Hey babes! Welcome back to yet again another post in my pregnancy journey series. I am trying really hard not to go pregnancy/baby overload on you, but I have so much I want to share and talk about! I do have some more blog posts planned that are not pregnancy related so soon there will be a pause in baby talk…promise!
One of my sweet friends gave me the idea to create a blog post where I take a few old wives tales and try to guess the gender of Baby Devine. I thought that would be such a fun post to do so that is what today’s post is all about!
I know that these are just old wives tales and there is no proof that they are actually going to be true. I also do not prefer one gender over the other. I thought this would be a fun post to do and share prior to finding out the gender next week!
Can You Guess Baby Devine’s Gender?
Heart beat is above 140 bpm it’s a girl, anything below is a boy.
The first two times the baby’s heartbeat was around 166-168 bpm which would indicate a girl. However, the previous heartrate at our last appointment was 147 which would still indicate a girl but is still pretty low (it does lower as the baby gets bigger).
If your skin is glowing and your hair looks it’s straight out of Pantene commercial you’re having a boy, if your hair and skin has been anything but glowing, you’re having a girl.
They say girl’s steal the mom’s looks and I totally believe that. I have been breaking out like crazy this pregnancy, not to mention my hair has not changed one bit.
If you’re carrying low, it’s a boy, if you’re carrying high it’s a girl.
It’s still hard to tell at this point as I’m showing but not all that much. Going off of my current bump though, I’m carrying low.
Craving sweet, it’s a girl, craving salty it’s a boy.
To be honest, I’m craving everything because I’m pregnant, but I crave more sweet things than I do salty.
If you’re carrying most of your weight out front you’re having a boy, if you’re carrying your weight all around, you’re probably having a girl.
Like I said, it’s hard to tell exactly how I am carrying as I am still pretty small at the moment but if I were to guess I would say I’m carrying all out front.
Cold feet mean a boy is on the way, warm feet or no change expect a girl.
My feet are ALWAYS cold, even when I’m not pregnant.
If you have severe morning sickness you are having a girl. They say girls give their mom’s trouble right from the start.
As I mentioned in my previous two posts, I didn’t have much morning sickness, just a little nausea here and there.
If your spouse gains weight, it’s a girl.
Mark hasn’t gained any weight but neither have I so who knows the truth behind this, lol.
If you get severe headaches you’re having a boy, no real headaches it’s a girl.
I’ve had at least three migraines this pregnancy and I NEVER get them. However, it’s also a part of pregnancy.
If you naturally fall asleep on your left side, it’s a boy.
I can only fall asleep lying on my left side! Again, this was the only way I could sleep pre-pregnancy too.
Okay, that’s it for now! There are plenty more wives tales to guess but I chose the most common ones and went from there.
The verdict based off of these old wives tales: BOY!!!
Stay tuned to find out if this gender prediction was correct!
