Probably the most exciting thing next to finding out you are pregnant is finding out the sex of the baby. It just makes everything so much more real.
I still remember when I found out that my son was a boy. I was just 14 weeks along and we were accompanying a friend to an ultrasound for her son. My husband jokingly asked the Ultrasound technician to show us our baby’s gender and he went for it! He said he wasn’t technically allowed to, but he could have his student/intern do it and it’d be considered a “teaching” moment. And just like that we were able to find out 6 weeks early (and for free!) that we were having a little boy!
This time around (Yes, you heard me right! We are expecting!) I don’t think we’ll get so lucky. Typically they don’t do an ultrasound until 20 weeks unless you are willing to pay extra for one sooner.
Being the impatient people we are, we are trying all sorts of methods to see if we can predict our baby’s gender sooner.
Here are the methods we have tried:
1. The Ring Test
2. The Chinese Calendar
Results: Boy or girl, depending on conception date
3. Heart Rate per Minute Test
Results: To be determined
4. Urine Color Test
5. The Linea Negra
6. Your skin
7. The Pillow Test
8. The Eye Test
9. The Baking Soda Test
10. Thick & lustrous or thin & dull?
11. If you have a baby already, what was their first word?
There you have it! 7 votes for Girl, 3 Unknown, & 1 for Boy. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see!
What tests have you guys tried? Were they accurate?
UPDATE: IT’S A GIRL!!!
