Pregnancy is deemed the best phase of being a woman. Being born a woman attains full glory when she becomes a mother.
But it’s also the timeline where you get to hear a lot of myths. Not only in our Country, it happens all over the world. So let me list them down for you and you can comment if you came across something more. So let’s get those myths busted.
It starts with the date you conceive. Add the month of conception to your age, the total is even it’s a girl else you’re in for a boy.
Then comes morning sickness, if you have it throughout your first trimester then it’s a girl else if you don’t experience it you have a boy.
Pregnancy glow People have different versions here.
“You’re glowing you definitely will have a girl” is what you hear and if it’s the other way , you look tired and dull they say you are having a boy , since the male child draws out all the energy.
Rest of the world:
If you’re dull it means you have a girl, since she takes up all your glow. And if you are glowing and look fabulous you will have a boy.
Carrying high or low, wide or outward:
If you are carrying low and belly is outward, you are probably carrying a boy.
If you are carrying high and belly is wide you are carrying a girl.
If you crave sweets and dairy rich stuff, you are probably carrying a girl.
If you crave salty and spicy food, you are probably carrying a boy.
Doesn’t it depend on what the woman usually wants to eat?
Fetal heart rate:
If it is over 140 per second you are carrying a girl and if it’s below, you are carrying a boy.
Swelling of nose:
They say if you have a swollen nose it’s probably a girl.
But the actual fact our noses swollen up due to increased estrogen levels.
Wedding ring myth:
Tie a strand of the father’s hair to your wedding ring and swing it over your belly, you are probably carrying a girl if it goes in circles; if it swings back and forth then it’s a boy.
Doesn’t it depend on wind direction?
Stepping over ropes:
It’s considered that stepping on a rope results in umbilical cord coiling around the fetus neck.
In modern days, now it extends to electric chords as well.
Usage of hands:
Ancient days people say If the pregnant woman is seated on floor and when she tries to get up, if she uses her left hand first it would be a boy; if its right you would be carrying a girl.
I don’t think that would change once a woman becomes pregnant. Even when she was ten she would have been using the same hand to get up.
Whatever the above points seem to convey what all mothers want is to have a healthy, cheerful baby. Gender discrimination should not be taking a priority here. No mother will want to abandon a child just because she was expecting the other gender. In the end, he/she is another tiny living human being created by her and who is now dependent on her.
Keep having positive thoughts, surround yourself with loads of happiness, positive vibes and most importantly people with positive vibes. Keep yourself well hydrated and well-fed. And that is all that takes to see your little dude/duddette.
Let’s hear those myths coming and keep nodding heads; get the myths busted. I will always love my baby no matter he/she. A baby is a baby.
