Pregnancy is definitely one of the most happy moments for couples. Is it going to be a boy? Or a girl? Those are common questions to be asked by couples, especially when it will be the first child. In this modern science, there are so many methods out there to diagnose the gender of your baby. One of the funnest methods is probably the pregnancy gender quiz. But this question will always follow your decision to take the quiz: Is it accurate? Can a pregnancy gender quiz detect the gender of my baby?
Great, so you have just found out that you are pregnant. Congratulations! And after browsing through internet, you might stumbled upon a site that offers a pregnancy gender quiz. What is it? Can we actually predict our baby’s gender through a quiz? And why should I take the quiz in the first place?
Pregnancy gender quiz is actually an ancient method used by our ancestors to predict the baby-to born’s sex. Although surveys found that 50% of parents-to-be do not want to know their baby’s sex until after the birth, there are couples who wants to make a plan for the new member of the family. By knowing the sex of the baby, they can start to shop for baby’s clothing, and to prepare the nursery room. And of course, they can search beautiful names for the baby, so that they have prepared with a name when the baby born!
So, taking a pregnancy gender quiz that is available on many pregnancy websites, seems fun and exciting. There are some questions involving the mother’s physic appearance change during the pregnancy. The most common questions are whether the mom is carrying high or low, and the belly shape: like watermelon or basketball. Or general questions like: whether she look good or not too good, the breast shape: getting bigger or just the same, etc. The quiz also asks the mood conditions and the mother’s own intuition of the baby she’s carrying, will it boy or girl?
The more scientific questions are also included. Some of them could be: the mother’s average heart rate, urine color, and whether the mom has morning sickness early in the pregnancy. Sometimes the quiz also includes some rather unrelated questions, like: ‘when someone ask you to show your hands, will you show: palms up or palms down?’ or how do you pick up your mug, on the handle or on the body of the mug? Well, like I said, pregnancy gender quiz is might be something fun to do to ease the uncomfortable feeling a mom used to have during her pregnancy. However, quiz is certainly a non medical method, thus offers an inaccurate result to detect the baby’s gender.
Anyway, why don’t you just live your pregnancy moments and wait until the birth, when both of you will have the sweetest surprise of your life, no matter if it is a boy or a girl? But if you really need to know it to make some planning, the most accurate and safe way to detect baby’s gender is ultrasound or sonogram test done by trained health practitioners.
So, take any of the pregnancy gender quiz for your fun, but rely on the results given by your doctors only!
