    Default Old wives tales HELP

    So i was just wondering does the ring test( where you put your wedding band on a piece of your hair and hang it over your belly) work this way ?
    Boy its side to side
    and girls round and round

    or is it the other way around i looked on a few sites but some say this way and other say the other way..



    Just curious did this last night and it went around and around like i have never seen before.

    I'm not sure which is which.
    I think you have to "tune it in" to male or female first. See what it does when you hold it over Cody.

    I thought it was circle=girl, straight=boy. BUT with Jett it was the opposite. I think you have to "tune" it in first. Thats what i will be doing this time.
    Goodluck.

    This didn't work for me - I already have a boy, and I got straight lines, then a stop, then circles. But just found out we're having another boy, so should have been lines again.

    Good luck though.

    i think its a load of crud , but it sure is fun testing old wives tales ..

    my mum told me when babies are bending over with their head on the ground , (their legs are straight like a triangle and head and hands are on the floor .. you know what i mean )

    and way when they do that apparently it means they want a little sister or brother .. and sure enough after nix statrted to do it , a week later i found out i was UTD !!!

    oh yeah its only for fun i know that. Really lachlan has been doing that too for a while though how interesting.

    I heard a really good one that if you are carrying a girl you are twice as mooding during pregnancy as you have a female inside you as well,
    That descibes me to a tea lol i don't think thats the reason though

    LOL the moodyness... You are describing me to a T too. ppl just have to look at me the wrong way. I feel sorry for my household.
    A funny thing i was at a shopping centre with my sister and we were outside so she could have a smoke and a gull pooped on her. Either she was gunna have good luck or someone was pregnant. Looks like i was UTD. LOL it was so funny. sorry got a bit side tracked. Have you done the ring test yet?
