Hello everyone! So when I had my son, we never did a baby shower or a gender reveal party. However, with this one I wanted to do a gender reveal party with close family and friends. So we booked a table at a local restaurant which could cater for the roughly 30 people we had coming.
I wasn’t sure how I wanted to reveal the actual gender, and then it hit me, why don’t we get our son to tell everyone, so we didn’t actually tell him what the sex was until he was just about to reveal it (Since he is 5 and can’t keep secrets lol!).
I also thought I would do several old wives tales and see how accurate they are.
Chinese gender predictor: (Girl).
Acne ~ If you have acne while pregnant, it’s a girl. It’s thought that acne during pregnancy is caused by the extra hormones: (Boy).
Moodiness ~ If you are really moody, you are having a girl. If pregnancy is making you smile & be more happy you are having a boy: (Girl).
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: (Boy).
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: (Boy).
Areolae ~ If your areolae (the part around your nips) have darkened, it’s a boy. If they haven’t, its a girl: (Boy).
Headaches ~ If you are having headaches, you might be carrying a boy: I have been having them but not much. (Inconclusive).
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: (Girl).
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: A little bit of both really (Inconclusive).
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 (Boy).
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. (Boy).
Total boy: 6
Total girl: 3
Total Inconclusive: 2
There is lots of fun different ways that you can reveal it, so I have compiled a list for you in case your struggling for ideas, or just want a few ideas of what to do.
