With DD1 we were convinced we were having a boy, she was conceived bang on ovulation & my bump was very much to the front rather than across my hips. Only her fetal heartrate in the final trimester hinted she was female.
With DD2 I was convinced she was female from 16wks when she was largely laying transverse until I neared labour. Again her fetal heartrate backed my theory & proved right.
Chinese gender predictor right both times
Chinese predictor - wrong
Fetal heartbeat - too varied to be conclusive
Hubby's mate saying terrible sickness sign of girl - wrong
Bump started under my boobs, and carried in my back - wrong
My own instincts from conception - bang on, i knew he was a boy from the start!
In my opinion it's all an old wifes tale. I've got 3 boys and each pregnancy was different, I was convinced I was having a girl with my 2nd. My thought is as long as he/she is healthy then I'm happy, they're precious all the same xx
Everybody's experiences are very different and I don't see a pattern as to what gender we are carrying...I was craving for sour stuff and I got twin girls contrary to some other ladies....
