Old Wives tales that have to do with gender predictions

One of my friends recently did this just before they went in to find out the gender of their twins. I thought it might be fun to do the same, since we are having the sonogram tomorrow to find out what the gender of our baby is.:D

1. How am I carrying (high: girl, low: boy)
When we last went in, I was told that I am carrying high, so that would be a point for the baby being a girl.:D

2. Where are you carrying? ( front like a basketball=boy, middle like a watermelon-girl)
The last couple of weeks, when it has become more noticeable, I would say more in the front, so a point for boy.

3. Cravings (salty and meat=boy, sweats and fruit=girl)
I should throw this out, since I am not having twins and yet crave salty foods and fruits. I can't stand the smell of red meat, especially when it is cooking, but I have craved ice cream, so this would count as another point for the baby being a girl.

4. Morning sickness (none=boy, a lot=girl)
I haven't had a lot, by most standards, but I have had a lot of nausea. I don't know who I would give that to.

5. Hands (rough=boy, soft=girl)
Soft, so girl.

6. Addition (add the month you conceived to your age. even=boy, odd=girl)

7. Attitude (same=boy, moodier=girl)

8. Momma's intuition

9. Daddy's intuition
Boy (so one of us will be right. lol)

10. Skin on face (normal=boy, more breakouts=girl)
Normal. Boy.

Total: 4 for a boy and 5 for a girl.


  1. I love old wives tales!!! A lot of times they are true.... I carried high, craved sweets, had terrible morning sickness and was soooo moody LOL. I cannot wait to find out what u guys are having!

  2. lol, I think it is funny that my answers were so split though! But, come to find out, we are having a girl after all.:D

  3. A girl!! Hurray! :)
    What is your due date? I knew you were pregnant by something you had said before but had forgotten if you mentioned your due date.
    I hope the rest of your pregnancy goes well and the delivery too. Can't wait to hear what you're naming her too :)
