I am not sure about morning sickness because I didn’t have morning sickness with any of my babies, and I had 1 girl and two boys. There is another wives tale that says if you have a lot of heartburn, the baby will have a full head of hair when it is born; that proved true for me. I had a ton of heartburn with my daughter and she was born needing a haircut. I didn’t have heartburn with my boys, and they didn’t have a lot of hair when they were born. I have also been told that if you carry to the inside, the baby will be a girl, and if you carry to the outside, the baby will be a boy; this also proved true in my case.

I have heard that but I have heard that is an old wives tale

I sure hope so because I have has NO morning sickness and I want a girl 🙂

I really do think it is just one of the MILLIONS of things that people say that are not really true. Like boys and girls are not carried differently (high vs. low) The Chinese Gender Chart is just as inaccurate as it has been accurate. So there will always be some people who can say “yep…that was totally true for me” and there will be others who can say “nope, that theory was wrong with my baby”.

I had horrible morning sickness (lost 15 lb) and I have a girl! My bff never got sick once and she has 2 boys. Also have another friend who wasn’t sick at all and has 2 boys. So maybe…..but probably a wives tale.

I was so sick and had a boy.  I only gained 13 lbs the entire pregnancy, but he was 7lbs 10 oz.   I had to take diclectin to actually gain weight.   Same with my sister and she had a boy.

My mom had 2 boys and 2 girls…no morning sickness with any of us. It’s totally false – either you’ll have morning sickness or you won’t regardless of the sex of the baby.

You could even have no morning sickness with one pregnancy and then have it with your next.

I dont think thats true. My SIL has 2 boys (1 yrs and 3 yrs old) and she was VERY sick during both pregnancies.

I’ve been pregnant with both and have not been plagued by bad morning sickness thankfully.  Both pregnancies were very similar although i was massive with my boy and smaller compact with my girl.

I had zero morning sickness…not even a day…and Im having a girl.

Also, I am carrying very low and to the side…still a girl.  Im all belly (haven’t gained anywhere else) and haven’t lost my looks lol.  I tried the Chinese gender calendar thing, but turns out there are multiple versions of them so that totally depends on which one you happen to look at. So The only old wives tale that was actually true in my case was the needle/wedding ring on a string trick.
