gender predictions

I find out my baby’s sex around 20 weeks, I’ve been going every 4 weeks on a Thursday so my logic concluded I will find out the sex on January 15, 2015. The suspense is killing me!

Like any first time mom, I’ve been doing research on many myths on how to predict gender. None of these should be taken seriously, of course, as they are not backed up scientifically (however I did put an asterix next to the ones that have some type of merit or positive feed back from moms..)

They just folklore (old wives tales) passed  down for generations. I’m very logical, but couldn’t help myself, 8 weeks feels like forever away! I still want to do the draino test and Intelligender, but they cost money 😉


These haven’t changed, I’ve always been more of a spicy and salty (cheese !!!!) fan, but I’ve been repulsed by sweets, which is supposed to signal:


Heartbeats Per Minute (BPM):

 8 weeks: 166

12 weeks: 150


Baking soda test*:

Didn’t fizzle


Chinese Calender*:




Boy. (most early pregnancy show low though)

Shettles method*:

Girl. (I prefer not to comment on that night lol)

Morning sickness:

Not sure how to answer this because I have only thrown up once and only had nausea caused by lack of food/water. I would still say no.


Ring test*:







Mayan Tale:

My birthday is 09/19/1989: 24  ( 2 weeks after conception I turned 25)


Concieved: 2014



Garlic Test:


(I love garlic, and I had made fresh garlic bread and seriously  could smell it for days even after 2 showers!! Gross!!)

Skull Theory*:


(It’s hard to tell though and it really should be undetermined, because I look like my dad and the baby  I think looks like me. It also shares both male and female theories.)



Mommy intuition: 

Boy. (This is hard to say because I just want a boy so bad)

Final tally:



Silly 🙂

  1. Congrats on the Pregnancy! I love your blog so much….I have 2 little girls myself…I wanted to introduce myself. I started “mommy blogging” a few months ago…My fav routine to get my energy back are yogurt facials, running in the morning, my favorite “preggy” bars which were a huge part of my healthy pregnancy diet plan that I buy at sprouts or online and post preg as well, lots of Kumbucha, chia and yoga…I love blogs to and Instagram. Ok look forward to more blogs. Thanks Jenny….
