"It's a [insert gender here]!"
However, just for fun I thought I'd go through a few old wives' tales and see if they swung one way or another.
Baking soda test
For this one you pee in one cup and put 3 tablespoons of baking soda in a separate cup. Pour your urine into the cup with the baking soda. If it fizzes, it’s a boy. If there’s no fizzle-it is a girl.
No pictures of this one because... well... urine... But no fizzle.
Wedding ring test
This is probably one of the best known ones. Tie a string around your wedding ring and then lay back. Dangle the ring right above your belly. If the ring swings in a back and forth like a pendulum, it's a boy. If it swings in a noticeable circular motion, it's a girl.
This test is based on the Chinese lunar calendar. You take the mother's age at conception and the month of conception and then look at them on the chart.

The saying behind this is that: Girl's steal their mother's beauty, boy's enhance it. I haven't had any spots so...
The Mayan calendar
If both the age at conception and the year the baby was conceived are either even or odd, those kicks are coming from a girl. If one number is even and the other is odd, it's a boy.
If you have horrendous morning sickness in the first trimester, it's a girl. If it's not so bad, it's a boy. I didn't have any at all so maybe I should call this one a dud?
Another popular one is cravings: if you crave salty/savoury/meat you're having a boy. If you crave sweet/fruit you're having a girl. Again, I didn't have any cravings, so I don't have a result for this one.

Did you try out any old wives' tales? And were they accurate?
