Boy or Girl?

When I was pregnant with Hadley, I remember anxiously counting down the weeks until we found out the gender.  This time, it has seriously snuck up on me and it’s TOMORROW!  I blogged about what the old wives’ tales predicted last time and thought I would do the same this time around so we can see if they’re right (again). 
  • Baby’s heart rate:  If the HR is >140, then it’s a girl; if it’s <140; it’s a boy
    • = GIRL
  • Acne: If your skin gets worse during the pregnancy, it’s a girl; if it stays the same or gets better, it’s a boy
    • = GIRL
  • Maternal Grandmother: If the maternal grandmother has gray hair it’s a boy; if she doesn’t (whether natural or dyed) it’s a girl
    • =GIRL
  • Sum of the mother’s age + the month conceived: Odd = girl; even = boy
    • =BOY
  • Hair on legs:  If the hair on your legs grows faster it’s a boy; if it stays the same or stops it’s a girl
    • = GIRL
  • Carrying: If you’re carrying low and all in front it’s a boy; high and wide = girl
    • This one is a little hard to tell so far and I really am not a good judge so we’re just going to leave this one off this time
  • Feet:  If they are colder than usual it’s a boy; normal or warmer it’s a girl
    • = BOY (although they are now basically back to normal, my first trimester they were definitely colder than usual)
  • Morning Sickness:  If you had it = girl, if you didn’t = boy
    • = GIRL
  • Chinese Gender Prediction: predicts based on the mother’s age (you are supposed to calculate your ‘lunar age’ and I have no idea how to do that.  Probably why I can’t get similar results on them) and the conception month. 
    • If I go with my regular age, the charts say BOY
    • If I go with what some pages calculate to be my “lunar age”, then the charts say GIRL
    • Here’s the one that calculates those things for you - http://www.babycenter.com/chinese-gender-predictor – and it says: GIRL
TOTAL:
Boy= 2 out of 8
Girl= 6 out of 8

So, according to the wives’ tales, we’re having a girl!  What do you think?!
Pin It!
