Our Gender Reveal!

January 1, 2018 in Pregnancy - No Comments

We recently moved to Nevada and don’t have many friends and family out here so we couldn’t do a gender reveal party but we wanted a cute way to announce to our family and friends. Once we found out what we’re having, we both posted on our Facebook asking our friends and family to post their guesses. It was pretty much even with the boy and girl guesses.

Gender Prediction Tests

I thought it’d be fun to show my results from some of the most popular gender tests out there.

Craving Salty or Sweet?
The theory goes if you are craving sweets, you are having a girl and if you’re craving salty foods, you’re having a boy. So far I’ve been craving sweets. I want cake all the time. RESULT: GIRL

Chinese Gender Chart
This is one I heard about a while back. You take your lunar age and month of conception to see if you are having a boy or girl. You can try it out here. RESULT: GIRL

Even/Odd Mayan System
Legend has it that the Mayans determined a baby’s sex by looking at the mother’s age at conception and the year of conception. If both are even or odd, it’s a girl. If one’s even and one’s odd, it’s a boy. We conceived in 2017 and I was 29. RESULT: GIRL

They say that girls steal their mother’s beauty, so a woman carrying a girl tends to have acne. I’ve enjoyed a couple months run of being acne-free. I broke out like crazy the first 3 months! RESULT: GIRL

Results: 4/4 say girl!!

Was It Right?

Well all tests point to girl so when we went in to find out what we were having, we for sure thought it was a girl. I even had dreams it was a girl! Sean had a dream it was a boy and turns out his dream was right! All those tests were wrong (just for fun). We are super excited to be bringing a baby boy into the world next year! We ended up posting the picture of the outfit and photo to our Facebook and Instagram to tell our friends and family.

Were gender predictions right for you?
