I’ll play.  We’re having a girl.

1. No morning sickness=boy, nausea=girl

True? I had nausea 24/7 in the first trimester but didn’t get sick at all.  

2. Heart rate over 140 is a girl, below 140 is a boy!

True- since 10 weeks her heart rate has always been over that.

3. Carrying low= boy, Carrying high=girl

True.

4. Baby girls steal beauty, boys make you glow!

True- my skin has been pretty awful with acne.  Unless you count excess oil as a glow, I’m pretty sure I never got mine!  

5. Wedding ring on a string- circle=boy,  back and forth=girl!

Did not try this.

6. Craving sweets=girl, Salty/Sour=boy

I crave the same things as before I was pregnant, which is a combination of both depending on the day.

7. Chinese Calendar!

False!  All of them said boy.

Fun ๐Ÿ™‚

1. No morning sickness=boy, nausea=girl

True for me, I had bad nausea. Funny this week my cardiologist said my sickness was so bad before because it was a girl, haha guess she believes this too.

2. Heart rate over 140 is a girl, below 140 is a boy!

True, it’s been 150+ the whole time so far. 

3. Carrying low= boy, Carrying high=girl

Gotten more true the past week, but sometimes she likes to go down and kick at my cervix lol.

4. Baby girls steal beauty, boys make you glow!

Ehh not so much. My skin is better and my hair thick (though that also means my body hair is thicker.. so maybe there is some truth haha)

5. Wedding ring on a string- circle=boy,  back and forth=girl!

Just tried this now – true!

6. Craving sweets=girl, Salty/Sour=boy

False – I haven’t had too many cravings, but I have been going for tart/sour things like berries over sweets for the most part.

7. Chinese Calendar!

True – mine predicted girl ๐Ÿ™‚

Looks like I got 5.5/7! Haha not bad, wives tales. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I put zero stock in these predictors, especially since they all have a 50/50 chance of being true, but I’ll play. We were Team Green and had a girl three weeks ago.

1. No morning sickness=boy, nausea=girl

FALSISH… I had very little morning sickness for only a few days

2. Heart rate over 140 is a girl, below 140 is a boy!

FALSE! First of all, baby’s heartbeat was all the place, both below and above 140. This is one of the most annoying predictors, because you aren’t told when to check the heartbeat, and all fetuses have a heartbeat in the 180s in the first trimester and then the heartbeat slows to the 130s to 150s later on. Then, what you eat, how much your exercise, caffeine consumption, and time of day will affect that heartbeat.

3. Carrying low= boy, Carrying high=girl

NOT SURE… I was told I was carrying high and low, so I’m not sure. I also carried narrow, which they say means boy, but I have a long torso, so that’s really that reason.

4. Baby girls steal beauty, boys make you glow!

FALSE! My sin has been the same or better than normal, my hair has looked great, and people kept telling me I was glowing.

5. Wedding ring on a string- circle=boy,  back and forth=girl!

Didn’t try it.

6. Craving sweets=girl, Salty/Sour=boy

FALSE!  I mostly craved savory stuff, which is normal for me anyway.

7. Chinese Calendar!

TRUE! Predicted a girl for me.
