A friend of mine just told me about this and I was completely shocked!! Thanks Laura if you are reading.
There are a million and one different tests, gimmicks, and old wives’ tales abounding that supposedly help to either conceive a certain gender or to determine the gender of your unborn child, and this may be just another. I’ve never tried the test myself so can not endorse this either way.
The baking soda gender reveal trick…
The test itself is easy enough. Put a tablespoon or two of baking soda in a glass. Then add some of your urine to the baking soda. If the combination fizzes, like a soft drink that has been shaken up, then you are having a boy. On the other hand if there is no reaction at all from the baking soda and urine, you’re having a girl.
The science behind this idea suggests that the gender of the baby changes the levels of some of the hormones in the mother’s body, which may then change some of the acid content of her urine. If you’ve ever seen vinegar and baking soda together then you know why acidity is an important concept where this test is concerned.
Either way, it doesn’t hurt to try the test, and you never know when it might be right.
Tried the test? we would love to hear your story in the comments section below? If you love this please hit share on Facebook too.
