Are Boys More Active Than Girls?
My husband and I are having fun “guessing” the gender of our child that is due in August. We’ve checked the Chinese Birth Chart, and we’ve pondered our child’s heart rate. We’ve looked at the way I’m “carrying”–which is all out in the front. Does that mean it’s a boy?
I’ve also looked at my diet and my cravings to see if I could ascertain our child’s gender that way. I’ve considered a few other “old wives’ tales” that my great grandmother told me about in an effort to discover the gender of our child. My great grandmother was a lay midwife and had 6 of her own children, so she should have known a thing or two about babies! I think anyway….
Yet, I am still uncertain as to the gender of our child. I know–all that effort for what? I suppose it makes the pregnancy go faster?
Last night, my aunt asked me how active our child is in utero. At this stage, I mostly feel flutters, so I can’t quite gauge it’s activity. My aunt claims that her male children were more active in utero than her female children. I suppose this held true for my pregnancies too; my son was more active than my daughters.
Have you noticed a difference in the activity level during your pregnancy between your male and female children? Do you think you can use this to determine gender?
