Do you beleive any old wives tales about knowing the sex of the baby without scan?

The reason i ask is cos according to old wives tales im having a boy. I have: lop-sided boobs, coarse black hair on my legs and a very hairy stomach. I'm actually hoping for a boy. But, i'm going to find in two weeks at the scan anyway.

But, has anyone ever actually guessed the correct sex due to these ideas? or do you think its a load of bullshit?

No bashing, Just for fun.

  • The majority of them were wrong for us. Three boys, three totally different pregnancies...totally different symptoms, etc.

    Oh, and the Chinese charts? You guessed it! Wrong all three times! lol

  • You get a ring (usually wedding ring) tie a piece of string to it and hold it over you bump. If it spins its a.....uh, cant remember. If it spins its X Gender if it swings from side to side its X gender.

  • my SIL did the ring test, looked at the chinese gender chart and the (baby's) heart rate test...they all said girl...she found out last Tuesday that she is having a girl (I'm so excited btw) so for her, they were all true?
