Are you having a boy or a girl? (Old school style)

old wives tales, am I having a boy or girl, how can you tell if you are having a boy or a girl,

We’ve put together some of the myths that can recognise if you’re carrying a boy or a girl, old school style.

Believe at your own risk!

Crusts of bread

If you eat the crusts of bread then it’s a boy. If you prefer to eat the centre of a loaf you are expecting a girl.

Trust your nose

If your nose appears to be getting wider or bigger, it’s a boy!

Baby sapping your energy (and looks)?

This one’s very old school – if you feel your beauty disappears during pregnancy, expect a little girl. It is said that a girl receives her mother’s beauty throughout her pregnancy. If you think that pregnancy has done you a favour and feel you’ve never looked better, you might just be having a boy.

Skin trouble

If you have acne or breakouts while pregnant count on a girl. It’s thought that the extra hormones you produce when having a girl results in acne.

Scissors, wooden spoon, and a pink bow lead to…

Supposedly, if you out a pair of scissors and a wooden spoon beneath your bed and a place pink bow under your pillow while you sleep, you are more likely to conceive a little girl. Who needs to spend thousands on sex selection when we can do this?!

Carrying high

Check on Daddy’s weight

If Daddy’s weight remains the same throughout pregnancy, which means no losses or gains, you are expecting a boy.

Morning sickness?

If you suffered from morning sickness or felt really nauseous during your pregnancy, expect a baby girl. If you had a smooth pregnancy with little or no morning sickness, count on a boy.

Nipple changes

If you notice your areolae (the part around your nipples) have darkened in colour, it’s a boy. If they are staying the same colour, it’s a girl.

Cravings for protein?

If you notice cravings for proteins such as meat and cheese then it means that a baby boy is in the oven!
