Mr. G and I aren't finding out early if our baby is a boy or a girl - we're happy to wait until the baby is born. Of course I've heard a lot of predictions (adamant predictions!) so I thought I'd go through some old wives' tales for fun.
Morning sickness - nausea = girl, little/no nausea = boy
For me: on/off nausea depending on the day = girl
Chinese Gender Chart - a chart matching your age and month of conception
For me: girl
Mayan Gender Prediction - add the year of conception and the mother's age. Even number = girl, odd number = boy
For me: girl
Baby's heart rate - over 140 bpm = girl, under 140 bpm = boy
For me: the baby's had a range of heartbeats, so inconclusive! Besides, our midwife said the heartbeat gradually slows down over the course of the pregnancy anyway.
Season of conception - winter = girl, summer = boy, spring and fall = equal chance
For me: conceived in the winter = girl
Cravings - craving sweet = girl, craving sour/salty = boy
For me: I couldn't stand anything sweet at first, but sour/salty have been tasty all along = boy
Skin - acne = girl, clear skin = boy
For me: a good amount of pimples/blemishes = girl
Final Tally: Girl: 5 Boy: 1 Inconclusive: 1
Leaning heavily toward girl! Anyone want to add their guess? Would you/did you find out the gender of your baby before it was born?
