Apparently, there is new research showing that what a women eats before pregnancy, may affect the gender of the baby. When Lon told me about this, I thought he was joking but it was published in a British medical journal. Here are a few highlights of the study:

  • Eating breakfast cereal daily makes you more likely to have a boy.
  • Eating Potassium rich foods also increase likelihood of having a boy.
  • The women who had boys also consumed more calories than those who had girls.
  • Not skipping breakfast or meals, could also help the sperm carrying the male chromosome.

If hot cereals count, all signs point to me having boys one day.
