One of the most exciting times in the lives of parents is when they’re expecting a child. So much speculation flies around about whether it’s going to be a girl or a boy. Doctors can tell the gender of an unborn child during an ultrasound. But you’d be surprised to find ways of guessing the gender of your child even without an ultrasound to tell you. For one, there’s the Chinese gender prediction test. There are many other “signs” that signal toward a particular gender of your child.
FeedFond has collected 18 signs that show if you’re having a boy or a girl. Read on to find out more.

#9 Foot temperature
If your feet feel cold, it’s a boy. If the temperature doesn’t change, it’s a girl.

If you gain weight all over the body, then it’s a girl and if all your weight gain is concentrated in your belly, then a boy is on its way.
#7 Body hair
Body hair that grows fast and thick indicates a boy, while no changes in body hair indicate it’s a girl.
#6 Hair texture
Glossy, thick hair indicates you’re having a boy, while limp, dull hair signals the arrival of a girl.

Mix two tablespoons of baking soda with your urine. If it fizzes, it’s a boy. Otherwise, it’s a girl.
#4 Linea nigra
Linea nigra is a straight line some women get down their belly. If the line stops below the belly button, it’s a girl. If the linea nigra continues above the belly button, then it’s a boy.

Only a baby boy can give you a pregnancy glow.
Carrying a girl might give you acne, while if you don’t break out, chances are that it’s a boy.
