There has not been any definitive scientific research that suggests a connection between having certain pregnancy symptoms, or the severity of pregnancy symptoms, and the gender of your baby. Having said that, many women believe that their pregnancy symptoms can indeed predict the gender of your baby. Even if it isn?t the most reliable method, it can be fun to consider your pregnancy symptoms in relation to your baby?s gender while you wait for a more reliable method, such as an ultrasound, to tell you with more certainty what the gender of your baby will be. One pregnancy symptom that has been connected with the gender of your baby has to do with cravings. It is thought that, if you are craving sweets like chocolate, that the gender of your baby will be female. In contrast, your baby would be a boy if you are craving sour things, such as raw lemon juice. Unfortunately, many women crave a combination of things that can be both sweet and sour, making it harder to predict the gender of your baby from this symptom. Another pregnancy symptom that is thought to predict the gender of your baby is acne. If you break out in severe acne, it is predicted that you will have a girl. If your acne is mild, then you will have a boy. The most common pregnancy symptom, morning sickness, may be able to be used to predict the gender of your baby as well. If you are severely sick, you will be having a boy. Otherwise, you will be having a girl. Some people think that the timing of morning sickness is able to predict the gender of your baby, too, with morning sickness in the morning being a boy and morning sickness at night being a girl. Hair growth is another pregnancy symptom that can predict the gender of your baby. If you are having a boy, you should watch out because you are more likely to grow body hair during pregnancy. Conversely, if you are having a girl, you should not expect to grow body hair during pregnancy.

our baby should be in position with his or her head on your pelvic bone. The lanugo is continuing to shed as this week comes and goes. If you haven?t given birth, your baby is continuing to grow. He or she could be up to 20 inches in length (normally they are between 17-20 inches by this week) and weighing close to or just over 7 lbs. All of your baby?s organs have matured (except for the brain and lungs) and are functioning on their own. The brain and lungs continue to develop and mature after childbirth and into childhood. A major and new development during this 38th week is that the tear ducts begin to form. The gender can easily be identified now, as the love organs have fully matured. Expectant parents who do not wish to know the gender of the baby before childbirth will definitely need to resist looking at the ultrasounds now. Your baby is reacting to sounds, clenching his or her fists, and preparing for childbirth. It is said that girls are smaller than boys and rest lower in the abdomen, but every pregnancy is unique.
