You hold the string and let the pencil point touch the wrist. No hands in belly. Someone else has to do it.

Re: The Old Wives Tales

All I have so far is comparing last time.

Pregnant with DS:
Chinese chart - girl
HB - 145-155 - boy
BAD acne last time - boy
zero sickness - boy

Pregnant with this bean:
Chinese chart - one said boy, one said girl
so far mild if any acne flare up - ?
been feeling sick for 3 weeks, but haven't thrown up - ?

First US is the 25th so I can see what the HB will be. Becker's was never higher than 155 to my recollection so if this one is fairly high I will probably guess girl, but I could be completely wrong.

what's this about the placenta? I'm curious. I go in for an ultrasound tomorrow.

Supposedly if the placenta is on the right, it's a boy; on the left, it's a girl. I think it has to be fairly early also as the placenta shifts and grows so much. Not sure what the cut-off would be.

Re: The Old Wives Tales

Yes, but if it's abdominal, it's inverse, so it's opposite from the pic.

Mine was barely on the boy side in my early ultrasound.
