I’m still for some reason skeptical as to the gender of my unborn child but Dr. McDreamy has told me that their office has never been wrong. I did make him check 3 times so I’m quite certain he is right but just for fun, let’s go through the old wives tales to see what it predicts:
Sleep in left side (boy) or right side (girl) – Right side
Extreme nausea (girl) or a little/none (boy) – I had very bad nausea this pregnancy
Soft hands (girl) or dry hands (boy) – Soft hands
Craving citrus (girl) – Tie! I craved fruit with both pregnancies
Adult acne (girl) – Yup! I have had more blemishes this pregnancy than with the boys
Graceful (girl) or clumsy (boy) – I am always pretty clumsy so this one can’t count too much
Face weight gain (girl) – Tie! I did get a fuller face towards the end of my pregnancy with the boys and don’t have any face weight gain what-so-ever now
Craving salt (boy) or sweets (girl) – I crave both but more sweets than anything
Mood swings (girl) – Yes!
Carrying low (boy) or high (girl) – High
Baby weight all in front (boy) or space all around (girl) – Both pregnancies I was all belly. Tie!
Pendulum test – Have not done this one at all
If a toddler shows interest in your belly (girl) or no interest (boy) – Most kids have shown interest
Age and year of conception are even (girl) or one even, one odd (boy) – This says I would have a boy
Heartbeat more than 150 (girl) or less than 150 (boy) – The boys heartbeats were always over 150?
Boy = 1 Girl = 8 Tie = 4
Looks like the doctor is right! And according to the Chinese gender predictor chart, it says I am having a girl as well.
Now all we need is the next 45 days to zoom by so we can meet baby KK!
