  • Tried it multiple times. Told me "girl" every time. I am now the proud mommy of a boisterous little BOY.

  • Mine was right. But, one thing people don't know is that the ring will turn in different directions for different people. So, before you try...hang the ring over the palm of your hand & say YES, the ring should start spinning in one direction. That direction is YOUR "yes". Stop it, tell it NO & then it should spin in the opposite direction. When you figure out which direction your yes & no's are, then try it over your belly. But, you have to ask it "Is it a girl?" or something like that & watch which direction it spins in. I have played with pendulum's quite a bit. They are very neat. Not sure how they're spinning on their own, but they do. Maybe some folks are better at it than others. I could get that thing to spin real fast without encouraging movement at all. It was kind of spooky.

  • I know i probably sound like a loon...lol, but i had such accurate readings & aside from just pregnancies, that it creeped me out & i stopped using the pendulum.

    here is some info on pendulum's. Apparently they swing because of gravitational pull...they can swing back & forth, or round n round.

  • I tried the needle on a string, and wedding ring on a string and both were right for me. You have to know how to do it for yourself though like another poster stated. I personally think you have to really believe in too, not just be skeptical.

  • I tried everything. With my first, it all said girl, except I was carrying low -- he was a boy. With my second, it all said boy, except the heart rate was high -- she was a girl.
