What the Old Wives Tales Say

Here's what the old wives tales are telling me:
  • If you prefer sleeping on your left side, you'll have a boy. Right side? A girl.  I like sleeping on both sides - so this could go either way.
  • Extreme nausea means you are having a girl. I had very bad nausea but never threw up so this may mean girl.

  • If your hands are dry, you are having a boy; soft -- expect a girl. My hands are what they normally would be during the winter months - slightly dry.  Could just be the time of year, or could mean boy.
  • If you're craving citrus, you're having a girl. Ummm - YES for citrus.  So this means girl.
  • If your skin breaks out, expect a girl. I've talked about the bad acne - so this means girl.
  • If you feel graceful during pregnancy, you'll have a girl. Clumsy? It's a boy. I feel normal which is fairly clumsy.  Althought I've been super cautious and avoided tripping/falling as often.
  • If you gain weight in your face, it means you're having a girl. Don't think I've gained weight in the face yet.
  • Craving salt? Expect a boy. A little something sweet? You're having a girl. SWEET stuff - so this means girl.
  • If your right breast is larger than the left, you are having a girl. If the left is larger, a boy. I haven't noticed that either one is larger than the other.
  • Feeling extremely moody? Expect a girl.  Umm I am quite bitchy these days, so this means girl.
  • If baby is low, expect a boy. High, it's a girl. I think I'm carrying more high.
  • If you're carrying in front, it's a boy. All around your middle? A girl. I feel wide - which would mean girl.
So hmmmm - this really could go either way on Monday!  Baby, please cooperate for mommy and daddy so that we can start planning for you! 


  1. Heh. Some of those were definitely true for me (citrus, acne, sweet) but some weren't (no nausea, slept on my left). Regardless, the wives tales are fun to read and think about!

  2. you better send me a text message with the news!

  3. I am sitting on the edge of my seat today!!!

  4. Nanette - When I read your comment over the weekend, I thought it'd be so funny if I ended up with a girl like you. Isn't it funny how people crave similar things - I wonder what it is?!

    Kim and Spaceys - you two are so supportive - love it!


Leave me your thoughts!
