Cabbage Test (has anyone tried it before)

Has any of you ladies tried the cabbage test and at what week in your pregnancy were you and was it correct?

Has anyone tried it with this pregnancy?

You have to use red cabbage and boil it in some water, let it sit and cool. Then strain the cabbage out and keep the cabbage water. Mix same amount of urine (first morning) and cabbage water. If the solution is a red or pink color then you are preggo with a boy. If the solution is a dark purple then you are preggo with a girl.

I've heard you are supposed to be able to tell with baking soda and your urine too. I haven't tried it yet though.
