Ok, so I did my research and I thought let me share these! Let's compile a list of our Old Wives Tales.
Pick up a single key. If you pick it up by the round part you will have a boy. If you pick up the long narrow part you will have a girl. If you pick it up in the middle twins are on the way!
The Mayans determined the sex of the baby by taking the mother's age at conception, and the year of conception. If both numbers are even or both are odd then it's a girl; if one number is even and one odd then it's a boy.
Eat a clove of raw garlic. If the smell of garlic seeps out of your pores, it's a boy. If no garlic smell is detected at all, it's a girl. This test is no for the faint of heat or stomach for that matter. Well, can you eat a clove of garlic?
If your legs resemble tree trunks, it's a boy. If they're trim and fit, it's a girl.
If you crave the heels of the bread, you will have a boy. If you like the middle, a girl is on the way.
If your hands start to get dry and chapped, it will be a boy; but if your hands are softer during pregnancy, you will have a girl.
If you can't tell you're pregnant from the back, you're having a boy. If you look pregnant all over and from every angle, it's a girl.
A craving for salty foods is a sure sign of a boy, and craving sweets is a sign that a girl is on the way.
If you experience increased acne break out on the face and chest you will have a girl.
Suspend a wedding ring on a chain over your belly. If it swings back and forth, it's a girl. If it swings around in circles, she will have a boy.
If a toddle boy shows interest in a pregnant woman, the mom-to-be is going to have a girl. If he ignores the pregnant woman, she will have a boy.
Which side do you lie on when you are resting? If it's the left, then it's a boy. If you're more comfortable on your right side then it's a girl.
When someone asks to see your hand, if you show them palms up, it's a girl; palms down, a boy.
There are lots, lets see if I remember some. Mother craves sweets, girl if mom craves sour or salty, boy.
you are carrying your baby low
the baby is very active

a wedding ring suspended on a string over your belly rocks back and forth and not in a circle
