1. Intelligender test. Bought at Rite Aid for $29.99, this handy at-home gender test is yet another in a series of 'pee on this' or 'pee in this' tests that I'll have to contend with throughout being pregnant. So, I followed the instructions and conducted the test first thing in the morning, went step by step, and here's what I saw:
|That color looks like a match to me!|
|No match here!|
2. Needle test. A couple of my coworkers insisted on having someone in to perform this gender prediction test on Friday. Basically it's a needle stuck into the end of a pencil, attached to a string and wrapped around a finger. You then take the contraption and hold it above your wrist. If it swings one way, it's a girl. The other, it's a boy. It went in the direction of a girl. Who knows.
Update - I just Googled this thing, and it said if it goes in a circle, it's a girl, and if it goes side to side, it's a boy. This one went side to side. So, again, who knows.
3. Chinese Calendar gender prediction. I have decided that this is absolute hogwash. Depending on which calendar you look at, you can get the answer you want. I realized this after I looked at one, went to another link, found another calendar and got a completely different result with the same input. Whatever.
Boy or girl? Who knows. I'll believe it when I see it.
