So..... there are about 100 Old Wives' Tales related to pregnancy (okay, maybe not 100, but a lot!). Specifically, how it relates to the baby's gender. I read a lot of these to try to guess the gender of the baby. So, prior to revealing our baby's gender, I thought I would list some of the ones I found. (I don't really have much faith in these, but it's fun to play along.)
Bad morning sickness: This is supposed to be a sign of a girl. Well, given the hospital trip, constant nausea for 13 weeks, and the prescription I needed to function some days, I'll say this one points to girl.
Skin: If you have a beautiful glow, it's a sign for a boy. Crazy breakouts is a sign for girls. I have to say, I have the worst acne of my life. So this on would be a sign for a girl.
Weight Gain: If you're gaining weight all over, girl. Just your stomach, boy. Hmmm.... this one is mostly just stomach, so I'll say boy.
Sweet or Sour Food Cravings: Sweet cravings indicate girl; sour indicates boy. I definitely crave sweets way more than sour foods. Another one for girl.
Baby's Heartbeat: Heartbeat of 140 or above is for girl. Heartbeat below 140 is for boy. My heartbeats when measured have ranged from 156 - 179. So this one for girl.
Face - getting rounder?: If yes, it points to girl. My face is definitely rounder, so girl.
Chinese Gender Chart: This is based on the mother's age at conception and the month of conception. According to the chart, it's a girl. Supposedly, this one is 90% accurate.
Moodiness: Apparently, the extra female hormones make you moody if you are having a girl. I'm sad to say, I have been moodier. Girl.
What Side Do You Sleep On: Laying on your left side, boy. Laying on your right side, girl. I tend to prefer sleeping on my right side. Girl.
Mother's Intuition: Mother's are supposed to have a special intuition about this. My initial thoughts have been boy, boy, boy. So... boy.
Cold Feet: Your feet are colder if you're having a boy. If they're the same as usual, girl. My feet have been fine. So girl.
Headaches: Headaches are supposed to indicate boy. I've had lots (almost daily!) headaches. Boy!
According to these, I have a 9 out of 12 (or 75%) chance of having a girl! We'll see if it's right. :)
