Stolen from Smonk You...

1.21.2010
Before we found out if we were having a boy or a girl, a lot of people would guess according to old wives' tales. I found a great list of these on smonk you and thought I'd see if the old wives knew what they were talking about:



Short time to conceive = Girl
The baby's heartbeat was clocked at over 140 = Girl
According to the Chinese gender chart = Boy
I sleep on my left and right side = Boy or Girl
I feel nausea = Girl
I'm craving citrus = Girl
I am gaining weight = Girl
I'm breaking out a bit = Girl
I'm feeling clumsy (well, I've always felt clumsy) = Girl
Weight gain in my face = Girl
I'm craving salty stuff (I always crave salty stuff) = Boy
I'm moody = Girl
I'm carrying low = Boy
My hair has become thinner and dull = Girl

Grand total:
Girl = 10
Boy = 3
Indeterminate = 1

And of course, I'm having a girl! The funny thing is, when Kenny did this on his blog, he got 7 for a girl and 7 for a boy - 50/50. Even funnier, his baby's legs were crossed during the ultrasound, so him and his wife have no idea what they are having!

So maybe there is something to all of this old-wivery and tale-telling. I'd love to hear if this test worked for anyone else!
