Hi everyone! I can smell fall in the air! I never thought I would ever care about college football, but when I met my sweet husband, he was (and still is) a HUGE Georgia fan. Even his family has the TV set on ESPN and the channel never changes from September to January. I’ve learned to enjoy watching football (even though I still have no idea what’s going on) and I have really been looking forward to College Game Day today! So as my honey watches football and paints our living room today, I am looking up pregnancy things on Pinterest and writing this blog!

I am copying one of my friends on this. She has been blogging about her pregnancy and just found out the gender of her baby. Her latest blog was about the old wives tales that predict the gender of your baby. She also had a voting poll where you could guess the gender. I loved what she did so, thank you Sam for the idea! Hope you don’t mind that I’m stealing this. 🙂

Here are the different wives tales I came across though. Let’s see what you guys think.

WIVES TALE #1:

BABY’S HEART RATE- If you’re carrying a girl, the heart rate will be above 140 bpm. It’s a boy if it’s lower than 140 bpm.

BABY BROOKS CONCLUSION: GIRL

WIVES TALE #2:

SLEEPING POSITION- If you sleep on your left side, it’s a boy. Right side,then it’s a girl.

BABY BROOKS CONCLUSION: BOY

WIVES TALE #3:

HAIRY LEGS?- If the hair on your legs have been growing faster now that you’re pregnant, you’re having a boy. If it has stayed normal, it’s a girl.

BABY BROOKS CONCLUSION: BOY

WIVES TALE #4:

CRAVINGS- You’re having a girl if you crave sweets. You’re having a boy if you crave salty things.

BABY BROOKS CONCLUSION: BOY

WIVES TALE #5:

CHINESE GENDER CHART- Chinese birth charts use your age at conception and the year you conceived to determine the sex of your baby. If both are even or odd, it’s a girl. If one is even and one is odd, it’s a boy!

BABY BROOKS CONCLUSION: GIRL

WIVES TALE #6:

MORNING SICKNESS- If you’ve been having morning sickness or have stayed constantly queasy, it’s a girl. If you sail through pregnancy with no morning sickness or just an upset stomach, it’s a boy.

BABY BROOKS CONCLUSION: BOY

WIVES TALE #7:

WHAT DOES MOMMY THINK IT IS?- 71% of moms-to-be know what their having.

BABY BROOKS CONCLUSION: BOY

HEADACHES- If you’ve had headaches, you might be carrying a boy.

BABY BROOKS CONCLUSION: GIRL

WIVES TALE #11:

SHAPE OF BELLY- If you are carrying high with a big, round belly, you are having a girl.  If you are carrying low with a smaller belly that sticks straight out, it’s a boy.

BABY BROOKS CONCLUSION: BOY

WIVES TALE #12:

RING TEST- Using a string, hang your wedding ring over your pregnant belly.  You are having a girl if the ring swings back and forth and it’s a boy if it swings in a circle.

BABY BROOKS CONCLUSION: BOY

BABY BROOKS CONCLUSION: GIRL

WIVES TALE #14:

MOM’S BEAUTY- It’s said that a baby girl “steals” the mother’s beauty. If your beauty disappears during pregnancy, a girl it is! If you think that pregnancy has never made you feel more beautiful, you’re having a boy.

BABY BROOKS CONCLUSION: GIRL (In my own opinion.)

WIVES TALE #15:

HISTORY OF MOM-TO-BE’S PARENT’S KIDS- You can find out the sex by going off of your parent’s kids and the order.  If you are the first born, you will have what your mother had but starting with her second child.  If you are the middle child, you will have what she had, but starting with the third child.  If you are the last child, you will have what your mother had in the exact order.

BABY BROOKS CONCLUSION: BOY

RESULTS: TOTAL BOY: 8, TOTAL GIRL: 7
