The Predictions Based on Gender Prediction Charts and Old Wives Tales:
Time of Conception: GIRL
We know exactly when we conceived and it was the night or next day after getting my IUD out and three days post ‘activity’. That being said girl.
It is said that if you crave sweet it’s a girl and if you crave salt you’re having a boy. I have been craving both but in my first trimester it was all about sweet fruits. I guess I am still all about fruit, especially berries. I also love my savory foods but that’s not a new thing I have always loved savory more than sweet.
I haven’t had any gender specific dreams yet. I know that that when I was pregnant with Edith I didn’t start having any until my third trimester.
Sleeping Preference: GIRL
I have read that you prefer sleeping on your left side, you’ll have a boy and if you prefer your right side a girl. I prefer my right and always have but this time around I have been stressing less about making sure to sleep on my left side and have just been alternating through out the night.
Morning Sickness Severity: GIRL
Apparently extreme nausea or nausea that lingers all day means you are having a girl. Just like with Edith extreme nausea all first trimester and this time it was from about week 6 until week 16.
Mathematical Formula: BOY
You add your age (2 + 8) to your due date month (7) to your conception month (1+1). Odd equals boy, even equals girl. Mine adds up to 19.
The Bump Chinese Gender Predictor: BOY
I used the chart on The Bump. This one is based on your age not your lunar age.
Chinese Gender Predictor: GIRL
This test takes your Chinese Lunar Age into consideration.
Woman’s Birth Year: 1985 Month: 8 Day: 28 Time Zone: EST
Conception Year: 2013 Month: 11 Day: 5 Time Zone: PST
It’s a girl! (Chinese Age 29 at Lunar month 10)
Mayan Table: BOY
Seems to be basically the same as the Chinese Gender Predictor.
Hands- Soft or Dry?: BOY
If your hands are dry-boy. If your hands soft-girl. My hands haven’t been dry until this week and I’m not sure if it’s because we are having a boy or just the fact that the weather is changing.
Apparently if you’re craving citrus, you’re having a girl. I craved citrus with Edith and this pregnancy as well. I love me some lemonade and grapefruit!
Apparently if your skin breaks out, expect a girl and my skin has been awful just like with Edith.
High or Low?: BOY
If baby is low, expect a boy. High, it’s a girl.–Well I am carrying low. However I have also read that where you carry is based on your body type, whether you have a good set of abs before conception and pregnancy #.
Nature’s language: GIRL
It is believed that nature communicates with humans through forms. In this case, if the mother’s womb is round, it is a girl. If it is pointed, it is a boy (source). I am feeling like I look pretty round so I guess girl?
Heart Beat: GIRL
Is Baby’s heart beat faster than 140 beats per minute (bpm)? It’s a girl. Less than 130 bpm? It’s a boy (source). Heart beat has consistently been above 130 bpm.
Gut Feeling: Seriously no idea. Leaning towards girl but really who knows.
TOTALS: 9 Girl, 5 Boy, 2 inconclusive.
What do you predict we will have?
