I remember reading this when pregnant with my son, that the HcG MoM levels from your first trimester screening are a pretty solid indicator of the sex of your baby.

I know it's something that they test during your first trimester bloodwork, the one you get between 10-13 weeks. One of the levels is called HcG MoM and a level below 1.0 is usually indicitave of a boy (with my son, my level was .84) and over 1.0 is a girl. I bet if you google it, they can explain it better than I can lol. I know of about 10 people that it was right for and none that it was wrong so I'm super curious...
