Myths

Seemingly from the beginning of time mothers and fathers have wondered the gender of their baby. Many predicting gender myths have spread over the years so there are a lot of old wives tales on if you are going to have a baby boy or a baby girl. Pretty much these are all fun gender predicting methods and the accuracy of any of these gender myths being true in any individual case is most likely coincidence. Often a women's hunch is often right more often than any of these prediction methods. Statistics have shown that women with a higher level of education completed are more likely to guess correctly the gender of their baby.
