Gah, I don't remember.. I remember it has something to do w/mixing your urine w/red cabbage but beyond that I'm clueless.. Here's a bump tho! Congrats on being 8wks along! Almost out of the first trimester!

 lol this is a FUN test. i treid it several different ways and each came out the same..girl. and it was right. i have a baby girl sitting beside me right now!

cut the red cabbage up

boil for 10-15 min

drain off watter and save

use you first morning pee and mix in the cabbage water

if it turns red/pink its a boy

if it turns purple its a girl
