Pregnacy Gender Predictor Quiz
Congratulations! You're pregnant! Life is about to change in a big way for you and your family! It can be both an exciting and scary time.
One of the most fun things to do while your pregnant is imagine what your little one will be like. Whose eyes will he have? Will she laugh like you or her daddy? The first thing most parents want to know though is "What is the sex of my baby?"
There are only a few ways to find out the gender of your baby for sure. Some pregnant women have a procedure called amniocentesis. Usually this is done to check for birth defects or chromosomal abnormalities (like Down syndrome). It is not a procedure scheduled for most low risk, healthy pregnancies. If you have it done though, you can find out the gender of your baby along with the other results!
The other common way people find out if they are having a boy or a girl is through ultrasound. Depending on your doctor, you may only have one ultrasound your entire pregnancy at around 20 weeks, or you may end up with several. Either way, if the baby is cooperative and mature enough, your doctor should be able to tell you your baby's gender.
Many people however don't have amniocentesis, or the findings from their ultrasound are inconclusive. Some parents just don't want to wait for those test results! That is where wives tales come in! While these myths don't have any scientific backing, they are a fun way to guess the sex of your baby and start dreaming!
