  • Just be patient. It's already amazing that we have ultrasounds and get to find out the sex half way through your pregnancy!!

  • Oh i kno, but im one of the ones to find out immediatly! i have known two people to take the gender test & they ended up having the opposite sex then what the test said. And when i took mine, it said a boy, so i was jus curious if people have took then & they have been accturate

  • Sounds like you could really get yourself attached to a gender and then weeks later find out it's not what you thought!

  • with my first baby, i didn't want to get one, because like you said, i would have gotten attached to the idea of one gender. as it was, i was CONVINCED i was having a boy, and she came out a perfect little girl.
    now that i'm pregnant again, i want to try a bunch of them. i heard about one where you pee on baking soda. i know they're ridiculous and inaccurate, but for this time around, i just want to have fun with it. i won't be buying anything gender-related til after the ultrasound anyway, so i just want to have fun.

  • oh heck no, never BUY a test. they're horribly inaccurate. spend money on new shoes or something lol. i thought you meant like the urban legends, like peeing on cabbage leaves or holding a ring above your stomach on a string lol
