As soon as you actually find out that you are pregnant , the ultimate questions start , especially the ''Is it a boy or girl'' question and I for one know too well that daunting feeling where your having to wait for what feels like a lifetime to find out.
Over my past pregnancy's I have given the odd few a try and to be fare they have been pretty spot on using the old wives tale methods.
This time I thought it would be a great idea to get two lists together , one for boy predictions and the other for the girl predictions and see which side was highlighted most with all my baby's and my own symptoms.
I actually only ever remember two of them which were the wedding ring on the thread and the heartbeat rate one but when I searched for a list I found there were in fact so many I could make an eventful evening of the testing them out so that is exactly what I got on with doing.
I ensured I had everything prepared , grabbed my notebook and pen and all the bits and bobs needed for each test and went one by one through the whole list.
Old wives tales for pregnancy are just a little insight (although not completely accurate) as to whether you are carrying a boy or girl. To me it just seems a lot of fun and a great way to get yourself even more excited until the big day eventually arrives and baby is born or you decide to find out on your 20th week scan.
I am very impatient so for me I will be finding out at our scan in just a little more than 3 weeks so therefore this is the reason I thought I would test to see if these are indeed accurate or really are just a myth that can not be relied on.
Please remember this is all a bit of fun , please don't rely on any of these being accurate because even during scans people have been told it is one sex and when it is born they have been given the total opposite and those tests were from actual doctors consultants or sonographers and you definitely can not change the sex of that little blessing already in your tummy .
Likely to be carrying a boy!
Likely to be carrying a girl!
So the old wives tales say that I am more likely to be having a girl but in all honesty , do we trust them enough to start shopping or is it really not all that reliable at all.
In a couple of weeks I will be getting the results from my 20 week scan so I will let you know the outcome but for now just remember it is all the fun of being pregnant and the sex can not truly be determined 100% until the birth of that little blessing.
Have you tried any of these , if so , were they correct?
