For someone who says I want to stay on team green, I sure do like all of these old wive's tales
Pencil Pregnancy Test

Has anyone tried this? I vaguely remember messing around with this test on the school bus as a kid, but can't remember the results. I am sure there is no scientific basis to this AT ALL, but when I tried it just now, I got:

Boy (correct- DS is 3)
Miscarriage (correct- January 2011)
girl (??)

And then my arm got tired so I couldn't see what happened next

I just tried it, and I couldn't get the thing to stop swinging to get started...

but it seemed to go

wrist to elbow - for a while, never stopped in between - I do have 2 boys in a row
then it did make circles for a while - I did have a m/c before this baby
and then it seemed to go back to elbow to wrist, but my arm was aching by that point...

It worked for me and for about 12 teachers at my school! I'm beginning to swear by it!
