Gender Determination

In the past there was no decision to be made: to find out the sex of the baby or not. There was simply no way for it to be done. The ultrasound machine wasn't invented until the 1960's so up until that time, if you wanted to know what you were having you simply had to wait for the big day or rely on the old wives tales for gender determination. There are the basic myths: if you're carrying low it's a girl, high it's a boy (I've also heard the reverse). If you're carrying any differently than your first child it's the opposite sex as the first child. If you put a needle or wedding ring on a string above your hand or belly and it moves in circles it's a girl or back and forth, it's a boy. If you're pregnant for the second time and your whole pregnancy is very different from your first pregnancy than it's the opposite sex as your first child. There are many other myths due to pregnancy but those are the only one's I can think of regarding gender determination.

I have described my pregnancy to many people and since my husband and I have chosen not to find out what the sex of our second baby is, most people feel the need to guess. The myths above are the most common one's used to determine what my child is and there is even one guy I work with who can not only tell you that you're pregnant, but he will also guess the gender of the baby, the due day and be right on point. I have yet to meet him since he works in a different office for the company, but that would be interesting.

In fact this whole process of gender determination is interesting to me. Why do we want to know so badly? Why it is so hard for us to keep this secret until the child is born, like we used to? Most women or couples in modern times have to know as soon as possible. In fact, of all the pregnant women that I know presently (and there are several) I was the only one who decided not to find out. The most common reply I received was: "Oh I could never do that! I had to know!" Why did she have to know?

I speculate that it's a comfort and control thing. If you know what you're having you can plan better and thus assert more control over the situation equaling more comfort for the mother to be. Plus, you get to tell everyone early and than they can plan what they buy for you more precisely. Comfort and Control for everyone. My family is very giving, but because no one knows what the baby is going to be, they have not purchased a single article of clothing for this new child (not even a plain white onesie!) simply because they don't know whether to buy the frilly pink dress or the miniature converse all-stars. They're uncomfortable buying clothes for a baby of undetermined gender.

It seems to confuse people nowadays when you don't do the gender determination thing. They expect you to find out. Some people are rather encouraging towards our decision however and they become our instant cheerleader when we tell them we're expecting a surprise. Most of these people are older than us, wiser than us, and they're glad we're doing things the "old fashioned way". It seems to give them hope that not all of the traditions of yesterday are gone or changed; that some things really will stay the same. It's a level of comfort for them and I'm happy to give it to them. I've learned to tell the two personalities apart and I look forward to the moment when I can tell the grandmother ahead of me in the checkout line that we've decided not to find out what we were having so we can be surprised. Her cheeky grin lifts my spirits every time. It's a moment of comfort for me. That's how I've come to see gender determination on both sides of the fence: as a level of comfort. No matter which way you go, you go with what is most comfortable to you.

    Fortune Baby Gender Predictor Reviews


    Thousands of happy moms around the world successfully used Fortunebaby gender prediction test. We are delighted to share their gender prediction reviews about their experience with Fortune Baby.

    I just wanted to add to the constant praise of your web site. We have 2 girls already. In August we found out that we were expecting again. We were so hoping for a boy! Well, we used your baby gender predictor test and it said we were due to have a boy. Still unbelieving we went to our ultrasound last week. To our surprise we are indeed expecting a boy. You were 100% correct. Thanks for all the fun!!

    Hi, I have been meaning to contact you guys for quite sometime but just haven't got around to it until a friend of mine mentioned that her and her husband are thinking about getting pregnant and I told her about you guys! After I convinced my husband for us to try one more time (we have 2 boys and I was DESPERATE for a girl), I found your website. I bought the test results and found out that my chances were slim to have a girl and if I was going to I need to do it in Feb. 2005! Well I went off the pill in Oct. 2004 after showing my husband your baby gender prediction test results, of course he doesn't believe in that stuff but hey! Anyway, I found out we were pregnant on March 27th, 2005! The first thing I did was got on your website and made sure it said girl, then I looked it see what the Chinese calendar had to say, it said BOY, so I was a little scared but still had that hope! Although we would have been happy with whatever we were given! So ultrasound time came along and I was so nervous, we had the whole family there (dad and big brothers). The baby was moving like crazy and the tech was having a really hard time getting the measurements she needed let alone get the sex of the baby. So then finally she thought she saw something, so she calls in another tech to confirm. At this point my husband was not in there because of there protocol to get what they need first. So she looks at me and says do you want to know now or wait until we get your husband in here....I didn't even think, I said I want to know NOW! So the words were....IT'S A GIRL!!! I couldn't believe it, I started crying on the table and both techs were crying too! My husband is still mad that I knew before him but I got to be the one to tell him and the big brothers!! So our little girl was born in November 2005 and she has totally completed our family in so many ways. Although people think I am crazy, I totally believe that little piece of paper that I printed off in 2004 that told me she was going to be a girl! And as for my friend, I am sending her your website address and if I have to purchase the results for her I will, that is how much I believe in this! Thanks for all your help and I don't know how you do it but it works!!

    Thank You FortuneBaby. You were correct in predicting the sex of my second little boy! I already had a feeling that it was a boy...but thought I would try your baby gender predictor test anyway. It was very fun and I can now say it was right. Thanks Again!

    Just wanted to add thanks !!! I did the test a couples weeks before my ultrasound and you were right!!!!! Then i had a 3D ultrasound just to be sure and still the same. I would recommend FortuneBaby to anyone.
