So, if I read this right, you would use the mother's age at the expected birth (9 months from conception)? If that's the case, then we're going to have a boy (yay!). Of course, all I REALLY care about is 10 fingers and ten toes! (But I really want a boy!) We already have enough estrogen in the house. ;)

You can NEVER have too much estrogen. Too much testosterone on the other hand... :eek: (Wouldn't want to have a bath in THAT tub..)

I wouldn't get your hopes up though.. I mean 50/50 chance that the "horoscope" is right, right?

I know, it would have been true for Judith. She too was conceived in March. I found a due date calculator and this one "should" be due December 13th, only 2 weeks before Judith turns one........

Hmmm....right for both of mine.

I had heard that it has more to do with the stage of your cycle (location of your egg). Apparently, the "male" sperm are fast swimmers but have no stamina, and the "female" sperm are slow and steady. If the egg is still fairly high (early in your cycle) when conception occurs, you will have a girl, because all the "male" sperm fizzle out early on in the trek, while the "female" sperm will swim all the way. Whereas if you conceived late in your cycle, the "male" sperm get there quicker and so you'll have a boy. This was also correct for both of mine. :)

Anyone else visualizing the tortoise and the hare running along the falopian tube?? Just me? I guess I should have kept that to myself...

I looked at that calendar for 3 of my friends babies which they just had in the last 5 months and it was wrong on all 3. I dont know how new the calendar is but I know I was made in October :) and my mom was 27, that would make me a boy, but last time i check I was a girl :)

But how old was your mom when you were born? I think that's what they mean by lunar age

I am just hoping we do have a boy, so everyone keep their fingers crossed for the next few months, until we know.........

You just have to go to a lot of sports events, scratch yourself and maybe go to a couple of strip clubs... Get into the man mood... :)
