Would chemistry not dictate that it would fizz regardless?

I reckon it will be right about 50% of the time.

Think it just down to how acidic or alkaline the urine is. I've not tried it however I did do the red cabbage one just for fun that said girl but I'm having a boy. Xx

I did this for fun too grin and mine fizzed a lot. It fizzed a lot when I was pregnant with DS aswell.

I read an article somewhere once where loads of women had taken the test and posted their results and scan/birth outcome. Apparently the test was right for 80% of them. It must have been a fluke. I can't see how a girl or boy would change the acidity of your urine. If anything, it's food/drink that would change it.

I'm 20 weeks now and had my scan its a BOY smile so happy looks like this test was right for me smile xx
