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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
