Hi Everyone!

I’m very excited about this week’s episode which is about a topic that is not often discussed: Gender Prediction.

In the episode, I’ll share 10 very common Old Wives’ Tales for predicting gender (or sex, as some prefer to say). You’ll learn vocabulary related to the characteristics of pregnancy such as mood swingsbreak outscravings and I’ll also share our results to these tests within the episode.

Is it a Boy or Girl?

Since our 20-week anatomy test was this morning (after I recorded), you’ll be able to see the result on Instagram. I don’t want to spoil it here for those of you who wish to listen to the episode first. We’re very excited! 🙂
