Gender-prediction

15 Pregnancy Old Wives’ Tales

If you’re pregnant then you’ve probably experienced people trying to guess the sex of your baby, even if you aren’t interested in hearing it. If you’ve chosen not to find out the gender then you can bet your buck that everyone around you will have their opinion about the sex and you probably won’t hear the end of it until your bub is born.

So here are some of the most common old wives tales about pregnancy. Some are absurd but equally amusing so let us know if you can relate to any of them:

  1. If you’re carrying your baby low then you’re having a boy and if you’re carrying high you’re having a girl.
  2. Legend has it that if your baby’s heart rate is higher than 140 beats per minute you’re going to have a girl whereas if the heartbeat is slower you’ll be having a boy.
  3. If your looks deteriorate when you’re pregnant you’ll be having a girl because she’s stealing your beauty.
  4. If your wedding ring swings back and forth when you’re holding it above your belly  suspended on a piece of your hair, you’re having a girl.  If it swings round in circles you’ll be graced with a boy.
  5. If you’ve experienced heartburn all throughout your pregnancy it means your baby will be born with plenty of hair.
  6. If you’re experiencing more acne than you’re used to during pregnancy it means you’re having a girl.
  7. If you skin is soft you’re likely to be having a girl but if it’s dry you’re having a boy.
  8. If you’ve been suffering with morning sickness you’ll be having a girl and if you’ve been morning sickness free then it’s a boy!
  9. If you’ve been sleeping on your left side at night you’ll be having a boy and if you prefer the right side you better start buying pink.
  10. If you find yourself reaching for your socks at night time because of cold feet, you’re having a boy.
  11. If you’ve been suffering with lots of headaches you’re having a boy.
  12. If you’re feeling moodier than usual then you’re having a girl.
  13. If your locks are glossy and thick then you’re having a boy but if your hair is dull and brittle you’ll be having a girl.
  14. If the hair on your legs is growing faster than it was pre-pregnancy then you’re having a boy.
  15. If the linea nigra (dark line on your belly) stretches from the pubic area to your belly button it’s a girl and if it stretches all the way up to your ribcage it’s a boy.

Chinese Pregnancy Calendar

Interested in predicting your baby gender? Maybe you should try the ancient Chinese Pregnancy Calendar.

The birth chart predicts your baby’s sex based on your Chinese lunar age at the time you conceived and the Chinese lunar month in which you became pregnant.

The chart is based on the Chinese Lunar Calendar, and although there’s no scientific proof that the gender predictor works, it’s been used for hundreds, perhaps thousands, of years as a pre-conception gender predicting tool.

To find out your Chinese lunar age, enter your birth date here.

Then all you need to do is locate your Chinese lunar age on the chart below (listed vertically) and match it with the month you conceived (listed horizontally).

In months to come you can finally find out whether the Chinese Pregnancy Calendar really does have the powers it’s renowned for.

Of course, whether you’re predicted to have a boy or girl, it’s got a 50 percent chance of being correct!
