The shape of the belly, the amount of nausea you have or the heartbeat of your baby inside the womb, can tell you if what you are expecting is a boy or a girl.
There are many myths, ancient tricks and some more scientific evidence that can give you some idea before knowing the final sex of your child through an ultrasound. In this video, we tell you some homemade tricks to know if the baby you are expecting is a boy or a girl.
Some are true but there are others that are not so. The truth is that many pregnant women resort to these beliefs to know if their baby will be a boy or a girl:
The shape of the belly
It is often said that pregnant women who have a more round belly are waiting for a female baby, that is, a girl, while pregnant women who have a more pointed belly, more pointed, expect a boy .
How does the pregnant woman's face
Other things that can determine the sex of the baby you expect is how your face is. If you are beautiful or less beautiful. They say that being beautiful, that your skin and eyes shine, means that you will have a girl. And when she is not so pretty, very puffy, the baby will be a boy. However, some say the opposite is true.
What does the pregnant woman want to eat
Another issue that they say reveals the sex of the baby the pregnant woman is expecting is feeding, that is, what the future mother wants to eat. They say that if you feel like eating fruits, vegetables, healthier food, the baby may be a girl. While if you like salty and stuffy food more during pregnancy, you may be expecting a boy.
More or less nausea during pregnancy
And regarding nausea, they say that when the pregnant woman is very nauseous, she may expect a girl. Whereas if the pregnancy is calmer with little nausea, you may be expecting a boy
The pendulum test
The pendulum, chain, needle, pendant ... they say it can predict the sex of the baby. You have to hang by a chain or thread, above the belly of the pregnant woman. Next you have to raise and lower the pendulum three times. AND observe how the pendulum moves. If it moves from side to side, it may be a boy, while if it moves in a circle it may be a girl.
Another legend that circulates on the subject of whether the baby is a boy or a girl is that of the baby's heartbeat, in the womb. They say that a girl's heartbeat is much faster (more than 140 beats per minute), while a boy's heart beats slower (less than 140 beats per minute).
The bicarbonate thing
There is also a belief that bicarbonate is used. A little bit of bicarbonate is poured into a glass and then about 3 tablespoons of the pregnant urine. If the baking soda is bubbling, you may be expecting a child. If it does not bubble, it may be a girl.
Then we have the classic and traditional Chinese table, a very ancient Chinese method. The Chinese table is very easy to use, you just have to look for the box according to the exact month in which you conceived and cross it with the age you were at that time. If the box is pink, your baby will be a girl. If the box is blue, your baby will be a boy.
Is it possible to choose if the baby you want to have is a boy or a girl? According to scientifically validated studies, it is possible. The sperm that carry the Y chromosome (those that generate males), are much faster but more fragile. While the sperm that carry the X chromosome (which girls generate), they are slower, stronger and live longer.
What do we mean by that? That if you are looking for a boy, you have to plan sexual intercourse at the time of ovulation or at most 24 hours before ovulation, or 1 or 2 days after ovulation. While if you want a girl, you have to consider relationships like between 2 and 4 days before ovulation, so that it takes more time to reach the egg. This method is based on the womens menstrual cycle and in her fertile days.
In the end, what will really tell if the baby you are expecting is a boy or a girl, is the ultrasound that you can do around the 20th week of pregnancy.
