Hi Everybody,

I have heard that there are some old wifes methods of guessing wether it is a boy or girl during the pregnancy...

Some say that if the pregnant woman gets not so pretty than this is a girl as in ... that girl is taking away some beauty from the mother. Sound silly I know.

Other was that the woman gets marsk on the face.. than this is a girl.

other one was that if the line on the belly is from pubic bone to the belly than is a boy if beyond than it is girl.

Do you know if any of this is true and maby you have heard of different one?

oh, this is cute..
I just found this while browsing the net:


"Why are newborn boys are weightier than their female counterparts? That's been a big question for a long time. Recently, researchers discovered that women who were carrying a boy ate about 10 percent more calories than women carrying a girl. Find out more here! "

Gosh if thats true I hope I don't get pregnant with a boy. I could have eaten a whole cow during my 2nd trimester. My husband would sit there amazed when we went to a chinese buffet and he was stuufed and I was still going for at least another hour!

LOL I'm with Krissimace!

I've eaten so much during my pregnancy! I have been such a huge pig! And I'm expecting a girl! I'd hate to see how I eat if I get prego with a boy! If that is true anyway.

About the old wives tales: I've heard TONS of them. Don't rely on them, they are basically hit or miss. They are right about 50% of the time lol!

According to the old wive's tales I'm having a girl. According to the Chinese gender predicter, it's a girl. According my ultrasound, there's no doubt about it. It's a boy.

I will see how it works. But this is my first child so I have to wait to see if it will work.

The test was wrong for me also. 1st time said I was having a boy..had a girl, then vice versa.

I tried it with few family members and friends and it worked in 18 out of 20 cases. It is best to check with somebody who is already born :-) since the ultrasounds sometimes are wrong. Try this and see.
