Pink Brain, Blue Brain by Lise Eliot has quite an interesting section on whether it is possible to predict gender. The answer is basically no without a scan or similar, though apparently if mothers who don't know are asked to guess the gender of their baby, the more educated they are the more likely they are to guess correctly and guesses are more likely to be correct if they are based on gut instinct or dreams rather than on things like the position of the bump. There's interesting stuff in there too about how people treat boy and girl babies differently as well based on various experiments in which they pretend baby boys are girls and vice versa.
