Were the old wives tales true?

Like if you crave fruit your having a girl or if your carrying high then its suppose to be a girl...

I had both of those and i had a baby girl last year :)

  • Honestly, no, they aren't. Look at it this way, every wives tale has a 50 / 50 chance of being true with each baby. You only hear about / remember the ones that get so called "proven" true, without really thinking about the ones that were proven wrong.

    Honestly, the only way (other than birth) to know for sure is to test the amnio fluid. Though ultrasounds can be pretty accurate, too.
