Want to try some gender predicting wive's tales for fun?
What is the pencil test?
What I've tried:
Chinese gender prediction chart: GIRL (correct with DS)
Baking soda test: BOY (did not try with DS)
Ring test version 1 (like the pencil test): At my baby shower w/DS it said BOY-GIRL-BOY, when I tried it just before ovulation this cycle, it said BOY-BOY-GIRL-BOY
Ring test version 2: GIRL
My initial intuition (right after seeing the second line): BOY
My current feelings: GIRL
DS's prediction: GIRL
Ring test version 1/pencil test: This test will tell you the genders of ALL past/current/future children...I've heard that some people will see their miscarriages and some will not.
Get a thread/string/thin chain about 12in long and attach a heavy item to one end (like a pencil or a ring...use a needle to poke the thread through the pencil's eraser. Hang the object over the wrist of your dominant hand. The object will start swinging, up/down for boy, left/right for girl and circles between children.
So, when my aunt did the pencil version on me at my baby shower, it went: up/down, circle, left/right, circle, up/down = BOY-GIRL-BOY When I did it myself, about a month ago, with my wedding ring it went: up/down, circle, up/down, circle, left/right, circle, up/down = BOY-BOY-GIRL-BOY
Ring test version 2: This test will tell you the gender of a baby you are currently pregnant with.
String a ring just like in the 1st ring test and hold it above your pregnant belly, while laying down. If the ring swings in circles it means BOY, side to side/up and down means GIRL
I'm wondering if a miscarriage was picked up when I did the first ring test, but not when my aunt did it on me? Or maybe my childbearing 'destiny' has changed since the first test? Well, I just did it again and it said BOY-GIRL-BOY-BOY?? Interesting...
I haven't done any tests but I have a friend who has predicted EVERY friends' birth correctly. He predicts girl, and I also have strong girl vibes so we'll see!
The odd thing is that friend and one other accurate-predictor friend both said....are you suuuuuure there is only one in there? They are both getting twin vibes, and I have a family history of twins, but there was definitely only one babe on the u/s. Bummer!
