Sex Prediction Tests To Try Out
Baby's Sex Prediction Tests for you to try
*Just a quick note before we get started: Some of the links used in this blog post talk about "determining gender", but we are actually referring to "determining sex" where XX is female and XY is male.
I'm officially at the 10 week mark! Which means sore boobs, nausea, and I'm only a couple of weeks away from finding out if I'm having a boy or a girl. It's one of the things I look forward to the most in pregnancy. I know that no matter what I end up having, they will be so loved by the entire family, but still, the anticipation of finding out soon gives me so much excitement. I've had a few inklings and dreams here and there about what I might have, but until I get my official results back from my ultrasounds, there's some other fun methods I've been looking into:
This method has been used for centuries and is a chart that is based on a combination of maths, astronomy and cultural beliefs. For this method, you'll have to know an estimated date of conception, as the chart uses this date and the mum's age to predict the sex. CLICK HERE for the Mayan Calendar Gender Predictor Chart
This is another prediction method that has been used since ancient times. Similar to the Mayan Calendar Gender Predictor, it also uses the mum's age and date of conception; however it is based on the Lunar Calendar. CLICK HERE to try it out
The Ring Swing Test
This superstitious method has been passed down for generations and claims to be able to determine the sex of the baby. All you need for this one is a ring (traditionally, the wedding band is used) and some string. Put the string through the ring and let it dangle over the baby bump. If the ring moves in a circular motion - it's a girl! If the ring moves back and forth - the baby is a boy!
Baking Soda in Urine
Yup. You read that right. For those of you who are really dedicated (and don't mind peeing into a cup), this is another method you might be keen to try. Put some baking soda into a cup (highly recommend using a disposable one), then pee into it. If the baking soda fizzes - it's a boy!
These methods are by no means scientific or evidence based, but they make for great fun and it will be interesting to see how they compare to the official results, which will be sent to me in a couple of weeks. I'll be sharing more about my pregnancy journey on our Instagram stories, so if you aren't already, make sure to follow us. Let me know in the comments, based on these predictors, what are you having?
