In older days, when there was no advanced technology of finding out whether a woman was expecting a boy or a girl, there were many methods which old ladies used to predict the gender of the unborn baby. They used many observations methods to make these predictions and in many cases, they turned out to be correct. Even in this modern era where one can get gender information, many people rely on these old methods.
