5 Signs That You’re Having a Boy

We’ve all heard about which boy or girl early signs can help pregnant women predict their baby’s sex. But do you actually know how sex is determined, and which of these signs are true or false? Read this article to learn more about your baby’s sex.

Craving salty foods

Research has shown that anywhere between 50% to 90% of all pregnant women experience food cravings at some point during their pregnancy. And a popular belief states that women carrying girls will crave more sweets. They also think that if you’re having a boy, you’ll crave mostly savory and salty foods.

Lower fetal heart rate

Another baby sex myth claims that if your baby’s heart rate is around 140 beats per minute, it’s a boy. A faster heartbeat would mean that you’re carrying a girl. But scientific studies have shown that there isn’t a significant difference between the heartbeats of female and male fetuses.

Carrying low

Just like carrying high is supposed to mean that you’re having a baby, it’s widely believed that a lower bump means your baby is a boy.

Healthier hair and skin

This is the opposite of the myth that having a girl will “take away your beauty”. A lot of people believe that if you’re carrying a boy, your skin will look healthier and you’ll have thick, lustrous hair.

No mood swings

Pregnant women are believed to have usual mood swings. If you don’t experience such a thing while your pregnancy then most probably you are carrying baby boy.
