Thoughts for Thursday | Boy or Girl ?

Sorry I'm late getting a post up this morning, but since we are headed to find out the sex of baby #2 tomorrow, I thought it would be fun to check out some of the old wives tales on gender prediction.  

Sleep Position
Pay attention to which way you lay down in bed tonight. If you prefer sleeping on your left side, you’ll have a boy. Right side? You’re pregnant with a girl.

BOY- Left side. I think it's more of an effort to not lay down with my back to my husband :)

Upset Stomach
Little girls aren’t always sweet. Extreme nausea means you are having a daughter.

GIRL- The nausea has sucked. Can't wait for it to be completely gone!

Soft or Dry Hands
If your hands are dry during pregnancy, you are having a boy; soft—expect a girl.

BOY- My hands are dry. I think they are always pretty dry though.

Food Cravings
Your favorite pregnancy foods may tell you what sex the baby is. If you’re craving citrus while pregnant, you’re having a girl.
GIRL- I have been loving fruits and definitely oranges and love lemons or lime in my water.

Adult Acne
If altering hormones makes your skin break out, expect a girl.

GIRL- I'd say I've had a few more random breakouts than usual

Graceful or Clumsy Pregnancy
If you feel as though you’re gliding through they day, you’ll have a girl. Stumbling? It’s a boy.

I don't have a good guess on this one, honestly....

Face Weight Gain
If your face gets fuller, it means you’re having a girl.

GIRL - my face feels fatter fuller for sure. 

Sugar and Spice Food Cravings
Craving salt during pregnancy? Potato chips, pretzels, and popcorn means a boy is on the way. Need a little something sweet? Ice cream, chocolate, and candy means you’re having a girl.

BOY- salty, this one is tough but I think I still have craved more citrus and salty than sweet this time around. 

Mood Changes
If you’re experiencing pregnant mood-swings, expect a baby girl to arrive soon.

BOY- I don't think I've really had crazy mood swings.

High or Low Pregnant Belly
If you’re carrying the baby low on your stomach, expect a boy. If it’s high, you’re having a girl.

Too early to tell. Baby is naturally lower right now because he/she is so tiny.

Baby Weight
If you’re carrying baby in front, it’s a boy. Is the baby weight spaced all around your middle? It’s a girl.

GIRL - I think it's a little early too tell, but if I base it on these giant love handles that have appeared then I would say it's spaced around the middle :)

Model Your Hands
“Show me your hands.” If you would hold your hands palms up it’s a girl. Down? You’re having a boy.

GIRL - I just tried to test this and naturally turned my palms up....

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.

BOY- 29 and 2014

Baby’s Heartbeat
If the baby’s heart beats more than 150 times per minute, you’re pregnant with a girl. Less than 150, it’s a boy.

Girl- It's been over 150 both times so far

Stress Test
A child tends to be of the same sex as the parent who is less stressed at the time of conception.

GIRL for sure. I'm always the least stressed :)

Dream Meanings
If you dream about having a girl while pregnant, you will wind up having a boy and vice versa.

I don't think that I've had a dream one way or another yet.

Breast Size
If your right breast is larger than the left while pregnant, you are having a girl. If the left is larger, it’s a baby boy.

GIRL - my right one seems to be a little bigger

My final score:
GIRL = 9
BOY =5

My gut feeling has said girl this entire time, but I also realize that I could be completely shocked come tomorrow.  I was never this certain on the gender with Brody even though I felt like it was probably a boy.  We also believe in the Chinese Gender Calendar a lot and it says GIRL.  I can't wait to find out tomorrow :) 

Did you find that any of the old wives tales were accurate with your pregnancies???  I did this same little test when I was pregnant with Brody and my final score was even with boy and girl.  


  1. I somehow missed the memo you were pregnant so congratulations!!

  2. EVERY old wives tale said girl for us this one. The Chinese Gender Chart said boy. The chart was right (now for the 2nd time lol).

  3. I'm totally guessing girl - I'll be anxious to find out!

  4. My guess is boy! Time will tell!

  5. Im a strong believer in the Chinese Gender Chart- got it right for me both times! So excited for you!

  6. so excited for you to find out! im guessing a girl! xo jillian - cornflake dreams

  7. Love this post! These wives tales are pretty cool :) I'm sure y'all are so excited to find out.. have a great weekend!

  8. I'm saying girl for you and cannot wait to find out!! All the old wives talls said girl for me both times and I had two boys as you know :) My chinese gender for Miller said boy but for Matthew it said girl so I believed it until my second time around lol!

  9. I think the baby is a girl! I cannot wait to find out your results.

    Good Friday everyone :)

  10. This is such a fun post, I love it! Xo, Stephanie
