Ring Test?

Have you ever tried the ring test? You take your ring (or a ring of yours) and you tie it to a 12 in piece of string. You have SO hold it above your belly and if it swings in a circle it is a boy and if it goes back and forth it is a girl. I did this with my first two pregnancies, and it was right (I am not saying that this is a 100% effective method, just something fun to try!) Try it is you already know the sex, and see if it works!

  • I did something similar to this with both mine and it was correct. The way we did it was you took a strand of your hair and tie it to your ring and dangle it over your wrist. If it went in a circle it was a boy and back and forth was a girl. Mine went in a circle both times.

  • With my first one we did this, and the if you carry out front you're having one sex, and sideways you're having another (can't remember how it went now) and a tea leaf reading, the heartbeat was fast, ......and the ultrasound.....all of the tests, including the ultra-sound said I was having a girl, I had a boy!!!!

    The funny thing.....I KNEW I was having a boy, and had painted the nursery blue and decorated in Pinnochio. Everyone thought I was crazy, but I really just knew.

  • I did this and according to the ultra sound tech it was correct because I am pregnant with a boy
