You Can Try Some Old Wives Tales, But….

We are often asked if gender reveal wives tales really work.  We believe the only way to make accurate gender determination is either by having a gender DNA blood test or gender reveal 2D ultrasound.  However, some of the old wives tales that have been around for generations can still be used for entertainment purposes.  Here are a few:

Ring Test

The “ring test” has been around for ages.  Tie your wedding ring to a string and hang it above your belly.  If it swings back and forth, you are having a girl according to the old wives tale.  If it swings in a circle, you are having a boy.

Body Temperature

Some say that if you are cold, you are having a boy.  If you are often hot and sweaty, you are having a girl.


This old wives tale says that sweet cravings indicate a girl; salty cravings indicate a boy.

Morning Sickness

Another old wives tale states that morning sickness is a sign of having a girl.

Swollen Legs

Some say that swollen legs are indicative of carrying a boy.
