Are you having a girl or boy? The sex reveal is probably one of the most exciting parts of your pregnancy.
If you’re hoping for a girl, you’re probably taking a look at all the clues — both anecdotal and otherwise.
If you’re carrying high, congratulations — it’s a girl! Or so the saying goes, at least.
But there could be another reason for a high belly. If it’s your first pregnancy and your body is in good shape, your stomach muscles,body shape, and how much weight you gain during your pregnancy will all play a role in how you’re carrying.
The sex of your baby has no impact on any of this. That means you can’t tell the sex just by evaluating your belly. Multiple pregnancies can also have an impact on the elasticity of those same muscles.
There’s a similar tale about where you’re carrying that baby weight. If your pregnancy weight gain is around the middle, it’s because you’re having a baby girl. All in front? A bouncing baby boy is on the way.
But again, how and where you carry is related to your body type, weight gain, and other physical factors. It won’t help determine your baby’s sex.
Listen closely the next time your doctor listens to the baby's heartbeat. According to some, a rapid rate of more than 140 beats per minute means you’re having a girl.
The heart rate of a baby girl is usually faster than that of a baby boy. But this is only true after labor begins. Before that, it’s the age of a fetus that really affects heart rate speed.
The saying goes that craving sweet things during your pregnancy is related to the baby girl you’re growing. If you’re dreaming of salty or sour snacks, you’re carrying a boy.
While there’s some suggestion that cravings during pregnancy can be related to deficiencies in specific minerals , there’s no connection between cravings and sex.
Your skin is oily. and you’re breaking out during pregnancy. Common wisdom explains that it’s because your baby girl is stealing your beauty.
In reality, you can blame your skin woes on hormones, not your baby possibly being a girl.
Conventional wisdom says that excessive morning sickness at any point during your pregnancy means you’re having a girl.
If you’re having unpredictable mood swings, it could be because you’re having a girl.
