Silly Gender Predicting

post #1 of 41
Thread Starter 

Last pregnancy, I had a psychic (from Ebay) tell me boy. She was a girl. 


But hey, she has a success rate of around 50%... lol... as does ANYTHING.

 

So... what silly gender predictions have you done?

 

My most recent:

I looked at a Chinese gender chart. It said girl and I have a feeling it's right but I guess we'll find out in 6 months ;)

I've done the Chinese Gender Chart, the ring test, the peeing on baking soda test, and looked at most of the old wive's tales tests. Pretty sure there's either a hiding twin or I'm having a hermaphrodite.

I've done...

the Chinese chart~ Girl

Old wives tales quizes ~ Girl

 

We shall see when baby is born.:)

 

Want to do the ring test, and what is the baking soda test?

Chinese calendar says boy, and baking soda test says girl. We're sort of hoping for a girl. So we'll see (hopefully on Feb. 10 when we have the fetal survey).

Chinese calendar and baking soda test both said girl. Ring test was inconclusive (need to repeat it, I think). Having my NT scan next week and may see if they can get a profile shot of the "nub" so I can guess from that smile.gif After last time, when all signs (heartrate, how I carried, cravings) all pointed to boy (she was a she), I'm skeptical of all the others, though I love guessing!

(Baking soda test: put a little baking soda in a cup, add pee. If it bubbles/foams vigorously, that's supposed to mean boy; if it does nothing, girl. Apparently you can do something similar w bleach, but I'm a little apprehensive about mixing bleach and ammonia...!)

I think there's another one with Drano, too. Nothing like mixing dangerous chemicals during pregnancy. ;)

I've heard of one with red cabbage too! Which sounds a little better than bleach or drano -- to me at least! All the signs with my daughter were wrong and pointed towards a boy -- even the Chinese predictor was wrong!

Chinese gender calendar was correct for my first two, and says this one is a girl... Which I'm kind of hoping it is!

 

My first two pgs (boy and girl) were SO different, and this one has aspects from both. I really hope I can not give in and wait until birth to find out.

post #10 of 41

The Chinese gender predictor and the old wives tales questions both say girl. I should try the baking soda test the next time I have to pee. I had a few dreams all in one night early on in the pregnancy that this was a girl, so maybe it is! 

 

ETA: Baking soda didn't bubble at all! 3 for girl so far.

When you talk about FREE gender predictor, nothing is better than the Chinese Gender Chart. You can see in most of the baby and pregnancy forums, and many people are amazed by the chart!

post #12 of 41
Well that chart says my first child should have been a boy, and she is definitely a girl. Though it is right for my second child, boy. The chat says boys this time too... So if it is right every other pregnancy then I'm having a girl orngtongue.gif

If Chinese calender was right, my daughter would be 9... but alas... he's not a girl. There's no possible way that it was even "just a month off" the entire year he could have been conceived short of the month I had a miscarriage, all said girl.

 

It's actually said girl for all of my kids (depending on the one I use, and which possible date of conception I use for my youngest, as if it was before midnight she should be a boy and if its after midnight she should be a girl) and this one's no different. 

But I don't trust it any more than I trust the asking a computer or any other silly gender prediction. After all, if it were that accurate... how does it not account for boy/girl fraternal twins and higher count multiples?

Meh, I think they are just fun silly things to do. I don't take any of it seriously. I mean, u/s can be wrong at gender predicting too lol!

 

Chinese Chart says girl (it was right with my first 2, boys, so I am HOPING they got the girl right too lol. We are hoping for a little more estrogen in this household!)

 

I will try the baking soda test. I could never understand people doing the Draino & bleach test. Like, WTH???

And for more sillyness, Ill probably try the old wives quiz. But again, just for fun.

I've heard of this gender predicting test you can get at the drug stores in the US. We don't have that product here in Canada, so I forget what it's called. It measures the levels of something or other in your urine to determine the gender. If you do it far enough along, it's supposed to be fairly accurate. I want to say I read that it's 80% or something? Have any of you ladies tried one of those tests? I'm curious as to how accurate they actually are.

Heartrate and Chinese calender both say girl. I am having my 20 week ultrasound in Feb. and I think we might take a peek this time around.

post #17 of 41

Oh, I forgot to say I had my first-ever tarot card reading a month or so ago, and she said boy as well. So there's another "data point." lol.gif

post #18 of 41

Chinese test said boy and I think it's right. 

post #19 of 41

Heartrates have been more in girl range. Nice and high. We'll see what they are today.

post #20 of 41

One of the old wives' tale predictors said 60% boy. The other I couldn't complete because it asked about baby kicking and things like that (too early to know).
