The majority of couples find out what their baby’s gender is when that 2nd trimester ultrasound rolls around. But over the years, multiple methods and theories have developed in determining the sex of a child. After all, ultrasounds to determine baby’s gender didn’t become standard until the late 80s!

Here are 5 ways to find out the gender of your baby … maybe:

1.  Chinese Gender Predictor

The Chinese gender predictor is supposed to predict if you are having a girl or boy. Hey, there is a 50/50 chance this is correct!

2. Wedding Ring Gender Prediction

Find out what your baby’s sex is by this very scientific way (sarcasm at it’s best, people). Take your wedding ring, a thread and put the thread thru the wedding ring. Now dangle the wedding ring over the mom’s pregnant belly while lying down. If the wedding ring swings in a circle motion – it’s a GIRL! If it moves back and forth like a pendulum, it’s a boy!

This “gender revealing method” also supposedly works with a pin or a needle.

Again – 50% chance of this being correct!

3. Your Eyeball Knows!

Look in the mirror and pull down the skin under your LEFT eye. Look at the white part of your eyeball. Do you see a vein that looks like a “V” or branches, if so, it’s a GIRL!

50% chance people…

4. How Are You Carrying Your Baby?

Look at your self in the mirror, full length  you’re beautiful. Now turn to the side, is the baby high or is the baby low? How are you carrying your baby? If it’s high, congrats! It could be a girl! If you are carrying low, congrats! It could be a boy!

5. What is Your Baby’s Heartbeat?

Next time you go to the doctor, take note of your baby’s heartbeat.

If the baby’s heartbeat is between 140-160: it’s a girl (maybe)! If the baby’s heartbeat is between 120-140: it’s a boy (again, maybe)!

There is one way that is 100% guaranteed and works every time  when your baby’s delivered, you’ll know for sure!

Did any of these old wives’ tales predict your baby’s gender correctly?
