How to tell if Victoria Beckham's baby is a girl...

6 years ago

Victoria beckham is pregnant Posh Spice has a bun in the oven. The big question now is if she's carrying it high, or low.

Supposedly a high baby indicates a girl. And after three boys (isn't that half a soccer team?) Mrs. Beckham deserves a little sugar in her life.

Until she knows for certain, it's anyone's guess, though. The UK Times's answer for more spilling ink (or pixels) on the subject is to drag out some old wives' tales as to how to tell a baby's gender. Okay, I'll bite. Did you know that:

1 - A high one means it's a girl. In direct correlation, a low baby bump means it's a boy.

2 - if the unborn baby's heart rate is above 140, it's a girl... if it's under that figure, it's a boy. (Scientists pooh-pooh this one).

3 - If Victoria's cravings are sweet, its girl; sour means boy. (Another one that have the medical establishment rolling in the aisles.)

4 - If David also puts on weight, a girl is on the way.

5 - If Victoria's face gets plump, it's a girl.

6 - A larger left breast means it's a girl. (Hmmmm....how would plastic surgery affect that one?)

7 - Being in New Age California, my friend Bonnie regularly dangles a mystical pendant over the mother-to-be's palm or belly, and watches its movements. If it moves back and forth, it's a boy, whereas movement round and round means a girl.

8 - If Victoria picks up a spare key from the thin end it's a girl.

9 - Finally: women have good instincts about which they're carrying. In fact, one study found that 71 per cent of mothers-to-be correctly guessed the gender of their baby.

The Hub can do better than that. Thus far he's been right 21 out of 20 times.

The birth he missed? Our daughter's, of course. He claimed he didn't see any pigtails, and that threw him off.

How about you? Have you found any old baby gender wives tales to work? If so, I'd like to hear it.

It's a girl,
