Wives Tales

God bless wive’s tales and the crazy europeans who have brought this tradition to America.  

It’s a boy if – 

  • You didn’t experience morning sickness in early pregnancy 
  • Your baby’s heart rate is less than 140 beats per minute 
  • You are carrying the extra weight out front 
  • Your belly looks like a basketball 
  • Your areolas have darkened considerably 
  • You are carrying low 
  • You are craving salty or sour foods 
  • You are craving protein — meats and cheese 
  • Your feet are colder than they were before pregnancy 
  • The hair on your legs has grown faster during pregnancy 
  • Your hands are very dry 
  • Your pillow faces north when you sleep 
  • Dad-to-be is gaining weight, right along with you 
  • Pregnancy has you looking better than ever 
  • Your urine is bright yellow in color 
  • Your nose is spreading 
  • You hang your wedding ring over your belly and it moves in circles 
  • You are having headaches 
  • You add your age at the time of conception and the number for the month you conceived and the sum is an even number

It’s a girl if – 

  • You had morning sickness early in pregnancy
  • Your baby’s heart rate is at least 140 beats per minute
  • You are carrying the weight in your hips and rear
  • Your left breast is larger than your right breast
  • Your hair develops red highlights
  • You are carrying high
  • Your belly looks like a watermelon
  • You are craving sweets
  • You are craving fruit
  • You crave orange juice
  • You don’t look quite as good as normal during pregnancy
  • You are moodier than usual during pregnancy
  • Your face breaks out more than usual
  • You refuse to eat the heel of a loaf of bread
  • Your breasts have really blossomed!
  • Your pillow faces south when you sleep
  • Your urine is a dull yellow color
  • You hang your wedding ring over your belly and it moves from side to side
  • You add your age at the time of conception and the number for the month you conceived and the sum is an odd number

This is a pretty crazy yet comprehensive list.  Anyone got other ones as I would like to know if a prince is entering the kingdom (doubtful) or another princess (likely).  

Hint….we (not quite me) are expecting.

    Congrats on your impending birth of little prince/princess. That really is great news 🙂 Good luck on getting the prince but princesses are awesome too!

    Thanks. I think human nature always make you want what you don’t have but I have to admit that I love having girls so far. I am going to stick with the 10 fingers/toes rule and just be grateful.
