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
In anticipation of their baby boy, Cheryl and Roy have picked out some clothes from The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands' luxury kids collection.
