Yes!: The hormone HCG produced by the placenta, turns on both the mother's ovaries and fetuses" ovaries or testes. The infant, if male, has testes are turned on by hcg, producing testosterone which enters the blood stream of the mother. "an old wives tale, " that a mother with child who is highly interested in sex carrying a boy versus girl, has some scientific basis!
