5. Sugar cravings

Women often experience new cravings when pregnant. Some people think if a woman craves sugar, she may be carrying a girl, whereas salty cravings may indicate a boy.

There is no scientific evidence to suggest that food cravings during pregnancy can indicate the sex of the baby.

6. Stress levels

A women’s stress levels before she conceives may influence a baby’s sex. A 2012 study found a relationship between levels of the stress hormone cortisol and the male to female birth ratio.

In this study, women with high levels of cortisol were statistically more likely to have a girl.

A 2013 study found that in the two years following an earthquake on the Greek island of Zakynthos, the male birth rate dropped. Researchers suspected that increased stress levels in the island’s community affected the birth ratio.

More research is needed to properly understand the link between stress and the sex of unborn babies.

7. Oily skin and dull hair

Some people believe that having oily skin and dull hair may mean a woman is carrying a girl.

This belief is not scientifically based.

On the other hand, changes in oil production or hair appearance during pregnancy may relate to hormonal changes or changes in diet.

8. Baby’s rapid heartbeat

Some people believe that if the baby’s heart beats rapidly, they may be female.

However, researchers debunked this myth decades ago in a study that found no significant difference between the heart rate in male and female fetuses.
