How Tto Tell if You are Pregnant with a Boy or Girl Using Wives’ Tales

Most parents are excited to know the sex of their baby while it is still in utero. However, some do not really want to confirm the gender with a doctor. People often follow traditional wives’ tales to determine the sex of their baby.

Here are some old wives tales to determine if you are pregnant with a boy or a girl.

  • Observe what you eat. People often say that if you crave for salty food, chances are your baby is a boy. On the other hand, if you crave for something sweet, chances are your baby is a girl. If you crave for citrus fruits such as oranges, there is a big chance that your baby is a boy. If you feel like eating meat, chances are you have a baby boy. If you crave for vegetables, there is a possibility that your baby is a girl.
  • Observe your body. If you look radiant and beautiful, chances are your baby is a girl. On the other hand, if you have breakouts, your baby is a boy. If your face becomes rounder during your pregnancy, more likely your baby is a girl. Dry hands give you a possible baby boy while soft hands give you a possible baby girl. Observe your breasts. If the left breast is bigger than the right, then there is a possibility that your baby is a boy. On the other hand, if your right breast is bigger than the left, then you probably have a baby girl. Observe your baby bump. If it is perfectly round, then there is a high probability of you having a girl. But if you have a sharp baby bump, then chances are your baby is a boy.
  • Observe your husband. If your husband gains weight, chances are your baby is a girl. But if he doesn’t, chances are your baby is a boy.
  • Observe your actions. Frequent mood swings indicate that there is a possibility that your baby is a girl. If you sleep on left side, chances are your baby is boy. However, if you sleep on your right side, it is a girl. Dreaming of your child can also determine the sex. If you constantly dream of having a baby girl, there is a possibility that you are having a baby boy. Then again if you dream of having a baby boy, then it is possible that you are having a baby girl.
  • Check the heartbeat. Some say that if you check your baby’s heartbeat, you can determine the sex. A baby with more than 150 beats per minute is a girl. Conversely, a baby with less than 150 beats per minute is boy.
  • Remember your position. A funny wives’ tale is remembering how you conceived the baby. If you conceived the baby standing up, you will possibly have a baby boy. But if you conceived the baby while you are on top, then the baby is a girl.


Though it is fun to observe and remember these things to determine the sex of your baby, remember that it is not 100% reliable. Some believe in these things because some come true. It is important to consult with your doctor to guarantee the sex of your baby. But if you want to keep it a secret, then you don’t have ask the doctor. The important thing is to have a healthy baby.
