Baby Gender Myths
These are some of the most popular baby gender myths on how you can pick the gender of your baby. These baby gender myths claim to enable you to tip the scale of possibilities to the gender of your choosing. A lot of people start to have preferences for a specific gender after having three children of the same gender.

While most baby gender myths are simply mumbo jumbo, some baby gender myths actually seem to be rooted on some scientific basis and does seem to be rather logical. But as I am not a doctor, what you are about to read isn’t a medical advice whatsoever. It’s just a personal opinion and should be treated as nothing more. Whether you’d want to follow these baby gender myths or not is entirely up to you, however I assure you that you won’t be endangering your health or costing yourself money if you do decide to give these ‘methods’ a shot.

Family History

Believe it or not, your family history plays a role. The gender pattern of your grandparents’ kids and your parents’ kids will affect the gender of your children as well.
The Aggressor

According to one myth, you can influence your baby’s gender by being the more aggressive party in sex. If the woman is the more aggressive one in bed, then come conception, the gender of the baby will be a boy; the exact opposite of the aggressor’s gender. And vice versa.

Chinese Gender chart

This myth is based on the month of conception and also your age when you conceive. This is one of the more popular baby gender myths as a lot of people adopt this method and is said to have over 90% success rate. The mythology behind this method is that it utilizes lunar calendar chart that was discovered in a 700 year old royal tomb.
Dada or Mama

If the very first ‘word’ your child said was “dada,” then you will have a boy. But if it’s “mama” instead, your next child will be a girl.

The Timing

If you want to have a baby girl, you must have sex long before your ovulation day. Girl sperm are more resilient than boy sperm, which is why the long period before ovulation will ensure the male sperm dies out before reaching the egg. Conversely, if you’re trying for a boy, you would want to have sex as close to ovulation date as possible. Also, some say that woman must reach her orgasm before the man.

Sexual Position

It’s a fairly popular idea that some sexual positions can result in specific gender. Meaning that there are gender specific sexual positions. For example if you’re trying for a boy, you and your partner need to utilize a position which allow deep penetration, in the hopes that after ejaculation the boy sperm will reach the egg quicker. And if you want a baby girl, you must use gravitation to your advantage by choosing woman on top position. This will place the boy sperm at a disadvantage because boy sperm are less resilient than girl sperm.

Gender Specific Diets

Consuming lots of meat products will help you conceive a baby boy. On the other hand, sticking to vegetables and fruits will help your chances of conceiving a baby girl. In fact, go vegan for a while.
Medical Procedures?

Modern medicine also has a say in gender selection, Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) being one example. The chances of determining the gender of a baby is quite high as PGD transfers the embryo with fixed gender directly to a woman’s uterus. Alas, this method is extremely costly and invasive, that’s why only a handful of couples are willing to give this method a shot.
If you’re already pregnant and wish to know the gender of your baby without visiting the doctor’s office, there are some myths you can try. Some of these myths will undoubtedly bring a smile to your face as they seemingly don’t make much sense when you first read about them. However, these myths are harmless and may possibly surprise you, especially when an ultrasound confirms the results. Suddenly, these myths have some weight to them. 

You can predict the baby gender is a boy when you check baby heartbeat lower than 140 beats per minute. You’re felling blooming when pregnant. After your trimester you feel suffer from morning sickness. When you check your right breast is bigger than your left. Look at the mirror for a minute you can see that your pupils bigger than first you look at the mirror. You become more interest to salty food or protein, such as meat and cheese. You become more quickly feel cold in your feet. Your skin becomes dry. Your legs produce more hair during pregnancy. If your belly hang high probably you have a boy.

So according to this particular myth, you can be sure you’re having a boy if:

•    Your heartbeat is at 140 beats per minute or lower
•    If you’re generally feeling happy and ‘blooming’
•    After your first trimester you suffer from morning sickness
•    Your right breast is somewhat bigger than your left
•    Your pupils are bigger
•    You develop an interest in salty and high protein foods, such as meat and cheese.
•    Your skin feels dry
•    Cold sensation on your feet
•    Your legs are somewhat hairier during pregnancy
•    Your belly hangs

Those are telltale signs that you’re having a boy.

On the other hand, you’ll have a girl if:

•    You feel your left breast is bigger than your right
•    Your heartbeat is faster than 140 beats per minute
•    You feel your skin is softer
•    Cravings for sweets such as juice, candy and fruit
•    Your belly hangs low

Baby Gender Fact

Nothing beats an ultrasound in knowing the gender of your baby though. So at your 20th week of pregnancy, visit your OB/GYN. A routine ultrasound provides pictures of your baby, determining the baby gender with 95 - 100% accuracy. Although, there have been many cases where Mom and Dad still end up with something different than what they were expecting in the delivery room!

Try Amniocentesis

The purpose of this prenatal test (taken between weeks 16-18) is to check for genetic disorders and chromosomal abnormalities. This is a heavy stuff, but the good news it tells you the gender of your baby with 100% certainty.

For more heavy stuff use CVS

This test, chorionic villus sampling, checks for chromosomal abnormalities such as Down’s syndrome or Trisomy 13. Ideally performed between weeks 11-12, it also can tell you your baby’s gender with 100% accuracy as well.

So there you have it; the surefire way of determining the gender of your baby. The ball is in your court now, whatever you decide to do with the information given is entirely up to you. Just remember that it’s always a good idea to not get your hopes up too high when trying out these oldwives tales.

Good luck!
