According to parents’ stories at OZ Wizard World for Kids, they – almost all – do not like the idea of waiting the full nine months without finding out their babies’ gender. These days, more and more expectant parents decide to discover the sex of their child during pregnancy. Not many have patience for the big surprise at birth; the reason behind this is the need for buying sex-specific clothes, coloring and decorating the nursery, as well as choosing names.
A survey at icollectoz.com estimated that approximately 65% of parents-to-be learn about the gender of their baby before birth.
How to predict the baby gender?
A check up with your ultrasound technician will help you determine whether you are having a boy or a girl. The result is pretty accurate yet can be wrong sometime; in addition, for the very first ultrasound scan, you have to wait for four months. However, since the ultrasound is mainly used to assess the health of the fetus, there is no guarantee that you’ll receive a precise prediction for the baby’s sex.
“Am I pregnant with a boy or a girl?” If you cannot wait any minute to figure out the answer for this question, OZ Wizard World for Kids will offer you assistance. Here you’ll find several fun ways to gain a sneak peek into your unborn child’s gender.
1. Chinese gender chart
This ancient tool is claimed to be over 700 years old – it was first discovered from the Qing Dynasty. Legend says that Chinese gender chart, if used correctly, can reveal the gender of one’s baby with a highly accurate rate (up to 90%). To use this pregnancy prediction tool, a mother needs to know “her lunar date of birth” and “the lunar month of conception”. Although many expectant moms have verified the accuracy of the gender chart, you’re recommended to use it for the entertaining purpose only.
2. Baby’s heart rate
Another method for predicting the baby sex, chosen by OZ Wizard World for Kids, is to listen to the heartbeat of your fetus. Legends say that not all babies have the same heart rate while being in the womb – a baby with a heart beating over 140 beats per minute is a girl, while below 140 beats is a baby boy. This is such a very simple method to find out whether you’ll have a son or a daughter.
However, sadly, there is no scientific evidence showing the correlation between the baby heart rate and its gender.
3. Drano gender test
All pregnant women know this method. It’s like an interesting science experiment where you have to create a mixture from the Drano Crystal and a small amount of the expectant mom’s urine. Pour the combination in a jar and wait for an instant chemical reaction – if the Drano mixture is green or doesn’t change color, you are conceiving a girl. Otherwise, you are expecting a boy if the mixture turns blue or a dark brown color.
