Are you eating more sweets or salty food?
Do you find yourself craving more fruits, candy and sweet things in general? Then mama you are carrying a baby girl. If you find yourself grabbing a bag of chips, eating fries or anything of that nature, you are most likely expecting a baby boy. For my first pregnancy I was eating strawberries and watermelon like a crazy mad women. I did in fact give birth to a baby girl. For my twin pregnancy I was craving both salty and sweet foods. I was expecting a baby boy and a baby girl with my twin pregnancy. How crazy cool is that!?
Chinese gender chart
I love this chart because it actually gave me the right results. I did the Chinese gender chart for my first pregnancy because I was curious and I wanted to give it a try, it told me I was going to have a girl! This chart is so much fun and I know you will give it a try because curiosity doesn’t kill the cat (sometimes) haha! I couldn’t do this chart for my twin pregnancy because they don’t have a twin gender predicting chart even though I think they totally should, how fun would that be!
The spoon and fork game
So this game was brought to you by my grandma and I think it’s an old wives tale as well. My grandma placed a fork and a spoon under two couch pillows and told me to sit on one without me looking at where she placed them. After I was seated she told me to stand up, she then removed the pillow where I was sitting on and there was a spoon under it. Which means I was going to have a baby girl. If you sit under the pillow that has the fork, you are going to have a boy. How fun is this game!?
The necklace game
This one is a wives tale and a fun one too. I played the necklace game with my first pregnancy and it predicted that I was going to have a baby girl, even though I sometimes strategically was swinging the necklace left and right to say that I would have a boy, haha! Anyways, so the necklace game is pretty simple, all you have to do is get a necklace that already has a pendant on it or you can put a ring if it doesn’t have one. So you lay down and someone holds the necklace on top of your pregnant belly and the necklace will either swing around your belly or swing side to side (left and right) of your belly. If the necklace is swinging left to right you are having a boy and if the necklace is making circular movements then you are going to have a baby girl. You can do this game by yourself too.
Are you carrying high or low?
This one is very popular and very easy to predict. During my first pregnancy almost everyone (mostly strangers) knew or pointed out that I was going to have a girl based on how I was carrying my belly. With my twin pregnancy it was a little hard for people to tell because not only my belly was huge but I was carrying two babies. So basically if your belly is high you will have a baby girl and if your belly is low you will have a baby boy. Try it out and look at your belly right now, are you carrying high or low?
Okay, pregnant mamas, have you tried any of these 5 fun ways to predict your baby’s gender that I mentioned? Are you having a baby girl or baby boy?
New mom? How nice would it be if your baby slept through the night at 2 month old? If you had time for self care? Slept more and rocked your first year of motherhood? Good news!
