Child Sex determination

Post by manjg » Tue Oct 04, 2005 10:26 am

Some people claim that sex of child befor birth can be determined by observing certain characterstic of mother.

They say that if heart beat of woman during pregnancy is 120 then girl will take birth other wise boys etc.

Is it really true? :o

No, this is only a superstition. There may be such clues, but there is no way of knowing for sure except going to the doctor

During pregnancy? If you're talking about labor, the sex has already been determined. Otherwise I hope the mother's heartbeat isn't a constant 120 during the whole period of pregnancy.
