Its easily possible to be right less than half of the time.

...but I doubt anyone's keeping score.

And if you guess 'female' you're right ever-so-slightly MORE than half the time!

Unborn babies should not be having sex.

CHANCE DOESN'T WORK THAT WAY!

If you get the new genetic test "Verifi", you can find out the sex of the baby by 10 weeks.

When my wife was pregnant, #5 started a holy war at the office, trying to interpret the morning sickness.  I thought those women were going to have a knife fight or something.

I'm pretty sure males outnumber females at birth slightly...

Ah, yep!   http://www.infoplease.com/ipa/A0005083.html

The reason females take over so quickly is because 1) boys are more likely to have genetic diseases, 2) boys are more likely to do something stupid and die early 3) men die younger on average from old age stuff...

/very scientific...

Actually Boys are weaker at birth.  I believe L&D nurses call it wimpy white boy syndrome.  White males are the weakest at birth

Listen to mom's belly with a stethoscope. If you hear non-stop talking, it's a girl. If you hear fart noises followed by giggling, it's a boy.

Yeah, but that's 50% times 9.  You now have a 450% chance of being correct.

"So I've been praying to Joe for about a year now. And I noticed something. I noticed that all the prayers I used to offer to God, and all the prayers I now offer to Joe Pesci, are being answered at about the same 50% rate. Half the time I get what I want, half the time I don't. Same as God, 50-50. Same as the four-leaf clover and the horseshoe, the wishing well and the rabbit's foot, same as the Mojo Man, same as the Voodoo Lady who tells you your fortune by squeezing the goat's testicles, it's all the same: 50-50. So just pick your superstition, sit back, make a wish, and enjoy yourself. "
