Boy or Girl???

We will find out the gender tomorrow all together, but before we do, I thought it would be fun to go through all the old wives tales and other gender predictors to see how accurate they end up being.

This is the first time that we have done anything like this, and I have to say it is fun!


Heart rate - If it is above 140 it is supposed to predict a girl, below is a boy. The heartrate was 166 at the first appointment and 154 at the last one, so this goes for GIRL.

Cravings - If mom is craving salty food it is supposed to mean the baby is a boy. If she's craving sweets, it is supposed to be a girl. This one goes for BOY.

Morning Sickness - If mom is very nauseous, it's supposed to be a girl. If she's not too nauseous, it's a boy. This one predicts BOY.

Mood - If mom is moody, the baby is a girl. If she's happy, the baby is a boy. I'm going to say that I've been happy, though other people might answer differently! So, I'm calling this for BOY.

Sleeping - If mom is sleeping on her right side, it's a boy. If she's sleeping on her left, it's a girl. There's no option for if mom is sleeping on whichever side does not contain a five year old boy, but I'll go ahead and say right just because it is more comfortable. So, GIRL.

Headaches - If mom is having headaches, it's a boy. If not, it's a girl.  According to this, it's a GIRL.

Skin - If mom's skin is soft, it's a girl. If mom's skin is dry, it's a boy. All the way on this one for BOY.

Hair - If mom's hair is growing slower or it is thinning, it's a girl. If her hair is growing faster and thicker, it's a boy. Considering I could shave my legs three times a day and still look like a yeti...gonna go with BOY. (What??? It's true....)

How mom is carrying - If she is gaining weight everywhere, it's a girl. If it's all in front, it's a boy. Well, I haven't been able to hide the bump in front since about 8 weeks along, so BOY.

Mayan calendar - BOY.

Chinese calendar - GIRL.

The final tallies are......

     BOY                 GIRL
        7                        4

We'll let you all know!!!!
