Predicting your baby’s gender with old wives’ tales is not the most scientific or the most reliable method for predicting your baby’s gender. However, it can be the most fun way to go about predicting your baby’s gender! If your health care provider has not yet been able to determine whether you are going to have a boy or a girl, why not consider some of the old wives’ tales below?
One of the old wives’ tales for predicting your baby’s gender has to do with the way that you are carrying your baby. In this particular old wives’ tale, if you are carrying your baby low, it is predicted that your baby’s gender will be male. If you are carrying high, then, it is predicted that your baby’s gender will be female. Of course, in reality, the way that you are carrying your baby has nothing to do with your baby’s gender, but rather the muscle and tone of your uterus.

The next old wives’ tale that can be used to predict your baby’s gender is cravings. It is said that the particular food cravings you have are caused by the gender of your baby. So, craving chocolate or other sweets during pregnancy would mean that you are going to have a boy, whereas if you crave sour things like lemons your will have a boy. Of course, pregnancy cravings have more to do, in reality, with a combination of nutritional needs and psychological factors.

Another old wives’ tale uses your husband’s weight gain to predict your baby’s gender. If your husband gains weight, you will be having a girl. If he doesn’t gain weight, you’ll be having a boy.

Some old wives’ tales used for predicting your baby’s gender may even have been thought to be scientific at one time. For example, it was thought that your baby’s heartbeat could be used to predict your baby’s gender. It was thought that a heart rate on the higher end meant a girl, and at the lower end it meant a boy. Medical research has proved this one to be an old wives’ tale, as well.

      thats your opinion, perhaps you should learn how voice future opinions without sounding like such a bitch (:

      also, some genetic disorders are known to be gender specific so some people actually really NEED to find out the sex of their baby, for the safety of the child and the mother.
