Gender Prediction Quizzes??

These always crack me up... With our first two dragons, I had ultrasounds done. Now that we have one of each gender, we're not going to bother. But, I do these "gender prediction quizzes" with each baby anyway. Usually I come out about 40/60 in one direction or the other--usually the *wrong* direction, I might add. *grins* This baby's quiz is no exception... The results??


Congratulations!

You have a 43% chance of having a boy.
And you have a 56% chance of having a girl.

And Here's Why...

You are carrying the extra weight around the hips and bottom, so it's a girl.--but I did this with my first (a boy), and not with my second (a girl).

The hair on your legs is not growing any faster during your pregnancy, so it's a girl.--mine grows fast, pregnant or not (blame it on sorta-PCOS).

Girls are carried high. You are going to have a girl.--I carried my boy *really* high, and my girl *really* low. Go figure.

Sleeping in a bed with your pillow to the north indicates that you will be having a boy.--I've slept the same way with both prior pregnancies.

Your feet are colder than they were before pregnancy. You are having a boy.--my feet are *always* cold, just ask my long-suffering husband!

You prefer the heel of a loaf of bread. You are having a boy.--Preferring the heel *might* be pregnancy related, or it might just be that I like home-made bread crusts!! :-D Either way, I liked them with both prior pregnancies.

Dad-to-be hasn't been gaining weight along with Mom-to-be, so it will be a girl.--OK, so I didn't *really* make him get on the scale, but he didn't gain a substantial amount with either prior pregnancy.

The maternal grandmother doesn't have gray hair (dyed or natural), so a girl will be born.--This one is just weird. I know gals whose moms had grayed early, yet had all girl grand-babies, and natural colored grandmas with all-boy grand-kids. Funny, I always though *Dad* cornered the market on boy-vs-girl babies decision. LOL

You didn't have morning sickness early in pregnancy, so it will be a boy.--I don't do morning sickness. Period.

You are looking particularly good during pregnancy. Therefore, it must be a boy, because girls steal their mother's looks.--I don't ever look "particularly good." *snickers* However, my skin stays "looking good" because I drink tons of water. Y'all try it. Water is good for you--and contrary to popular quotes, drinking the water will *not* get you pregnant. ROFL.

Your chest development has not been very dramatic during pregnancy. You should expect a boy.--Gee, isn't that a bit personal?? Frankly, there's not a lot of difference between pregnancies. ;-) You'll just have to take my word for it. LOL

Since the sum of the mother's age at conception and the number of the month of conception is even, it will be a boy.--Yeah, OK.

A needle on a thread held over you belly moves from side-to-side, so it will be a girl.--My boy did the side-to-side, and my girl did the circles. Getting the idea that my kids are contrary??

Your urine is a bright neon yellow color, so you will have a boy.--Taking extra Vit. A or most any pre-natal vitamin has the same effect.

You are craving sweets, which means that it is a girl.--Funny, I *craved* sweets with my boy (and I do mean CRAVED); but with my girl I was constantly putting half-eaten bowls of ice cream back in to the freezer "for later." Trust me--this was NOT normal behavior for me, just while carrying my little girl. This pregnancy is back to sweets-as-preferred... er... normal. :-D

Your nose hasn't changed during pregnancy, which indicates a girl.--Yeah, OK, whatever. My nose doesn't change when I'm pregnant, neither do my feet for that matter.

You have been craving meats or cheeses, so it is a boy.--This is a universal sign of being pregnant for me. I'm a meat-and-potatoes kind of gal anyway, but really do crave protein anytime I'm pregnant. Not a gender-differential for me.

Your baby's heart rate is 140 or more beats per minute, so it's a girl.--My boy's heart rates were always above 140, and my girl's were always below 140. Go figure. (This one's are high again.)

You must have orange juice every day, so it's a girl.--Maybe I just want vitamin C to help absorb the iron in my pre-natals?? I couldn't *stand* OJ while carrying Little Miss. Don't remember from BD#1s pregnancy. OJ is OK this time around though...

You are not having headaches, so it's a girl.--Bwhahahaha. I didn't get headaches with my boy; but I had the worst headaches ever while carrying my little girl. Too many female hormones in one body, if you ask me!! LOL (Or maybe I'm the obstinate one. :-D)

Your belly looks like a basketball, so it's a boy.--Check. First one (boy) was a BB. Second one (girl) was a watermelon. Back to a BB for this one. Hey, they've got to get one or two correct, right?! :-)

You show them the palm of your hand, so it's a girl.--Eh, I'm always palms-up. Not a pregnancy thing for me.

You use the body of the mug, so it's a girl.--No, I have big hands, so I *always* use the body of the mug. Incidentally, that's also why I don't like little .22 pistols. Their grips are always WAY too small for my hands. Gimmie a .357 any day of the week. ;-)

So.... while they say this one is 56% more likely to be a girl than a boy... For 7 of the 13 questions that predicted BD#3 will be a girl, what they said predicted "girl" were characteristics of my previous boy's pregnancy but NOT of my girl's. Sorta conversely, for 9 of the 10 above questions that predicted BD#3 will be a boy, what they said predicted "boy" are general pregnancy characteristics for me--things I had in common with both prior pregnancies, or that just describe my life in general. Only ONE of the "boy-predictor" questions was true of my pregnancy with my boy. *snickers* So, yeah, I think I'm the obstinate one.

The final--prior track record adjusted--tally of the 23 characteristics is... 8 votes for boy and 15 undecided. ROFL And for the record I do think BD#3 is probably a boy; but don't tell the baby, just in case it's more obstinate than I am. LOL
