Baby #2 - Is it a BOY or a GIRL?

I did this with James and thought it would be fun to do with Baby #2 as well.  

There are SO many old wives’ tales out there that supposedly indicate whether you are having a boy or a girl - so just for fun, I thought I would test some of them out to see what is in store for us this round!

After each tale, I have indicated whether we will be having a boy or a girl according to the specifics:
  • Morning Sickness – If you did not experience morning sickness in early pregnancy it is a boy and it is a girl if you did have morning sickness early in pregnancy = BOY
  • Baby’s Heart Rate – If the heart rate is less than 140 beats per minute, it is a boy and if its more than 140 beats per minute, it is a girl = GIRL
  • Acne - An increased amount of acne during pregnancy means you are having a baby girl = BOY
  • Food Cravings - If you crave salty food while pregnant it means you are having a boy and if you crave sweet food while you are pregnant it means you are having a girl = GIRL
  • Hands – Dry hands mean a boy and soft hands mean a girl = GIRL
  • Age + Conception #1 - The Mayans take the mothers age at conception and the year of conception and add them together. If the result is an even number then mom is having a girl. If the result is an odd number then a boy is on the way = GIRL
  • Age + Conception #2 - Add your age at the time of conception and the number for the month you conceived. If the sum is even it’s a boy, if its odd a girl = BOY
  • Weight - If someone can’t tell you are pregnant from the back, it’s a boy because with a girl you would be pregnant all over = BOY
  • Chinese Lundar Calendar = GIRL

Boy wives tales: 4
Girl wives tales: 5

So, it looks like GIRL this time around!  We shall see find out soon enough...
