A Quiz! Oh La!

(Stolen from LentilLovin)

Boy or Girl Quiz:

Old Wives Tale #1: Heart Rate 
If the baby’s heart rate is above 140 bpm, it is said that the baby will be a girl. If it is under 140 bpm, then it will be a boy. 
     Prediction outcome: Girl (usually between 150-160)

Old Wives Tale #2: Shape of Belly
If you are carrying high with a big, round belly, you are having a girl. If you are carrying low with a smaller belly that sticks straight out, it’s a boy.
     Prediction outcome: Boy

Old Wives Tale #3: 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 outcome: Boy, a few minor breakouts but nothing noteworthy.

Old Wives Tale #4: Cravings
People believe that if you are craving salty foods while pregnant, you can count on having a boy. If you crave sweets, fruit, and orange juice, you are having a little girl. 
     Prediction outcome: Girl. GIVE ME ALL THE FRUITS.

Old Wives Tale #5: Skin under Left Eye
The eye test is when a “V” or “branches” appear when you pull down the skin under your left eye. If you see a “V” or “branches” in the white part, you’re having a girl. 
     Prediction outcome: Girl.

Old Wives Tale #6: Time of Conception
The person that is most aggressive in bed at the time of conception is the opposite of what the baby will be.  
     Prediction outcome: For the love of Christ my mother-in-law reads this blog I CAN NOT TALK ABOUT MY SEX LIFE.

Old Wives Tale #7: Legs
If your legs get really big, you’re having a boy. If your legs stay in shape and lean, it’s a girl.
     Prediction outcome: Girl. Chicken legs as scrawny as always.

Old Wives Tale #8: Moodiness and a Little Pecker (this one is odd, but funny)
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 because there’s a little penis inside you.  
     Prediction outcome: Boy. I haven’t had any hormonal rages yet. (Adam just read this over my shoulder and snorted. Then I yelled, “Oh really? What’s THAT supposed to mean?” and burst into tears. So maybe I should change my answer on this one?)

Old Wives Tale #9: Mom’s Beauty
Basically you are having a girl if your beauty disappears during pregnancy. It is said that the girl “steals” the mother’s beauty. If you think that pregnancy has never made you look more beautiful, a little boy it is. 
     Prediction outcome: Boy. Not to toot my own horn but I love how pregnant-Madeleine looks.

Old Wives Tale #10: Dream of Sex of Baby
If you have dreams that you are having a boy, you will have a girl. If you dream about having a girl, it will be a boy. Dreams show the opposite of what you are having. 
     Prediction outcome: Boy.

Old Wives Tale #11: Clumsy vs. Graceful
If the pregnant woman is graceful throughout her pregnancy, she’s having a girl. If she becomes clumsy, she’s having a boy. 
     Prediction outcome: Boy. My black toe and bruises up and down my shins are proof.

Old Wives Tale #12: 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.

Old Wives Tale #13: Dad’s Weight Gain
If the dad-to-be gains weight while you are pregnant, it’s a girl. If he doesn’t gain weight, you’re having a boy. 
     Prediction outcome: Girl; haha fat Adam.

Old Wives Tale #14: Breast Test
If a pregnant woman’s left breast is larger than the right breast, she’s having a girl. If the right breast is larger, it’s a boy.
     Prediction outcome: Girl.

Old Wives Tale #15: What Do You Think?
71% of the time, the mom-to-be knows what she is having. 
     Prediction outcome: I thought girl in the beginning. Now I find myself slipping into “he”. Who the hell knows. I don’t want to say either way because I don’t want my FIRST mother’s intuition to be WRONG.

Old Wives Tale #16: 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 outcome: Girl. (and might I add, jerk)

Old Wives Tale #17: Areolae
If your areolae (the part around your nips) have darkened, it’s a boy. If they haven’t, its a girl. 
     Prediction outcome: See #6, but substitute “mother-in-law” for “brother” and “sex life” for “nipples” (this sounds like an *awesome* mad lib)

Old Wives Tale #18: Protein
When a pregnant woman craves meat and cheese, count on a boy. 
     Prediction outcome: The two bags of deer jerky and tube of goat cheese I singlehandedly consumed last week answer this one for me. 

Old Wives Tale #19: Feet

     Prediction outcome: Girl? My feet are always cold.

Old Wives Tale #20: Headaches
If you are having headaches, you might be carrying a boy.
     Prediction outcome: Boy; but I’ve always had headaches.

Old Wives Tale #21: Baby Names
It is said that when you can only think of specific names for a boy or a girl, you will have that particularly baby. 
     Prediction outcome: Boy. I think we’re set on a boy name, still flinging around a few options for a girl.

Old Wives Tale #22: Urine
What color is your pee? If it is bright yellow, you will have a little boy. If your urine is a dull yellow, plan on a girl. 
Prediction outcome: I don’t take a pantone deck to the bathroom with me. No idea.

TOTAL GIRL: 9

TOTAL INCONCLUSIVE: 4

Wow. I swear I didn’t rig this. No help. NO HELP AT ALL.
