We have had a question from one of our lovely members this week: How can I tell if I am having a boy or a girl?
I love this question! Firstly let me say congratulations on the pregnancy. We hope everything goes smoothly for you no matter what the sex of the baby!
There are so many wives tales about how to tell if you are having a boy or a girl. We all know in our heart of hearts that the only way to know is through ultra sound, and even that’s not guaranteed, but it’s so fun to see if the old wives tales work.
Apparently the signs it’s a boy are:
You are carrying low
You crave salty foods and protein
You sleep on the left rather than the right
You get lots of headaches
Heartbeat less than 140 beats per minute
Tie your wedding ring to a ribbon and put it over the baby. If it swings in a straight line it’s a boy.
Bad morning sickness.
The signs it’s a girl:
You are carrying high
Heartbeat over 140 beats per minute
Craving sweet food (girls are made of sugar and spice remember!)
Tie your wedding ring to a ribbon and put it over the baby. If it swings in a circle it’s a girl.
You ate lots of tomatoes before you conceived.
Either way we hope you enjoy testing it out. Let us know if it worked!
