Fun Ways to Know If It Is A Boy or Girl

1. Carrying High or Low: Once you start to show, they say if you are carrying high, start buying pink, and low is blue!

2. Eating Bread: If you eat the ends of bread, it is a boy. Or if you skip the ends and eat the middle first it is a girl.

3. Baby’s heartbeat: When you get to hear your baby’s heartbeat if it 140 beats per minute or higher it is a girl. Anything under says it is a little boy.

4. Morning Sickness: If you experience a lot of morning sickness, signs point to a girl! Less to no morning sickness – boy!

5. Legs: If your legs put on some weight during pregnancy, it is a boy. If they stay lean and in shape, signs point to girl.

6. Mood: If you tend to be a bit more grumpy you are having a girl since you have extra hormones flowing through you. If you seem happy and more relaxed, it is a boy!

7. Your Beauty: It is said that if you are having a little prince you will look beautiful and radiant. Little girls steal beauty, so if you don’t look as pretty they say it is a little princess.

8. Sweets or Salty: Craving sweet, means a girl. Sour or salty mean a boy.

9. How you Hold a Key: Have the person who is pregnant grab a car key. If they grab the narrow part (key teeth) of the key first, it is a girl. If they pick up the round part at the back of the key, it’s a boy.

10. Dream of Gender: If you dream that you are having a boy it means it is a girl and vice versa.

11. Blemishes: If you find that you have more acne or breakouts, blame your girl. If your skin is clear it is a little boy!

12. Ring Test: Take your ring off, and tie it on a string. Hang it over your belly and if it swings in a circle, it is a Mr. If it goes back and forth it is a little miss.

13. Clumsy or Graceful: It is said that if you are graceful, you are having a girl. If you tend to be more clumsy, signs point to boy.

14. Toddler: If you have another child, and he shows interest in the mom, it is a girl. If your toddler is less interested it is a boy.

15. Ask To See Hands: If you ask the pregnant mom to be to see her hands, and she keeps her palms down it is a girl. If she shows her palms (facing up) it is a little boy.

16. Dad Gains Weight: If your significant other gains weight during your pregnancy, they say it is a little girl. If he doesn’t show signs of weight gain, it is a boy.

17. Craving Protein: If you are craving protein, they say you are having a boy. Think meat and nuts.

18. Urine: If you look at your urine, and it is bright yellow, they say boy. If it is a lighter color it is a girl. It is recommended to look at the first pee of the day.

19. Headaches: If you find that you have more headaches than before pregnancy, it is a little boy you are carrying.

20. Sleep on Which Side: If you tend to sleep more on your left side, it is said you are having a boy. Right side means it is a little girl.

I hope you have fun seeing which of these old wive’s tales are correct at predicting the sex of your baby.
