    Hmmm, that one doesn't help me much. One of the foods I've craved regularly is spicy chicken burritos, but I can't drink much besides pop and chocolate milk, so I am craving sweet and spicy!

    I am pretty sure that with my dd, the Chinese gender chart told me boy, but it was a girl. I know on my previous birth board, a bunch of us did a test where you boil a red cabbage and mix the water with some of your pee-if it turned red or pink it was supposed to be a boy and if it turned purple, it meant girl. I don't think it ended up being very accurate though!

    I did the cabbage one! I did it a few weeks ago but the online instructions say you have to be past 10 weeks and I think I was 9 1/2 maybe. I'm sure the later you are the better the results. My results were kind-of a bluish color, but more purple than pink or red. I do think it's fun. I have a couple friends who have tried it and had pretty good results. One did the expensive CVS gender test and the cabbage test, and the cabbage test was the only one right (she's past 20 weeks now so she knows for sure). I may try again soon, I am totally addicted to gender guessing.

    I may have to try the cabbage test! The one thing holding me back is trying to explain it to DH. It's not like we ever eat boiled cabbage, so I can only imagine trying to explain that I have to boil some cabbage so I can pee on it to see if we're having a boy or a girl. LMAO!

    What's the one with the wedding ring?

    Oh yeah, it took me a little while to warm up to the idea of telling DH all about it. He was okay with it once I convinced him that I don't actually pee in the pots that we cook our food in. It's just cabbage, and I can use disposable cups for the pee and throw them right in the trash. It was a pretty funny conversation!

    Hahaha.. that would be a great convo to have with DH. ... what are you doing? ...peeing on cabbage... uh, why?... it's an old wives tale that you can predict the gender, wanna wait and see with me? ... mm....no.

    Peeing in the dinner pots is hilarious.
