Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

You can never be sure when it comes to those gender predictions,the only way to be sure is to have an ultrasound.However, the chinese thing was right with both caitlyn and this baby.
The only way to know for sure is to have an ultrasound, which means waiting until you're about 20 weeks along. That said, the Chinese Lunar calendar was right for all three of my kids. But, I had to find one that calculates the lunar age in order for it to be right. Just going by the chart didn't give me accurate results.
I actually did the needle on the string and being the nonbeliever I am, I did it multiple times and each time got the same result. The first time it is unclear which makes me nervous because I'm in line to have twins but the end results are always the same. It can be quite fun to try quizzes and other old wives tales in guessing the babies gender but try not to get your hopes up at the same time. The needle trick worked for my father (who does not believe in things like that) but it is best to wait for the ultrasound. Believe me, I know how hard it can be to wait but it's the only way to be 100% certain.Good luck with your pregnancy!
