List of 51 pregnancy old wives tales: Your baby’s sex revealed!

by Jane · 79 comments

 gender-old-wives-talesSince a long waiting period is involved before you can find out the sex of the baby you are carrying, pregnancy old wives tales can provide a little insight and most of all, they are fun.  All pregnancy old wives tales have a 50/50 chance of being correct, so why not have a little fun with them.  

I know that we can’t wait to find out what we are having.  Just a couple more weeks of waiting and then we’ll know if we are having a boy or girl, and if any of these pregnancy old wives tales were correct.  Try not to put too much faith in these old wives tales though; they really won’t be accurate and like I said, they are mostly for fun!

Here’s a list of 51 pregnancy old wives tales:

Old Wives Tale #1:  Heartburn

If a pregnant woman experiences heartburn throughout the 9 months of pregnancy, she’ll have a baby born with a full head of hair.  

Old Wives Tale #2: Umbilical Cord

If a pregnant woman lifts her hands above her head or does stretches above her hand, she will choke the baby because the umbilical cord will be wrapped around the baby.    The truth of this pregnancy wives tale is that the umbilical cord can wrap around the baby if the baby moves a lot while in the uterus, but it does not happen if you move a lot or stretch above your head.  The baby gets tangled in the umbilical cord in about 1/3 of all births, so it’s not so uncommon.

Old Wives Tale #3:  Cravings Curse

This old wives tale is fun to hang over Tarzan’s head.  Basically if anyone denies a pregnant woman whatever she is craving, they will get a sty in his/her eye.  Personally, I think all men should read this and always give into whatever us pregnant women want!  For their own benefit, of course.

Old Wives Tale #4:  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.  At our last appointment, the heart rate was 168 bpm, so maybe we’re having a little girl?

Old Wives Tale #5:  Ugly Baby

This wives tale is weird.  If a pregnant woman sees something ugly, she will have an ugly baby.  Um, ok.

pregnancy-old-wives-talesOld Wives Tale #6:  Coffee

If a baby is born with light-brown birthmarks, it is said that the mom drank too much coffee or had unfulfilled cravings while she was pregnant.

Old Wives Tale #7:  Sex

This old wives tale is actually not a myth.  Sex is healthy for most pregnant women and is also good in getting the cervix ready for labor.  If you are nearing or have past your due date, your OB might recommend that you start playing around in the bed.

Old Wives Tale #8:  Baths

Anyone who thinks that pregnant women should refrain from taking baths is crazy.  Baths are a-ok and even helpful when it comes to relaxing and easing some back pain.  The only thing that my OB said was to be careful that I didn’t sit in too hot of water.  She said that anything over 100 degrees was too hot and to be careful that my skin didn’t turn red.

This old wives tale began because it was thought that water would seep in to the baby and bring bacteria.  It’s been determined that water does not enter the vag. during a bath.

Old Wives Tale #9:  Wearing a Lei

This Hawaiian superstition relates to the lei causing the umbilical cord to wrap around the baby.  Of course, it’s crazy and makes no sense why you could not wear a lei.  

Old Wives Tale #10:  Boiling Water

Many people use to believe that boiling water was needed to be nearby the pregnant woman during labor.  There is not a real reason as to why boiling water played a role in childbirth.  Some believe the water was just a task to get the dad-to-be away from the labor, while others believed that it was used to sterilize the tools needed to perform the delivery.  No matter what the reason was, this is definitely just an old wives tale with no truth or importance to it.

Old Wives Tale #11:  Full Moon

A full moon was believed to cause a woman to go into labor and give birth.  

Old Wives Tale #12:  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.  

Old Wives Tale #13:  Ring Test

Using a string, hang your wedding ring over your pregnant belly.  You are having a girl if the ring swings back and forth  and it’s a boy if it swings in a circle.   

Old Wives Tale #14:  Shape of Mom’s Face

When your face gets fuller and rounder when pregnant, it means you’re going to have a girl.  If your face is long and narrow, it’s a boy.  

I think this is b.s. since women all gain weight differently.  However, that being said, my face has gotten rounder, so all signs point to a girl for this one.

Old Wives Tale #15:  Key Test

This test involves a key.  If you pick up a key at the top (the roundest part), you are going to have a boy.  If you pick up the key at the bottom (smallest part), you are going to have a girl.  If you happen to grab the key in the middle, congrats, it’s twins!  

Old Wives Tale #16:  Mayan Tale

The Mayan tale adds the mothers age at conception and the year of conception.  If the result is a even number then mom is having a girl.  If the result is an odd number then a boy is on the way!  According to this, we are having a girl.

Old Wives Tale #17:  Drano Test

The drano test combines a tablespoon of Drano and urine together.  If the mixture turns green, it’s a girl.  If it turns blue, it’s a boy.  

Old Wives Tale #18:  Acne

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

Old Wives Tale #19:  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.  

old-wives-tales-pregnancyOld Wives Tale #20:  Smell of Garlic

If a pregnant woman eats a clove of garlic and the smell does not come out of her pores, it’s a girl.  If the smell seeps out of her pores, it’s a boy.   

Old Wives Tale #21:  Ultrasound

I’m not sure that this falls under ‘old wives tales’, but, as with anything, ultrasounds may not be accurate all of the time.  In fact, one of my friends was told that she was having a boy.  A penis on the ultrasound.  Months later, it was determined that her little boy was actually a little girl.  I would have thought little girls could have turned out to be boys, but not the other way.  I guess there’s always room for error though. 

Old Wives Tale #22:  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.  I have a “V”, so one more point for a girl.

Old Wives Tale #23:  Previous Kids

This tale only applies if you have had previous kids.  If you have and that child’s first word was momma, you will have a girl.  If your first child’s first word was dadda, you’ll have a boy.  I can’t help you with this one since I have no previous kiddos.

Old Wives Tale #24:  Wooden Spoon, Scissors, and Pink Bows

Apparently if you put a wooden spoon and a pair of scissors under your bed and a pink bow under your pillow, you’ll have yourself a little baby girl.  I think this sounds like one of the craziest myths I’ve ever heard.  Anyone try it?

Old Wives Tale #25:  History of Parent’s Kids

You can find out the sex by going off of your parent’s kids and the order.  If you are the first born, you will have what your mother had but starting with her second child.  If you are the middle child, you will have what she said, but starting with the third child.  If you are the last child, you will have what your mother had in the exact order.  I think this tale only works when the parent’s had three kids.  

Old Wives Tale #26:  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.  In this case, we’ll have a girl.  (I’m not always boring in bed, but I had too much to drink on this night and I know that I was not very aggressive.)

Old Wives Tale #27:  Legs

If your legs get really big, you’re having a boy.  If your legs stay in shape and lean, it’s a girl.  I think it’s too early for me to tell on this one.

Old Wives Tale #28:  Moodiness and a Little Pecker

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.  Not sure how true this is, but it sure does make me laugh!

pregnancy-wives-talesOld Wives Tale #29:  Bread

If you eat the ends of bread, it’s a boy.  If you eat the middle of the load, it’s a girl.  I’ve never liked the ends of bread and always have eaten from the middle… Another point for a little girl.  

Old Wives Tale #30:  Chinese Gender Chart

The Chinese Gender Chart claims to have an accuracy rate of over 90%.  It is based on how old the mother is at conception and the month that she conceived.  This tale tells me that I’ve having a girl.  

Old Wives Tale #31:  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, you might just be having a little boy.  

Old Wives Tale #32:  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.  I’ve only had a dream that I was having twins, and there’s only one baby in there, so maybe there’s some truth to this…  or maybe it’s just a coincidence!

Old Wives Tale #33:  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.  

Old Wives Tale #34:  Toddlers

If a toddler boy expresses interest in a pregnant woman, she is having a girl.  If he doesn’t show interest, she’s having a boy.  

Old Wives Tale #35:  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.  I prefer my right side lately.  Hmm.

Old Wives Tale #36:  Hands

When the pregnant woman is asked to show her hands, it’s a boy if she keeps her palms down and a girl if she shows her palms up.  

Old Wives Tale #37:  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.  So far Tarzan has lost a couple of pounds (while eating ice cream), so maybe a boy is what we’re having.

Old Wives Tale #38:  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.  I just told Tarzan the other day that my left breast is significantly larger than the right one.  A girl maybe?

Old Wives Tale #39:  Necklace Over Hand

Have someone hold a necklace over your hand.  If the necklace swings back and forth, it’s a boy.  If it moves in a circle, it’s a girl.  Last summer one of my friends did this test to me at a crawfish boil.  It was done three times and the results were:  girl, boy, and girl.  She also did it to other people, some pregnant, some not, and some that already had kids.  This test was right 100% of the time.  Pretty interesting if you ask me.   

Old Wives Tale #40:  What Do You Think?

71% of the time, the mom-to-be knows what she is having.  I might be falling into the old wives tale trap, or maybe I just want a little girl, but I feel like it is a girl.  I guess we’ll find out in 2.5 weeks!  

Old Wives Tale #41:  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.  As you know, I have only thrown up once, but I’ve been extremely nauseous more often than not.  Girl again perhaps. 

Old Wives Tale #42:  Areolae

If your areolae (the part around your nips) have darkened, it’s a boy.   Considering my areolae only look like they’ve eaten my boobs, all while staying the same color, another sign pointing to a little girl.  

Old Wives Tale #43:  Protein

When a pregnant woman craves meat and cheese, count on a boy.  

old-wives-talesOld Wives Tale #44:  Feet

Are your feet colder now that you are pregnant?  If so, you just might be having a boy.  If your feet have stayed the same before pregnancy and during, you’re having a little girl.  

Old Wives Tale #45:  Hair on Legs

If the hair on your legs has been growing at record speeds, you might be having a boy.  

Old Wives Tale #46:  Hands are Dry

If your hands are constantly dry, it’s a boy.    

Old Wives Tale #47:  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.  

Old Wives Tale #48:  Nose

Do you feel like your nose is growing and getting wider?  If so, you might be having a boy.    

Old Wives Tale #49:  Headaches

If you are having headaches, you might be carrying a boy.  I’ve definitely had an increase in headaches, so I wonder… 

Old Wives Tale #50:  Drinking Water

Drinking water is really important when pregnant.  An old wives tale was that if the mom-to-be wasn’t drinking enough water daily, the amniotic fluid would be really dirty for the baby.  Drinking tons of water will help you stay hydrated, but has no correlation with how clean or dirty the amniotic sac is.  

Old Wives Tale #51:  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.  We can only agree on girls names, so we’ll see how accurate this one is.

2 Alyssa

Almost all these say im havin a boy… funny thing is that i am having a boy. O and the first one about the heart burn has actually been proven true. a study was done and 82% of women who reported alot of heart burn had babies that had alot or a full head of hair. 83% of women who reported little heart burn had babies with little to no hair. weird huh… o and by the way.. are you havin a girl or boy??

3 MommytobeAgain

Okay so what did Jane have? I never saw the post.

4 Robin

I was sick all day for a while with my first…a daughter.I was sick all day/night the WHOLE pregnancy with my second….a SON!…13 weeks into this 1 and guess what …SICK!(all day again…sigh) I’m so sick of being sick…lol. Dont know what this one is yet tho.

5 Jenn Erickson/Rook No. 17

What a wonderful post and well put-together list! I found you while doing some research for a FB post for the company I work for. I included a link to your post on our FB Fan page. Thank you! Jenn @ Rook No. 17 (but in this case, appearing on behalf of Psi Bands).

6 Shevon

I had all girls no boys at all.

7 Rebecca Walsh

TO the woman who wrote this did ye have a boy or girl in the end?

8 Shevon

I have something to say about the morning sickness. I have been pregnant 3 times and never had morning sickness. Guess what I had three times in a row GIRLS. My best friend has morning sickness her first pregnancy and she had a boy. So that old wives tale is not true lol. I three girls to prove it. lol

9 Tania

Cute list… made me think of my pregnancy with my daughter (which ended only 6 weeks ago).
We did the key test and the hand test and both came up with a girl. TICK TICK
Daddy and I didn’t pick a boys name at all, we settled with Ava and spent 38 weeks fighting over a middle name. TICK
I kept having dreams that I was having a little boy and I had to dress him in pink so all my baby shower gifts didn’t go to waste. TICK
I was carrying very round and very high (everybody was waiting for me to “drop”). TICK
Daddy gained a lot of weight during my pregnancy as I was so sick with morning sickness, and he used to finish my meals so food didn’t go to waste. TICK TICK

I think I may have been destined to have a girl… Lets hope it’s all opposite next time so we get the pigeon pair!

One (very Australian) old wives tale that makes me giggle is the “If a kookaburra sits on your back fence and laughs, someone in the house is pregnant”. I found out I was pregnant on the 23rd Dec and was going to wait until Christmas Day to tell my family but a little kookaburra decided to spoil my surprise… On Christmas Eve my mum heard a kookaburra laugh and looked out her kitchen window and saw it sitting on the fence. She turned to my dad and said “maybe Tania has some news for us”… the smile that came across my face gave it away!

10 debbie

Belly, if your belly is shaped like a watermelon it means girl, shaped like a basketball means boy.

11 Andrea

Congratulations on your baby! I can’t believe I just learned about this only 20 minutes before your babe’s birth. Where have I been? Under a rock? What a cool concept! Thanks for sharing your wonder and joy with so many.

Regarding #10: I learned through natural birthing circles, that the hot water (sterile after boiling) is/was used by midwives to *ahem* support the perineal area (with warm wet compresses) in stretching and being more flexible just before birth.

12 samantha

Actually, #1 has a basis in fact. For some reason, the hormones that cause hair growth in the baby also lead to increased heartburn or indigestion for the mother.. That being said, according to these wives’ tales, I’m having a boy. I’ll find out tomorrow, and can’t wait. Love how you’ve got all these listed, it was great and fun reading!

13 mary

Has anyone ever heard that if a child has a v-shape hairline at the nape of his or her neck the next child will be a girl, and if a child has a straight hairline at the nape, the next child will be a boy? I think this is an old Italian wives’ tale.

14 susieQ

#5: I heard that somewhere in South America like Peru or something, if a pregnant woman finds an ugly potato she has to go bury it or her baby will be ugly.

#11: This is actually based in truth. More babies are born during full moons than any other time. It has something to do with the gravitational pull or something…

#18: I’ve heard this one go both ways: some people say if the mom has acne, it’s a boy because of the extra testosterone, and some say it’s a girl because a baby girl steals her mother’s beauty.

To Reiza: Oh man the story about your little boy with triplets fighting and climbing walls inside his u-er-us was priceless! It makes me excited for when my kid can come up with stuff like that (only 9 1/2 weeks pregnant so far, got a ways to go)

15 NicoleJB

for #23 my son said dad first and I ended up having a girl after that!

16 Jessi

Almost everything told me I was having a girl when I read these the first time. Come ultrasound time, I was surprised to hear I was having a little boy. Sometimes they’re right, sometimes they’re not. It’s fun to guess though. :)

17 Mrs. Kitty

These were all fun! According to this, I still have no idea what I’m having. Ironically, I just got my 20 week ultrasound this morning, but my husband and I don’t want to know (mostly me), so we didn’t find out. Man that was difficult!!!

What does it mean when during your first trimester you craved fruits and salty things, while having an aversion to chocolate? Then during your second trimester you crave everything that has sugar in it? Weird. I thought I would just stick with one or the other.

I’m having a terrific time following you in your preggo journey. What is your due date? Mine is 4th of July. We say we are making a little firecracker. :)

A.B. England – hello! Well, I’m going to have to say that your # 1 Jane totally fits the bill there. She is very forgetful. Tells me the same thing all the time and forgets little things here and there.

We’re had several people say that they think we’re having a boy here – and a few a girl.

Maybe we should have a little contest or something :) I need to think about that and see what I can come up with. We’re two weeks away from finding out. :)

19 A. B. England

Oh, my mom actually has a story regarding #2. A couple of weeks before I was born, she was at a family picnic and reached up onto a shelf for something or other, and her grandmother-in-law jumped all over her for it saying she’d wrap the umbilical cord around the baby’s neck.

Here’s a couple I heard when I was pregnant.

1) If you get really dumb and forgetful, it’s a girl. Apparently they leech off more of mommy’s brain power than the little boys. I think it has something to do with the sex hormones, which have actually been proven to affect the way synapse connections form in the baby’s developing brain. Girls have information running from one side to the other while boys have information kept on either one side or the other. (It proved true for me both times, actually.)

2) If the dark line that forms down the middle of your belly only runs below your belly button, it’s a boy. (Went the whole belly with one, belly button down only with the other. Both were girls.)

20 Jane

So exciting, J.D. Do you have a preference either way, besides having a healthy baby of course?

21 J.D.

Wow! A lot of these would say I was having a BOY. We’ll see in 3 more weeks….hopefully!

J.D.’s last blog post..Stressed out!

22 Jane

@Unconventional baby – Glad you enjoyed reading. I seriously can’t wait to find out. As you can tell, it’s driving me nuts!

@Marijke – Maybe there’s some truth to the full moon one. You’re the 2nd person to comment on it. I’m glad you explained the boy/girl thing in the ultrasound. Obviously I thought that a boy would be super easy to spot – One has a penis and the other doesn’t. That being said, it makes total sense about the umbilical cord, so thanks for clearing that up!

@Reiza – Thanks for the info. I’ve never mixed anything with cleaners and the Drano test didn’t particularly strike a fancy with me. I will be sure to stay away from doing it.

@Helen – I can’t believe the accuracy of the Chinese gender chart. That’s pretty crazy and maybe it’s stats like that that give it a 90% accuracy.

@TamsanShadows – So true, so true!

23 TamsanShadows

I have to comment on Playing Daddy’s comment about Wives Tale # 38. You’re a male so you probably wouldn’t realize that no womans breasts are the same size, even if you’re not pregnant one is always slightly bigger than the other.

24 Helen

This is funny- the Chinese gender chart was accurate for ALL five of my mom’s pregnancies, both of mine, ALL five of my sister-in-law’s and both of my sisters (one each)
Coincidence? Well, it always has a 50% chance of being right:-)

25 Reiza

The drano thing, the chemical reaction of drano with urine causes a dangerous odor (ever mix amonia and other cleaners? It can knock you out) and I’ve heard it can actually get pretty hot.

26 Marijke

Wonderful list! Love it. My “kids” are now young adults. Would have loved to read something like that when I was pregnant.

# 11 – full moon. I worked in postpartum many years ago and on full moons, our unit was always over flowing.

A question about # 38 though (seems to have caught the attention of a few people!). If one side is bigger than the other, you’ll have a girl/boy, depending on the side, but then, how come I have two boys and one girl? Did they get confused? Was the girl (or the boys) facing me rather than looking out so my left and right became their right and left? And just how do these unborn children know which is left and right anyway?

About # 21 – ultrasounds. More mistakes are made determining boys than girls because of the umbilical cord. If the cord is placed in such a way that it gives an appearance of a male (rather long though!), then it’s easy to make that mistake. It’s harder to mistaken a boy for a girl in utero though.

I agree with # 40 – we didn’t want to know our babies’ sex but I knew I was carrying a boy the first time, girl the second, boy the third. Hubby didn’t believe me, silly man.

27 Unconventional Baby

That’s a hilarious list! I think waiting is so hard. No wonder we spend time wondering about the gender.

28 Jane

@Playing Daddy – Too funny! If I saw a woman with really different cup sizes, I would think that’s crazy too. No two boobs are the exact same size though. They do vary a little.

@Reiza – Wow, sounds like many of the wives tales were incorrect for you. We’ll see if things are correct for me – I mostly just think it’s fun to try to predict what I’m having. I had no idea that the Drano was dangerous. What can happen?

29 Reiza

It seems like more signs are pointing to “Girl,” for you. I’ll be eager to hear how accurate that is. We’re not finding out with this one, but I’m due in about a month and a half.

As for #4, studies have shown the heart rate thing only applies IN labor. There does seem to be some truth to it when the heart rate is monitored during labor, but not so much at prenatal appointments.

As for #11, I’ve known a few NICU and L&D nurses who said there’s truth to that. They had more babies to care for during full moons.

14: during my first pregnancy, my mother commented on how I hadn’t gained any weight in my face. I had twin girls. My second pregnancy, my face got MUCH rounder and I had a boy. So that one definitely wasn’t true for me.

According to 16, all my kids should be boys. I have 2 girls and a boy (and one TBA due in March, but according to this, it should be a boy too).

17 actually produces noxious fumes and can be dangerous.

Both my MIL and my mother had boys first. Dh and I are the youngest in our families. We had girls first. So #25 doesn’t work for us either.

I was MUCH moodier when I was pregnant with my girls, but I also had twin girls, so having all the hormones required for a matched set of girls may be responsible for that.

With my daughters, I dreamed that I had twins–one of each and actually, they turned into cats. LOL. I wound up with 2 human girls. With my second pregnancy (my son), I again dreamed I had twins, a boy and a girl. This time, I recently had a dream where I was having a boy. We shall see.

As for 40, I’ve ALWAYS been wrong about what I’m having.

41 has more to do with diet. I was super nauseous with my first pregnancy (lost 20 lbs because I couldn’t eat), but rarely got sick. I ate lots of carbs and not much protein. That can cause problems. With my son, I followed my midwive’s diet and wasn’t nearly as nauseous, but did throw up a little bit. This time, I was able to curb most of the nausea and vomiting with diet.

#34, my toddler son not only expresses an interest, but insist he’s having a baby too (actually 3 babies including 2 that fight each other with swords inside his “u-er-us” and one who escaped and climbed up the wall). So what does that mean? :-)

47 is related to hydration. If urine is bright yellow, you’re dehydrated. Of course, the iron in prenatals can also turn it that funky bright yellow.

I’ll give you 48. That definitely happened to me with my 2nd pregnancy.

51 has been the complete opposite for us. 1st time around, we agreed on 1 girl name and 2 boys’ names and we had 2 girls. 2nd time, we agreed on a girl’s name and had a boy. This time, we agree on a girl’s name, but not a boy. We shall see.

30 Playing Daddy

Great collection. Old Wives Tale #38 throws me for a loop. If I saw a woman with two different size boobs, I’d have different concerns other than the sex of her baby.
