For anyone of my lovely readers that don't know we daily vlog on youtube at www.youtube.com/user/thegibbletsdaily and this weekend we decided to put some old wives tales to the test and see if we can predict our baby's gender! We find out on 4th October which isn't far away so this seemed like a fun way to find out if the old wives tales had any truth to them! I will add our outcome to each at the end of them.
- Morning sickness-if you suffer from morning sickness you are said to be having a girl and if you sail through you are supposedly having a boy! GIRL
- Your wedding ring dangled on some string in front of your belly, if it sways backwards and forwards you are having a boy, if it spins in circles you are having a boy! BOY
- Wonky boobs-If your right breast is bigger you are having a boy, if your left is bigger you are having a girl. BOY
- Baby's heartbeat - Under 140bpm indicates boy and over 140bpm indicates girl. GIRL
- Baby bump - A low bump means you are having a boy and a high bump indicates girl. GIRL
- Food cravings - Sweet cravings mean you are having a girl and savoury cravings mean you are having a boy. BOY
- Movement - Lots of movement means you are having a boy and a chilled out baby means you are having a girl. GIRL
- Show your hands - If you present them palms up you are having a girl, if you show them palms down you are having a boy. GIRL
- Pick up a key from one end - If you pick it up from the rounded end you are having a boy, if you pick it up from the longer narrower end you are having a girl. GIRL
- Looks - If you are blooming and have lovely glossy hair you are having a boy, if you have dull hair and are suffering from spots you are having a girl. BOY
- Hairy legs - If the hair on your legs is growing really fast then you are having a boy, if its growing as it normally is then you are having a girl. GIRL
- Mums face shape - If you have a round face then you are having a girl, if it is longer and narrow you are having a boy. BOY
- Husband/Partner sympathy eating - If you husband/partner is sympathy eating along with you and gaining some weight then you are having a girl, if he isn't then you are having a boy. GIRL
As you can see from our results, if old wives tales are to be believed we are having a little girl! Before we did these we also voted as a family with our predictions and all three children predicted girl but my husband and I both predicted boy.
Giving us a final tally of Girl-11 and Boy-7
I hope you enjoyed this post and seeing our gender predictions, stay tuned to see our actual gender reveal in just over a week!
