Does anyone here have any myths of things you can do to "make" it a boy or a girl? I will be happy with either, but I'd really like a boy. So lemme know just so I can try? lol. Thanks everyone. (2 and a half months.)

wow I can't believe your already that far along. The only thing I know is that the moment you concieve the babies genetics and dna is starting to create your baby and that moment the s_x of the baby is determined. Strange but true. I had a dream that i was having a girl and did. So if you have any dreams of a s_x then that's probably what your going to have. Good luck,

Also your right about the heart beat um. I figured it this way if the heartbeat is between 120-140 then its a boy and if its between 140-160 then its a girl.

You cant make anything out of old wives tales! The onl ything that makes a baby boy/girl is the sperm ! The childs s_x is determined at conception ....Go ahead and try whatever non sense you'd like but wont give you what you want just by wishing for it. You have a 50% chance of having either ..>Good ODDS huh?

Yes Emma2 is right, scientifically explaining it, your eggs eatch contain and X chromosome and the sperm contain eithier a X or a Y. If you get XX then its a girl, if its XY its a boy but theres no way to tell which one you got or to make the chances for one or the other better, sorry...

Both my kids' heartbeat was up in the 150-160s and they are both boys. Also, I carried high both times. The guy controls the gender. And dreams are not usually a good indicator of what you are having...I dreamed I was pregnant with kittens, triplets, twins, and girls/boys. (No offense Corrine.)

OMG Mommy I dreamed I was pregnant with a litter of kittens the other night!! Thats so weird, Im glad Im not the only one.

I know all the genetics information, I just wanted to know if there were any of those old stupid things just to TELL or things that say you do. I mean I know that at the moment of conception the baby's s_x is chosen, I have taken too many cla__ses to know better lol. I just wanted to so I could have something fun to do during the day lol. Thanks for the information though! And yes Emma, I like the odds lol. The funny thing, is that I deamt I had a girl, but it was a boy, something weird like that, so I don't really know what to think. Like, the baby looked like a boy, but they said it was a girl, or something. But that's all I remember, and that I said as I held my baby, "You're so beautiful!" X_X!!!!! Meh I wish I had a more definite dream, but I haven't. I don't even know if that was the way it was around!
