  • My mom and grandma use the string on needle. You rub the needle on your arm and then hold it by the string over your wrist. I can't remember which way means what, but circles, or back and forth mean boy or girl. Like for my mom she always gets two boys. (I am her step daughter) It will move either in a circle or back and forth, slow down and do it again, then stop. Weird but it always happens that way. I had always shown 3 kids, and am currently pregnant with my 3rd, and hopefully last. :)
