Does having clear skin pregnancy mean you're having a boy?!

    Hey all :)

    I just wondered how true the old wives tales about gender and symptoms are?
    For example, people have been telling me that because my skin is completely clear (no spots/zits - not one!) it means I'm having a boy. I found this interesting as when I was pregnant with my daughter I had major acne breakouts!

    I thought this would be interesting to find out how true the old wives tale really is so if you ladies wouldnt mind taking part in the poll, I'd be grateful :)

    :hug:

    I very rarely got any spots when i was pregnant with my daughter but got them everywhere when i was pregnant with my son. So that theory doesnt work for me!

    This time i seem to have a new spot just about everyday!!

    Truly saying i don't believe in any of the old wifes tales. Out of 100000 there are I bet at least one will be right for you, so people assume that they work... But they don't.

    If I were listening to those with my first I would be buying girl's stuff right from the beginning and my son would be called Elizabeth:rofl::rofl::rofl:

    i got spots right at the end on my first pregnancy (had miss bop) but put that down to being really anemic, my friend had terrible acne and she had a boy,
    having a girl this time round and no spots yet touch wood lol

    I have developed a patch of rosacea (red, dry and spotty) on one cheek since I've been pregnant - never had anything like that before. Mind, I have generally very clear skin anyway and the rest is fine, it's just this one patch. Odd. I'm having a boy.

    I didn't have acne in my pregnancy with my daughter, but I've always had really clear skin.

    She has baby acne though, courtesy of my hormones :) haha

    I am having horrible pimples (spots) and expecting a boy... they were severe with my DD as well.. so guess it is all hormonal and gender does not effect it much IMO...
