Baby's Heartbeat predicts if it's a boy or girl.

High Heartrate = girl
Low Heart rate = boy.

False myth but very fun. ;-)

Craving sweets = girl.

I don't believe this one, but many people are convinced I'm having a girl because I can't seem to get enough sugar.

I can tell you safely that it is fiction. I've had many of them done over the years and the last couple of times it told me I was only going to have 2 children..... and that was after I already 3!!! LOL
