Wives Tales

So, now that the cat is out of the bag I'm going to share with you some of the fun Justin and I have had with old wives tales.  Justin is of course convinced we're having a boy, with or without the below results:

Are You A Lefty or a Righty?  LEFTY
So when you sleep, do you sleep on your left? Because if you do, then it’s a boy for you! On your right, a girl is in sight.

Has the hair on your legs grown faster than normal?  FASTER
Or has it grown just like normal? Because if it’s growing faster than it did pre-pregnancy, then you’re said to be having a boy.

Morning Sickness?  HAVEN’T PUKED YET
Did you experience morning sickness in early pregnancy? If you did, then you’re said to be carrying a girl, but if you didn’t have morning sickness, then it’s a boy.

Sweet, Salty or Sour? DAIRY / PROTEIN
Another well known old wives tale!!! Are you craving sweet foods like juice, fruits and chocolate? if so, old wives say that you could be having a girl. But if you’re craving sour or salty foods, then you could be having a boy. It’s also said that if you are having a boy, you will crave protein like meat and dairy. 

Where Are You Carrying Extra Weight?  OUT FRONT I GUESS
Even those extra pregnancy kilos is said to give us an insight into your baby’s gender! If you are carrying extra weight at the front, then you’re having a boy… but if you are carrying extra weight on your bum and hips, then you have been carrying a girl.

The Pendulum Test!  BOY
To make a pendulum, some sort of thin line with a slightly heavier weight at the bottom. (We chose a strand of my hair and his wedding ring.) For pregnant women, hold the pendulum over their belly while they're lying flat.  The pendulum will start to move, usually in circles. Then it will start to move in a straight line - either across the belly (girl) or up and down (head-to-toe direction = boy).

Take a Guess!  BOY
Women (who didn’t yet know their baby’s sex) apparently guess the correct sex of their baby 71% of the time. Not bad!!!

Are there any other wives tales we should be putting to the test?
