Baby’s Sex – To know or not to know?

BabyFor my mom, the sex of the first baby was very important. Where she grew up (in Iran, ages ago), first born sons brought a lot of pride to the family and even in those old days, there were many ways to discover the sex of the baby.

Only when I got pregnant for the first time, I learned about all those beliefs and traditions:

  • If you are pretty during your pregnancy, it means you will have a boy (because girls take away your beauty)
  • If you hold your necklace with your wedding ring hanging from it and the ring moves in circles, you will have a girl
  • If you touch your nose after someone sprinkles salt on your head (without your knowledge), you will have a boy (because he will grow a mustache under his nose), but if you touch your eyebrows, you will have a girl

It was so funny, I thought back then I could do a PhD thesis on the beliefs surrounding the sex of babies.

Somehow, my story was a bit more complicated.
