Old Wives' Tales

I'm pretty sure I ovulated yesterday, so the two week wait begins...This time, we've been trying the pillow trick (I prop my hips up on a pillow afterwards to let gravity help out). I have also read several places that Mucinex (NOT Mucinex DM) thins your fluids and produces more secretions. I have only been taking 1 or 2 doses in the evenings after work. I think it might have helped, but I'm not sure. I don't know if either of these tricks really work, but I'm crossing my fingers.

According to an ancient Chinese calendar, which figures in the mother's age and year of conception, I will be having a boy. Darn. I want a girl first. Here are some other Old Wives' Tales about gender determination I found on Storknet.com:

  • Suspend the pregnant woman's wedding ring on a chain over her belly. If it swings back and forth, it's a girl. If it swings around in circles, it's a boy.
  • Urinate in a glass jar with a tablespoon of Drain-o in it. If the mixture is green, it's a girl; if the mixture turns blue, it's a boy.
  • If the mother-to-be trips or falls over her own feet during pregnancy, it's a boy. If the mother is graceful, it will be a girl.
  • If you are pregnant with a girl, supposedly you will be more moody, emotional, and have worse morning sickness. You also crave salty food with a boy, and sweets with a girl.

The Chinese Calendar predicted that I would be having a boy...and when my mom was pregnant with me I was supposed to be a boy...I assure you Im NOT a boy, *giggle* and I am having a baby girl...so you never know. Im so stubborn, there are very few ol' wives tales that I believe...but here's hopin you have a bun bakin' in the oven *wink*
Im not going to lie...when cleaning up, I laied on the bathroom floor and put my legs up (like you do when your a little kid)...after doing that...SUCCESS! Good Luck! Keep us posted :o)

PS...I believe the morning sickness theory...because Oh My God if I didnt think it was ever going to end...I had morning sickness almost 24 hrs a day 7 days a week, and nothing seemed to help.
