Old wives method/ instructions:
Get a regular sewing needle and a piece of thread. Thread the needle.
Dangle the needle over your belly until it comes to a halt keeping your hand as steady as possible. The needle will either start moving in a circular motion or straight line back and forth.
Circles are girls and straight lines are boys.
However, if this is not your first child or if you have had a miscarriage or abortion, the needle will show these genders first. Generally what happens is that the needle will show both signals for boy and girl if you have had a miscarriage or abortion in the first trimester. For example, if your first born was a girl, second was a boy and then you had a miscarriage, the needle will a follow this pattern: starts moving in circles then comes to a stop, then moves in straight lines then comes to a stop, then goes in circles then straight lines or vise verca with no stopping in between. The needle will come to a complete standstill for at least 30 sec. to 1 min. before starting the sequence again. The last signal will be the gender of your current pregnancy.
HINT: This WORKS!! Tried and true!! Sonograms told me I was having a boy and the needle said different. The needle was right. You are far enough along at 5 months for your results to be accurate. This also works on ANYONE OR LIVING creature that has given birth. I've even done it with my dog after she had puppies to see if the sequence was correct. All nine were accounted for and in the exact sequence they were born. You don't have to be pregnant for this to work. You just have to had been pregnant at one time or another in your life.
Have fun with it. I've actually challenged people telling them I can predict how many children they've had and what order they were born in. In 20 years, it hasn't failed me yet.
Good Luck and Congratulations on your bundle of joy.
