pink or blue?

We have our 20 week ultrasound coming up in a week.  You know, the one where you can find out the gender?  Yes, we’re going to – we’re dying to know.

For a little fun, I looked up a bunch of old wives’ tales for predicting the baby’s gender.  Here are the results:

  • Tie your  wedding ring onto a string and dangle it over your belly.  If it moves in a circle it’s a girl; back and forth, it’s a boy.  RESULTS = GIRL
  • If your craving salty, sour, or spicy foods, it’s a boy, if you want sweets, it’s a girl.  RESULTS = BOY
  • If the baby’s heart rate is above 140, it’s a girl; 140 or below, boy.  RESULTS = BOY
  • A Mayan prediction method has you add the age of the mother at conception and the year of conception.  Even is a girl, odd is a boy.  RESULTS = BOY
  • The Chinese have a chart that determines gender by the mothers age and month of conception.  RESULTS = BOY
  • If you have all-day  morning sickness or morning sickness that lasts well into the pregnancy, it’s a girl.  If you have none, or only a little, it’s a boy.  RESULTS = BOY
  • If your feet are colder during the pregnancy than they were before, it’s a boy.  The same, it’s a girl.  RESULTS = BOY
  • If you’re carrying high, it’s a girl; low, it’s a boy.  RESULTS = BOY
  • If the hairline on the back of the neck is straight, you’ll have the same gender as your last child.  If it comes to a point, you’ll have the opposite gender.  RESULTS = GIRL

According to this, odds are 3:1 that I’m having a boy.  I can tell you that these methods did not all prove true with Cate and Meg.  For instance, I did crave sweets with Cate, but I craved salty food with Meg.  I didn’t have morning sickness with either of the girls, and I’ve had touch of it this time, but still not severe.

We’ll find out for sure in a week!  What do you think?  Boy or girl?  Are their any other old wives tales you’ve heard of?
