Tell your husband & mother in law that
Babies are God gift ,whether boy or girl it is immaterial. It should be normal & healthy. Never try to know the sex & abort ,all of you may be behind the bar.Disclaimer

Yes it is illegal here in india to determine the sex of your child.  But it is not your fault either that you MAY give birth to a girl child.  Your husband has a big role in sex determination.  He is the one that carries the X and Y chromosome that determines the sex of the child.  So why are you worried.  In fact you should tell him that he is the one who determines the sex of the child and if it is a girl it is not your fault and neither his acutally but if he were to blame he would have to blame himself.

There are many ways that you can enhance your chances of conceiving a girl or a boy.  Please serch on the net.

its ok, they say its illegal. if the stomach is full and utreus is bigger. means tummy is big enough. then its male baby. if tummy is small then its more towards the female baby.

A friend of mine is pregnant and she went to the doctors today find out the sex of the baby. only she didn t have the doctor tell her, she received a disk with the pictures on it and gave the disk to me. She is doing a gender reveal party. I am looking at the pictures now and I am confused. On one of the pictures labeled genitals it has an RT and an LT labled on the picture. Then a few Pictures down it is labeled Girl with a question mark. So does that mean she is having a girl? what does RT and LT stand for?
