The ancient Mayans developed a gender test which takes into account the year of conception and your age at the time you conceived. If both numbers are even/odd you will be having a little girl. For example, if a mother conceived in 2010 at the age of 24 she will be expecting a daughter. You would also be expecting a girl if you were 25 when you conceived in 2011. If one number is even and the other is odd you will be expecting a little boy. For instance, if you were 25 when you got pregnant in 2010 a little bundle of blue is on the way.
According to this predictor I will be welcoming another little boy into the household in about 25 weeks. I was 25 (odd) when I conceived our child in November of 2010 (even). This method of gender prediction was incorrect with my son, who I conceived in 2008 at the age of 24.
Heart Rate Gender Predictor
The heart rate prediction is really very simple. If the baby's heart rate beats 140bpm or faster, you are carrying a little girl. If it is slower than 140bmp, you are carrying a little boy. As far as I can gather from other mothers I have spoken to, this is another that is wrong more often than it is right. It was incorrect with my son, who never had a heart rate below 140 until the day I went into labor with him.
This time around the baby's heart rate was higher than Bubba's ever was at 189bpm at our 10 week ultrasound, but had dropped to around 120bpm when I was checked by doppler at 13 weeks 1 day. So, according to this predictor, I am welcoming a little girl and a little boy, though my 10 week ultrasound showed no sign of twins. I guess we'll have to wait and see what Baby Legs heart rate is at our next appointment.
That's all for now, but I promise to post some more at home predictors ASAP! Remember, send me some ideas if you know of any fun prediction methods I can use!
