Boy or Girl? Gender Prediction Tests

This week I have my 21 week scan, when I’m hoping to find out the gender of baby no. 2! Obviously, I don’t mind what I have, but I just want to be able to buy baby clothes hee hee. Before we find out, I thought it would be fun to do those gender prediction tests. Not to be taken seriously, they come from old wives tales, but it’s fun to see the results. Gender-Prediction-Tests

I found these tests from NetMums, and tried them out. Here they are if you’re pregnant and want to have a go too!

  1. Did you have morning sickness in the first trimester? If so, this indicates you are carrying a girl. Me – No = Boy
  2. The ring test. Tie a piece of string to a ring and hold it above your bump. If it swings side to side, it’s a boy. If it swings in a circle, it’s a girl. Me –  I tied my wedding ring and lay down to test it. The ring swung in a circle = Girl
  3. Show someone your hands. When someone asks you to show them your hands, do you show them palms up or palms down? Palms up means a girl, palms down means a boy. Me – Palms up = Girl
  4. Are your hands dry? Dry hands indicate a boy, soft hands indicate a girl.  Me – Dry hands = Boy
  5. Pick up a key. If you pick up the top part, you’re having a boy. If you pick up the narrow part, it’s a girl. Me – Top part = Boy
  6. Are you craving sweet or savoury food?  Sweet means a girl, salty and savoury means a boy. Me – Savoury = Boy
  7. Chinese Gender Chart. Use this chart from NetMums to work out if you are having a girl or boy using your age at conception and the month of conception. Me – 36/Oct = Girl

  8. Is your bump an energetic one? An energetic baby in the womb indicates a boy, a chilled out one indicates a girl. Me – Energetic = Boy
  9. How is your hair and skin looking? Glossy hair and rosy skin indicates a boy, dull hair and spots indicate a girl (because the girl is stealing her mother’s beauty haha) Me – my hair is thicker and glossier than usual, and I don’t have spots = Boy
  10. Do you eat the heel of a loaf of bread? If you do, this indicates a boy. If you don’t this indicates a girl. Me – I hate the heel end! – Boy
  11. Are your legs hairier than usual? If the hair on your legs is growing faster than usual, this indicates a boy. If it’s the same, you’re carrying a girl. Me – Same – Girl


My results have come out as follows:

Boy – 7
Girl – 4

So 2 more for boy!

Let’s see what my actual scan tells us! I’ll let you know…

  2. I did the same when we were waiting to find out the gender of ours. Its a real eye opener around which ones are correct or not. Without wanting to give the game away some of the ones which were right for you were right for me even though we are expecting different genders! Thank you for joining us at #BloggerClubUK hope to see you again next week x
