Mix Urine & Baking Soda.  Where this scientific test comes from I have no idea.  Word has it that if the mixture fizzes you will have a boy and no fizz you will have a girl

Red Cabbage Test

Cut up a fresh red cabbage and get your water boiling.  Once it’s boiling add the red cabbage and boil for 10 minutes.  The water should turn blue.  Then remove it from the stove.  Remove the cabbage from the water.  Mix equal parts urine and the cabbage water.  If the mixture turns purple you’re having a girl.  If it goes pink/red you’re having a boy.

Ring Test
What You Need

  • Your Wedding Ring
  • Your Pregnant Belly

Place your wedding ring on a string and hold it over your belly.  Try to be still while holding it.  If it swings back and forth it’s a boy and if it goes in circles it’s a girl

History of Your Parent’s Kids

They say you can determine what you’re having from the order your parents did.  If you’re the first born you will have what your mother had as her second child.  If you’re a middle child you will have what your mother had as her third child.  If you’re the last you will have your children in the same order as your mother.
