Boy or Girl? {Old Wives Tales}

Today I will hopefully find out if we are having a boy or a girl. I am crossing my fingers that they are uncrossing their legs! While I'm waiting for my appointment I'm using these old wives tales to find out.

There is the RING METHOD: You put a gold chain through a ring and hold it like a pendulum over the woman’s hand. If the ring moves in circles, it’s a girl. If the ring moves side to side, it’s a boy. According to this I'm having a boy.

Also, there is a Mathematical formula to find out baby’s sex: Age of the mother when she got pregnant + her month of birth + month of conception (normally 14 days after the first day of the menstrual period) = if result is odd it is a boy if it is even it is a girl. According to this one I'll have a boy too. So we will see!

According to the Mayan calendar I am having a boy

However, according to the list of indicators such as being nauseous, emotional, skin breaking out, soft hands, dreams etc. I am having a girl.

Although there is really only one way to truly find out, I am having fun with the old wives tales anyway, and hope to have an answer in a few hours!
