    While you're pregnant, you'll hear a number of theories about whether it's a boy or a girl in there - none of them wholly reliable!

    Here's what the old wives say...

  • Boy bump/Girl bump

    Said to be a boy if:

    You're carrying all out front

    You're carrying low

    You tie a needle or your wedding ring to some thread, hang it over your stomach and it swings from side to side.
