Cheryl Wee And Roy Fong Are Expecting A...

Society's favourite 'It' couple are expecting and boy, are they excited!

Before the days of ultrasounds and blood tests, people didn't know whether they were expecting a boy or girl till they gave birth. Together with Cheryl Wee and Roy Fong, we put some common old wives' tales to the test—how accurate do you think these sayings are?

Cheryl wears wool sweater and denim jeans, both by Club Monaco; Hardwear Ball earrings in 18k gold and T Hinged Bangle in 18k gold with diamonds, both by Tiffany&Co.

Pregnancy myth #1: Morning sickness

Some believe that the severity of your morning sickness will clue you in on the gender of the baby: the more severe, the more likely you're carrying a girl, they claim. "Before I even knew I was pregnant, I didn't experience any symptoms at all. In fact, I did a pregnancy test on a whim—I was about to start on a series of womb treatments and just wanted to be doubly sure that I wasn't expecting," Cheryl says. "The ironic thing was, a week after I found out I was pregnant, the morning sickness got really, really bad!"

Conclusion: The verdict's still out!

Pregnancy myth #2: Cravings

If you're craving salty and savoury foods like potato chips, you're more likely to be carrying a boy, while a sweet tooth could mean you're expecting a girl. "To be honest, I don't really crave for anything savoury or sweet, as I try to listen to what my body needs. But if I had to choose between fried chicken or cake, I would pick chicken over a sweet dessert."

Conclusion: Pretty accurate!

Pregnancy myth #3: Position of the bump

You're likely expecting a boy if you're carrying low, and a girl if you're carrying high, some claim. A couple of months in to her pregnancy, Cheryl does look like she's carrying low, and she secretly whispers that she's expecting a boy. "Just two sessions ago, my gynae told us that he was 90 per cent sure we were going to have a girl, but we now know for sure that it's going to be a boy!" Already the doting father, Roy adds, "To have this baby is quite a miracle because we weren't expecting Cheryl to be able to conceive easily. The gender isn't important to me, as long as our baby is healthy."

Conclusion: Spot on
