Mayan Gender Forecasting
The ancient Maya were skilled mathematicians, so it is not surprising that their system is based on numbers. To test the accuracy of this prediction approach, record the year your child was conceived and your age at the time of conception.
If both numbers are odd or even, you may anticipate a female. A male will be born when one of the numbers is even and the other is odd.
Morning Sickness and Gender
Some believe the severity of a pregnant woman's morning sickness will determine her child's gender. If you are nauseous and turning green with every scent, then you are carrying a female child. If morning sickness is mercifully absent or you have minor issues with vomiting, you are carrying a boy.
Height Evaluation of a Bump
This is a classic based on English folklore and a little bit of old-fashioned thinking. It is often thought that if you carry your baby low, you will have a male. Why? Since males need more freedom, they are carried down and in front. If you're holding your baby high and across your body, it's because she's a female and needs more protection.
Sweet or Salty Cravings
If you grab those pickles, you can expect criticism. Others claim that your pregnancy desires are precisely proportional to your gender. Others believe that wanting salty or savory dishes indicates the impending birth of a boy. If you desire sweets, a daughter is coming your way.
Skull Gender Test
This hypothesis entails studying the form of your baby's skull to predict whether it will be a boy or a girl. The skull is the second most reliable indicator of sex in forensic anthropology.
Male skulls are said to be more blocky, with a square chin and strong temple curves. The female head tends to have a fuller chin with a more tapered crown.
The Leg exam
Everyone knows that during pregnancy, healthy mothers gain a little weight. The French use this pregnancy indicator to determine the baby's gender.
According to legend, a boy is on the way if the legs acquire weight and begin to resemble tree trunks. You will be a proud mother of a girl when you have not gained any weight in your legs.
The Red Cabbage Test
To do an at-home baby gender test, cut up some fresh red cabbage and set it in a pot of water. Bring the water to a boil, then allow it to cool before pouring a portion of the cabbage water into a cup. Combine equal portions of your first morning urine sample and cabbage water.
See the color change as you swirl the liquid. Pink or red means you will have a bouncy baby boy. Purple indicates a gorgeous little girl.
Brazilian Gender Prediction
Brazilian mythology states that if a pregnant woman cooks up a chicken’s heart, then she can tell if her baby is a boy or a girl. This is based on how the heart responds to the heat.
If the egg opens, splits, or swells while cooking, it's a girl. If the woman's heart does not open, divide, or enlarge, she is likely carrying a boy.
Baking Soda Gender Test
Consider this exam a do-it-yourself scientific experiment. To accomplish this, combine a few tablespoons of baking soda into a transparent cup with your pee. If your urine bubbles, you are carrying a boy; if it remains flat, you are bearing a girl.
Moroccan Gender Forecast
First, the pregnant woman lies on her back, and an insect is dropped on her stomach. The gender of the unborn child depends on how the bug falls.
Congratulations, it's a boy if it falls on its feet! If the insect falls on its back, pink seems to be in your future.
The Ring Test Hypothesis
Very likely, your grandmother tried it: This is one of the oldest and most prevalent theories in existence. To do this test, attach your wedding band to a thread or hair strand and hold it over your stomach while lying on your back. If the ring swings from side to side, it indicates a boy, but if it swings in a circular or oval direction, it means a girl.
The Ramzi Method for Gender Prediction
This approach predicts a baby's gender based on the positioning of the placenta using an ultrasound image taken as early as six weeks. This notion was proposed by Dr. Saam Ramzi Ismali, who thinks that a left-developing placenta indicates a female pregnancy. If it expands to the right, a male is expected.
China's Gender Prediction Test
The Chinese gender predictor chart is perhaps the most popular non-medical gender prediction tool. It has a fascinating past, and no one knows where it originated. But because it's just for pleasure, it shouldn't matter, right? The Chinese gender prediction chart uses the month of conception and the mother's age at the time of conception to identify the baby's gender.
Hungarian Gender Prediction
This silly test occurs when a parent-to-be carefully pokes their finger into the middle of a spider web. Then they take their finger out to show a hole, and based on the spider's behavior, they can predict the child's gender.
If the spider does nothing, a girl is on the way, but if it fixes the hole, then expect a baby boy.
The Nub Method
If you take a profile photo of your kid and examine the region between the legs, you will see a little nub. This tubercle is a portion of a growing infant that will become the penis or clitoris.
It is a boy if that nub is at an angle of 30 degrees or more. If the nub is horizontal or pointed downward, the baby is female. There is some scientific evidence to support this. In a 1999 study of limited sample size, researchers determined that the nub hypothesis was 70% correct at 11 weeks and 98% accurate at 13 weeks.
Nevertheless, a larger and more recent research concluded that the nub hypothesis is not a valid method for predicting gender. You may ask your OB-GYN for their opinion, but at this point, you're better off getting a blood test or waiting until your 20-week ultrasound image.
