There are many wives tales that
surround pregnancy, and just about everything that happens during the nine
months is thought to be a sign of the sex of the baby. One of the more prominent
old wives tales is that women who suffer from morning sickness for long periods
of time will be having a girl.
This is just an old wives tale and there is truly
nothing to this. The hormones released during pregnancy cause morning sickness,
and these hormones are released whether the baby is a boy or girl. Some women
just happen to be more sensitive to the increasing amounts of hormones and stay
sick for a good portion of their pregnancy.
Many of these old wives tales say that female
children are responsible for making their mothers feel and look ill because
women are always in competition. This old wives tale has been around for
thousands of years, as symptoms were explained away to provide comfort.
