So, you are pregnant and curious as to what you might be having. Is it a boy or is it a girl? There are many people that want and need to know this as soon as humanly possible and there are others that want it to be a complete surprise on the day the child is born. Maybe an ultrasound will be able to tell you around 20 weeks or maybe not. If the baby is not cooperating and lying in a perfect position, you may not be able to see the most important area to determine the sex of your future child. So, what are some great predictors of the gender of your child? Is the suspense just killing you? Check out some of these indicators and old wives’ tales to see if they hold true and that may just let you know what you are having.

What is your Intuition telling you?
Basically, just the feeling you have inside on it being a boy or a girl may be one of the most accurate tests. The mother’s intuition is hard to deny and is one of the best predictors of gender. What do you feel you have growing inside? Is it a little boy or a little girl?
All of these predictors are fun and interesting, but they may give conflicting results in the end. Even ultrasounds are not 100% accurate, so when the baby is born it may just be a surprise for you anyway! So, have fun with these questions and feel the excitement of not knowing and guessing. Soon enough you will know the true answer to your question and it will be worth the wait!
