Baby Update: 34 weeks

Only 6 weeks to go......so today I'm going to share this email that I received the other day about wives tales as to if you're having a boy or girl.

My symptoms/situations are in red....lets see what we end up with.....

Sleep Position Pay attention to which way you lay down in bed tonight. If you prefer sleeping on your left side, you'll have a boy. Right side? Your pregnant with a girl.
Upset Stomach Little girls aren't always sweet. Extreme nausea means you are having a daughter.
I was definitely sick.... :(
Soft or Dry Hands If your hands are dry during pregnancy, you are having a boy; soft -- expect a girl.
Food Cravings Your favorite pregnancy foods may tell you what sex the baby is. If you're craving citrus while pregnant, you're having a girl. Nope craving sweet
Adult Acne If altering hormones makes your skin break out, expect a girl. Skin has been super clear
Graceful or Clumsy Pregnancy If you feel as though you're gliding through they day, you'll have a girl. Stumbling? It's a boy.
Face Weight Gain If your face gets fuller, it means you're having a girl. No idea if I have...not really I guess
Sugar and Spice Food Cravings Craving salt during pregnancy? Potato chips, pretzels, and popcorn means a boy is on the way. Need a little something sweet? Ice cream, chocolate, and candy means you're having a girl.
Mood Changes If you're experiencing pregnant mood-swings, expect a baby girl to arrive soon. Not really...feeling pretty happy overall
High or Low Pregnant Belly If you're carrying the baby low on your stomach, expect a boy. If it's high, you're having a girl. No idea
Baby Weight If you're carrying baby in front, it's a boy. Is the baby weight spaced all around your middle? It's a girl. No idea
Pendulum Test Dangle a chain with a charm over your palm. If it swings back and forth: boy. In a circle: girl.
Model Your Hands "Show me your hands." If you would hold your hands palms up it's a girl. Down? You're having a boy.
Toddler Advice Get baby advice from a nephew or friend's little boy. If a toddler boy shows interest in your belly, you'll have a girl. If he ignores you, it's a boy. Our friends little boy actually TOLD us we're having a gurl....LOL
Eat Garlic Guess the baby's sex by eating garlic. If the smell seeps out of your pores it's a boy. If there's no scent it's a little girl.
Key to Pregnancy If you pick up a key by the round end, you're having a boy. If it's by the long end? A girl.
Even and Odd Numbers If your age and year of conception are both even or odd, it's girl. One even, one odd means a boy.
Baby's Heartbeat If the baby's heart beats more than 150 times per minute, you're pregnant with a girl. Less than 150, it's a boy.
Stress Test A child tends to be of the same sex as the parent who is less stressed at the time of conception.
Dream Meanings If you dream about having a girl while pregnant, you will wind up having a boy and vice versa.
Breast Size If your right breast is larger than the left while pregnant, you are having a girl. If the left is larger, it's a baby boy. No idea....LOL

It's close but it appears to be "leaning" towards a girl....what do you think?
Since this weekend I think everyone I see is telling me they think it's a boy
