Gender Prediction

So after our big ultrasound on Wednesday, there has been a lot of speculation amongst the two of us, as well as amongst friends on Facebook. The ratio of "It's A Girl!" to "It's A Boy!" seems fairly even right now, but it will be very interesting to see how that all works out as the next 20 weeks go by.

For the record, I am still thinking GIRL...and Mr. Lukie is totally thinking BOY. 

I thought it'd be 'fun' to do one of the gender prediction things I've seen float around on other blogs...

Sleep Position
Pay attention to which way you lay down in bed tonight. If you prefer sleeping on your left side, you’ll have a boy. Right side? You're pregnant with a girl.  Right - GIRL.

Upset Stomach
Little girls aren’t always sweet. Extreme nausea means you are having a daughter. I had it easy - BOY.

Soft or Dry Hands
If your hands are dry during pregnancy, you are having a boy; soft—expect a girl. Drier than dry - BOY.

Food Cravings
Your favorite pregnancy foods may tell you what sex the baby is. If you’re craving citrus while pregnant, you’re having a girl. No citrus cravings - BOY.

Adult Acne
If altering hormones makes your skin break out, expect a girl. Looking like a teen these days - GIRL.

Graceful or Clumsy Pregnancy
If you feel as though you’re gliding through the day, you’ll have a girl. Stumbling? It’s a boy. Gliding, for once - GIRL.

Face Weight Gain
If your face gets fuller, it means you’re having a girl.  Fuller, unfortunately - GIRL.

Sugar and Spice Food Cravings
Craving salt during pregnancy? Potato chips, pretzels, and popcorn means a boy is on the way. Need a little something sweet? Ice cream, chocolate, and candy means you’re having a girl. Sweets, sweets, sweets - GIRL.

Mood Changes
If you’re experiencing pregnant mood swings, expect a baby girl to arrive soon. Mood swings in full effect - GIRL.

High or Low Pregnant Belly
If you’re carrying the baby low on your stomach, expect a boy. If it’s high, you’re having a girl. Low - BOY.

Baby Weight
If you’re carrying the baby in front, it’s a boy. Is the baby weight spaced all around your middle? It’s a girl. In front, thank goodness - BOY.

Pendulum Test
Dangle a chain with a charm over your palm. It swings back and forth: boy. In a circle: girl. Circle - GIRL.

Model Your Hands
“Show me your hands.” If you would hold your hands palms up, it’s a girl. Down? You’re having a boy. Palms up - GIRL.

Toddler Advice
Get baby advice from a nephew or from a friend’s little boy. If a toddler boy shows interest in your belly, you’ll have a girl. If he ignores you, it’s a boy. Ignores, completely - BOY.

Eat Garlic
Guess the baby’s sex by eating garlic. If the smell seeps out of your pores, it’s a boy. If there’s no scent, it’s a little girl. No scent - GIRL.

Key to Pregnancy
If you pick up a key by the round end, you’re having a boy. If you pick it up by the long end? A girl. Round end - BOY.

Even and Odd Numbers
If your age and year of conception are both even or odd, it’s girl. One even and one odd means a boy. I was 28 and it was 2011 - BOY.

Baby’s Heartbeat
If the baby’s heart beats more than 150 times per minute, you’re pregnant with a girl. Less than 150, it’s a boy. 149 at the last appointment - BOY.

Stress Test
A child tends to be of the same sex as the parent who is less stressed at the time of conception.  It's a toss up, neither of us were stressed at all - NEUTRAL.

Dream Meanings
If you dream about having a girl while pregnant, you will wind up having a boy and vice versa. Girl dreams abound - BOY.

Breast Size
If your right breast is larger than the left while pregnant, you are having a girl. If the left is larger, it’s a baby boy. No details needed - GIRL.


Looks like we'll have to wait until Birth Day to find out ;)


  1. These always crack me up, because w/ both of my pregnancies they were totally opposite. For instance, I craved citrus the most with Q. Had worse breakouts w/ Q. My face was fuller w/ Q. It's still fun to do.

    Chinese gender charts were right with both of mine, and with all of my Mom's pregnancies.

    Good news is that you will either have a boy or a girl! ;)

  2. Fun! I hope you don't mind if I steal this for my own blog! I'm interested to see what the stars predict for me :)

  3. How cute! Although, I CRAVED oranges like crazy, got a huge fat face, had a fetal heart rate over 150 and ended up with a boy sooo..maybe those aren't completely true ;) Either way, it's still fun. Can't wait to see what you're having. We'll all be on pins and needles while you're in labor :)
