Forget about waiting all those weeks to find out the sex of your newborn. Since the beginning of time moms-to-be and family who love them have come up with ways to try to guess if it’s going to be a little girl or a boy. If you want to do more of a traditional and less technological way of figuring out the gender of your baby then we have those methods too! We want to share all of the fun ways along your pregnancy journey to have some gender reveal guessing fun!
Genetic blood test
Blood tests claim to predict your baby’s sex as early as seven weeks. This way of finding out the gender has been around for years. Typically this type of test has only been popular within the American culture. Data published in the Journal of the American Medical Association showed that the tests has a solid success rate between 95 and 99% accurate. It detects small pieces of fetal DNA that are present in the mom’s bloodstream during pregnancy. Genetic blood screening kits look for the male Y chromosome in drops of your blood taken. If it’s there, you’re having a boy; if not, it’s a girl.
Because of the small risk of miscarriage, your doctor probably won’t recommend this procedure for you. Partaking in amniocentesis involves putting a needle into the fluid surrounding the baby placenta and then looking at the chromosomal makeup of that baby, which would reveal gender as well as any chromosomal abnormalities. Unless someone mislabels your results, this test is entirely accurate.
The shape of your bump
Consider this our first gender reveal old wives’ tale is for you. The Lore suggests that a round ball-like baby bump means there’s a baby boy in your future. While a wider bump that kinda looks like you’re carrying all over the place and is facing towards the ground more is a girl.
Morning sickness madness
This gender reveal old wives’ tale is straight to the point. If you are experiencing nausea and sickness symptoms in the morning then we have some results for you. According to this tale, that means you’re having a little girl. A lack of morning sickness means you can expect a little dude in your future.
Sweet vs. Savory
Girls are supposed to be sugar and spice and everything nice! So it’s no wonder if you are craving sweets it’s believed you will be having a daughter. If you find yourself on the opposite side of the spectrum wanting salty french fries and steaks sound the alarm, its a boy!
Chinese Gender Predictor
A Chinese Gender Calendar was supposedly buried in a royal tomb more than 700 years ago, but was recently discovered and is now used to determine the gender of an unborn child. (Hey, it’s a cool story if nothing else.) To use the Chinese gender predictor chart, find your age at the time of conception, and then follow across to the month the baby was conceived to find the predicted gender. You can easily find tons of Chinese Gender Calendars online to take a quick peek to see what is yet to come!
Mayan gender prediction
The Mayans came up with their method for determining if it’s gonna a girl or boy by simply looking at the year of conception and the mom’s age at conception. If both numbers line up and are even or odd it’s a girl. If one number is even and one number is odd, it’s a boy. If your a history buff, this is an exciting way to find out the gender reveal.
The key test
The Key Test is a fun quick Gender Reveal party game! This test claims a pregnant woman can know the gender of her baby by simply picking up a key. If the mom grabs the key at the top round part its a girl. However, if she grabs it at the narrow part then of course its a boy. Oh, there’s one final surprise to this gender reveal. If the Mom grabs the key in the middle it will be Twins!
To learn the sex of their baby at the 20-week anatomy ultrasound scan the baby needs to be in the right position. This method is not foolproof. Techs can make mistakes, so it’s not unheard of to get a gender switch at a later ultrasound, or at the birth itself. For finding out the gender of your newborn having an ultrasound this is the most popular route people take.
The state of Moms face
As the tale goes, moms-to-be who have kept their face looking clean can expect a boy. On the other hand if you have small bouts of acne or blemishes then its a girl! The belief is the little girl has stolen Mom’s good looks for herself!
