One pregnancy myth is that if a woman has morning sickness, there is a higher chance that she is having a girl. The theory is that one or more of the pregnancy hormones may be more elevated with a female fetus. This elevation in the pregnancy hormone(s) could possibly lead to increased nausea and vomiting.
Well…. this is probably more myth than anything. However, one Swedish study showed that women who required hospitalization for severe nausea and vomiting were just slightly more likely to have a girl than a boy (56% vs the usual 50%).
To me, that’s not that impressive. I wouldn’t count on a few days (more like weeks right?) of sickness amounting to any predictable information on gender. I still prefer ultrasound to help determine that!
Happy Holidays and Happy New Year everyone!!
