Who's done it? What were your results?? (For those that know gender was it right?)

I'm not sure of the gestation limits but I'm 10w6d and just did it and it fizzed like CRAZY!! Ironically the tech yesterday kept calling the baby "he" hope it's right!!

I've heard that it's best to do it after 10 weeks, so next week I plan on trying it! also hoping for a boy!!

I did the test at 6 weeks and it fizzed a little bit, I am going to do it again today! I have done a lot of gender predictions and tests and they all say boy!

I've done it twice so far - read mixed ideas of when to do it, some say before 10 weeks, some say after.

all of the ones I have done so far haven't fizzed at all, so I'll do it again next week and see what we get

I did it a few weeks ago and it fizzed like crazy, so boy. I'll try again tonight and see what it says.

I never did it with my other two kids.

I just did it tonight and it fizzed like crazy...so we'll see! I'd like this one to be a boy, and the next one a girl. That'd be my perfect order.

I've done it three times, and got no fizz each time, so girl for me! I've read both things, too, some say you need to do it before 10wks and others say after, so who knows? I'll be 10wks tomorrow, so I guess I can do it again then, too.

you mix equal amounts of urine and baking soda, if it fizzes it is suposed to mean a boy, if not a girl.

I did it today and was kinda bummed that nothing happened. So I guess mine is predicting a girl.

The Chinese calendar is predicting a boy. So I guess we will see what one is correct.

Mine said girl, but I'm not positive I used equal parts soda and pee. When you think about it, this test is really gross, lol. My husband was like "WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!" "pouring pee over this cup of baking soda... it's totally normal, I promise. *pause* It's a girl!"

Tried the baking soda test!!

8w 3 d - ZERO fizz with SMU! That means PINK right?

Oh, could it be??? I love my 3 boys and would love another of course, but I just think there's a girl who needs to be part of my family.

ETA: Chinese Gender chart says boy. Pshaw!

I did it about 2 weeks ago and it didn't do anything. I'm going to wait a few weeks and try again. Going by Heart Rate it was nice and high 171 and from the baking soda test not fizzing all signs are pointing to girl so I'm really hoping its right.

I did it and no fizz (a few bubbles when I dropped the baking soda in) but not a fizz so I guess girl?

science says it depends on how much ammonia is in your pee. If you are dehydrated it will fizz. if you drink lots of water and clear urine it wont fizz.

but i did it and it said boy we will see!

I did it again today, and while it didn't fizz it got like a head on it, looked kinda like a beer.

So I guess this means boy...

I think any bubbles are supposed to indicate boy? Not an expert here.
