Wives Tales

To celebrate Kyle and I finding out what the gender of baby Richardson is this week...I've decided to try out every possible wives tale about predicting the gender that I could find on the internet. Let's see how well wives tales ACTUALLY can predict the sex of our baby!

What does Mom think the gender will be:


What does Dad think the gender will be:


Ok here are all the wives tales that I could possibly find to predict the gender! What do you guys think the gender will be? 


  • Are you carrying your baby high or low? Carrying high means it's a girl, carrying low...it's a boy: Low
  • Are you craving sweets or sour/salty?If you crave sweets, it's a girl...sour/salty means it's a boy: Sour/Salty
  • The Chinese Birth Chart says..... Boy
  • Drano + Urine...Girl= green, Boy=Blue: Green
  • Mayans determined a baby's sex by looking at the mother's age at conception and the year of conception. If both are even or odd, it's a girl. If one's even and one's odd, it's a boy. Mayans predict.... Girl
  • Are you breaking out in Acne? If you are it's a girl...if you aren't...it's a boy: Acne
  • Attach your wedding ring to a string and place it over your belly. If it spins in a circle, its a boy, if it goes back and forth, it's a girl: Circle! 
  • Did you have morning sickness? Then it's a girl. No morning sickness means it's a boy: Morning sickness
  • Did your husband gain sympathy weight? That means it's a girl. If he hasn't gained weight...it's a boy: No weight gain
  • If you have headaches during pregnancy, this is a gender predictor you’re expecting a boy.  No brain pulsing is supposed to mean it’s a girl. Headaches
  • Has the hair growth on your body changed in anyway? If it has, it's a boy...but if it's stayed the same during pregnancy, then it's a girl: Stayed the same
  • Will you eat the heel of the bread?  If you will you are carrying a boy, if you refuse it's a girl: I'll eat it :)
  • Key test...if you pick up the key by the thick, round part... it's a boy. If you pick up the key by the skinny part, it's a girl: I picked it up by the skinny part
  • Are you more Moody than usually? If you are, it's a girl. If you are happy...it's a boy: Moody
  • Are your feet cold? If they are, it's a boy. If they aren't cold, it's a girl: Cold feet
  • Are you more clumsy than usual? If you are it's a boy, if you are graceful, it's a girl: Clumsy
  • 71% of the time, the mom-to-be knows what she is having: Boy!
  • Do you crave more protein than you did before...it you do it's a boy, if you don't it's a girl: I love Protein! 
  • If urine color is bright yellow, it's a boy...dull yellow means it's a girl: dull yellow
  • Have your breasts grown a lot? If so, it's a girl. Not much growth...its a boy: Growth!
  • The eye test is when a “V” or “branches” appear when you pull down the skin under your left eye. If you see a “V” or “branches” , you’re having a girl. No "V"...it's a boy: I saw the "V"
  • Which side do you like to sleep on? Right= girl, Left=Boy: Left
I have to admit, there was one wives tale that I refused to do...It's called the garlic test. You eat a clove of garlic...and if garlic smell comes out of your pores, its a boy...no smell...it's a girl. No thank you...I will not be eating garlic. GROSS!

The final tally is:

BOY: 12

GIRL: 10

We shall see on Friday (4 days!!!)
