Boy or Girl? Old Wives' Tales Tell All

We finally find out Friday what we're having! I'm so thrilled and excited. I've been so patient the last few months knowing this day would be here before I knew it, but the last two weeks have been killer. I've been dying to know so I can start my shopping, registry, calling our baby by their name, etc. Only a matter of days before we find out now!

So here is a list of wives' tales and our outcome, place your guess at the bottom!

Heart Rate 
If the baby’s heart rate is above 140 bpm, it is said that the baby will be a girl. If it is under 140 bpm, then it will be a boy.

Shape of Belly
If you are carrying high with a big, round belly, you are having a girl. If you are carrying low with a smaller belly that sticks straight out, it’s a boy.

Ring Test
Using a strand of hair, hang a ring over your hand. You are having a boy if the ring swings back and forth and it’s a girl if it swings in a circle.

If you have acne while pregnant, it’s a girl. It’s thought that acne during pregnancy is caused by the extra hormones.

People believe that if you are craving salty foods while pregnant, you can count on having a boy. If you crave sweets, fruit, and orange juice, you are having a little girl.

Chinese Gender Chart
The Chinese Gender Chart claims to have an accuracy rate of over 90%. It is based on how old the mother is at conception and the month that she conceived.

The Mayans
They looked at your age at conception and the year your baby was conceived. If both are even or odd, it's a girl. If one is even and one is odd, oh baby — it's a boy

Side You Most Rest On
If a pregnant woman prefers to lay on her left side, she’s having a boy. If she prefers resting on her right side, she’s having a girl.

Dad’s Weight Gain
If the dad-to-be gains weight while you are pregnant, it’s a girl. If he doesn’t gain weight, you’re having a boy.

Morning Sickness
If you had a smooth pregnancy with no morning sickness, it’s a boy. If you were sick or felt really nauseous during your pregnancy, count on a girl.

Dry Hands
If the skin of your hands are dry, it's signs of a boy. If they're nice and soft, it's signs of a girl.
