One of the blogs I enjoy reading are the Being Pregnant and Toddler Times on Babble. I started reading it because one of the writers for Being Pregnant was also a pregnant runner. She has since had her baby and has probably moved on to their "first year" series. I kept reading Being Pregnant because I'm kinda passionate about pregnancy and birth after the whole experience.
So... today's post really intrigued me about predicting a baby's gender. I never did any of the "pee on things" tests but most things pointed to having a girl. I carried out and round (most say that's a girl) verses carrying low (supposedly a boy). I was also very sick from 6-14 weeks (also a "girl" thing). Obviously they were all wrong for us. I just calculated the Myan calendar thing that is mentioned in one of the slides and it also said that N would have been a girl. (I was 29 years old when I conceived in the year 2009= even numer = girl per the calculation) Oops. Wrong again.
Supposedly we could even predict a future child's gender by N's hairline. Hmmmm... looks like it would be boy because his hairline doesn't come to a point (supposedly meaning we would have the same gender as the first). Interesting stuff.
Did you all look up old wives tales when you were pregnant? I admit that I did a lot because we were'nt finding out N's gender until birth, which left 9+ months of looking up these things.
Were they right or wrong for you?
