    Has anyone else tried the string test to see what you are having?

    I did the other night....according to the string tests I did ....it's a girl. We will find out for sure on Dec. 8th.....hopefully.

    The stirng tests are:

    needle, string, and pencil
    place needle into the eraser on pencil and thread string through
    hold pencil (by string) over your wrist....
    if pencil swings back and forth it's a girl, if a circle it's a boy

    wedding ring
    thread

    string thread through wedding band

    same thing.....back and forth....girl, circle.....boy

    GL!

    :hug:

    I haven't tried that but I have tried the chinese birth predictor calendar and it was right for my first two boys.
    This time its saying girl.
    I did my SIL's kids too and all were correct.

    I haven't done the string test, but I liked the idea of the Chinese birth predictor calendar - so tried that out - said I will have a girl - that will be nice and I'll bear it in mind (but I won't go out and buy lots of pink outfits!!!)

    I've just been for my acupuncture session and she was trying to tell from my pulse what sex the baby was - said she couldn't tell at 8 weeks, so will try again at 12. That will be 1 to bear in mind too.

    I did the Chinese Prediction Chart and it said Girl.....I checked my age back when I was preggie with DS and it said Boy. I'm hoping for a girl this time but just want it to be happy and healthy.

    Scrub that on the Chinese birth predictor calendar - you have to take your Chinese lunar age, which is different and so now it says a boy!! I guess there is a 50/50 chance of getting it right!!

    How do you find out your chinese lunar age?
    I had a dream last that I was carrying around a baby girl, and it was the first dream I've remembered in years! Guess I'll find out for sure in 29 weeks.
