chinese gender new

Hello all the expecting mommies.. Hope you are all in good health.

Here is one fun topic I’m sure most of you would have been thinking about during your pregnancy.

Since we don’t have gender determination in India we keep guessing if we are having a boy or girl, and you must have heard everyone around you guessing if you have a girl or boy.

So Anjjali and Me have decided to do a fun post here with the old wives tales and our experiences. Btw Anjjali is the momma of Aaditya and Maanvi is my daughter.

So here is the comparisons, let us know your experience

Old Wives Tale: If you are having a little girl, you will have clear glowing skin with no acne.

Jaishri :I had glowing skin no acne anything- True

Anjjali: I had a pigmented, dull skin and I have a baby boy – True

Old Wives Tale: Take off your wedding ring and tie it to a thread, and hang it over your belly. If it swings in a circle, you have a boy; back and forth a girl.

Jaishri : Did not try

Anjjali : Me too did not try

Old Wives Tale: Your baby’s heart rate is under 140 beats per minute then your having a little boy. If it’s over 140 then girl.

Jaishri : True- heart beat was always over 150-160

Anjjali : False- heart beat was 180

Old Wives Tale : If your craving sweets then your going to have a little girl. Salty and sour cravings indicate a boy.

Jaishri : False- I was craving spicy food and salty cheese

Anjjali : I did not have any particular cravings and I liked sweet and salt both

Old Wives Tale: Chinese Birth chart

Jaishri : False for me

Anjjali : False for me predicted girl in every calendar

Old Wives Tale: If your husband puts on a little weight then your going to have a girl.

Jaishri : True, not that he really gains weight.. but maybe 1kg so I say true.

Anjjali : Dont know

Old Wives Tale: Lot of morning sickness indicates girl, if you didn’t have a lot of morning sickness , then boy.

Jaishri : False not much nausea and I have never thrown up.

Anjjali : True

Old Wives Tale: If your feet got colder in pregnancy then boy, for girl vice versa or no change in temperature.

Jaishri : I had warm feet- True

Anjjali : I dont remember

 Old Wives Tale: Did your nose get wider or change, if so your having a boy.

Jaishri : True- my nose was normal

Anjjali : True – my nose did grow wider

Old Wives Tale: If you are carrying high then you are having a girl. If you are carrying low with a smaller belly then you’re having a boy.

Jaishri : False- everyone who saw my stomach said boy

Anjjali : True – I carried low and everyone said it’s a boy

So guys shall we conclude that all this is not true.. and you can just try it for fun and not take anything seriously. It’s better not to expect anything, you all should be able to welcome your baby with a big smile. Cheers!!

    Well I know there are many who are inquisite like me…:lol: ..there is another test known as Baking Soda test….what you do is put a little bit of baking soda in the bottom of a disposable cup and then add a little bit of your urine to it. If it fizzles like a soda pop, it may be a boy. If there’s no fizzle, it may be a girl. Hope it works out :-P
