The time is almost here we find out the sex of our baby next Wednesday- don’t worry I will most definitely announce it on here. I am not doing a gender reveal party or anything, I like the idea of just Matt and I being alone and finding out together. Something special about just the two of us sharing that moment. I thought it would be fun to test out some of the old wives tales and see how accurate and true they are. I don’t honestly believe any of this stuff but it will be interesting to see what is accurate and what is not.
The Chinese calendar determines the sex of your baby by entering your due date and age you were when you conceived. I have no idea how this can be accurate and even the site says it is a 50/50 chance (duh).
The Chinese chart says you’re having a GIRL!
If you have never done the ring test, you take a strand of your hair and place your wedding band on it. Have a friend hold it very still over your belly. If it goes in circles it is a girl, if it goes back and forth it means boy. It is kind of crazy how violent the ring moves one way or the other. Oddly enough I tried this not pregnant and it did not do anything so it must have to do with hormones or something.
Test said GIRL
BAKING SODA TEST:
You put baking soda in a cup and pee in it. Supposedly if the baking soda fizzles it is a boy, if it remains flat it is a girl. I had never heard of this one before but tried it out, mine was pretty much completely flat, a white ring formed around it but no fizzing.
Test said GIRL
Supposedly the sicker you are the more likely it is a girl. I don’t believe this one at all because I have had several friends who have had boys that had bad morning sickness. With Sterling I had no morning sickness, this pregnancy I was very nauseous the whole first trimester. Never threw up but had a hard time eating, all food made me want to vomit.
If myth is true: GIRL
HOW YOU CARRY THE BABY:
If your belly hangs low (or in front), you’re having a boy. If it’s high (or wide in the middle), you’re having a girl.
According this I am carrying like its a BOY
If the baby’s heart beats faster than 140 beats per minute, it’s a girl.
Heartbeat at last visit was 145, right near cut-off
Test says GIRL
If you crave sweet things it is a girl, sour things a boy. I don’t really get this one. I honestly have had few cravings this pregnancy. Main difference between this pregnancy and with Sterling is I have wanted to eat healthier foods, I crave salads and fruit. With Sterling I ate junk the whole time, salads made me want to vomit. Also loved cheeseburgers while pregnant with Sterling and have not wanted one at all this time around. Not loving red meat.
BOY or GIRL who knows on this one
I know there is no way these can actually predict the gender and it is fun to try but I take no stock in the answers. I don’t really believe in this kind of stuff, I mean how accurate can it really be?? Anyone tried these and have success with these?
Humor me and take a vote boy or girl?
I will reveal next week.
Oh and I am also over at Cassie’s amazing blog Hi Sugarplum participating in her 20 questions series, while she is off on vacay! Check out my answers HERE!
