What Did You Try to Predict Your Baby’s Gender?
Most women are able to find out their baby’s gender during their 20 week ultrasound, but before then it’s fun to let people guess what you are having based on all the old wives tales.
Sometimes the predictions are right and sometimes, well, like with everything else in life it’s just a guessing game!
Carrying High or Low – If you are carrying your baby high, it’s a girl. If you are carrying low, it’s a boy.
Cravings – If you are craving salty foods while pregnant, it’s a boy. Craving sweets means you are having a girl.
Chinese Gender Chart – You can find this online and by looking up your age and month of conception predict the baby’s gender. Surprisingly this method is the most accurate for most.
Even or Odd – The Mayans combine the mother’s age at conception and the year of conception. If the result is an even number, it’s a girl. If the result is an odd number, it’s a boy.
Morning Sickness – They say that if you have morning sickness that lasts longer than the first trimester, you are probably pregnant with a girl.
Heartbeat Test – If your baby’s heartbeat is 140 beats-per-minute or above, it’s a girl. Below 140, a boy.
Acne – Acne is caused by fluctuating hormones during pregnancy, but some believe that it is also a sign that you are having a girl.
The Ring Test – You hang a ring from a string over your belly. If the ring swings back and forth, it’s a girl. If it swings in a circle, you are carrying a boy.
The Key Test – Ask the pregnant woman to pick up a key. If she picks the key up by the narrow end, it’s a girl. If she picks up the key by the rounded top, it’s a boy.
