In just a few short days we will be having our anatomy scan. This scan will measure all of baby’s bones and parts, but it will also reveal baby’s gender if he or she decides to cooperate. So, what do you think little critter will be?
Old Wives Tales
Tale: If you don’t like chocolate during your pregnancy (and normally do), it’s a boy.
Result: Inconclusive. I didn’t like chocolate during most of the first trimester. Now I do again.
Tale: Take off your shirt and check out your chest. If the left boob is bigger, it’s a girl. If the right boob is bigger, it’s a boy.
Result: Boy. However, my unevenness didn’t start during pregnancy.
Tale: Baby’s heartbeat higher than 150 bmp means girl, lower than 140 bmp means boy.
Result: Inconclusive. Baby was beating 145 at 13 weeks and 140 at 17 weeks. Critter likes to be difficult and not give a start answer!
Tale: Sweet cravings mean girl, sour cravings mean boy.
Result: Inconclusive. I haven’t had any cravings at all.

Tale: Sleeping on the right side of your body means girl, sleeping on left side means boy.

I took this quiz three times so far, seeing if how far along I am made a difference in how I answered the questions.
- Result: 56% chance boy at 5 weeks 2 days.
- Result: 60% chance boy at 13 weeks.
- Result: 53% chance girl at 19 weeks 1 day.

Fun With Numbers
Equation #1: Age (2+6) to your due date month (3) to your conception month (7). Even answer means girl, odd means boy.
Result. Inconclusive. It’s a girl at my current age but a boy at my age of conception.
Equation #2: Conception year (2011) + age. If both numbers are even or or it’s a girl, if one is even and one if odd it’s a boy.
Result: Inconclusive. It’s a boy at my current age but a boy at my age of conception.
Grand Totals: 5 inconclusive, 5 boy, and 3 girl.
