Some people believe that you can predict your baby's sex by mixing your urine with a little Drano.
If the fetal heart rate is under 140 beats per minute (BPM), it's a boy.
Carrying low or forward means a boy; high or back means a girl.
What you eat before conceiving can affect the sex of your child.
If you want a boy?
Eat more meat (the redder the better).
Stick with salty snacks - pretzels, chips, and so on.
Dads-to-be: Stock up on soda (especially cola drinks).
If you want a girl
Both partners should eat lots of fish and veggies.
Give in to your chocolate craving (or just eat sweets in general).
Caring for babies and toddlers and general pregnancy tales:
Eating too much watermelon will make your child be born with a birth mark.
Don't breastfeed a toddler during pregnancy because the new baby needs all the nourishment it can get.
Giving Birth: It is better to cut than tear.
If you deny a pregnant woman the food she craves you will get a stye.
You need to drink plenty of water or the baby will get dirty in its sac of water.
If you hold your hands above your head you'll strangle the baby with the umbilical cord.
Pregnant women shouldn't take baths.
The coffee myth - If a baby is born with cafe au lait spots (light-brown birthmarks), the mother drank too much coffee or had unfulfilled cravings during pregnancy.
This site also mentions the "great sex" myth and that there's some scientific truth to it maybe. Our certified nurse midwife also mentioned this... Sex as a means to induce labor. She also mentioned deep lunges, which DID help my wife start contractions.
