Myth: The presence or absence of morning sickness during pregnancy can predict the baby's sex.
Fact: Most experts believe this is truly a myth. However, several studies have found that among women with severe morning sickness (bad enough to require admission to the hospital) slightly more than half (53% to 56%) delivered girls. Perhaps there is some truth to this idea. Then again, even among those with the worst morning sickness, the male and female offspring were nearly 50-50 and whether this applies to milder cases is unknown.
Myth: The following pregnancy symptoms can predict my baby's sex and amount of hair they will have:
Bad heartburn = A lot of hair
Little/no heartburn = No hair
Craving sweets = Girl
Craving salt = Boy
Fact: This myth is not true. There is no scientific proof that these symptoms and cravings can predict anything about your baby before it is born.
Myth: Morning sickness can predict if I am having a boy or girl?
Fact: This is a myth. There is no way to tell from having or not having morning sickness whether you are having a boy or a girl.
