Gender Guessing

Since it's fun and I can, I figured I'd try out some old wives' tales and whatnot to try and determine gender. We're supposed to find out at our April 21 sonogram, so now's the time! I've already had one friend weigh in and say she's sure I'm having a girl. The first quiz I found covered most of the stuff, which was kind of nice. heh

Childbirth.org quiz:
You have a 44% chance of having a boy. And you have a 55% chance of having a girl. 
And Here's Why...
You are carrying the extra weight out front, so it's a boy.
The hair on your legs is not growing any faster during your preganacy, so it's a girl.
Boys are carried low. You are going to have a boy.
Sleeping in a bed with your pillow to the north indicates that you will be having a boy. (truthfully, I had no idea which way my pillow faces)
Your feet are not colder than they were before pregnancy. You are having a girl.
You refuse to eat the heel of a loaf of bread. You are having a girl.
Dad-to-be hasn't been gaining weight along with Mom-to-be, so it will be a girl.
The maternal grandmother doesn't have gray hair (dyed or natural), so a girl will be born.
You didn't have morning sickness early in pregnancy, so it will be a boy.
You are looking particularly good during pregnancy. Therefore, it must be a boy, because girls steal their mother's looks.
Your chest development has been quite dramatic during pregnancy. You should expect a girl.
Since the sum of the mother's age at conception and the number of the month of conception is even, it will be a boy.
A needle on a thread held over your belly moves in circles, so you will have a boy.
Your urine is a dull yellow color, so you will have a girl.
You have a craving for salty or sour foods, which means that it is a boy. (actually, I crave salty and sweet - it just depends on the moment)
Your nose hasn't changed during pregnancy, which indicates a girl.
You have been craving fruits, so it is a girl.
Your baby's heart rate is 140 or more beats per minute, so it's a girl. (and, again, I didn't really remember and didn't have my pictures handy to remind me what it was at the last sonogram)

This one says boy.

Zits Mean It's a Girl
And if that's true? Totally a girl.
