Okay, how many of you tried the old wives tale with the needle on a string, you rub in on your forearm or belly then hang let it hang over that area, remain still and wait for it to move in a circle (which means girl) or swing back and forth (which means boy)? How many of you tried this and eitther had an US to confirm the s_x or delivered what the 'needle' said you would? Everyone I know that has done this, it works for. Even my SIL who knows shes having a boy...its weird. This is just for fun, how many of you tried it??

Me! I've been doing the needle test over and over and keep getting the same results, no matter what day I do it on. I just had my US and was told I am having a girl...which the needle told me! We'll find out for sure in October when she arrives.... I did the test on my mom and it said she had a girl (i'm her only child) and did the test on my husband and the needle stood still - which they said would happen. Craziness!! : )

My mother in law did it on myself (3x) and both my sil and each time it was correct. The only thing different was that she rubbed the needle in the middle of my palm.

Isn't it crazy! My husband thinks I'm nuts but every single time it comes out the same. KLT, thats so funny cause I do it all the time too and tried it on my hubby and it stood still too! Its so weird but for some reason I have faith in it. My circles too for a girl, so we'll see!

My friend did it to me and it says neither boy or girl so i am guessing that means no baby and that terifies me so much, that is my worst im hopeing it isnt true

Maybe your friend didn't do it right?? Then again..its JUST an old wives tale and for fun!! Don't let it worry you!!!! : )

I'm going to try it tonight!! I won't know if it is right or not until July 3 when I have my u/s. Guess I'll just have to wait and see! :)

confusedlady- KLT is right, your friend may have done it wrong. Why don't you try doing it yourself? I head it works either way, it does for me- when I do it or someone else does- same result every time! Its fun if nothing else, its definitley NOT science so don't worry! Jennifer, do it tonight and let us know- do you have a feeling either way?

Athom - June 19

Me and a friend of mine did it and it was wrong for both of us. its a 50/50 chance of being right or wrong

I tried! I did it several different times and guess what? One time it would tell me boy, the next girl, boy, girl, girl, boy, girl, boy, yeah you get the drift! And one time it even said boy and girl at the same time! I thought I was having twins! Nope, but I am having a girl in a few weeks!

Hi girls! Sorry, I completely forgot to do it that night. Then, dh and I talked about trying it a couple of times but got sidetracked. My brain just isn't what it used to be. :) I will do my best to remember to try it tonight and let you girls know what it predicted ASAP. Only 2 wks until my u/s! Yippee!! I have had 2 dreams I am having a boy. But, I truly do not care either way. AMY- I am 16w 1d today. How far along are you? How exciting we're having our u/s on the same day! Did you try the needle test? What did it predict if you did? Anyone else have an u/s coming up soon or already had one besides KLT? (Congrats on you bby girl, KLT!!)

My sister did the needle trick and it said boy, a few months later a whopping 10 lbs boy arrived! :) It says boy for me too so we'll see...


KLT - June 19

Thanks Jennifer28! : ) I just had to do the test again..since its been awhile... still a girl! :-P


Jennifer28 - June 20

Well... I tried it this morning and it was swinging back and forth. I tried it a couple of times with the same results. I'm going to try it again tonight just to make sure. All signs, old wives tales, dreams and even the chinese calendar says boy. If I have a girl I will be really surprised! I'll prove all of the theories wrong at one time! :)
