Baking Soda Gender Test...works!


If you haven't heard of this I just wanted to let you all know that it actually works. You put a little bit of baking soda (1 spoonful) in a cup and pee in it. If it fizzes it's supposed to be a boy, if no fizzing then it's a girl. We tried it out last night for fun because my ultrasound was scheduled for this morning.

We are having a girl!

I have a son from a previous marriage and my husband and I really wanted a girl. I had a feeling that this was a girl from about 6 weeks on. (I also knew my son was a boy before the ultrasound) Mothers intuition is about 80% right.

Some of you may remember that I posted a while back about my subchorionic hematoma (blood trapped between the placenta and the uterus). I was bleeding at 14 weeks and it was due to that clot. I have continued bleeding BUT the clot is gone. SO after my ultrasound, seeing that our baby girl is PERFECT in every way they discovered why I am still bleeding.

Please pray girls... apparently my cervix is thinning and softening already. I am on bedrest and they are going to give me steroid shots at 24 weeks. My goal is to make it to 34 weeks. Please pray that our sweet baby girl will stay inside growing! Unfortunately I don't have any good pictures to share...I think they were more concerned with what they were seeing about my cervix.

Audrey Mayne is her name in case you were curious. We are in love!

I did this about a month ago. It told me girl when I was convinced I was having a boy (DH and I both had boy vibes, Intelligender said boy, placenta test said boy, etc) so I discredited it. When I was at my last ultrasound, the doctor said it was inconclusive but he would guess girl. We're getting the gender confirmed on Thursday to see. So maybe it was accurate for me!

I did it twice to make sure as well, both said girl for me.

hmm I dont know what to think about this! Mine had about 7 little bubbles, not even a second of fizzing. I would think a "fizz" should be a little more obvious but I dont know what to think. Congrats on your girl Happy! Can they give you progesterone cream vaginal suppositories?
