Most wives tales are dismissed as myths, but I still think it’s fun to take the gender quizzes! Here are my favorite wives tales:
My result from this wives tale quiz is GIRL! Actually all my answers, besides the way I’m carrying (too early to tell), indicate girl. I guess I’ll find out soon enough at my next doctor’s appointment!
Something interesting I found while digging around is studies have shown that women with 12 years of education predict their babies correctly 71 percent of the time. Studies also show a significant tendency for women with dreams or strong feelings about the gender to be right.
I had strong feelings that my first two would be boys. I also have a feeling this one is a girl, but I’m a little hesitant after two boys!
Did you or do you have a strong feeling one way or the other? How about the old wives tales? Were they accurate for you?

Ok. So I just ran across your blog a couple weeks ago. And really started looking at your posts this past week… I am also a SAHM of 2 boys, the first born in 2011. My #3 is due at the end of August or beginning of September and I, also, can not shake the feeling that this one is a girl!
With my first boy the wives tales (and my intuition) predicted correctly. With my second, I did not have a guess as gender, but wives tales were leaning, incorrectly, toward girl. :) The old wives tales are fun to play with, aren’t they? :)
Looks like we have a lot on common! Let me know when you find out :)
I have a 2 year old girl and 37 weeks pregnant with a boy and literally have showed the opposite gender signs according to these lol ☺
Haha! So funny. I guess that’s why their old wive’s tales! :)
My first was a girl though I hope this 1 will be a boy but I have a sniggering feeling it’ll be another girl!
Thank you so much for the predictions!
Congratulations on your pregnancy! Praying it’s a healthy baby and that your family feels so right :)
