Needle trick

Has anyone had the needle test/trick change over the years? When preg with my daughter (now 6) the needle said i would have one girl and one boy. I do have a son(3) also. I tried the test with my son and it said after him there would be no more kids. Just for fun the other day I tried it again and now another "child/girl" has showed up. WTW? I would love another child although financially dh and I cant afford another. Husbands test shows 3 kids also even though he is "through with any more kids." It is strange that it shows up around the time I have the implanon rod taken out of my arm and replaced with another form of bc. Has anyone had this happen before?

  • it is an old wives tale that if you use a needle and thread over your wrist/palm/fist it is supposed to tell you how many kids you are going to have and in what order.

  • i am suprised at how many ppl have never heard of this. you can research it online and find out a lot of ppl swear by it. it has worked for everyone i know. it shows that dd and ds will each have one daughter each. only time will tell. dh shows the same number/sex kids mine shows. yay.
