Maternal blood pressure before conception predicts gender of baby

A recently published study from China finds that a mother’s blood pressure before conception may influence the gender of her future child. If the results are replicated, this marks a fascinating discovery.

A million and one old wives’ tales predict the gender of an unborn child in early pregnancy.

For example, according to some, if your bump is high, you are having a girl, but if it is low, a boy is on the way.

Similarly, if you crave ice cream every day, you can expect a female. Others believe that gender can be predicted by mixing urine with a tablespoon of Drano – if it turns green, it’s a girl, and if blue, a boy.
