Old Wives Tales
As my ultrasound nears, It usually gets a little worse. Ill start swinging my wedding ring over my belly on a string to analyze the patterns, every craving becomes a sign, and Ive even been known to come up with a few crazy theories of my own and call them science.
Then comes the week before the ultrasound, and I go completely nuts. I have spent a huge chunk of this week scouring the Internet for new Old Wives Tales. I came this one and it seemed pretty legit to my crazed pregnant mind, and so I introduce you to, The Baking Soda Gender Test.
Its based on the theory that if you're pregnant with a boy, you will have a higher level of uric acid in your pee, (or something like that). Basically you pee in a cup, add a Tbsp of baking soda and swirl it around. If it foams, you're having a boy, if it stays flat you're having a girl.
I read a little bit about it before hand, and expected to have to listen for the foaming, or for it to be a small amount ( it was described to be like head on a beer), I was not prepared for this,
Spongebob Theory - GIRL
Shape of Belly - If you are carrying high with a big, round belly, you are having a girl. If you are carrying low with a smaller belly that sticks straight out, it’s a boy. GIRL
Ring Test - Using a string, hang your wedding ring over your belly. If the ring swings back and forth its a girl and if it swings in a circle its a boy. BOY
Acne - If you have acne while pregnant, it’s a girl. GIRL
Cravings - Salty = boy, sweet = girl INCONCLUSIVE
Ancient Chinese Gender Predictor - GIRL
Side You Most Rest On - Left Side = Girl, Right side = boy. GIRL
Dad’s Weight Gain
If the dad-to-be gains weight while you are pregnant, it’s a girl. If he doesn’t gain weight, you’re having a boy. GIRL ( sorry D)
Morning Sickness - Girls make you sick and apparently boys don't. GIRL
Baking Soda - BOY
So it looks like its 6:4 for a girl with the old wives tales, for now, I'm pretty confident that this craziness wont end before Monday.
