Thought I would start a thread where we list what we've tried and the outcomes. A few months from now, we can come back and see which worked! (All in fun)

Baking Soda + Pee test = boy
Chinese Gender = girl
HB - 169 = boy
Hair growth = boy
Cravings - sour = boy
Severeness of MS = girl
Evening vs morning sickness = girl
Acne - mild = boy
Placenta on L = girl

Re: The Old Wives Tales

Yeah...I don't know how all these things work. I never tried any with my other babes. Someone care to explain some to me? I'm eight weeks today if it matters.

Cool!

Let me check everything first - I haven't done a few of these like the baking soda pee test.

Re: The Old Wives Tales

I don't anything about these...
I am PG with twins too so maybe that makes a difference.
How do I know what indicates boy or girl?

Chinese chart says BOY (not always right with me)

Needle Method says GIRL (always right)

Haven't heard the HB yet.

Re: The Old Wives Tales

Out of 7 kids the needle is always right? Wow! I haven't done that one yet. Tell me how you do it, please?

You stick a needle in a sharpened pencil's eraser and tread the needle. I think someone else has to do it to you. Hold the string over the inner wrist the point touching the skin, then gently lift. It tells you how many kids you will have and the genders. Circle=girl. Straight (hand to elbow)=boy. Straight(opposite of boy)=twins.
It will stop and start up again after each child and stop completely. I did it years ago and it always said 8. I'm preggo for #8......I wander if I'm done?!?

Re: The Old Wives Tales

The inner wrist part is confusing me, you hole the string with one hand under the inner wrist of the other hand over your belly? Or you hold the point of the pencil over your inner wrist, no belly involved? Does someone else have to hold the string? And it's stops on it's own and restarts? Totally trying this!!
