24 Old Wives Tales for Predicting Baby Gender

5 min


Have you ever heard of old wives tales to predict if you are having a boy or girl?  Here are some fun ways to predict if you are having a boy or girl.

For most people, all that matters is to have a healthy and hearty baby, whether it is their first or their fifth one.  Although, many parents do get curious to know if they are carrying a boy or a girl while others like to keep it a surprise until the baby is born.

You might have noticed a rise in gender reveal parties.  This is a way many parents choose to celebrate their baby and have a party with their family and friends.

Other parents like to know what gender they are carrying so when they shop for new baby clothes, they can shop in “gender-specific” colors such as blue for a boy or pink for a girl.

In the old days there wasn’t the ability to get ultrasounds or blood tests and so as patterns developed people began to rely on Old Wives’ Tales to predict the gender of the baby and although none of these tales have ever been scientifically proven, they are still fun to try.

While these Old Wive’s tales aren’t necessarily accurate, they are still fun to try.

Well, today I will share some old wives tales to see if you or a loved one is having a girl or boy! This is a fun way to predict the gender!

Now, know that it isn’t always correct, so don’t fully count on the gender it says!  This is just for fun.

All of these will give you a 50/50 chance at being correct. It is fun to test these out before you find out the gender from the doctor, to see which are right!

OLD WIVE’S TALES TO PREDICT BABY GENDER

CARRYING HIGH OR LOW

This is one of the more popular old wives’ tales that most pregnant women hear throughout their pregancy.  According to legend, if you are carrying the baby high, then it means start buying pink!  If you are carrying low, then it time to start buying blue!

BABY’S HEARTBEAT

This is again quite a popular old wives’ tale about predicting the gender of the baby.

If the baby’s heart rate is more than 140 beats per minute, then it may be because you are carrying a girl.

If the heart rate is more sedate pace, which is under 140 beats per minute, then it more likely that you are carrying a baby boy.

EATING BREAD

If you find that you are eating the ends of bread, it is more likely a boy.

If, on the other hand, you are skipping the ends and eating the middle first it is a girl.

SHAPE OF THE BUMP

This is yet another popular one, that if you are carrying all your extra baby weight out in front and it looks like a basketball, then it is a boy.

If you are carrying the pregnancy weight all over your body, then it means it is a girl.
