Just for fun - Old Wives Tales


Hi ladies,

I did this old wives tales for fun just to see what they say and see how accurate they were. Im finding out at 20 weeks so could only do the ones which didn't include myths about the bumps...
Anyone want to join me with these?
Ill write down below the ones I did...

1. If your skin is soft its a girl if its dry its a boy - GIRL
2. If your hair is thin its a girl if its thick a boy - BOY
3. Combine your age and month of conception - if both even its a girl and if both odd or 1 even 1 odd its a boy - BOY
4. If you are craving sweets its a girl and salty its a boy - GIRL
5. If you had strong to severe nausea/morning sickness its a girl or if mild or none its a boy - GIRL
6. If your feet stayed normal its a girl or have gotten colder its a boy - GIRL
7. If your skin and hair is NOT glowing its a girl and if you look flawless its a boy - GIRL
8. If your right breast got bigger its a girl and if your left breast got bigger its a boy - GIRL
9. If your skin has gotten spotty its a girl and if your skin is clear its a boy - GIRL
10. If your leg (or elsewhere) is growing at the same normal pace its a girl or if its growing quicker its a boy - GIRL
11. Chinese calendar - BOY
12. If you have NOT suffered from headaches in your 1st Tri its a girl and if you have suffered from headaches its a boy - GIRL
13. Baby names - which gender name have you picked from day one and are obessed with - GIRL
14. Baking Soda test (mixed with your pee) - if it is still its a girl if it fizzes its a boy - BOY
15. Ring string test hovered above belly - if it goes round its a girl and if it goes side to side its a boy - GIRL
16. Hearbeat - if it sounds like a galloping horse it is a girl and if it sounds like a steam train a boy - Steam train - BOY
17. If the heart beat is greater then 140 it is a girl and lower then 140 it is a boy - 144bpm - GIRL

12 girl and 5boys

Have fun ladies - remember it is for fun only and to be honest I'm probably more likely to have a boy haha xx

Not sure about #10.

11 - GIRL

So even if the last 3 are Boy, I'm still leaning towards Girl!
