For many moms-to-be, one of the most exciting parts about pregnancy is trying to guess the gender of the baby. Whether or not you've decided to find out the gender for sure, it can be fun to "test" whether you're having a boy or girl via the plethora of old wives tales that have circulated for years. But how reliable are these myths about predicting the sex of your baby? You probably won't be too surprised to find out that the majority of them have little to no scientific evidence behind them. But, believe them or not, these myths are actually pretty fun to read about, especially if you're pregnant.
As for me, a handful of these myths actually did ring true for my two pregnancies. But, a few of them fell short of being right. So my conclusion is that, as with most things in life, you take these gender-prediction myths with a grain of salt and for what they really are, which is nothing more than an old wives tale to take a little bit of the mystery out of pregnancy. And to give random passersby on the street something else to fill you in on while they're caressing your bump.
