Finding out the sex allows for better planning in choosing a name, decorating the nursery and buying baby clothes (not to mention the fun new trend of gender-reveal parties), but keeping it a surprise can be a great motivator during labor and delivery, and comes with that magical moment of reveal when the baby makes his or her entrance into the world. If you can hardly wait to learn the sex, check out these 10 gender-predicting old wives' tales.
