Did you try the baking soda gender test, and was it right? — The Bump
2nd Trimester

Did you try the baking soda gender test, and was it right?

Hey Ladies!

Just wanted to see if anyone tried the baking soda test for gender, and if so, how accurate it was. Once you had your ultra sound, was the baking soda test right or wrong?

My ultra sound is a few weeks away, I'm just getting impatient :)

Thanks!

  • Actually me and a couple pregnant friends did try this for fun, it didn't fizz for me, which is supposed to indicate girl, we ARE having another girl- However one friend just had her girl not too long ago and she said it fizzed for her.

    I wouldn't put any stock in any of these OWT's but they are fun if you think of it like a game.

    I've only heard of this here. So if it doesn't fizz, girl. If it does fizz, boy? Those are the only options? So my non-pregnant self could pee on baking soda and it would either fizz or not fizz? So it would tell me (based on my non-pregnant urine) only whether I was pregnant with a girl ... Even though I'm not pregnant? That should tell you right there that it doesn't work.

    People can be mean and nasty on here! Yikes! I tried the baking soda test FOR FUN and it changes each time you try it. So it doesn't work but it's fun to try!
    They aren't being mean.  The "test" (if that's even what you'd want to call it) isn't credible.  If you actually did this multiple times and it kept yielding different answers, I personally don't see how that's fun.  That would be like me saying, if you pull apart an oreo and the cream is stuck to the right side, it's a boy!  Then every time I do this the cream keeps switching sides so obviously it doesn't work.  I don't get it.

    I think you need to stop pointing fingers. It's not very nice.

  • Thanks for all of the kind words and advice!
  • Same answers as the previous thread:

    It works about the same as pulling petals off a flower and saying, "he loves me, he loves me not."
