So we just thought that we would post about the best way to determine what gender your child is.
Ring and String Method: First off you have to find a first grade teacher that is part of a burly motorcycle gang (we mainly just ride to eat; "Live to ride, ride to live") to perform this one. So the version that we have heard is you take a ring and suspend it on a piece of thread over the mother-to-be's stomach. If the ring swings in a circular fashion it will be a girl. If it goes in a relatively straight line, it is boy. The ring didn't seem to go in any particular direction, but according to Steve it will be a boy.
Consult the Chinese Lunar Conception Calendar: Google this one. You have to figure out when the baby was conceived along with using the mother's lunar birth date and it gives you the formula. Our result was it will be a boy.
Heart Beat: If the heart beat is above 150 beats per minute it is supposed to be a girl. Our baby's heart rate is at or above 150, so the result is a baby girl.
Ask Your Religious Leader: One of the bishopric members at church is dead set that we are having a girl. He claims he has never been wrong with his predictions. He informed us of this while we were shopping at Target and ran into him.
Ultrasound: Get an ultrasound. Ask the person running the ultrasound machine to try to zoom in between the legs and give you their best guess as to what gender you are having. Two different machines and two different ultrasound pilots both say boy.
But the most effective method is,
Ask Your 19 Month Old Niece: We asked our 19 month old niece "what's your cousin's name?" She would consistently say "Dan" and then run off to go play. The funniest part about this method is when you try to explain that there is a baby in Natalie's tummy to her. She got a bewildered look on her face then it turned quizzical as she lifted Natalie's shirt to try to look in through Nat's belly button. I don't think she believed us that there is a baby in there.
So of these 6 methods it looks like the ring and string, Chinese calendar, ultrasound, and ask a little kid methods seem to be accurate. But we won't know for sure until the first part of October.
