Candle in the Night

It's a...

This morning, we had our 20 week ultrasound.  Before I reveal the gender, I'll tell you that everything looks great!  Baby is measuring at about 22 weeks, but our midwife isn't worried about it and didn't change the "due" date (praise the Lord!).  Everything else looked great.  Heart, kidneys, brain, stomach...all normal.  :)  I'm not a huge worrier, but I will say that I hold my breath a tiny bit before these ultrasounds hoping everything will look good.  And it did!

So...I've seen several people do the gender predictor wives' tale tests and we did a few before the ultrasound, just for fun!  Here are the results.

Baby's Heart Rate: If baby's heart rate is above 140, it's a girl
Girl

String with wedding band tied on: Hold it over your belly.  If it swings back and forth, it's a girl, if it swings in a circle, it's a boy.
Girl


Key test: Pick up a key.  If you pick it up by the top, it's a boy, if you pick it up by the bottom, it's a girl.
Boy

Mayan Gender Predictor: Look at the mother's age at conception and the year of conception.  If both are odd or even, it's a girl.  If they're different, it's a boy.
Boy

Chinese Gender Predictor
Girl

Is your acne worse while pregnant?  If so, it's a girl.  If not, it's a boy.
Boy

Are you craving salty or sweet?  Salty=boy, sweet=girl.
Boy

The whites of the eye test: Pull down the skin under your left eye.  If you see a "v" or branches, you're having a girl.
Girl

Child's first word: If your previous child's first word was "mama", it's a girl.  If it was "dada", it's a boy.
Girl

Leg test: If your legs are staying in shape, it's a girl.  If not, it's a boy.
Girl

Mood swings:  If you're more moody than normal, it's a girl.
Girl

Are you clumsy or graceful: If you're more clumsy while pregnant, it's a boy.  If you're more graceful, it's a girl.
Boy

Do you prefer to lie on your right or lefts side? Right for girl, left for boy.
Girl

The "Show me your hands" test: If you show the backs of your hands, it's a boy.  If you show your palms, it's a girl.
Girl

Is daddy gaining weight? If so, it's a girl.  If not, it's a boy.
Boy

Necklace test: Have someone hold a necklace over your hand.  If it swings back and forth, it's a boy.  If it swings in a circle, it's a girl.
Boy

What do YOU think you're having: If you think boy, it's a boy.  If you think girl, it's a girl.
Boy

Morning sickness/nausea: Is it really bad?  If so, it's a girl!
Girl

Are you craving protein (meat, cheese)?: If so, it's a boy.  If not, it's a girl.
Girl

Are your feet colder now that you're pregnant? If so, it's a boy!
Girl

Is the hair on your legs growing faster than normal? If so, it's a boy!
Boy

Are your hands constantly dry? If so, it's a boy, but if they're soft, it's a girl.
Girl

Is your pee bright yellow or dull yellow?  Bright for boy, dull for girl.
Girl

Are you having headacheds? If so, it's a boy.  If not, it's a girl.
Boy

So that's 10 points for boy and 14 for girl.  But my intuition was the biggest thing I looked at.  The girls were both guessing (read: hoping) girl, but I was pretty sure it was a boy.  This pregnancy has been SO much different than my other two!

And guess what?  Mama was right!  We'll be welcoming Baby D into our family sometime in late January or early February.

So...let the boy shopping begin!!

That is quite a list! I have heard of some of these like the string with the wedding band. My sign was the degree of morning sickness. It held true for me--more morning sickness when I was carrying a girl.

One that I didn't see on your list is whether your belly is all out front (girl) or evenly circular around the hips (boy).

I'm glad you left a comment on my blog. It is nice to meet you.

Thats a lot of tests! We are guessing another girl here (this would be girl #4) and find out on Monday. We are due on Valentines day, so we are so close to each other! YAY babies.

Congrats.

God Bless
