In one day we will (hopefully) find out if our new addition will be a boy or a girl!
In honor of that I thought I would run down a few of the old wive’s tells for gender prediction to see if they come true:
Carrying High or Low
After much debate, Scott has decided that I am carrying Low. I think high, my ribs are getting HUGE.. Ummm, we are Undecided on this one.
Carrying Front or Around
I think I am all out front, so far. Boy
Once again I think this one falls into the undecided category. I could not survive without San Pellegrino Limonata drink! Which I would think would fall in to the sour category. But a day without chocolate sounds unreasonable! Undecided.
Food Cravings- Part 2
Meat and Cheese= Boy
I did not want to eat meat early on. Now I eat it but don’t really care. Funny was the one meat I did want was Hot Dogs! Gross and strange. But I did love smoothies and still wake up in the night thinking about Grapefruit. I am going with Girl on this one.
Husband Weight Gain
Doesn’t Gain Weight= Boy
Does Gain Weight= Girl
This is not fair, Scott can eat more than anyone I know and weight less than his wife! He has not gained weight so the answer to this one is BOY.
Baby’s Heart Rate
139 bpm or below= Boy
140 bpm or above= Girl
Always above 140 beats per minute. Girl.
Chinese Gender Chart
Says it a Girl.
Not as dramatic= Boy
Dramatic Change= Girl
I am pretty sure this is where all my weight gain has gone! Girl.
Look out Bigfoot= Boy
Same growth= Girl
Same. And thank god, I hate shaving my legs. Girl.
Increase coldness= Boy
Same = Girl
It is winter so this one is hard to tell. But I am going to go with the same since I haven’t really thought or noticed cold feet. Girl.
Not so much= Boy
Where is the porcelain god= Girl
I felt like complete and total crap my first tri. I felt like I had gone on a two day drinking binger, then came down with the flu, then came down with mono. I didn’t throw up but I did dry heave all the time. I am going with Girl on this one.
No change= Girl
I think I am too early in the pregnancy for this one. But so far no nose changes! Undecided.
According to the results we have a 60% chance of having a girl.
Have more wives tales I should compare myself against? Post them below and I will let you know how I compare!
