Old Wives Tales for determining sex of baby…

The Mayans determined the sex of the baby by taking the mother's age at conception, and the year of conception. If both numbers are even or both are odd then it's a girl; if one number is even and one odd then it's a boy.—According to this I am having a BOY.

Eat a clove of raw garlic. If the smell of garlic seeps out of your pores, it's a boy. If no garlic smell is detected at all, it's a girl. This test is not for the faint of heart or stomach for that matter. Well, can you eat a clove of garlic? –Yeah right. I don’t eat garlic. Pregnant or not.

If your legs resemble tree trunks, it's a boy. If they're trim and fit, it's a girl.—Seriously? Women believed this? No comment here from me.

If you crave the heels of the bread, you will have a boy. If you like the middle, a girl is on the way.—I always like the middle of the bread so according to this its a GIRL.

If your hands start to get dry and chapped, it will be a boy; but if your hands are softer during pregnancy, you will have a girl.—My hands have been really dry lately. So according to this one it’s a BOY.

If you can't tell you're pregnant from the back, you're having a boy. If you look pregnant all over and from every angle, it's a girl.—Hmmm…if I’m a wide load its a girl? What a horrible thing to actually read in writing. However I will say for me, I do tend to spread EVERYWHERE when prego with girls and such is the case for this pregnancy. So I guess according to this tale…it’s a GIRL.

A craving for salty foods is a sure sign of a boy, and craving sweets is a sign that a girl is on the way.—What about both? Salty always goes good with sweet!

If you experience increased acne break out on the face and chest you will have a girl.—Not a problem for me so I guess it means I’m having a BOY.

Here is an experiment straight from Baby Predicting 101. . . urinate in a glass or jar with a tablespoon of Drain-O in it. If the mixture is green you will have a girl; if the mixture is blue, you will have a boy.—This one I will not do. It isn’t safe. And I already did a urine test to predict the sex of the baby. And that answer said…ooohhhh…betcha thought I would give this answer away didn’t ya?

Suspend a wedding ring on a chain over your belly. If it swings back and forth, it's a girl. If it swings around in circles, it's a boy.—I just did this one. According to this fun little test…I’m having a GIRL.

If a toddler boy shows interest in a pregnant woman, the mom-to-be is going to have a girl. If he ignores the pregnant woman, she will have a boy.—This one is hard. Connor says I’m his best friend. But other times…he calls me stupid. So I have no idea the answer for this one.

Which side do you lie on when you are resting? If it's the left, then it's a boy. If you're more comfortable on your right side then it's a girl.—I always face the outside of bed which for me means I lay on my left side. But I do lay on my right also. So again…no answer.

When someone asks to see your hand, if you show them palms up, it's a girl; palms down, a boy.—Don’t have too many people ask me for my hands these days. HA! No answer!

So according to all of these things:

7 are undetermined

3 say GIRL

3 say BOY

What about you? Have you ever done any of these crazy little things to see what you are having? Kind of fun actually. For me. Because I am tired and getting slap-happy. {insert image of me giggling at this point.}
