Old Wives Tales

Lets check out some pregnancy old wives tales to see what I'm having...
 
1) Sleep Position
Pay attention to which way you lay down in bed tonight. If you prefer sleeping on your left side, you'll have a boy. Right side? You're pregnant with a girl.
I like both sides to be honest.  I prefer my right side, but I always end up on my left side.  I guess we'll call this even.
 
2) Upset Stomach
Little girls aren't always sweet. Extreme nausea means you are having a daughter.
I was nauseous for less than a week.  We'll put a point in the boy category.
 
3)Soft or Dry Hands
If your hands are dry during pregnancy, you are having a boy; soft—expect a girl.
My hands are always dry-- and they are still dry.  I guess this goes into the boy category.
 
4)Food Cravings
Your favorite pregnancy foods may tell you what sex the baby is. If you're craving citrus while pregnant, you're having a girl.
I'm not really craving anything, and certainly not citrus.  The fruits I love best are watermelon and strawberries.  Another one for the boy.
 
5) Adult Acne
If pregnancy hormones make your skin break out, expect a girl.
My skin SUCKED after I went off of the pill, but it's cleared up since becoming pregnant.  I guess this is another boy vote. 
 
6) Graceful or Clumsy Pregnancy
If you feel as though you're gliding through they day, you'll have a girl. Stumbling? It's a boy.
Dude, does the fact that I'm clumsy in regular and pregnancy life mean I'm having all boys? Another boy vote. I ran into the dog gate just this morning. 
 
7) Face Weight Gain
If your face gets fuller, it means you're having a girl.
I think that my face looks the same, but the secretary at work says it's wider.  Vote girl.
 
8) Sugar and Spice Food Cravings
Craving salt during pregnancy? Potato chips, pretzels, and popcorn means a boy is on the way. Need a little something sweet?
I crave more sweet then salty. Girl vote. 
 
9) Mood Changes
If you're experiencing pregnant mood-swings, expect a baby girl to arrive soon.
I'm not really a moody person and after consulting the hubs, I'm no more moody now than I was before. Vote boy.
 
10) High or Low Pregnant Belly
If you're carrying the baby low on your stomach, expect a boy. If it's high, you're having a girl.
I'm not showing very much, but what is showing appears low.  My mom told me (although she may be biased). Vote boy.
 
11) Baby Weight
If you're carrying baby in front, it's a boy. Is the baby weight spaced all around your middle?
It's hard to tell because I'm only about 13/14ish weeks.  I do think my ass and thighs have grown by a little bit.  Vote girl.
 
12) Pendulum Test
Dangle a chain with a charm over your palm. If it swings back and forth: boy. In a circle: girl.
This one is whack. When I held it up towards my chest it was a boy, but when I moved it lower, over my stomach it was all girl. I vote neither because it went both ways.
 
13) Model Your Hands
"Show me your hands." If you would hold your hands palms up it's a girl. Down? You're having a boy.'
I would show them palms up.  Vote girl.
 
14) Toddler Advice
Get baby advice from a nephew or friend's little boy. If a toddler boy shows interest in your belly, you'll have a girl. If he ignores you, it's a boy.
We don't know any toddler boys. Everyone we know with a young child has had a girl first and/or only has girls.  Vote neither.
 
15) Eat Garlic
Guess the baby's sex by eating garlic. If the smell seeps out of your pores it's a boy. If there's no scent it's a little girl.
I'm going with girl for this one. Garlic is one of my five main food groups and no one has commented on my scent. 
 
16) Key to Pregnancy
If you pick up a key by the round end, you're having a boy. If it's by the long end? A girl.
My key is on a keychain and I pick it up by the round end.  I guess boy.
 
17)Even and Odd Numbers
If your age and year of conception are both even or odd, it's girl. One even, one odd means a boy.
I'm 29 and conceived in 2011. That means a girl is coming. 
 
18) Baby's Heartbeat
If the baby's heart beats more than 150 times per minute, you're pregnant with a girl. Less than 150, it's a boy.
It's a girl at 162.
 
19) Stress Test
A child tends to be of the same sex as the parent who is less stressed at the time of conception.
I think I was more stressed at the time of conception because we had a puppy in the crate next to our bed that was whining and needed training.  John isn't fazed by that sort of thing (plus, he wanted/begged for the dog).  Vote boy.
 
20) Dream Meanings
If you dream about having a girl while pregnant, you will wind up having a boy and vice versa.
In my dreams I'm having a girl -- twin girls.  Vote boy.
 
21) Breast Size
If your right breast is larger than the left while pregnant, you are having a girl. If the left is larger, it's a baby boy.
They both look the same to me.
 
Total
Boy-10 Girl-7 Neither-3

I had a pretty even split with the old wives' tales being right or wrong. A few were flat out not true for me, like the heart rate. The first few ultrasounds I had done, my son's HR was 184ish. I'm also carrying pretty high. It's fun to try to guess until you know for sure! :)

Laurie said...

I wasn't sick at all with either of mine and they were both girls.
=)

Super Woman said...

Only one I know was true for me was the morning/ all day sickness. With my son I wasn't sick at all except some headaches. With my daughter I was sick all day long, puking at random times, having to call in sick for work kinda sick. Needless to say if we have another I sort of hope it's a boy.

KiraAJ said...

lol i chuckled at almost all of those :) to compare this pregnancy to the one with my son its like night and day i was violently ill with my son to the point where i had morning sickness 8months out of the 9-10 lol... theres only a couple i can say that i found to be true on the list is the heartbeat one ours was high from the start and has continued to beat fast and strong since :) the garlic one, i think my face has gotten a lil wider but then again ive complained the whole pregnancy about how fat ive gotten..(lol..loosing over a 100 pounds then falling oregnant can do that to ones brain...) I am carrying high up and i have noticed that all the girls around me who r preggers with girls r higher up. As for the rest they all go against what ive experienced with Aj :) she cant get enough spice when it comes to food everyone reckons shes gunna come out super red and burnt! lol from the amount of hot chilli peppers i eat..My biggest craving was most definately fresh fruits aka watermelon.... couldnt get enough... yes there were times i would eat the watrmelon with a chilli peper... i know gross LOL! Cant wait for ur guys scan when u will be able to confirm it for sure!! :) so excited for u both!

hotpants™ said...

My vote's on you having a boy. :)

Delightful yet...? said...

Wow!!

I have a new blog address...check me out if you like!

I look forward to hearing what it is...are you going to find out the sex early?

Sammi Leigh said...
