  • I did Intelligender. It was wrong. From one thread on a mothering forum that I was following, women posted their results and what their baby turned out to be and it was about 50/50 for accuracy. Sorry.

  • there is also the red cabbage test, which is a lot cheaper.

  • I didn't do the intelligender for the simple fact that its $30 and not guaranteed. I did to the red cabbge test, the penny test, heartbeat test and I am sure there is more, but I can't remember......

    They are fun to do though.

  • I haven't but a friend did. Hers said girl but she had a boy. Sorry not much help!

  • You simply can't tell what the sex of your baby will be by doing an at-home urine test. If you want to do it for fun, go ahead - but I wouldn't decorate a nursery based on the results. The odds are 50-50 that it will be correct, the same as with any homemade diagnostic tool (like the red cabbage test).

  • Someone got it for me as a joke (intelligender) we didn't take it seriously...because it said girl and we have a boy!
