Many parents, especially women, have chosen to find out the sex of their child through the use of technology. This would be through the use of an ultrasound and other technological routes; there are also parents who do not want to know the sex of their unborn child at all. However, for those who want to have fun with this matter, there is a fun game for everyone. There are several old wives tales that parents can use to determine the sex of the unborn child. When the child is born, it is so fun to see if the old wives tales were true and correct. Statistically, these games have been voted number one when it comes to playing them at a baby shower.
The most favorable old wives tale is that of foods. It is said that what a woman eats during pregnancy will determine if she has a boy or girl. Women that crave more sweets are likely to have a girl, and women who crave fruit and the like are likely to have a boy. Many women purposely eat either sweets or healthy foods in hopes to have a preferred baby girl/boy.
The next old wives tale has to do with appearance. First off, women with a wide shape are supposably having a girl, and women looking as if they just swallowed a soccer ball will be having a boy. This appearance tale also has to do with beauty. In respect, no woman is ugly. However, women who look less beautiful are said to be having a girl. This is because the daughter is stealing the looks from the mother. Women looking more beautiful during the pregnancy are said to be having a boy. This is because most boys look more like the father than the mother, though this can be debated strongly.
One additional old wives tale has to do with ideas. The first idea is that the bed must be pointed in a specific direction to have a girl, and it must be pointed in the opposite direction to have a boy. Some people even go as far as tying up one testicle, and this is suppose to make the other testicle produce the child; this is because one testicle makes a boy while the other makes a girl.
These are just old wives tales. People can believe them, but they should still pay great attention to technology, too. However, technology has said one thing and the old wives tales said another; this has worked the other way around, too. The most important thing is to have fun and be joyous during the pregnancy. This will make the baby, whether boy or girl, joyous, too. Having a baby in general is a once in a lifetime joyous occasion.
