So we went for our 20ish week scan (a bit later than 20 weeks, but never mind) and all is well with the sprog, it has the right bits in the right places and it was all doing what it should be. HOWEVER the little bugger had its legs crossed at the knees so we still have no idea if it’s a girl or a boy! Now the decision to find out has been taken out of my hands, I’m kind of okay with it. Don't get me wrong, I'd love to know, but I guess this is the only TRUE surprise in life now! As soon as we were on the bus back from the hospital Sam started googling old wives tales, and most of my friends have given me their predictions too! I thought I'd do a bit of ‘research’ then when the baby pops out I can look back and see what was right and what was wrong!
carrying high = girl. carrying far forwards = boy
heart rate over 140 bpm = girl, under = boy (ours was exactly 140 when we heard it on Thursday, helpful!)
craving sweet things = girl, craving savoury or sour = boy
a girl ‘steals her mothers beauty’. so spots/blemishes = girl
swollen legs/feet = boy, no/little swelling = girl
clumsier in pregnancy = boy, grounded and not dropping things = girl
larger right breast = boy, larger left breast = girl (what if they’re the same!?)
bright yellow wee = boy, dull wee = girl
and this Chinese gender calendar could be completely accurate, but its too confusing to bother with right now!
Any more to add to the list? & if you’ve had a baby were any of these correct?!
