Chances are lots of women in your life right now are trying to tell you fun ways on how you can predict your baby's gender. You have heard of some ways, but perhaps the following baby gender predictors are new ones to you. Have some fun and give them a try to see which ones actually work.
Your Baby's Heart Rate
Seeing those cute little pictures of sonograms and ultrasounds are things expectant mothers live by, for they are the first pictures of your baby progressing in your tummy. Yet, did you know that seeing the patterns in your baby's heart rate can actually predict the gender? It is said that you are having a boy if the heart rate is under 140 beats per minute, and that you are having a girl if the heart rate is over 140 beats per minute.
Another fun way you can try and determine the gender of your baby is by looking at ancient Chinese birth charts and comparing the age you were at the time of conception. To give it a try look at this Chinese Fortune Calendar and find out the gender of your baby today. You might just surprise yourself with the gender your baby will be.
String Your Wedding Ring
If you tie your wedding ring to a piece of string and hang it over your belly, some believe you can actually determine the gender. If it swings back and forth, you are supposedly having a girl. If it swings continuously in a circle, supposedly that means you are having a boy. The size of your wedding ring does not matter, for it is all about the way it swings.
Finding yourself craving chocolate a lot more than normal is what some say means you are having a sweet little girl. Get it, sweets? If you find yourself craving foods that are sour or salty, then some say you are having a boy. Livestrong provides research that shows what other cravings could mean.
The High And Low Test
Depending on how high up or how low you are carrying your baby is another gender predicting factor for expectant mothers. If you are carrying your baby low, or in front, that probably means you are having a boy. If you are carrying your baby high, or horizontally, that probably means you are having a girl.
Sympathy Weight From Your Husband
If you find your husband reaching for the same pregnancy cravings you are reaching for, although he would never reach for that normally if you weren't pregnant, there is an old wives' tale hidden in this one as well. This most likely means you guys will be having a sweet little girl. Again with the sweets, right?
Paying Attention To Your Body
Observing how your body is changing during your pregnancy is another potential cue for which gender your baby will be. Surely you have heard that little girls will steal their mother's beauty, so if you find yourself breaking out in acne flare-ups or getting a few extra wrinkles, you can suspect you could be having a girl.
We all have heard that most expectant moms will get morning sickness during their first trimester. However, there are many women out there who do not get morning sickness at all. Why is that? Well, if you don't get any morning sickness, that presumably means you are having a boy. If you do get morning sickness, that presumably means you are having a girl. Studies from WebMD verify that if you have a higher amount of a certain type of hormone called hCG, as a result, it can cause the morning sickness, which most often means you are having a girl.
