Curious to know the gender of your baby? These signs will tell!

Pregnancy is full of guess games! From guessing the sex of the baby to the traits he/she will incur from the parents, women are curious about a whole lot of things during the nine-month journey. However, the gender of the baby is one thing every woman wishes she knew.

And that’s what Old Wives’ Tales are for! We all grew up believing that eating carrot improves eye sight and it’s always safe to wait an hour before you ate after swimming. Similarly, our grannies had some age old tricks to find out the gender of the baby as well. Here are 10 ways to guess if it’s a girl or a boy!

Sleeping position

Pay attention to the side you sleep on, during your pregnancy. Comfortable sleeping on the left? Chances are you are carrying a boy. If you are happier sleeping on the right? Then it could be a girl!

Upset stomach

Girls are not always sweet! They can cause a little more havoc than boys, when inside the womb. So if you are literally hugging the toilet and bringing out pretty much anything you eat, blame it all on your little princess.

Food cravings

Food cravings tell a lot about the gender of the baby. If you are primarily craving sweets, such as chocolate and candy, or dairy products, especially milk, then gear up for a princess themed parties and pink laces.

On the other hand, if you prefer sour, salty, spicy or protein-rich foods, then it simply means you are carrying a super-hero in there!

Adult acne

It’s not always that pregnant women are glowing and gorgeous! Acne makes its way even when you are pregnant and that is also one of the signs you are carrying a girl. Hormonal fluctuating in very high among women who are carrying girls, so daddies gear up for some extra mood swings.

Graceful or clumsy pregnancy

While hormonal fluctuations, adult acne, and nausea can be a sign of a baby girl, women carrying girls glide through the day with ease. Whereas, if you are carrying a boy, eat a little extra and remember patience is a virtue!

Weight gain

Pregnancy is a period when women gain weight and there is no doubting that. However, if the weight gain is predominantly on your face, making your face look like an oversized melon, you are carrying a girl.

High or low belly

A lot has been said and heard about the position of the belly during pregnancy. But did you know this can tell the sex of your baby as well? If you are carrying low, expect a boy. If you are carrying high, congrats, it’s going to be a girl!

Baby weight

If your baby’s weight is all on the front, leading to a protruding belly, you are carrying a boy. However, if the weight gain is spread across your belly, then expect a girl.

Baby’s heartbeat

If the baby’s heart beats more than 150 times per minute, you’re pregnant with a girl. Less than 150, it’s a boy.

Breast size

If your right breast is larger than the left while pregnant, you are having a girl. If the left is larger, it’s a baby boy.
