even though we know now that a baby's gender is decided at the moment of conception, i thought these old wives' tales were fun. they tell you how to influence the gender of your baby.
1. if you prefer a girl, just sleep with a pink ribbon under your pillow. if you want a boy, then a blue ribbon will do the trick.
2. if dad puts sugar in his boots as you are about to deliver, it will be a girl. if he puts salt in his shoes as your labor pains start, it's a boy.
3. swedish folklore says your pregnancy will shift into male gear if you carry a garlic bud with you wherever you go. for a girl, carry an onion.
