Chinese gender predictor said 93% chance of a girl....he is all boy. With Andrew all the same symptoms as Christopher, but low heartbeat, carried low, same gender prediction of girl and....another boy! I don't think I can count how many people told me I looked like I was having another boy this last time since "I was all belly and carrying right in the front." My doctors were convinced that it would be a boy since "boys tend to come in threes." The Chinese gender chart said boy...and I had a girl :)
Everyone wants to know if I felt any different or had any different symptoms this time around...not really. I carried the same way for Evangeline as I did with Andrew. I had the same back pain, heartburn and cravings as I did with both boys. The only thing that was different for me was that I had night sickness that was worse than morning sickness. Is that the magic gender predictor? I don't think so. I think every pregnancy and baby is different. Old wives' tales are just a bunch of nonsense that were created before ultrasounds or scientific methods existed. It really bothered/bothers me hearing them because some people put so much faith in them and tell you so matter-of-factually what your baby will be. I also think some of them are offensive as well (ones pertaining to the appearance of the mother).
I know I talked about this on facebook, but I'd love to hear some of the silly theories people were told when they were expecting! Were they correct? Also am I the only one that loves to run into people after the baby is born and tell them their predictions were wrong? :0
