As soon as you found out that you are pregnant, you might have started wondering whether your baby is a girl or a boy. Your relatives and friends might have also started predicting your baby's gender based on your actions. You might have heard things like, "Oh, you are looking so beautiful. That means you are having a baby girl". Know that these predictions are all wrong.
Your baby shares a special bond with you. There is no doubt that you and your husband will love your baby. So why does it matter whether the baby is a boy or a girl? Be happy that you are pregnant now and will soon have this beautiful baby in your arms.
Do not try to plan for a baby boy/girl based on tips and tricks that you might have heard from people. Do not try to find out the baby's gender during pregnancy. It is important to know that gender determination is illegal in India.
Myth 1- Symptoms of baby girl: You became pregnant in the summer
Think about it. If this was true, then girls would have been born only in the winter. Clearly, that is not the case. So the weather does not control the baby’s gender. These myths are wrong. Don't believe in any of them.
Myth 2- Symptoms of baby girl: The front part of your stomach grows big
This is not correct. It does not matter whether your baby is a boy or a girl. Your stomach grows based on your baby's position and size.
Myth 3- Symptoms of baby girl: Your left breast becomes bigger
There is no relation to your breast size to your baby's gender. During pregnancy, your body prepares itself for breastfeeding. So you might notice an increase in your breast size. This is very normal, but if you notice a big difference in the size and shape of both breasts, consult your doctor. This might be symptoms of other conditions like breast cancer.
Myth 4- Symptoms of baby girl: Your weight does not increase much
There can be many reasons for not putting on too much weight during pregnancy. Maybe you are not eating enough food, maybe your food is not nutritious etc.. This has no connection to your baby's gender. Eat properly, so that both you and your baby can be healthy. Less weight might create more complications during pregnancy and delivery.
Myth 5- Symptoms of baby girl: Your hips and legs become fatter
This myth is also wrong. It is normal for your hips and legs to become fat during pregnancy. After all, you are carrying the weight of your baby. But this is not a symptom of baby girl. By exercising regularly, you can control your weight and stay fit during your pregnancy.
Myth 6- Symptoms of baby girl: You have more vomiting
This myth is also wrong. Morning sickness and vomiting happens to most pregnant women, but some women may not have it as much as others. So if you have less morning sickness or vomiting, it does not mean that you are having a baby girl.
Myth 7- Symptoms of baby girl: You feel less hungry
Because of morning sickness, vomiting, etc., you might not feel like eating much during pregnancy. But remember, your baby gets all the nutrients from the food you eat. So it is important to eat properly, even when you don't feel like eating. But you should know that this does not mean that you are having a baby girl. Eat properly so that your baby grows well.
Myth 8- Symptoms of baby girl: You feel like eating more sweets
You might already know there are a lot of hormonal changes in your body during pregnancy. Because of these changes, your taste senses can change as well. Sometimes you might feel like eating things that you used to hate, sometimes you might start hating your favourite dishes. Sometimes you might also feel like having very specific types of food like spicy food or sweets. This happens to all pregnant women. This is not a symptom of baby boy or baby girl.
Myth 9- Symptoms of baby girl: You turn towards your right side while sleeping
There is no proof that your sleeping side is related to your baby's gender. This myth is also wrong. There is no guarantee that you will give birth to a baby girl based on your sleeping position.
Myth 10- Symptoms of baby girl: You have hair fall problems
The condition of your hair has no connection to your baby's gender. Hair fall or hair breakage does not have any connection to your baby’s gender. This does not mean that you are having a baby girl.
Myth 11- Symptoms of baby girl: You look more beautiful
If you eat healthy food and avoid oily, junk food, your skin will become clear and it will glow. So, you might look more beautiful. This has nothing to do with your baby's gender. There is no guarantee that you will have a baby girl.
Myth 12- Symptoms of baby girl: Your skin feels soft
No, there is no connection between your baby's gender and the softness of your skin. Do not believe these myths
Myth 13- Symptoms of baby girl: You have mood swings
The many hormonal changes in your body can make you have mood swings. Sometimes you'll be happy, sometimes sad, sometimes angry for no reason at all. This has no connection to your baby's gender. It definitely does not confirm that you will have a baby girl
Myth 14- Symptoms of baby girl: You feel less movements of your baby in your stomach
This myth is also wrong. Your baby might sometimes be more active and sometimes less active. But your baby's gender is not at all a reason for your this. Also, in the third semester, as your baby has grown a lot, you need to keep track of his/her movements. If you feel that the movements are very less, please contact your doctor immediately to check for any complications.
Myth 15- Symptoms of baby girl: Your baby's heartbeat is more than 140bpm
Don't believe in such myths. They are all wrong. Your baby's heart rate keeps changing, based on his/her growth, if he/she is awake or sleeping and many other things. It has no connection to your baby's gender.
During pregnancy, there are a lot of hormonal, physical, mental and emotional changes in your body. These have no connection to your baby's gender. All of these changes may happen to you. Instead of focusing on your baby's gender, focus on his/her good health and happiness.
In this blog, you can read about some of the most common myths about the symptoms of baby girl. These are all wrong, so don't try to guess your baby's gender with these. If any of your friends or relatives believe in such myths, explain this to them as well.
