I know some people prefer to wait, but the suspense is torturous to me and I couldn’t wait to find out what we were having. With the new Harmony testing it meant we got to find out as early as eleven week! But that didn’t stop me looking up every gender reveal test or old wives tale to try and predict what baby number two would be – not to mention mothers intuition.
Chinese gender prediction. A combination of age and the month you conceived.
= 26+June – Boy?
Heartbeat. According to legend, 140+ beats per minute indicates a girl, and below 140 a boy.
= Heartbeat was 166 at 8 weeks – Girl?
Cravings. Apparently if your craving sweets, it’s a girl. If you have to have salty or sour stuff, then it’s a boy.
= Just hungry all the time, no preference lol. ????
Skin. Rumour has it if you’re breaking out like crazy, blame it on your girl babe. The belief goes that girls steal their mother’s beauty, hence, those annoying zits.
Prediction quiz. I took several online ‘tests’ that asked pretty much the same questions.
= All said boy!
Morning sickness. Apparently if your morning sickness sets in early and is unbearable, you can blame a girl. If it’s mild and begins later then you can thank a boy!
= Nauseated twenty-four seven! Girl?
Mother’s intuition. I was absolutely 120% certain that Annabelle was a girl, so much so I bought girl clothing before 20 weeks. This time I wasn’t convinced but I was definitely leaning toward boy!
And drum roll please…
