15 Fun Ways To Predict Whether Its A Boy Or A Girl
I am sure you must be very very very happy(no doubt) after getting those two red lines…..yippee I am pregnant. So now, the guessing game is ON. And there will be many people to join in it… like your in-laws, friends and especially those gossip aunties next door. There are many old wives tales which will tell you whether you got a boy or a girl.
You must be more curious or excited to know what’s there in your little belly. So let’s not waste the time and know the top 15 weird and fun ways to know what’s in – whether a boy or a girl.
1. Carrying high or low
It’s said that when your belly is high, its a girl, and when your belly is low, then its a boy.
I was carrying low during my pregnancy and it was a boy. So I can say that this tale worked for me.
2. Heart rate
Many say that the speed of baby’s heartbeat tells you whether its a boy or a girl. So next time when you have an appointment for an ultrasound, note the heartbeats of your baby. If the heartbeat is above 140 bpm then its a girl and if it’s less than 140 bpm then its a boy.
My baby(Arhaan) had heartbeats less than 140 bpm. So this too worked for me.
3. Your Cravings
Till now you must be having cravings for many things. So tell me, whether you are craving for sweet or sour? Hmm…. If you are craving for sweet then you are expecting a baby girl and if you are craving for sour then its a boy.
Normally I like eating chocolates, cakes, and icecreams very much but during my pregnancy, I just hated eating chocolates. My husband knew that I like chocolates very much and once he bought one for me but believe me I didn’t eat that and it was shocking for my husband too.
4. Chinese Calender
Now, this is a very popular gender prediction method. It usually does the calculation by using the mother’s age and the month of conception and gives you the result if its boy or a girl.
As all moms try to find baby’s gender out of curiosity, even I did. And guess what!!! Even this worked well for me.
5. Mothers Pregnancy Complexion
Aahhhh…. Now, this is what I loved during my pregnancy. It is said that when you are carrying a boy, you become beautiful. I mean that your skin glows, no acne, your hair becomes full and shiny and lustrous and no hair fall. That is you become beautiful. And on the other hand, if you are carrying a girl, then definitely she is going to take all your beauty. You will have dark pigmentations and sometimes acne on your skin.
During my pregnancy, my skin and hair were so so beautiful – It was a boy for me.
6. Morning Sickness
If you are super sick in your 1st trimester then it is said that you are having a girl. When there is a high level of estrogen in your body, it results in morning sickness. I really don’t know why it is called MORNING sickness as it can be for the entire day as well or at any time of the day.
My experience was quite different in this case. I had a horrible sickness during my entire 1st trimester – vomits and nausea, that too for the entire day. Boom…. I had a baby boy and this went wrong in my case.
7. Ring On A String
This is very simple and weird too. You just need to tie your finger ring to a string. Lie down, hold the string and dangle it above your belly. Allow the ring to move without any interference. If the ring moves in back and forth ie; in pendulum style then it is a baby boy and if the ring moves in a circular motion then you must be having a baby girl.
Mine ring moved in a pendulum motion and that gave me the correct result.
8. Baking Soda
Pee in a cup (by now you must be having an experience of doing this) and add a little amount of baking soda in it. If this mixture fizzes then its a boy and if it does not fizzes then its a girl. Soda reacts to some acids causing it to fizz and bubble so if it’s more acidic then its a boy otherwise a girl.
During my pregnancy, I did this test many times and every time it gave me the same
Result. I got fizzes and bubbles every time and yes it was a boy.
9. Sleeping Position
It’s very simple and straight, you just have to observe your sleeping position. If you are sleeping on your left side most of the time that means you are expecting a boy and if you are on your right side most of the time den its a girl.
Frankly speaking during my pregnancy I never thought of this trick but I do remember that I use to sleep on my left side most of the time. Boom!!!
10. Breast Size
In your pregnancy, if your right breast is bigger than the left then it has to be a girl otherwise a boy.
Oops, in my case it was reversed for me.
11. Nipple Color
Old wives say that, during your pregnancy, if your areolas are really dark brown then you are expecting a boy otherwise a girl.
Yes, it was true in my case.
12. Belly Lines
It is believed by the old wives that if you have these dark belly lines starting from your pubic area and ending at your belly button then its a girl. If this line ends at your bottom part of your rib cage starting from the pubic area then its a boy.
In my case, I didn’t have a very dark belly line but a very light one and it was all from my pubic area to the bottom of my rib cage.
13. Family History
You must be aware that baby’s sex is determined by the sperms, so to determine your baby’s gender you can have a look at your partners family history like his siblings whether all male or females, his father and grandfather had all males or females.
My partner had all male siblings, he has two elder brothers and he is the youngest one. His most elder brother has two kids and both are males. The second one has a girl.
14. Placenta Position
If your placenta is placed on your right side then you are having a baby boy. If it’s placed on the left side then it’s a baby girl.
It is said that if you dream of a girl then you’ll have a boy and vice-a-versa.
I dreamt of a girl as long as I remember. These old wives tales of gender prediction and these silly, funny and weird tests I tell you….!!!!
Anyways, we all know that gender testing is not recommended but all this tricks and tests are just for fun. So enjoy your pregnancy and these tricks to predict whether you are expecting a baby boy or a baby girl.
Have Healthy Pregnancy.
