View Full Version : 'old wives tales'
Has anyone read those old wivs tales about what gender your baby will be?? dose anyone believe in any off them like how high or low ur carrying? im interested in what ppl think??
I was told about one that some cultures believe in is that if you become more masculine looking (lose your looks i guess you could say!) then you are having a boy. This was told to me by a lady who predicted i would be having a boy when pregnant with my first (hmm, not really a compliment!) and i did!
If you are having a girl you become more feminine/prettier, i was told yesterday by another lady who is from the same culture that i was having a girl this time round.
Well i will find out hopefully tomorrow if she was right!!
Hey that's funny, about feminine masculine, I had a friend who just seemed to send waves of feminine energy, I think everyone just assumed she was having a girl because it was unfathomable that it would be a boy.
I craved savoury (or more, couldn't eat sweet) and had a boy.
I carried high and tight.... But that I'm sure had much more to do with being very fit and active during my pregnancy and being 20/21. My boss at the time was pregnant and she carried low and was big and she had a boy also. And she craved sweets. So disproved both ;)
According to a lot of old wives tales (heart rate, craving sweet/savoury etc) I would have assumed I was having a girl but so far 3 scans have confirmed a boy! So I do believe they really are just old wives tales! :$
Well the lady was right! I am having a GIRL! :cloud9:
Wow, the old wives tale about 'looking more feminine means girl' sounds interesting, my sis is UTD so I will pay attention to that one. As for me, a midwife told me my bubs had a heart rate which usually meant a girl, (she said in her opinion 75% chance of having a girl), but I had a boy. I also craved sweets which usually means girl too!
I was so sure I was having a boy because every wives tale said boy...but at my 20 week scan they said they were sure it was a girl....so in the end, I still think you are stuck with the 50/50 chance they could be right or wrong.
I can say though that the "Nub Theory" from my 12 week scan proved to be right. According to that, it was a girl...but I was still sure it was a boy.
mum had 3 completely different pregnancies and all girls
DD1 i carried high and tight, only showing at 7 months. (age 21-22)
DD2 i carried very out front, was showing at 13 weeks. (age 25-26)
This bub, im barely showing at all (Im 23 weeks) And its a boy. (Age 27-28)
my looks didnt change at all with any of them.
So while i was young and fit with DD1, im older and definatly not as fit this time around.
