Gender Prediction Quiz: Boy or Girl?

Are you expecting a girl or boy? If you are looking for gender prediction tips, check out these 6 old wives' tales to see whether you should be buying pink or blue.

If you are pregnant and you cannot wait for the doctor’s appointment to find out the sex of your baby, there are a couple of things you can try before. Taking a gender prediction quiz online can give you an idea, or you can try one of the following old wives’ tales. Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

How you carry the baby

Standing in front of the mirror, checking out your belly, is something that you want to do all day long when you are pregnant. Well, this is a great way to learn whether you are expecting a boy or a girl. If the baby bump is higher up, then you will have a girl, and if you are carrying lower, then it will be a girl.

Chinese calendar

The Chinese calendar is another way to learn the sex of your baby. If you know the month of conception and your age at the time of conception, then you can find out the sex of your unborn child. You can find a Chinese lunar calendar online very easily.

Baby’s heart rate

The heartbeat of your baby is another way of knowing if it is a boy or a girl. It seems that if your baby has a heart rate below 140 beats per minute, then you are expecting a boy. If the baby’s heart rates are consistently higher in the 160s, then you will have a girl.

Body temperature

Your body temperature is another sign of your baby’s sex. If you want to have a boy, you should make love in a colder environment. On the other hand, if you want to conceive a girl, then you and your partner should make love in a warmer environment. So this theory would suggest that all babies conceived in the Antarctica would be boys, and all babies conceived in the Sahara Desert would be girls. Again, see how this fun old wives’ tale may apply to you.

Morning sickness

Another sign to help you determine whether you are expecting a boy or a girl is the degree of morning sickness. If you feel very nauseous at the beginning of your pregnancy, then you are expecting a girl. If you are expecting a boy, then you will have no problems at all with morning sickness.

Did you ‘O’ at conception?

Here is another fun way to determine whether you’re expecting a boy or girl, and this one based more loosely on the Shettles method. If you had an orgasm during sex when you were conceiving, then you will most likely have a boy. This is because your pH balance is more alkaline, creating a better environment to conceive a baby boy. If you did not simultaneously orgasm with your partner, then perhaps it is a girl.

Although there are many such old wives’ tales, remember that they are just that, and you should not rely solely on these signs if you want to know the sex of your baby for sure. The best method is to make a doctor’s appointment and get an ultrasound about 16 weeks after the date of conception. This is the only way you can be sure of the result, as no gender prediction quiz can give you a precise answer.

    There are lots of foods know to increase the chances of giving birth to a baby boy. These include citrus fruits, bananas, breakfast cereals, foods rich in glucose, diet rich in mushrooms and products rich in zinc. And there are several positions known to favor the fertilization of eggs by the male sperm. Having sex in the spoons position with the female on the left of her partner increases the chances of conceiving a baby boy. This position does allow for deep penetration thus male sperm, carrying the Y chromosomes, can be placed closer to the ovaries and fertile eggs. The closer sperm is to the cervix, the more likely it is for conception to take place and male sperm has the advantage of swimming faster than female sperm, once inside the vaginal tract.

    With these symptoms, there is a good chance that you might be experiencing Premenstrual Syndrome or PMS. Experiencing Premenstrual Syndrome is completely normal for women who are expecting their period. Your Premenstrual Syndrome is usually due to hormonal changes that occur on your monthly cycles, and can simply be treated by either taking anti-depressants, diuretics, oral contraceptives or NSAIDs.

    I’m trying to conceive we have been trying for 3 mints now and we are having sex every day. Is that to much? Should we only be having sex every other day?

    It is best that you have sex every other day as doing it everyday can lower your man’s sperm supply. Every-other day reasures enough supply and is frequent enough to ensure that your ovulation period is covered.

    Does a rise in BBT mean that you DEFINATELY ovulated, or can you have a rise and not ovulate?
