Baby girl arrived on Thanksgiving day weighing 7lbs 6oz and measuring 20 inches
Ultrasound tech said she wasn't sure but thought the placenta was on the left, which means girl.
Heartbeat was 174, which means girl, but I think this is supposed to be taken into consideration after I am further along, because they are all supposed to be that high @ 9 weeks, 3 days when I had the ultrasound done.
The bumps chines gender predictor says boy, but my sister told me to use the ones where they use your chinese age.....apparently my chinese age is 33, not 31, which is how I old was when I conceived. All the other Chinese gender predictors are telling me girl.
I am eating all the sweets, give me all the sweet things.....normally I eat more salty things.....sweets supposedly means girl.
I told DH that even after all this, I still won't be surprised if its a boy.

I haven't tried these but maybe now that I know that we are having a boy I will try and see if any of these are true
Also my baby boy's heart rate is supposedly "girl" because it's in the 160's. I guess I won't be reading too much into that one anymore. Maybe they mean heart rates after 12 weeks?
FYI - Chinese gender chart is by Chinese Lunar Age - so you have to calculate that first (I think the one on the baby center does that, the bump you just have to know it). Not knowing this the first time around, bump said girl. Then I did it with Lunar age and it said boy - we had hb at about 140 with DS and he was a boy.
With this one, gender chart, heartbeat, wedding ring, etc. all pointed to girl. M21 says we're having a boy. I'm guessing a Y chromosome is more accurate so they were wrong for us!

But, for any given woman and pregnancy it's impossible to determine based on m/s.I had m/s with #1... she was a girl. M/S is more severe this time around... so we shall see...For #1, I also got both answers using Chinese predictor charts from the bump/baby center.

@ssstephanie214, the lunar age is calculated assuming you're already one years old at birth.
