Ok while on YouTube I saw some videos for finding out a baby's gender at home. I click on it and its people boiling cabbage using the cabbage water & putting pee in it if the water stays purple girl if it changed to pink boy? Has anyone tried this? Just for fun I got some purple cabbage today while shopping it was only .89 per lb figured why not! I'm gonna do it tomorrow it recommends fmu. We will see but I would love to have real feedback from mammas on here! And this is my 5th baby first time I have heard about this!

I did it with my second!!

My sister and I were pregnant at the same time. The water was purple & we both ended up with girls!

I have doubts about it though, because my hubby did it & his turned purple also! Lol!

I think it's all about acidity. I watched a few videos and one just tested cabbage water against 4 other substances the acidic ones turned pink. Idk kinda fun though.

So I did it & it stayed the same color as before didn't change. If its right it means GIRL!!! Lol my boys have been referring to my growing belly as their baby sister!!!!!! They are 2 & 4 and p.s. I never told them I was pregnant! They could sense it! Even before I took a test!!!!
