“If your bump is low you’re having a boy, and if it’s high and wide it’s a girl” ⠀

When you decide not to find out the sex of your baby it can be alot of fun playing the guessing game. There are many pregnancy myths out there and this week I will look at a few. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The reality is there is no evidence to show that the sex of your baby can be predicted from the shape of your bump. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When pregnant with Jorja I had really bad morning sickness from week 6-16. Some claim that bad morning sickness means you’re having a boy. In fact, the opposite is more likely to be true. Research shows that women carrying girls are more likely to have higher levels of hCG, the pregnancy hormone that causes sickness, so if anything, being sick means you’re more likely to be carrying a girl. Saying that I was only sick twice with Jazmine which made me think I was having a boy but some say morning sickness can be easier in subsequent pregnancies as the body has been through pregnancy once before so it deals with the high levels of hCG better. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Research suggests that one other thing that might indicate the baby’s sex is maternal instinct. Of all the studies done into predicting gender, the mum’s instinct is the one with the more convincing statistics. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What do you think you’re having? What does you’re instinct tells you?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📷 @ajat_
