If you’re pregnant and anxious to find out the gender (as I was), you may find yourself resorting to various methods to satisfy your curiosity, especially if you get a limited number of ultrasounds during your pregnancy. The Pregnancy Board has been discussing on and off for the past year a particular kind of DIY gender prediction test, namely using baking soda.
How is this test done?
The procedure and the test itself are easy. Add a tablespoon or two of baking soda in a glass. Then, add some of your urine in the baking soda. It is said that morning pee is more accurate, because it’s less concentrated.
If the combination of urine and baking soda fizzes, then you are having a boy. If there is no reaction, you are having a girl.
Does the test really work?
However, there is no science evidence behind this test.
Some women say they were told that are expecting a boy, but the baking soda showed it is a girl. Moreover, there are women who were told that are having a girl, and this test agreed with it, but at the end had a baby boy.
Anyway, you can try it firstly because it is fun and you never know when it might be right.
