I always had a gut feel with Noah on what he was so I never really subscribed to the old wives tales. This time around I’m conflicted, part of me says girl (because I’d love one of each) but the other part says boy. So, I decided to dig up the wives tales and figure it out. Unfortunately I’ve seen conflicting info so take this with a grain of salt.
Chinese Gender chart = Girl
Heartbeat (usually around 160 or so) = Girl (although, Noah’s was fast too so….)
Ring on string over wrist (or belly) = Girl (although I’ve read conflicting reports on this…it went in a circle for me)
Noah prediction = Girl (he keeps saying hi to his baby sister)
Carrying High vs. Low = Girl (but I carried high with noah too)
Craving sweets vs. sour = Boy (loving sour things right now – but then again, I always have)
Acne = Boy (my face has been really clear)
Evens and Odds (legend has it that the Mayans determined a baby’s sex 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.) = Girl (age 31 conceived in 2011)
Morning sickness = boy (none for this babe really and really minor for Noah)
I’m sure there are more but at this point the overwhelming verdict is Girl….
Tune in on Monday for the weekly update to find out if it was right or not….care to take a guess in the mean time?
