So the big gender reveal is next week. My ultrasound is on Tuesday and I'm announcing the gender of the baby on Wednesday (bringing pink/blue cupcakes to work on Wednesday and don't want to ruin the surprise). But, I thought it would be fun to try some old wives tales and home predictors to see how accurate they were. Here's what they came up with:
#1: Chinese Calendar: According to this, you take your age at time of conception (32) and the month of conception (December....I think) and they give you a gender. Survey says....BOY!
#2: Heartrate: The rules are if the baby's heart rate is over 140, it's a girl. Below, it's a boy. Baby Beach #2 was bopping along at around 156. Survey says....GIRL!
#3: Where it sits: If your belly is high, it's a girl. If it's low, it's a boy. I think my belly looks like it did with Avery, and people say I'm "low". Survey says....BOY!
#4: The necklace test: Swinging a pendant over your pregnant belly, look to see if it goes in a circle (girl) or swings back and forth in a line (boy). Jon did this earlier this week while Avery looked on baffled. Survey says...GIRL!
#5: Husband a fatty?: If the hubby gains weight during a pregnancy, it's a girl. If he doesn't, it's a boy. Granted, Jon's been working out a lot in preparation for his
Yikes, go figure, they all say something different. Guess we'll find out soon which ones held true!!
