This an easy baby gender prediction method to try. Take a pin, needle, or wedding ring and attach it to a thread or strand of hair. Hold the dangling item over mom to be's belly while she is lying down. If the needle or wedding ring swings in a strong circular motion, you will be having a girl. If it moves in a to and fro motion like a pendulum, you will be having a boy.
An alternate version of this baby gender prediction method is to dangle the needle or wedding ring over the expectant mom's wrist instead of belly.
The Carrying Method
This Old Wives' tale gender prediction method actually makes a little bit of common sense. The sex of your unborn child is determined by the way the pregnant woman is carrying the child. If the child is being carried high in the woman's womb then it is certain to be a girl. However, if it seems like it's being carried low then the assumption that it is a boy.
The Drano Test
A strange gender prediction method that sounds crazy enough not to be true involves the use of Drano and your urine. Drano crystals should be bought and placed into a glass jar. Your first morning urine should be used and it should be poured directly onto the urine into the glass jar. However, you better stay back in case a harmful smell or unusual reaction occurs between the two. After about 15 seconds the Drano should change colors. If it happens to turn a brownish color then you are about to give birth to a baby boy. If the Drano doesn't change colors, then you're having a girl.
One belief that has been around for some time is that babyís fetal heartbeat differs for boys and girls. If youíre having a girl, the fetal heart rate will be above 140; a boy will have a heart rate below 140, so goes the belief.
Some of the most popular gender-guessing techniques revolve around how the mother-to-be looks. Does she have acne? A pregnancy mask (marked by brown patches along the cheeks, chin and forehead)? Is her nose widening? Some believe those signs indicate a girl. The logic here is that a baby girl floods momís body with twice the amount of female hormones.
Drinking cough medicine before you ovulate will make you more fertile.
The theory being that the expectorant ingredient in some cough medicines that thins the mucus lining of your lungs, will also thin your cervical mucus making it easier for sperm to penetrate through your cervix and fertilize an egg. It has not been proven that thinner mucus actually makes you more fertile.
Youíll conceive more quickly if you have intercourse during the day with the lights on.
While male sperm count is generally higher in the mornings, thereís no clinical evidence that having the lights on or daylight has any bearing other than maybe raising the excitement level!
Having sex everyday increases your chances of getting pregnant.
You can have sex all day everyday, but unless youíre ovulating you wonít get pregnant. According to the New England Journal of Medicine, a major study found no difference in pregnancy rates between couples who had sex daily and those who had sex every other day.
Keep him cool.
While itís true that sperm counts rise in cooler temperatures, it takes at least two months for cooler temperatures to positively affect the sperm so rapid cooling, as with an ice pack, will hardly help. However, staying out of the hot tub and sauna, avoiding long, hot baths and wearing boxers instead of briefs may help.
Having sex early in your fertile period will result in having a boy, later will result in a girl.
The ďreasoningĒ behind this myth is that sperm with Y chromosomes (male) swim faster than sperm with the X chromosomes (female), and are able to reach the egg earlier in its journey to the uterus (i.e.: right after ovulation). Although it sounds believable, a New England Journal of Medicine study found nothing conclusive to this theory.
Riding a bike will lower a manís sperm count.
Maybe if he rides professionally, hundreds of miles a day, the heat and pressure may have some affect but it has never been clinically proven.
