I thought it might be fun to use ourselves as a mass experiment for all the boy/girl myths/truths out there. We could say our cravings, leg-hair growth-rate etc now and then see whether there's any truth in any of it once we know gender, either at 20 weeks or in April.
I'll start with this:
Cravings: pizza, minestrone soup, haribo, hot and sour soup
Leg hair growth: slightly less than usual
Age + month of conception = odd number (45)
This suggests girl.
Age + month of conception = 29 odd number
Cravings: milk and apples
Leg hair growth-whats that about?? mine is slower.
And we already have 3 boys...so must be another boy, yay!
What's this all about then? Hey, why not!
Cravings: Salty food (trying to avoid for obvious reasons), carbs (didn't use to eat them)
Leg hair growth: ??? About the same I think but will monitor more closely after next wax
Age and month of conception: 40 (even number)
Already have 1 boy -so what does all this info suggest?
Sorry, you'll have to wait to find out until April as we aren't finding out at the scan (how old fashioned but I like surprises!)
Leg hair growth is supposed to slow down with a girl and speed up with a boy.
I guess we'll know next April then....
