So, yesterday dh and I went to see a psychic, for no real reason other than we felt like it. The psychic we saw had been recommended by a few people to us and was very accurate in what she said (DH and I had seperate readings).

She correctly identified we had a young daughter, things about our work, our home, friends, relationship etc and was quite detailed..

however she told me that I would have another child "very close in age" to my dd (who is 6 months). I gave the the look of an absolutely horrified person (wink) and she said "I dont know what to advise if you dont want the baby because I am not often wrong with those things". She then read about my career and said "pregnancy" !!!! (I am due to return to work in 2 weeks!)

now DH told me that when he had his reading th psychic said "you're wife is pregnant with a baby boy"

now, I do not want another baby at this stage in my life, I would have liked a 3-4 year age gap at the smallest, but obviously now I am panicking.

Are psychics wrong about these things? I really dont want to do a pg test because then I feel like I am giving in to my worries and the sensible side of me tells me its a load of rubbish...........

would explain why I cant shift my baby weight though wink

I think a pregnancy test would be more scientific

Have you had unprotected sex?

Personally, I wouldn't believe a psychic if she said it was raining, without looking out the window to check...

Did you pee on her and she turned blue?


Then she is not an acurate pregnancy predictor.

Do a test if you think you'll worry.

Do a test fgs.

psychiccynic Sun 17-Feb-08 20:49:08

all shops are shut or don't sell pg tests, or i would do one right now....might buy one tomorrow though - if i still feel this irrational in the morning grin

sandyballs, i went on minipill soon after having dd which caused lots of breakthrough bleeding and we did have sex when i was on that (but that was in November grin)

and then went on my original tried and trusted pill and, ahem, not had much recently.

dd is only 6 months old though grin

dh would be very peed off if i were pregnant without much "practice" though grin

ROFL wanderingtrolley grin

expat, you said "no" is that in response to my title do i believe a psychic or is that in response to my question are psychics wrong?

sorry to be so confusing smile

Psychics work by being good readers of people. Have you seen Derren Brown doing the same thing? The things he told some people were amazingly accurate.
There is NO WAY she can know if you're pregnant - she may just have got some reaction from you when she talked around the subject. I wouldn't worry about it tonight. I'd put money on it that you're not, from what you've said.

Even if you are pregnant it will be a coincidence.

bookwormmum Sun 17-Feb-08 20:56:37

Thinking about it, she has about a 25% chance of being accurate.

Supposing you are??? will you stop being a cynic then?? grin.

psychiccynic Sun 17-Feb-08 21:01:19

i would definitely stop being a cynic if i were, but i might become an alcoholic instead grin - after baby boy born of course grin

she indicated that boy would be very silly and childish and i'd be left thinking will he ever grow up? (arent all boys like that? grin)

Surfermum Sun 17-Feb-08 21:05:38

ROFL wanderingtrolley grin.

Given that a lot of the other information was correct, it's possible she's right.

The only way you will know for sure is to do a test.

mosschops30 Sun 17-Feb-08 21:09:55

I got told I was by one she even said 'i think you need to go home now and do the test, youre already pregnant'

load of bollocks!!!!!!

CantSleepWontSleep Sun 17-Feb-08 21:10:30

Well I'd be pretty cynical too.

When is your next period due?

psychiccynic Sun 17-Feb-08 21:12:26

I'm on the pill and its due this week but i'm off on holiday on thurs for a few days so not having one this month [badgirl emoticon] - guess i better do a pg test hadnt i? or i'll just be worrying for weeks

psychiccynic Sun 17-Feb-08 21:13:00

mosschops - that is a relief! you're not in the westcountry are you?!

mosschops30 Sun 17-Feb-08 21:14:20

no I'm not smile

I dont believe a word of it, all about money!

jasper Sun 17-Feb-08 21:27:43

I have been told on two occasions by two psychics I was pregnant.
I wasn't.

Blandmum Sun 17-Feb-08 21:31:47

Only belive the psychic if he is your dp/h and has crystal balls so you can see him coming!

psychiccynic Sun 17-Feb-08 21:37:48

OK you lot - explain this then!
When I was pg I went into a charity shop & was looking through the rails. I was the only customer in the shop, and the woman wandered over & asked if I was looking for anything in particular. I said 'Maternity clothes' so she stood & looked with me. Then she said 'Twins, is it?' & I asked how she could tell - I wasn't enormous yet. She said that sometimes things just 'came' to her, it was as if she's like a radio receiver, getting info about people like tuning into a radio station. She didn't ask for it, and sometimes it was a real pain, but it just happened.

The she said 'Do you know what sex they are?' & I said 'No'.
'Do you want to know?' & again I said 'No'. She said 'Well, you won't be disapponted' & dropped the subject.

So, many, many months later I found myself, alone, in that part of town. I went in & said 'Do you remember...' etc but she didn't remember me. Then she looked at me & said 'Oh yes, a boy and a girl, wasn't it?' and carried on with what she was doing. She was right!

So, no coercion, no motive, no showing-off. I believe that my body 'knew' and that she read this in some way.

Something else; a graphologist once told me that she could tell if someone was pg from their handwriting - there is a little wobble that is to do with the mother being aware of the baby's heartbeat.
