Even though it is exciting and fun to try and predict whether the baby you are carrying is a boy or girl based on a few of the famous gender myths ad folklores out there, not a single one of them has ever been establish to succeed. Here is a contination of the list of myths in gender prediction.
Cravings.Â Folks tell us that you are having a baby girl if you crave for a lot of sweets; and a baby boy if you crave salty food. Whereas it would be easy if you could depend on your craving for candies and chocolates as a positive sign that a baby girl is just around the corner, there is no solid proof that sweet tooth longings and other cravings has a relationship to the gender of your future offspring. As a matter of fact, the jury is still on the hunt as to whether cravings even exist at all! So itâ€™s safe to say to not rely on your cravings, whether actual or imagined, to dictate to you if you should buy baby stuff in blue or pink color.
The Pendulum or Circlular Turn. If you swing your wedding ring or a needle over you tummy, and it moves about in a strong circular movement, then you’re having a baby girl. If it swings or moves back and forth like the pendulum of a clock, then you’re having a baby boy. This specific way of gender prediction has a mechanism pretty much like a ouija board. Mini muscle quivers which you have no control over, brings about the ring or needle to shift in a distinct motion – a feeling that can be creepy to say the least. But it does not convey a point pertaining to the sex of your future child.
The Chinese Conception Chart.Â The conception chart is common among the Chinese in predicting if you’re having a baby boy or a girl. The Chinese pregnancy calendar or chart is frequently used for gender prediction; an ancient tradition that a lot of mothers believe in. Many folks say it can precisely predict an unborn babyâ€™s gender. The accuracy of the Chinese birth chart is believed to be as high as 97%. Whilst it has a status for being greatly accurate in China, it basically hasn’t been able to withstand and stand up to the same scrutiny in North America. A copy of this chart can be found online.
So if these myths and folklores constantly miss the mark, why do mommies (and daddies) continue turning to them over and over again? According to the professionals, there are two reasons for this: first, is the fact that you’ve got a 50% chance of being correct every time you predict your baby’s sex; and second, is the fact that you’re more likely to recall the times you succeeded rather than the times you failed! Their piece of advice? If one of these “examinations” persuades you to stuff the nursery with pink attractive dresses and decorations, make sure to keep the receipt!
