It's Nightmare Before Christmas themed! It will be middle of November!
For those of you still waiting til after the family party I found this:
I pulled only the myths that involve gender for right now.
What do you guess?
Old Wives Tale #4: Heart Rate
If the baby’s heart rate is above 140 bpm, it is said that the baby will be a girl. If it is under 140 bpm, then it will be a boy.Baby's latest heartbeat scan was 160! Girl.
Old Wives Tale #12: 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.I feel like I'm carrying high, but it sticks straight out! I'm going to go with girl.
Old Wives Tale #13: Ring Test
Using a string, hang your wedding ring over your pregnant belly. You are having a girl if the ring swings back and forth and it’s a boy if it swings in a circle.Definitely a circle. Boy.
Old Wives Tale #14: Shape of Mom’s Face
When your face gets fuller and rounder when pregnant, it means you’re going to have a girl. If your face is long and narrow, it’s a boy.I feel like my face has gotten narrower as of now. Boy.
Old Wives Tale #15: Key Test
Pick up a key. If you pick up a key at the top (the roundest part), you are going to have a boy. If you pick up the key at the bottom (smallest part), you are going to have a girl. If you happen to grab the key in the middle, congrats, it’s twins!Before reading the test I picked up a key by the smallest part. Girl.
Old Wives Tale #16: Mayan Tale
The Mayan tale adds the mothers age at conception and the year of conception. If the result is a even number then mom is having a girl. If the result is an odd number then a boy is on the way!Result: 2,037. Boy.
Old Wives Tale #17: Drano Test
The drano test combines a tablespoon of Drano and urine together. If the mixture turns green, it’s a girl. If it turns blue, it’s a boy.Yeah, I'm not ready to do this one yet, lol.
Old Wives Tale #18: Acne
If you have acne while pregnant, it’s a girl. It’s thought that acne during pregnancy is caused by the extra hormones.My skin has been very dry, no acne. Boy.
Old Wives Tale #19: Cravings
People believe that if you are craving salty foods while pregnant, you can count on having a boy. If you crave sweets, fruit, and orange juice, you are having a little girl.I feel like my biggest cravings have been cheese and pineapple. Girl.
Old Wives Tale #20: Smell of Garlic
If a pregnant woman eats a clove of garlic and the smell does not come out of her pores, it’s a girl. If the smell seeps out of her pores, it’s a boy.I'm not going to eat a clove, but everytime I eat something with garlic, my husband swears he can smell it on me. Boy.
Old Wives Tale #21: Ultrasound
I’m not sure that this falls under ‘old wives tales’, but, as with anything, ultrasounds may not be accurate all of the time.
Too early to tell.
Too early to tell.
Old Wives Tale #22: Skin under Left Eye
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” in the white part, you’re having a girl.I see none. Boy.
Old Wives Tale #23: Previous Kids
This tale only applies if you have had previous kids. If you have and that child’s first word was momma, you will have a girl. If your first child’s first word was dadda, you’ll have a boy.No previous children (who I heard speak).
Old Wives Tale #25: History of Parent’s Kids
You can find out the sex by going off of your parent’s kids and the order. If you are the first born, you will have what your mother had but starting with her second child. If you are the middle child, you will have what she said, but starting with the third child. If you are the last child, you will have what your mother had in the exact order. I think this tale only works when the parent’s had three kids.My mother only had one child, but my dad had three. If that counts then I'll have a boy first.
Old Wives Tale #26: Time of Conception
The person that is most aggressive in bed at the time of conception is the opposite of what the baby will be.How can you tell who is most aggressive with IVF?! lol
Old Wives Tale #27: Legs
If your legs get really big, you’re having a boy. If your legs stay in shape and lean, it’s a girl.Too early to tell.
Old Wives Tale #28: Moodiness and a Little Pecker
If you are really moody, you are having a girl since you have another extra girl hormones in you. Your pregnancy will make you smile and be more happy if you are having a boy because there’s a little penis inside you.This is really creepy, but I would say I'm happier. Boy.
Old Wives Tale #29: Bread
If you eat the ends of bread, it’s a boy. If you eat the middle of the load, it’s a girl.I eat the middle. Girl.
Old Wives Tale #30: Chinese Gender Chart
The Chinese Gender Chart claims to have an accuracy rate of over 90%. It is based on how old the mother is at conception and the month that she conceived.Boy.
Old Wives Tale #31: Mom’s Beauty
Basically you are having a girl if your beauty disappears during pregnancy. It is said that the girl “steals” the mother’s beauty. If you think that pregnancy has never made you look more beautiful, you might just be having a little boy.Still no supermodel, but boy.
Old Wives Tale #32: Dream of Sex of Baby
If you have dreams that you are having a boy, you will have a girl. If you dream about having a girl, it will be a boy. Dreams show the opposite of what you are having.I've had dreams about twins and both sexes.
Old Wives Tale #33: Clumsy vs. Graceful
If the pregnant woman is graceful throughout her pregnancy, she’s having a girl. If she becomes clumsy, she’s having a boy.Clumsy by far. Boy.

71% of the time, the mom-to-be knows what she is having.I'm not going to say just yet!
