What could be more fun than trying to guess baby's gender?

Once your bump starts showing, it seems like everyone from your well-meaning mother-in-law to strangers at the grocery store wants to predict if you're having a boy or a girl. And let's be honest, even if you want to be surprised on delivery day, you probably can't help but wonder, too.

Do your salty or sweet pregnancy food cravings change with a girl? Do your headaches in pregnancy mean you're having a boy? Check out these old wives' tales and gender myths to find signs of your baby's gender. Sure, they're far from foolproof, but they're a lot more fun than the more-reliable amniocentesis or ultrasound!

Disclaimer: these tricks are not science-based and are just for fun. But go ahead, give 'em a try!
