby-heart-rate
http://www.babycenter.com/chinese-gender-predictor

These are not science based or factual tests, just a bit of fun if you would like to join in original.gif

Chinese gender chart says boy - although it also says the one in my sig is a girl wink.gif
Heart rate @ 6 weeks and 1 day = 118, which indicates boy apparently!

I used one of those gender maker pee stick gender tests and it came up girl. The heart rate prediction says girl, the chinese acupuncture gender test says boy and the chinese calender prediction says boy. Not sure how accurate any of the prediction tests are. I guess only time will tell...

Just wanted to say your new sig looks great.
Also, between the two of us, and 6 boys, surely at least 1 of the three jelly bean is a girl..........right?

For me -

Heart rate at 8 weeks was 178 -  babygirl.gif
Chinese Gender Chart -  babygirl.gif
My thoughts - babygirl.gif

Having said this, the gender chart said girl for both my previous children (who are a girl and a boy) and all my pregnancies have had high heart rates at the beginning of pregnancy.

Heart rate was 169 which means girl.
Chinese gender predictor says girl.
I think girl too, although before getting pregnant I always thought if I had a third it would be a boy, lol.

Heart rate (161bpm) = Girl
Chinese Gender Predictor = Girl
My thoughts = Girl
