I have just dne this myself and is went across so sugessted girl! we shall see though.
It would be interesting to see if it works, so ladies who already know what sex your little bundle is I ask to try ( ladies who dont also then you can see if it was right when finding out)
You need a regular number 2 lead pencil, a sewing needle, and some thread. Sharpen the pencil so that it's easy to see how the tip moves, and in which direction. The thread the needle, and stick the needle straight down into the eraser (when you hold the string the pencil tip should be pointing straight down). Lay your hand down on a hard surface, with your palm facing upward. Holding the string only, place the tip of the pencil on your wrist and hold your hand very still. Lift up slowly and hold the pencilabove your wrist, but don't move either hand, stay as still as possible. Watch the pencil closely and it will start to move. If it moves up and down (the length of your arm) it is saying BOY, if it moves side to side (across your wrist) it is saying GIRL.It will STOP on it'sown, so pay close attention to how many times it changes direction!!
should be fun to know the results!! go get your pencils
You can get the same effect by putting a key/paperclip onto a chain/piece of string. It's a technique called dowsing.
I tend to ask it 'show me Yes', then 'show me No' - it should move in 2 completely different directions. Then ask 'Is this baby a ?' over your hand in the same way. Mine says BOY! I'm staying on Team Yellow so we will see in October!
I did this before with my grandma and aunts and uncles. Its fun to do I'm not expecting or planning to be anytime soon but it still predicts it, so it will be fun to see if it pans out in the future.
Also, to the comment about it not being right for you. When we were doing it to my grandma it showed her miscarriage, I don't know if that would be a reason but I just want to mention that. It can do more than one baby with it stopping and possibly spinning in a circle before going on to the next one.
