Hi ladies, I thought it would be fun to do an official thread for those who have tested, their prediction, and then if it was confirmed correct or incorrect! I loved this idea, and thought I'd start it. Directions for Gender Test 1) Buy red cabbage 2) Cut cabbage up not small pieces but cut up into about 2 cups 3) Boil water 4) Pour boiled water onto cabbage. Let set about 10mins 5) Remove cabbage from water. 6) Pour cabbage water into white or clear glass. 7) Add urine to cabbage water. If it turns purple/blue its a Girl **may be a fluorescent purple which is close to pink, so really look at it and decide** If it turns pink/red its a Boy Some say purple may not change colors. Others say it helps to have 2 cups. One with just cabbage water so you can compare the color to the one with cabbage water and urine.
