  • I did it with both of my kids--just to see. It was wrong both times. Also if you try it a few different times you usually get different results too. It is just a fun silly old wives tale.

  • Well I didn't do it with my wedding ring, but I used a piece of string and a sewing needle and put it over my wrist. I did this with my first pregnancy and it said I was having a girl (* I was only in my first trimester*) low and behold I have a beautiful girl, then it said I would have a M/C, I did have a M/C with my 2nd pregnancy just last April, Now I am pregnant again and it said I will be having a girl... So we will see in a couple of months once I get the sex determined!!!! Oh yes, and my last child that I am supposed to have is a "boy"... YES I do beleave that these techniques work! I also use the chinese predictions online!!!

  • I dont know if its true or not, but its been right every time I have heard of it. It worked for me, and everyone else in my family. It even said that my mom would have a girl, then boy. She said, I wont have any more kids.... 8 years later, theres the boy... It said I would have a girl, then a boy. We will see, I only have a girl so far. Good luck :)
