i) How low can you go?

Rumor has it that if you are carrying your baby high, it's a girl. Carrying low? Stock up on blue. Similar tales say if you carry in front, you've got yourself a little boy, and if you expand horizontally, it's a girl.

ii) Body of evidence

Legends say that if you are having a little girl, she'll steal your beauty. So, if you've got acne and other not-so-pretty skin blemishes, you've got a little princess coming your way. Dry hands and cold feet are signs of a boy. So, if you've got these ailments, break out the baby blue.

iii) With this ring

Here's a fun one— take off your wedding ring, tie it to a piece of string, and hang it over your belly. If it swings in a circle, you are promised a boy; back and forth indicates a girl.

iv) Beating heart

Your baby's heart rate might be an indicator of its gender. If your little one's heart rate is under 140 beats per minute, you're having a little boy. If it's over, get ready for your little girl!

 v) Sweet tooth

Craving sweets? According to some, that means you’re going to have a little girl. Salty and savoury cravings indicate a boy.

vi) What's in a number?

Chinese birth charts use your age at conception and the month you conceived to determine the sex of your baby. http://www.babycenter.com/chinese-gender-predictor

The Mayans used a similar method. They looked at your age at conception and the year your baby was conceived. If both are even or odd, it's a girl. If one is even and one is odd, oh baby — it's a boy!

vii) What's his excuse?

Has your spouse been indulging in your pregnancy cravings, too? If your hubby packs on a little sympathy weight, the tales say you're in for a sugary-sweet little girl.

 viii) Morning sickness signals

Morning sickness means pink. If you're stricken with a queasy stomach during your first trimester, think ribbons and bows. If you sail through your pregnancy with nary an upset stomach, it's blue all the way.

 ix) Unlock the secret

If you've got a preggo friend, try this little experiment on her. Place a key in front of her and ask her to pick it up.  If she grabs it by the narrow part, she'll have a sweet little girl. If she picks it up by the round part, she'll have an adorable little boy.

So, all you moms-to-be — how many of these tests held true? Did they predict the gender of your little bundle of joy?
