Boy or Girl?

Evan and I will undergo our big ultrasound this afternoon to learn more about our baby – hopefully everything looks normal, and we will be able to glimpse at whether we’re having a son or a daughter.  Prior to the test, I took an online quiz that is supposed to predict (based on old wives’ tales) the sex of the unborn baby. I’d say the site got it exactly right:


You have a 50% chance of having a boy.
And you have a 50% chance of having a girl.

And Here’s Why…
You are carrying the extra weight out front, so it’s a boy.
Boys are carried low. You are going to have a boy.
Sleeping in a bed with your pillow to the north indicates that you will be having a boy.
Your feet are not colder than they were before pregnancy. You are having a girl.
You refuse to eat the heel of a loaf of bread. You are having a girl.
Dad-to-be hasn’t been gaining weight along with Mom-to-be, so it will be a girl.
The maternal grandmother doesn’t have gray hair (dyed or natural), so a girl will be born.
You didn’t have morning sickness early in pregnancy, so it will be a boy.
You are looking particularly good during pregnancy. Therefore, it must be a boy, because girls steal their mother’s looks.
Your chest development has not been very dramatic during pregnancy. You should expect a boy.
Since the sum of the mother’s age at conception and the number of the month of conception is even, it will be a boy.
A needle on a thread held over you belly moves from side-to-side, so it will be a girl.
Your urine is a dull yellow color, so you will have a girl.
You are craving sweets, which means that it is a girl.
Your nose hasn’t changed during pregnancy, which indicates a girl.
You have been craving meats or cheeses, so it is a boy.
Your baby’s heart rate is 140 or more beats per minute, so it’s a girl.
You have no desire for orange juice, so it’s a boy.
You are having headaches, so it’s a boy.
Your belly looks like a basketball, so it’s a boy.
You show them the palm of your hand, so it’s a girl.
You use the body of the mug, so it’s a girl.

Okay, so I’ll admit that I didn’t actually hold a needle suspended by a thread over my abdomen (who comes up with these things??), so I just fibbed on that one. Anyway, we’ll know soon enough!
