Baking Powder Gender Test! Just for fun!

Someone mentioned this test on another forum I'm on, so I googled it and came across these results from other women. I know it's just an old wives tale and it depends on the acidity of you urine at that time, but 86% say the test predicted correctly!
I'm ashamed to say I tried it earlier today and got alot of fizzling, but I'll be finding out the sex (hopefully) in about a week.
Would anyone else who already knows the gender (or even not) be willing to take the test?

Oooo I love a wife's tale! May try this later for fun! I'm 34 wks and getting bored not knowing what I'm having... I have a scan at 36 wks and it's very tempting to find out but then it could only be a matter of weeks/days until I really find out...
Be interested to read people's results

Hmm, I'm now 34 wks, paid for private scan at 26 wks and was told girl.. I just done this test and it's saying boy?! Wasent so much a 'fizz' more just foam gathered on the top. It better be wrong.. Pink room and tons of girly clothes etc.
I did always think I was having a boy right from day I found out I was pregnant!!

Lol. This reminds me of playing with 'my first chemistry kit' except I used vinegar and not pee back then!!
Foamed up so much I thought it would overflow plastic cup. That means boy...? DH and I didn't find out at scans but feel really strongly baby is a boy.
I love old wives tales but hadn't heard this one before so thank you for posting it!!!

I've just tried it, and had no fizz, so should be a girl then?
The lady who scanned me at 37 weeks, last week told us she will refere to the baby as HE.
But when she saw it was still breech, she held the scanner over my rib area and said ' HER head is up here still'.
Our gut feeling is a girl - so will let you know in about 2 weeks (ish) time

MrsHuxtable Really simple - just put a tablespoon of baking powder in a disposable plastic cup, and then go to the bathroom and wee into it! If it bubbles up making a fizzing sound, then you are supposed to have a boy, if it doesn't fizz up and remains watery, then you're having a girl!
Glad others have found it fun too!
