Anyone know of any fun ways of trying to guess the babies gender?

I'm 17 weeks pregnant. I don't want to know the gender but it would be really fun to guess. Anyone know any cool games to tryand guess? How accurate are your games? Someone told me about putting a spoon under a couch or something like that. I also heard of like if you hold a baby and they cry then your carrying the opposite gender. Idk. Just any fun ways to try to guess. Even though I won't know until I give birth.

  • i agree the cabbage gender test was pretty fun (wasn't right for me). I did the Chinese calendar chart and it has been correct with both of mine and right for every one i know that has done it.

    My mother and step father did this thing where you get two chairs tape a pair of scissors under one and a knife under the other then walk around the chairs a few time and sit on one if you sit on the one with the scissors its a girl, knife its a boy. It was right for my mom, but it isn't reliable just something fun.

  • There is a ring one you can do, you tie your weddig band onto a string and then have someone hold the string with the ring dangleing over your belly. you have to lay down. if it goes in a circle it is a girl and if it rocks it is a boy

  • I have heard something about a ring on the end of a string. You lay down and someone else holds the ring over your stomach. Supposedly if the ring goes in a circle it is a girl and if it moves up and down than it is a boy. Both times I have seen it done it was supposed to be a girl and that is what the baby was.

  • someone puts a pair of scissors and a knife under two pillows. Then you sit on one of them. If you sit on the pillow with the scissors you're having a girls, knife means boy!! (not accurate at all!!)

    In Greece they take a gold neckless and hold it above the woman's right hand. If the neckless moves in circles, you're having a girl. If it moves in lines you're having a boy. They say this is accurate but I really don't think so lol

    Congrats on the baby!!

  • ive heard of boiling cabbage and taking the water and mixing it with your urine and if it changes colors the color it turn tells weather its a boy or girl. i think if it stays red or pink its a girl and if it turns blue its a boy.

  • my hubby's cousin's wife told me about one where you put your rings on a necklace and hold it over your stomach.. if it goes, in a circle, its a girl and if it goes back & forth, its a boy. i did this when i was pregnant with my son and it was right.
