I get a kick out of all the pregnancy wives tales.  I was told by so many people that I was having a girl because I was sicker than I had been before.  I was also told that because I craved orange juice, I was definately having a girl.  Then there is how you carry your baby: low=boy, high=girl.  Or, if you crave sweets, you are having a girl, if your crave sour/salty, you are having a boy.  And so many more…

I think my favorite wives tale is the Chinese Gender Prediction Chart.  Have you ever seen it?  I find it to be quite accurate for my kids.  There are several different versions of this chart floating around out there.  For sake of uniformity, we will use this one I swiped from the web and their directions. 

Here's how it works, find the age of the mother at the time of conception, then go across to the month the baby was conceived, if you land on a B, the baby was, or should be a boy, if you land on a G, its a girl.  For instance, Elijah was born on in July, 2005, so I was 24 when he was conceived Elijah in October, chart predicts a boy.

Screen shot 2010-10-19 at 10.43.20 AM This chart is accurate with both of my boys.  For my 3rd, it predicts a boy, but I was told with 100% certainty we are having a girl, no wives tales are perfect!  So for me, the chart is 66% accurate.

Ok, your turn to weigh in, is this chart accurate for you?  I can't wait to see these results.
