pregnancy acne = girl? Old wives tale?!

Ok, a couple people have told me this now and even though I think it's probably not true, maybe it is? I have had serious breakouts with this pregnancy and people have told me that it's a sign I'm having a girl...is there any truth to this? Has anyone else experience horrible pregnancy acne?
