There are several wives’ tales regarding baby gender prediction. These can be performed prior to the sonogram that positively identifies the sex. There are tons out there, but I’ve only tried one. The ring on a string test.
This will not only predict the gender of the baby in your belly, but how many children you will have and the gender of each. You suspend your wedding ring (or a needle or pencil) on a piece of thread an inch above your wrist. If the makeshift pendulum swings up and down from hand to arm, then that represents a boy. If it swings side to side across your wrist, that represents a girl. In-between each child, the pendulum will circle. Once the prediction is done, so is the pendulum’s movement.
My aunt and uncle told me about this test over dinner, and we immediately went home and tried the test. They were predicting that I was carrying a girl. At the time that we did my test, we weren’t sure which direction was which gender. In order to determine the boy/girl direction, we tested my aunt Teresa right after we tested me. Her pendulum swang up and down, circle, up and down, circle, up and down, circle, up and down. (She has four boys!)
This totally weirded me out!! She has already had all of her children, so for her the test was completely accurate. It also made Ryan exclaim, “That is some voodoo or something!” My test showed up and down, circle, across, and then the pendulum became perfectly still. Which represents a boy and then a girl. We even did the test again later that night, and it showed the same result. I guess we will see!!
