by babyfever25I'm not a mother, but I definitely think this is interesting to know in case I decide to have kids in the future, or in case any of you are expecting a baby sometime in the near future.
According to this New York Times article, the answer to the question above is most likely a big Y-E-S.
There are plenty of claims about how to know whether or not the baby you'll have will be a boy or a girl. The most popular one I've heard is if the baby bump is low, the chances that the baby will be a boy are higher.
There was a recent study done at the University of Washington. They compared women who were hospitalized (a condition called hyperemesis gravidarum) after experiencing morning sickness to those who didn't get ill. What they found is that those who had severe morning sickness in their first trimester increased their chances of having a baby girl. Why? Researchers said it could be in the hormones, but who knows? Isn't that some interesting news, though?
Did you "know" if you were having a boy or a girl? From your experience, would you agree or disagree with this claim?
