5 Signs That You’re Having a Boy
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.
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.
