Congratulations! You’re having a baby. Pretty soon (and regardless if you are planning to find out the sex of your baby or not), everyone and their mother will have an opinion on the sex of your baby. And chances are, they’ll know a tell tale sign that absolutely proves their guess is the right one. Here are a few “old school” ways that Aunt Wanda is ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN she knows what you’re having. Ha!
Food Cravings: Sweet vs. Salty
If you’re craving citrus and suffering from a serious sweet tooth, you’re having a girl. If all you want are potato chips, traditionally salty and protein-rich foods, you’re having a boy.
Take notice of which way you lay in bed tonight. If you prefer sleeping on your left side, you’re having a boy. Right side? You guessed it! Girl.
Unfortunately, this early pregnancy symptom doesn’t tend to discriminate. But if you’re suffering from excessive nausea and morning sickness, the theory is you’re having a girl.
High versus low
According to pregnancy “experts” like Aunt Wanda, if you’re carrying high it means you’re having a girl. Carrying low means you’re having a boy.
The ring test
Try this experiment! Tie a ring on a string and hang it over your belly. If it swings in a circular motion, it’s said you’re having a girl, but if it swings side to side, it means you’re having a boy.
Even and Odd Numbers
If your age and year of conception are both even or odd, it’s girl. One even, one odd means a boy. Who knows!
