Enjoy this fun FREE printable baby shower game featuring the little elephant in gender neutral colors.
When I was 5 months pregnant with my first, my husband and I went out to eat for my birthday. After the meal, our waitress came by to clear our table. She asked us about our upcoming addition, how far I was along, if we knew the gender (which we didn’t), etc.
She then assuredly told me that she knew that I was having a baby boy because I was carrying high.
The waitress had never seen me standing up since she didn’t seat us. So how in the world you can tell how a mama is carrying when she is seated down, I don’t know.
At the time I thought it was a …
I don’t know… perhaps because she thought she knew more about my baby than me. And it seemed a little personal?
Well low and behold she was right.
Now fast forward 5 years. At church, I noticed one of the gals had quite a little tummy which had not been there before. By the way she was carrying (low) and the size of her belly (it being her 1st), I predicted that she was about 4 months pregnant and was going to have a baby girl.
Of course I didn’t go up and ask her!
Knowing it to be a great sin to inquire if a lady is pregnant, I had to wait a week or two until her husband told everyone they were expecting.
Honest to goodness I was SPOT on! Look at me becoming like one of those ladies! 😉
I have a few more stories that confirm a few of the “old wives’ tales” as accurate.
Like the dark line that appears on a pregnant mama’s belly usually in her 3rd trimester. If the line is from the belly button down it is a boy or if the line is from the top of the belly all the way down it is a girl. I have asked many, many mother’s about the line on their tummies and ‘the line theory’ has been 100% correct.
I could go on, but my scientific husband told me that was quite enough.
