Genuine Symptoms of Baby Boy

1. Morning Sickness:

Every new mom knows this fact that morning sickness is the prior symptom of pregnancy and most of the women feel this during pregnancy.

According to myths, if you are having a boy you feel less morning sickness and feel smoothness during morning cramps. And if you carrying a baby girl you may feel a high level of morning sickness due to high hormonal ups and downs.


Morning sickness varies woman to woman and scientifically it never reveals about baby’s gender. There is no proof or evidence that has been found related to morning sickness and s*x of a baby.

2. Heartbeat:

Many people claim if you take a look at the heartbeat of your baby under 140/minute you may be pregnant with a boy and if a heartbeat is more than 140 it is a girl.


There is no such evidence found in the researchers that claim this reality. During the first trimester, the heartbeat can’t decide the baby’s gender.     

The heart rate between 120 to 160bpm is a normal recorded rate in the fetal.  

3. Skin and Hair type:

According to myth, carrying a baby girl can steal mother’s beauty and women may get pimples, pigmentation, and dull skin tone and if you are having a baby body your skin becomes smooth, flawless so as the hairs become lustrous and shiny and strong.
