What will the wive’s say?

Tracey over at My Sweet T compiled all of the gender wive’s tales to determine if she is having a boy or girl. Of course she had a tie, and I bet I will too … let’s see!

If the heart rate is under 140 you’ll have a boy.
I believe our last appointment was 154 … so, it’s close, but GIRL

If you are carrying all your weight out front its a girl, if your weight is around your hips and bottom it’s a boy.
Folks have been saying I don’t even look preggo from behind, so GIRL

If your bump is low it’s a boy if your bump is up higher it’s a girl.
It’s high … like in my ribs high, so GIRL

If the baby is very active it’s a boy.
Pretty calm baby thus far, just in the last week I have started to notice some definite jabs, so GIRL

If you’re craving sweets it’s a girl, if you’re craving salt you’re having a boy.
I am a sweet tooth, another tally for GIRL

If daddy is gaining weight along with mommy it’s a girl.
Daddy is losing weight … 25 pounds since we found out we were expecting so that screams BOY

When picking up a single key, if she picks it up from the thin end, it’s a girl. If she picks up the key from the base it’s a boy.
This seems silly, but I tried and the outcome was BOY

If your face is colored in acne you’re having a girl. If you have clear beautiful skin you’ll have a boy.
Thank goodness my face has been clear, such a nice pregnancy gift … BOY

Do you sleep on your Right or your Left side? Right you’re having a girl, left you’re having a boy.
I find myself on my right side most often, must be since girls are always right :) GIRL

If you are puking all the time you’ll have a girl.
Not once ounce of puke this pregnancy, another thank goodness … BOY

If your hands are dry you’ll have a boy, if they are soft you’ll have a girl.
Soft as a baby’s bottom, GIRL

If you’re drinking lots of orange juice and other citrus you’re having a girl.
I had a mini orange juice kick, but now I have moved on to lemonade and apple cider … BOY

If you feel graceful during pregnancy you’re having a girl, but if you feel clumsy you’ll be having a boy.
No grace here … BOY

If you gain weight in your face you’re having a girl.
My Dad actually told me my face was looking skinny so, BOY

If you are especially moody you’ll be having a girl.
I think Dom would say I’m always especially moody … GIRL

The Mayan tale adds the mothers age at conception and the year of conception. If the result is an even number then mom is having a girl. If the result is an odd number then a boy is on the way!
23 + 2010 = 2033 … BOY

Pull down the skin under your left eye. If you see a “V” or “branches” in the white part you’ll have a girl.
How random, this test says GIRL

If you are the first born child, you will have what your mom had but starting with her second child. If you are the middle child, you will have what she had but starting with the third. If you are the last child you will have what your mother had in the exact order.
I’m the first born and my sister Katie came next so that would mean GIRL

If you eat the ends of bread, it’s a boy. If you eat the middle of the loaf, it’s a girl.
I’m fine with either, so I guess BOY

The Chinese Gender Chart claims to have an accuracy rate of over 90%. It is based on how old the mother is at conception and the month that she conceived.
The Chinese dubbed us parents of a BOY

You are having a girl if your beauty disappears during pregnancy. It is said that the girl “steals” the mother’s beauty. If you think that pregnancy has never made you look more beautiful, you might just be having a little boy.
I have that pregnancy glow so I would say BOY

If you have dreams that you are having a boy, you will have a girl. If you dream about having a girl, it will be a boy. Dreams show the opposite of what you are having.
My two baby related dreams were about an alligator (I kept yelling, “Does it have teeth?”) and a baby girl … which would mean we are having a human BOY

When a pregnant woman craves meat and cheese, count on a boy.
Most of my cravings have been for fruits, that would mean GIRL

Are your feet colder now that you are pregnant? If so, you just might be having a boy. If your feet have stayed the same before pregnancy and during, you’re having a little girl.
The same … GIRL

If you are having headaches, you might be carrying a boy.
Luckily none … GIRL

It is said that when you can only think of specific names for a boy or a girl, you will have that particularly baby.
We are set on a girl name, still no luck (or agreement) on boy names … I guess our GIRL Jemma is on the way!

That puts us at 14 for a GIRL and 10 for a BOY.
Did any of these wive’s tales prove true with your pregnancy?

    Wasn't this so much fun to fill out?? What I really really want to know is if that Chinese Gender Predictor actually has a success rate of 90%, because if it does then we are both having boys!! When will you find out?????

    We chose not to find out the gender so we won't know until October. Only God and the ultrasound tech know right now :)I have no idea how I've kept the patience to do this. It was really important to Dominic and to be honest it has turned out to be pretty fun. We'll know for sure come October!
