Whether you want to find out the sex of your baby-to-be in advance is a personal decision every pregnant person has to make on their own (and/or with the help of a partner who is maybe being slowly crushed by the suspense of not knowing). You might be counting the days until your 20-week ultrasound to find out whether you’re expecting a boy or a girl. Or you might want to maintain the element of surprise and keep yourself — and everyone else — guessing until the day your babe comes into the world. If you don’t know what sort of kid you’re expecting, these old wives’ tales for predicting a baby’s sex might steer you in one direction or the other. We can’t promise they’re accurate, but hey — there’s a 50/50 chance. (It’s still probably best to know for sure before you start getting everything personalized with your tot’s name, though — if that’s your kind of thing.)
