  • You boil like cabbage for like 10 mins and you use the juice from the cabbage and then pour your urine in there and if its turns reddish pink its a boy and if its turns purple blue its a girl ill put a video on here from youtube .

  • It's as accurate as any other gender predictor; you have a 50-50 shot :)

    Truly, the only way to predict gender is with an ultrasound or amno - but it's fun to try out the old wives tales with friends/family anyway :)

  • Everyone told me I was having a boy with all those old wives tale. It definitely is a 50-50 chance because I had a girl both times! lmbo :))

  • Nothing except for the birth of your baby is 100% accurate but there are some fun things to try. (red cabbage test)
    There is a gender prediction kit that cost about $30 at walgreens
    There is the chine's calendar gender predictor.
    If you google search gender predictors you can find some fun quiz's too.
