If you have heartburn your baby will be a redhead.

Yeah, I had raging heartburn and got a dirty blonde

I've heard lots of heartburn means a full head of hair. Was true in the case of my son. He was born with a full head of hair.

I actually read that in "What to Expect"! They said that the hormones which cause you to have heartburn are the same ones that cause hair growth for your baby, so they say that one is true.

I have also heard--not read-- that if you crave fruits/citrus, you're going to have a girl, and if you crave meat, you're going to have a boy.

Wow that one was true for me... I craved fruit with DD and the last time around I craved meat sooo bad and it was a boy... Can't wait for major cravings to start this time!! haha

-Some believe that getting acne during your pregnancy indicates you're carrying a girl.
-If you have morning sickness early in pregnancy, it's sure to be a girl

I've heard that if you are sick as a dog during your pregnancy you're having a girl, and if you have a boy, your pregnancy will go smoothly.

Wanna know the reasoning? Because it's absurd.

The reason you're sick if you're having a girl, is b/c girls will take all your beauty away for themselves. The reason you're fine if you're having a boy, is b/c boy's want their mama's to be gorgeous/okay.

LOL! Not kidding...someone told me this--I'm not making this up.

I heard that you can sometimes tell what you are carrying by the heart rate..

I had acne bad with my first and i had a boy.
This time morning sickness is way early for me. (This one I'm hoping is true)

Here are some that I have heard:
~If your husband puts on weight during your pregnancy, then you will be having a girl. If he doesn't put on a pound, then you're carrying a boy.
~ Bright yellow urine-boy, dull urine-girl.

So was my son and I had terrible heartburn...think that one might actually be true!

I craved apples and oranges and I had a boy so I don't think the citrus one is true!
