Another Gender Prediction Method

Should we do it?

Baking Soda Instructions:
Put about a tbs of baking soda in a cup and add some urine to it. If it fizzes like beer its a boy if it doesn't then girl.

Cabbage Instructions:
1.Go to the store and buy a red cabbage. The size of the cabbage does not matter at all.
2.Cut the cabbage into big chunks. The smaller you cut the chunks, the better your results will turn out.
3. Boil some water on the stove and put in the chunks of cabbage.
4. Let the water and cabbage boil for about 10 minutes or so. When the ten minutes is up, remove it from the heat.
5. Grab a cup and go to the bathroom! Pee into the cup.
6. In a separate cup, mix 1 part of your urine to 1 part of the water that the cabbage was boiled in. No need to save the cabbage unless you want to eat it. It's pretty tasty, so you might want to eat it!
7. If the urine/cabbage water turns pink or red then this indicates a boy result! If the urine/cabbage water turns purple, this indicates a girl result

BakingS: I did it and mine fizzed and bubbles for a tiny tiny bit and then stopped. So I guess mine would be boy?

Oh interesting! Sounds like you might have a boy according to that. I wonder what the "science" behind it is...

It's probably based on the same theory as the "Wheat and Barley Test" from 1350BC (The History of the Pregnancy Test Kit - A Timeline of Pregnancy Testing). Has something to do with the hormones in the urine. A good control would be to see what happens when you add water to baking soda.... if it fizzles then I would say this test is more wives' tale than science.

But I'm going to do it anyway Smile

These are fun.... I did the Dandelion pregnancy test....

It didn't work.. They say if you soak a dandelion in your pee after an hr it will get red little blisters on the leaves... NOPE. Not for me at least. and I KNOW I'm pregnant.
