Red cabbage Gender test!

Oh my ladies, I did the red cabbage PH gender test (basically the same thing as intelligender but costs a $1) And it said that I am having ANOTHER BOY. It was right with all three DS's.It turned bright pink right away which indicates boy. Have you guys tried this yet? It's so much fin to do and so cheap!

1) Buy red cabbage

2) Cut cabbage up not small pieces but cut up into about 2 cups

3) Boil water

4) Pour boiled water onto cabbage. Let set about 10mins

5) Remove cabbage from water.

6) Pour cabbage water into white or clear glass.

7) Add urine to cabbage water.

If it turns purple its a Girl
If it turns pink/red its a Boy

Some say purple may not change colors.

Others say it helps to have 2 cups. One with just cabbage water so you can compare the color to the one with cabbage water and urine.

We don't eat cabbage, so I don't know that I could justify to DH why we should buy it just so I can pee on it lol. I'd be interested to try, I did try the baking soda test and like every online predictor I could find.

How funny! I'm thinking pink for you girl! Never tried it, but the chinese gender predictor was correct with my kids and my sister's kids and SIL kids. This time it is saying pink for me. Let's see how correct it will be this time around!

This Chinese gender predictor was right with my DS. Says I'm having a girl this time. We shall see. I might have to mix my pee with cabage water and just see what happens. LOL! If I do I'll post the results.

Ok so I went to two different sites with Chinese gender predictor. One said boy one said girl. One is bound to be right. LOL!

I want to try the cabbage- im worried if its too early for gender tests just because IDK I guess because theres no sex organs formed yet i feel like it wouldnt know?!?! idk.. haha.. thats not to say I didnt pee on baking soda last week!!
I think I'll try this at like 12-14 weeks and baking soda again and see what happens.

So far the chinese gender test that me and all of my friends/family has used has been correct- BUT, I'm torn because I BD the 31st and the 1st- of course the 31st is boy and the 1st is girl... so now I'll never know if its right- haha, I think I ovulated the 2nd or 3rd so if that part matters then chinese gender says girl...dont want to get my hopes up though haha....

I did it with my last baby Ariana. When we did it on that board we all did it around 10 wks the info we had said that was the best time. Anyway mine wasnt as clear cut as some but the consensus was it was more purple than anything else and if so then it was right!

So I told DH about this yesterday, he just rolled his eyes and doesn't think that peeing in cabbage water can tell you anything. But then today he came home from work with a red cabbage for me and told me to have fun peeing lol. I'll probably try it tomorrow morning.

I did it this morning.
The first pic is one part cabbage water, and the second one is with the urine added.

Seems pretty clear to me that my test results are girl. I also redid the baking soda test and it said girl again too.

So now out of 5 different gender prediction methods all 5 say girl. If this is a boy I'm gonna be pissed at some old wives and their crappy tales lol. Biggrin

Actually, purple is girl and pink is boy.

I just did the Chinese prediction, and it says "boy." But I looked up the conception dates of all three boys, and they all fall square in the middle of "girl." So, who knows.

EDIT: I just went back. I miscalculated my age. It actually says "girl." I assume you are supposed to do your age on the date you conceived, correct?

I did the baking soda thing this morning. There was nothing. So far everything is leaning toward a girl. The placenta thing, the baking soda test, my gut feeling Smile We shall see.

Oh and Deb- yep its the age you conceive!!

I'm really sad about the chinese gender because IDK if I conceived the 31st or the 1st- both days I BD- and each day is a different gender- go figure!!!

Ok so I think when you try the baking soda you should say HOW you did it.
If you peed ON the soda or ADDED the soda- and then what it did.. hehe

I did both. The first time I tried it I poured some pee into a cup of baking soda, and the second time I sprinkled some baking soda into a cup of pee. Both had no reaction at all.
