Boy or Girl?

We're going to be finding out the gender of #2 in the next few weeks. Before then I thought it would be fun to see what y'all think we're having.

1 - Chinese Gender Calendar- GIRL
According to my lunar age I was 24 and concieved in the 10th month.

2 - Even and Odd Test - GIRL
(odd, odd or even, even = girl .. odd,even = boy)
{this is hard because I, like most people, don't know an exact conception date}

3 - Ring Test - GIRL
But, with Kaidence it always moved in a straight line-which is the symbol for boy. Maybe I'm just backwards-ha!

4 - Old Wives Tale Test - BOY
{found online}

5 - Cravings - BOY
I'm really into sour candy, icees, spicy food, and red meat.

6 - Heart Rate - BOY
157 BPM - All the online sources had anything over 160 is a girl. Close to 160, but not quite

So, we've got a 50% chance for a boy & 50% chance for a girl ;)

Any other fun tests or wives tales I should do before the big ultrasound?
