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.
