All of the tales out there are just that – old wives tales. Sure, they’ll work for some people…but that’s because there’s always a 50% chance of it being right, not because any of those tests actually mean anything. Not to take away your fun, I just know some people who really convince themselves it’s one gender, and all the little tests saying they’re right make them even more sure…and then they’re totally bummed if it the ultrasound shows the opposite gender.


I’m currently pregnant and I had awful morning sickness (which means girl), horrible skin (girl), heart rate was slightly over 140 (girl), craved sweets (girl). But I’m 37 weeks along and from the ultrasounds, trust me…I am NOT having a girl. lol

Ha I heard if you look worse during your pregnancy then you’re having a girl because she takes away your beauty ๐Ÿ˜›

I read that if your urine is bright, as opposed to dull, in color, you’re having a boy.  My pee has been bright colored.  I have had mild nausea, nothing that stops the day though.  So maybe I’m having a boy?  Time will tell ๐Ÿ™‚

Per Wives Tales and Methods I’m assuming boy because….

I have no morning sickness,

Tried Shettles method for boy

My belly carries low which means boy

I crave sour stuff which means boy

Normally I have acne but while pregnant my skin is clearer

All signs went towards boy….

BUT GUESS WHAT, I’M HAVING A GIRL, LOL!!!! All those wives tales are not true in my opinion.

 I didn’t have a bit of morning sickness and all of the other old wives tales pointed to boy.  The only one that didn’t was I was craving sweets which is supposedly girl, but my mom said she craved sweets with my brothers (and salty/sour with me) so I assumed I was just following her. Even all the chinese gender predictors out there said boy.  I didn’t want to really believe all that stuff because I knew deep down there’s no way it could be that easy to determine the gender but at the same time, if 99% of “the tales” are pointing to boy then I assumed it had to be somewhat right. 

Well, I just found out this weekend I’m having a GIRL! ๐Ÿ™‚ We’re thrilled but now I know those old wives tales do nothing but mess with your head

I had ZERO morning sickness with my first one, no acne either and she was girl! <3 I’ve had no acne so far this time either! LOL  I honestly don’t care this time, since I have my baby girl already I’d be ok with a boy for sure! BUT if I got another Diva, it’d be so fun! LoL

The majority of the wives tales said boy for me but definitely not all – maybe 3/4 boy and 1/4 girl.  The chinese gender predictor thing said girl.  It’s a boy for me!  Just fun to guess and dream.  ๐Ÿ™‚  Good luck to you!

All of the old wives tails that I heard pointed to boy for me, and they were right! Wanting tangy/sour food over sweets, carrying low, good skin, no morning sickness, Chinese calendar…

This post makes me laugh. We are at 14 weeks and at our 12 week NT scan, our technician and OB knew with 99.9% certainty it’s a boy. He happened to be lying in the perfect position and they were able to get a number of shots that proved it.

However, when I spoke to a few people that claimed they could tell these things, they swore up and down it would be a girl. We haven’t told them yet, but it’s hilarious to listen to them list the many ways they can tell.

At both U/S (8 weeks and 12 weeks), our baby’s HR is consistently over 160. I’ve craved both sweet and sour food, but there’s definitely only one baby in there. I had plenty of MS and a fair amount of acne as well.

I heard if you crave sugar (and didn’t as much before), then girl!

DH is very against finding out, so we will have a long 9 months!

I’m pregnant with a baby boy.

I had signs that pointed to both – I’m carrying low, I only had some mild nausea for a few weeks, and I’m carrying all belly and in the front (boy).

But on the other hand, in first trimester I craved fruit and juices, my baby’s HB was on the higher side, and I have had the worst body acne I’ve ever had in my life (girl).

It’s fun to guess, but I don’t really hold much credibility to old wives tales. Either way, you have a 50/50 chance. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m really curious about this as well. I think a poll added to this thread would be awesome. But it seems like the consensus from the comments is that the old wives tales were 50/50 lol. I actually have been caring my weight all around my belly like a tire so I was hoping it was a girl so that there would be an explanation for all this additional fat lol.
