6 Fun Ways to Try and Predict Baby’s Gender

So, what are you having? This is the burning question that everyone wants you to answer when you’re pregnant. That’s why girlfriends, moms, aunts, grandmas, and even random strangers, will be sharing their favorite methods for determining the gender of your baby.

Of course, these methods are usually far from scientific. Most non-medical gender prediction techniques are based on old wives’ tales or cultural beliefs. Much of this folklore is passed on from generation to generation.

Here are six approaches to gender prediction that you can test out on your own or with family and friends at your baby shower.

Mayan gender predictor

The ancient Maya were advanced mathematicians, so as you might expect, theirs is a numbers-based system. To put this prediction method to the test, write down the year your baby was conceived and your age at the time of conception. If both of the numbers are odd or even, you can expect a girl. When one number is even and the other is odd, you will have a boy. 

Eye dilation test

According to German folklore, the key to predicting your baby’s gender is in your eyes. Stare at yourself in the mirror for at least one solid minute, but don’t stare yourself down for more than three. If your eyes dilate, you will have a boy. No dilation? Your little one will be a girl.

Bump height test

This one’s a classic that’s based on English folk wisdom—and a bit of old-school thinking. Basically, if you’re carrying your baby low, it is believed that you will have a boy. Why? Because boys are carried low and out front due to their need for greater independence. If you’re carrying your baby high and across your body, it is because you are having a girl and she needs more protection.

Swedish hair test

Take a look at your hair. Does it seem to be getting thinner and stringier now that you’re pregnant? If so, the Swedes believe you will be having a girl. Is your hair noticeably shinier and fuller than ever? If you answered yes, then it’s a boy for you.

Chinese conception chart

According to legend, a 13th-century scientist in China created this ancient tool that is based on the Chinese lunar calendar. Just how does the Chinese conception chart work? Simply search the chart for your age and the month in which your baby was conceived to find out if your little one will be a boy or a girl.

The legs test

Everyone knows that healthy mommies put on a little weight when they’re expecting. The French use this hallmark of pregnancy as a baby gender predictor. According to folklore, if weight is gained on the legs and they begin to resemble tree trunks, a boy is on the way. When there is no weight gained on your legs, you will be the proud mommy of a girl.
