When you first find out you are pregnant, myriad thoughts run through your mind. However, the biggest mystery that almost every parent wants to unravel is the mystery of the baby’s gender. Unfortunately, without lab work or a time travel machine, there is really no way to rush the answer.
However, there are plenty of old wives’ tales and suspicious tests that you can perform in order to take a guess at your little one’s gender.
In this article, we will discuss some of the methods through which you can determine the gender of your little one without an ultrasound or lab work.
Take a Look at the Heart Rate
There are plenty of people who swear by the accuracy of a baby’s heart rate to determine their gender, however, there are also skeptics.
The story is that a fetal heart rate above 140 beats per minute means you are carrying a little girl and a fetal heart rate lower than 140 beats per minute means that you are carrying a boy.
The Wedding Ring Test
For this test, you need to slip your wedding bed off of your finger and grab a piece of string.
You may also want an extra pair of hands for this one.
Lie down on your back and hang the string and wedding ring over your belly.
If your wedding ring begins to swing in a circular motion, rumor has it you are carrying a boy!
If the wedding ring goes back and forth like a pendulum, then you are supposed to be expecting a girl.
See a Psychic
Even if you do not believe in the power of the psychic community, you must have some belief in suspicions or you would not be here.
Seeing a psychic might be a cool activity to help in the guessing game of whether your little one is a boy or a girl.
You can even have a palm reading online if you do not want to waste a trip out.
