    Wow! good guess works. And I am sure these help in some cases. Our time, we would say if the mom looked glowing, quite round, and happy, it would be a girl. Vice versa, if the mom looked always tired and fatigued, would loose weight, be irritated all the time, it would be a boy.


    Indeed, a good post. Keep up with guesses!
