That you can tell the gender by how high or low you carried the baby.

The guy that works with my husband kept telling me that if I ate a lot of sauces my son would be born with baby acne. His wife had their son a few months prior to us having ours. Frankly I eat a lot of pasta and a lot of sauces goes along with it and he was born baby acne free.

I was told this one too. I had hardly any heartburn and my son had a full head of hair.

If your hair on your legs grew faster than it did before you were pregnant you would have a girl.

My aunt tried to tell me that if we tied a coin to a string and held it over my belly if it swung back and forth it was a boy and if it swung in a circle it was a girl.  She was positve I was having a boy since that's what this string test said....even though my OB already told us we were having a girl.  She was so convinced that she was right that she ended up paying for a 3-D ultrasound that only confirmed that she was wrong lol.
