If my hair is dry does that mean I might be having a girl?

I've heard that if your hair is really dry during pregnancy then your having a lil girl. I'm just wondering if thats true or not.

  • Sounds like another old wives tale. I've never heard that one before though.

  • Wives tale. Mine was greasy as all get out with both kids, had a girl the first one a boy the second. Only way to tell for sure is an ultrasound or amino fluid test. Just pray for healthy and be happy no matter which you get.

  • You have a 50-50 shot, regardless of how dry your hair is.

  • Sounds like you need a deep conditioning treatment. Sorry, but this doesn't mean much. I wish it were that easy to tell though.

  • If your baby has a "who-ha" your having a girl... if you get a positive "turtle" sign on the US then it's a boy!!!
    Really, the only way to tell is thru amnio, US or birth... everything else is just an old wives tale!!

  • i can only personally vouch for "boys carrying really high and girls being really low". This is how it was for me- but i have heard people say the reverse as being what is "correct". find out at 20 weeks if you want- or wait until baby comes out (so much more FUN!!)
