Pour urine into a clear container containing two tablespoons of baking soda. If it fizzles like soda it means boy, if it is flat it means girl.
* There was one more gender prediction test that involved pee and Red Cabbage, but I didn't want to buy a head of cabbage...
Ring on a String
You tie a string around your wedding ring and hold it over top of your belly (or wrist). If the ring moves in circles, supposedly it's a girl. If it moves from side to side, it's a boy.
The Even/Odd Mayan System
The legend of the mayans is that a baby's sex can be determined by looking at the mother's age at conception and the year of conception. If both are even or odd, it's a girl. If one's even and one's odd, it's a boy. We conceived in 2016 when I was 23 years old. One even, one odd.
To use this chart, figure out your age at conception and month of conception. The calendar converts it, and you have your answer. This chart claims to be 90% accurate in predicting baby's gender. I was 23 at conception and we conceived in April 2016.
I've heard this conversion can be very accurate!!!
The Old Wives' Tale is that girls steal their mother's beauty, leaving mommy with some wonderful acne. I have had horrible acne since day one of this pregnancy. Although it wasn't my favorite decision to make, I am currently using a topical ointment in the evening to help out with it, but I have not seen much improvement.
If dad gains weight, it means girl. If he maintains his weight it means boy. Haig claims he's been losing weight, but that probably because I've been too lazy to make dinner lately!
I have not had any baby dreams yet! I wish I would have one soon
Yes, in early pregnancy and I have started to feel a little nauseous again lately.
Wide=Girl, Round=Boy. Haig made the call on this one, telling me my belly looks more round.
The Linea Nigra
The dark line that has appeared on your bump. If the line continues above your belly button, boy. If it finishes below your belly button, girl.
From the very faint line, what I can tell is that it goes past my belly button
Carrying High or Low
If your bump is high, you're pregnant with a girl. If your bump sits low, hello boy.
It's originally put low for this tale, but my husband just told me he feels the bump is sitting higher 'lately", and husband's opinions for these predictions are greatly appreciated(mostly because he actually thinks they are all foolish!!!)
Apparently girls have faster heartbeats than boys. Above 140bpm means you're having a girl and lower means it's a boy.
Our baby's heartrate has always been over 140bpm.
BOY - 4
GIRL - 7
*I know these predictions are not reliable at all, but they are still pretty fun! Let me know if any of your gender prediction tests were accurate!
