Maternal Pulse Indication of Gender?

Hi mamas, I had a visit with my midwife yesterday about a concern I was having and anyways I was saying how the morning sickness earlier this pregnancy was less than with DS and very similar to what I had with DD (actually a lot of the symptoms and the pregnancy itself this time are very similar to my pregnancy with DD). Anyways she felt my pulse and said that based on my pulse it was indicating girl. I forgot to ask what exactly the difference was but was wondering if any of you mamas had any experience or knowledge about this. We are having our 20 week sono a week from tomorrow so should know soon, I'm just curious right now what others have found about this method of guessing gender

Update with gender in post #9

This is interesting. I will be 7 weeks on Wednesday, and would be curious to know this as well. I've debated on getting those gender kits from Walgreens, but don't want to spend $40 on something that doesn't work, lol.

My dr. said the pulse was an old wives' tale. I said really? He said, well, they're right 50% of the time!

GL on your u/s.

Thank you and while I know it's not a sure thing by any means our midwife has delivered thousands of babies and has seen a pattern so I'm thinking there might be someone else that has seen a pattern as well
