Some 17th-century doctors dipped a ribbon into a pot of a woman's urine; if the smell of the ribbon made the woman gag or feel nauseous, she was presumed pregnant, mentalfloss.com reports. Before the 1920s, there were virtually no advances in pregnancy tests, most of which relied on old wives' tales and other hokum.
