Boy or Girl?

I think most of you know by now that I'm pregnant. I'm about 12 weeks and we had our first doctors appointment to hear the heart beat. It is amazing and I love hearing!
Before going to the appointment 90% of our friends have been predicting a boy. I don't know why. Maybe because we already have a precious little girl, but it made me start thinking about all the gender predictions/myths out there so I wanted to know your thoughts.

For example, the heartbeat today was 172 which is fast. Typically, a fast heart beat leans towards a girl, BUT my brother and my nephews all had really fast heart beats the first time, so I'm not convinced. Plus a few years back before babies Tom and I did this ring test with our friends (totally just for fun) and it "predicted" we'd have a girl then a boy. Well, so far it's right.

BUT what do you think? There are so many gender prediction tests out there. I know my best friend told me that if your hair (leg hair, hair on your head, eyebrows, etc) grows super fast then you're probably having a boy because it's triggered by testosterone. Well, guess what she's having a BOY.

I know there are a million more tests like that, so please share and let me know if they were right with you! :)

We don't care honestly either way. We just want a healthy baby!


  1. So are you saying you don't believe in the ring test 100%? lol. Wow, that seems like so long ago. So far mine is right too :) I can't wait to find out what the next baby Yaz will be.

  2. So, there is another way of "predicting" what you are having ... you take your age at the time of conception + the month of your last period. Even # it's a girl, odd it's a boy. Worked for 9/10 people that I know :)

  3. Predicting heartbeats or hairs can not predict your gender. there is some natural test which can help you a lot and intelligender is one of the finest test which provide accurate result.
