Drano gender test using sodium hydroxide crystals

I just thought I'd throw out there that a couple weeks before my ultrasound I tried doing the Drano gender test. I just used cheap pure sodium hydroxide crystals and followed the same rules as the intelligender test has. My little experiment matched girl results and that is what we are now expecting from the ultrasound. Now, I don't know if I would get the same results regardless but it was fun and correct.

I have never really heard much on how to exactly do the drano test. I have seen it mentioned. What do you do? LOL curious mind here.

And Congratulations on having a girl!! Best wishes for a successful vbac!

Re: Drano gender test using sodium hydroxide crystals

The Drano test has been right for all seven of my children (I havent' done it for this baby).

You take CRYSTAL Drano and put it in the bottom of a glass jar, just enough to cover the bottom. Take first morning urine, and pour in just enough to cover the Drano. Do this outside. It will fume and stink and get really hot. Better yet, make your DH/partner do it! If it turns black/brown, it's a boy. If it turns blue/green it's a girl.

Re: Drano gender test using sodium hydroxide crystals

Yah, as PP said, it's probably best that you let someone else perform this experiment. You do not want to be messing with Drano crystals when your preggo! I've also heard that you can use pool pH strips, but I don't know how to read the results. It's worth a Google.

I used the Intelligender and it was right for me.

Re: Drano gender test using sodium hydroxide crystals

Do you have to be a certain amount of weeks along before doing this?

Re: Drano gender test using sodium hydroxide crystals

I did this with my boys and it was right. Then I got concerned about the fumes (and I think I did it in a plastic cup and ruined it, lol). But thanks to Christine's info, I may try it again and have DH do it....altho he is squeamish around pee, lol
