Okay. We’re getting to crunch time. At least I hope we are!
So it’s time to get those gender predictions in!
Will Baby #4 be a girl or a boy?
I thought it would be fun to put some old wives tales to the test to see if they leaned one way or the other. Here’s what I found.
Pour your urine into a clear cup containing two tablespoons baking soda. If it fizzes like soda, it’s a boy. If it’s flat, it’s a girl.
Result: I had fizzy baking soda pee – BOY
Chop up a head of red cabbage and put in a bowl. Pour boiling water over it and let sit for ten minutes. After ten minutes, strain out cabbage and pour water into a clear cup. Pee in a separate container. Mix equal parts cabbage water and pee. If it turns red or pink, it’s a boy. If it’s violet, it’s a girl.
Result: Violet – GIRL
Ring on a String:
Tie a string around your wedding ring and hold it over your belly. If it moves from side to side, it’s a boy. If it moves in a circle, it’s a girl.
Result: Circle – GIRL
Odd/Even Mayan System:
Legend has it that Mayans determined a baby’s gender by looking at the mother’s age at conception and the year of conception. If both are even or odd, it’s a girl. If one’s even and one’s odd, it’s a boy.
Result: 31 and 2015 – GIRL
Chinese Gender Chart:
This chart, which was found in an ancient royal tomb in Beijing, is said to be over 90% accurate in predicting a baby’s gender. You find your age at conception and the month of conception. The calendar converts it, and voila!, you have your answer.
They say that girls steal their mother’s beauty, so a woman carrying a girl tends to have acne.
There was one more test that I found. It involved mixing urine and Drano which the site said isn’t safe for pregnant women because of the fumes it gives off. And since Jarrod is in D.C. for work, I didn’t want to make my mom do experiments with my pee. So that one just didn’t get done! Too bad because we obviously could have used a tie-breaker!
So what do you think? Will Baby #4 be a boy or a girl?
