Are you having trouble waiting until your 18-20 week ultrasound to find out the sex of your baby? Celebrity moms are falling back on old wives' tales to help predict the gender of their babies. These tricks are not always accurate, but they sure are fun!
When Kate Hudson was pregnant with her second child, she told the Today show she used old wives' tales to try to predict the sex of her baby.
"You get a ring and [you tie a strand of] your hair and put it over your belly and it swings," she said. "Everybody has different methods... it goes in a circle if it's a girl and it usually goes back and forth if it's a boy. It's saying it's a girl, and I'm carrying so differently than I did with Ryder."
Old wives' tales predict if you are carrying low you are having a boy, while carrying high means you are having a girl.
Was Hudson's prediction of a girl accurate? She gave birth to her second boy, Bingham, in July.
Jessica Simpson is using her intuition to predict her baby's sex. "I think it's a girl," she recently confessed. Her fiance Eric Johnson, however, thinks it is a boy.
