17 Old Wives’ Tales to Predict Baby’s Gender

One of my very favorite parts of pregnancy was testing out all of those old wives’ tales about gender prediction and birth. For example, eating pineapple is supposed to be a good way to induce labor. However, I ate an entire pineapple on my baby’s due date, but she didn’t come for another week. There’s also another old wives’ tale claiming that if you have lots of heartburn during pregnancy, your baby will be born with lots of hair. For me, this one was true!

  1. Are you carrying high? If so, you’re having a girl.
  2. Are you carrying low? Then it’s a boy, all the way!
  3. Do you have pregnancy acne or other types of skin blemishes? One old wives’ tale claims girls will steal your beauty!
  4. If your skin is glowing and flawless, get ready for a boy.
  5. Have you noticed a change in your body temperature? If you’re feeling cold and icy, it’s a boy! Hot and sweaty? It’s a girl!
  6. Typically, what is baby’s heart rate? An old wives’ tale claims that slower heart rates (under 140 bpm) means boy, while heart rates over 140 means girl.
  7. Have you noticed any significant cravings? If you’re craving sweet things, you’re having a girl. If you’re craving salty or sour foods, it’s a boy.
  8. Both ancient Chinese and Mayan cultures used a calendar to predict baby’s gender. If both your age and the year you conceived are even, you’re having a girl. Same, if they’re both odd. If one is even and one is odd, you’re having a boy.
  9. Have you dealt with morning sickness? An old wives’ tale states that sickness means it’s a girl. If not, then LUCKY YOU!
  10. There’s a fun gender predictor called the Ring Test. To predict the gender of your baby, tie your wedding ring to a string, and hang it above your pregnant belly. If it swings in a circle, you’re having a boy. If it swings back and forth, get ready for a girl!
  11. We all know that sympathy pains are a real thing. If your husband also put on some baby weight, an old wives’ tale says it’s a girl!
  12. Have you experienced swollen legs or ankles? Rumor has it, it’s a boy!
  13. If you have experienced lots of clumsiness during your pregnancy, it’s a boy! If you’ve been graceful, expect a baby girl.
  14. Are you having crazy pregnancy dreams? Rumor has it that your baby’s gender is opposite of the gender you dream about.
  15. Have you experienced frequent headaches during your pregnancy? If so, you could be having a boy!
  16. What color is your pee? If your urine is bright yellow, it’s a boy. If your urine is light or dull in color, it’s a girl.
  17. How is your mood? If you’re happy or mellow, expect a boy. If you’re moody, it’s a girl.
