old wives tales...and cast your vote on baby's gender!

Well,'s time to weigh in on Baby Two's gender.  
Take the blog poll on the top right sidebar for funsies!  We will find out the gender at our ultrasound January 7th...if Hubby allows it!

So...will Cormac have a little sister to watch over and protect?  Or will he have a brother to play with and fight with and compete with?  (Oh, I know that this will not predict their actual dynamic...just play along with my stereotypical gender role speculation.)  

Wants a bunch of Old Wives' Tales to confuse you and skew your judgement?

I thought so!  Below are all the ones that I've found on the good ol' internet....
Chinese Birth Chart: girl {there are different ones that say the opposite...I'm going by the one I used with Cormac...which was accurate.}

Ring Test: girl {with Cormac it said boy}

Toddler Interested in Belly: girl

Craving sweets: girl

Carrying Low: boy...but when I carried high I had a boy.

Skin Good/Same: boy...but with Cormac my skin was horrible

Increase of Moodiness: girl

Bad Nausea/Morning Sickness: girl

Mom's Beauty - Stolen! : girl

Big boobs: girl

Motherly intuition: girl

The Mayan Tale: boy

Dreams:  girl {well, I have had only one, and the baby was distinctly girl.  although some OWT's say you have the opposite!}

Previous Child's 1st Word is Dada: boy

Heart rate above 140 - girl

Daddy Not Gaining Weight:  boy {well, so far.  with cormac he did, so I'm not sure of the accuracy here.}

Mama is Graceful (vs Clumsy) : girl {can still easily do all my yoga poses!!!}

 So now you can vote...
and let me know of any old wives tales I might have missed in the comment section!!!    


  1. Boy! Nuthin' but boys for you ma'am!

  2. You know....I voted for girl.....but I am starting to change my mind......I will stick with my vote, but I am torn.....

  3. Oh, I wanted a girl so badly. I thought my increased morning sickness would be a sign of a girl. But no. I have three boys....

  4. too these! my friend at work is expecting & we were just looking up "gender predictions" after school today, haha! it does look like these point towards a girl, but who knows... they both have their pros & cons, but i voted 'boy' -- there were SO MANY other OWT, we got overwhelmed... the side you sleep the most on, the color of your urine, the size of your legs, how fast your hair grows, how you eat your bread {???}... craziness! who knows! :D

  5. It looks like you had more answers for girl than boy, but I am not buying little pink things based on that.
