IVillage had this list of Old Wives Tales, ways to determine if I am having a boy or a girl. I know they mean nothing but I figured what the hey, it could be fun, right? 🙂 Those that apply to me will be in bold text. (Sorry some of these are a little…gross and personal. I deleted them.)

Ready or not, here we go!

It’s a boy if:
You didn’t experience
morning sickness in early pregnancy
Your baby’s heart rate is less than 140 beats per minute
You are carrying the extra weight out front
Your belly looks like a basketball
*deleted but didn’t apply to me*
You are carrying low
You are craving salty or sour foods
You are craving protein –>—-> meats and cheese
Your feet are colder than they were before pregnancy
The hair on your legs has grown faster during pregnancy
Your hands are very dry
Your pillow faces north when you sleep
Dad-to-be is gaining weight, right along with you (ssshhh, don’t tell him I told.)
Pregnancy has you looking better than ever
*deleted but didn’t apply to me*
Your nose is spreading
You hang your wedding ring over your belly and it moves in circles (haven’t tried it yet)
You are having headaches
You add your age at the time of conception and the number for the month you conceived and the sum is an even number (chinese method, which has already said it’s a girl – see the bottom of my page)


It’s a girl if:
You had morning sickness early in pregnancy
Your baby’s heart rate is at least 140 beats per minute
You are carrying the weight in your hips and rear
*deleted but didn’t apply to me*

Your hair develops red highlights
You are carrying high
Your belly looks like a watermelon
You are craving sweets
You are craving fruit
You crave orange juice
(not craving it so much as I can actually stand it for once)
You don’t look quite as good as normal during pregnancy
You are moodier than usual during pregnancy
Your face breaks out more than usual
You refuse to eat the heel of a loaf of bread

*deleted and applied to me*
Your pillow faces south when you sleep
*deleted and applied to me*
You hang your wedding ring over your belly and it moves from side to side (again, I haven’t tried this yet)
You add your age at the time of conception and the number for the month you conceived and the sum is an odd number (again see bottom of the page, been there done this – it says girl)

4 for a boy
10 for a girl

Woo Whoo! If only these weren’t so silly. lol
