Am I having a boy or a girl? - Old Wives Tales Predictions

A few weeks ago, we found of the sex of our baby due in June. Before we found out, I thought it would be fun to test a few old wives tales and see how they measured up to the actual sex of the baby. Below are a few of the results I got.

1. Ring Test Dangle a chain with a charm over your palm. If it swings back and forth: you are having a boy, in a circle, you are having a girl. 
Prediction: Girl 

2. Acne If you have acne while pregnant, it’s a girl. It’s thought that acne during pregnancy is caused by the extra hormones. 
Prediction: Girl 

3. Cravings  If you are craving citrus fruit and orange juice, you are having a little girl. 
Prediction: Girl 

4. Mood Changes If you are really moody, you are having a girl since you have another extra girl hormones in you. Your pregnancy will make you smile and be more happy if you are having a boy.
Prediction: Girl

5. Penny Test Lick your thumb, then wipe it on the penny and press the penny against a wall. Hold it with the same thumb for 30 seconds. If the penny sticks to the wall, your are having a girl, if it falls, a boy.
Prediction: Boy

6. Chinese Gender Chart This ancient method uses how old the mother is at conception and the month that she conceived.
Prediction: Girl

7. Even and Odd
Legend has it that the Mayans determined a baby's sex by looking at the mother's age at conception and the year of conception. If both are even or odd, it's a girl. If one's even and one's odd, it's a boy.
Prediction: Boy

8. Side You Most Rest On If a pregnant woman prefers to lay on her left side, she’s having a boy. If she prefers resting on her right side, she’s having a girl.
Prediction outcome: Girl

9. Morning Sickness If you had a smooth pregnancy with no morning sickness, it’s a boy. If you were sick or felt really nauseous during your pregnancy, count on a girl.
Prediction: Girl

10. Protein If you crave meat and cheese, count on a boy.
Prediction: Boy

11. Palm Test If you are asked to show your hands, it's a boy if you keeps her palms down and a girl if you shows your palms up.
Prediction: Girl

GIRL = 8
BOY= 3

Stay tuned because on Friday I will be revealing the sex of our baby but in the meantime, what's your prediction, boy or girl?
