Maternal blood pressure before conception predicts sex of baby

A million and one old wives' tales predict the sex of an unborn child in early pregnancy.

For example, according to some, if your bump is high, you are having a girl, but if it is low, a boy is on the way.

Similarly, if you crave ice cream every day, you can expect a female. Others believe that sex can be predicted by mixing urine with a tablespoon of Drano - if it turns green, it's a girl, and if blue, a boy.

Another commonly held myth is that women pregnant with girls are more likely to break out in zits.

Unsurprisingly, none of the above are backed up by scientific research. To date, there seems to be no way to predict the sex that a mother will go on to produce.

Stepping away from humankind, much research has been carried out on ways to predict the sex of farm animals' offspring. In cows (and other animals), for instance, the Trivers-Willard hypothesis states that female animals in a better physical condition are more likely to produce male offspring.
