Old Wives Tales to determine pregnancy? Here are mine!!

Gender Predictors & Results

**Please remember, these are all supposed to be for fun. Do not have babies if you are not okay with either gender! There is no way to know for sure until you get an ultrasound and/or deliver**

Acne:
Are you glowing during pregnancy or is the baby stealing your beauty? Girls are said to steal their mother’s beauty so if you are having serious acne issues, expect a girl.
Answer: GIRL (looks like I may be carrying 5 baby girls then)

Heart rate: 
Take the baby's heart rate during pregnancy for gender clues. A girl baby has a fast heart rate, around 170 beats per minute. A boy baby's heart rate is closer to 150 beats per minute.
Answer: GIRL (baby’s heartbeat was 180)

Wedding ring test: 
Hang your wedding ring from a string and hold it over your belly. If the ring swings in a circle motion, you are having a girl. If the ring swings back and forth, it is a boy.
Answer: GIRL

Key test:
Pick up a key. If you grabbed it by the top, you are having a boy. If you picked it up by the bottom, the baby is a girl. Picking the key up in the middle means that you will have twins.
Answer: BOY

Garlic test:
Eat a clove of garlic. If eating the clove makes you exude a strong garlic scent, you will have a boy. If there is little to no odor, you will have a girl.
Answer: GIRL

Chinese Chart:
We all know this chart. Google it.
Answer: BOY

Baking Soda:
Mix 1tsp of baking soda and urine and see if it fizzles. If you get fizzle, expect a boy. If nothing happens, a girl will make her appearance.
Answer: GIRL

  Cravings:
Craving Sweets? A prince is baking. Craving salty and spicy? A princess is due.
Answer: GIRL

Dreams:
If you dream about a girl, you’ll have a boy. If your dreams are about a boy, you’ll have a girl.
Answer: BOY

The Mayan Tale:

If you are Mayan then you may follow their beliefs and use numbers to determine the sex of your baby. The Mayans take the mothers age at conception and the year of conception and add them together. If the result is a even number then mom is having a girl. If the result is an odd number then a boy is on the way! The Chinese have a similar way of determining the sex of a baby.
Answer: BOY

Ramzi Method:
Which side is your placenta on? Left means girl, Right means Boy.
Answer: GIRL

Hair Line Gender Predictor:
If your child's hair line goes straight across, your next child will be the same gender. If it comes to a point, you will have the opposite gender. 
Answer: GIRL

That’s all I’ll post at the moment… as the pregnancy progresses, I’ll update this list. Please know, I do not believe any of these hold true. It’s really a 50/50 chance. 
I fully expect to have another boy. :)
