ring test?

Who all has tried the ring test? And how have the results of that test compared to what you actually had? I did it three different times today and it said girl all three times. I am praying that its right and were having a girl.  Its what were really wanting and it will be my moms second granddaughter but more like her first cuz my sister and all of us don't have a great relationship.

it's funny because i actually just tried the ring test today. it said im having a boy. my friend who did it said her and her pregnancy group all did it and whatever it said, was true for everyone. i'm hoping mines not true, but i guess we'll find out sooner or later! good luck :)

You use one of your rings and a string or a piece of your hair and hold it either over your belly or the palm of your hand and it will either swing back and forth(boy) or in a circle(girl).
I have heard mixed things about this.  I am hoping its true for us. We have 3 weeks until were finding out.

My friend did it to me when I was in the beginning of my pregnancy and it said girl. Weeks later I went for my ultra sound to find out and they said I'm having a girl. I'm due in 5 days :)

I heard you have to be married when using a "wedding" ring….I am not married and that is why I used the washer…I did it over DF 's palm and it didn't move at all

I did the bobby pin with a piece of yarn gender test and what it does it gives your children in order. Circle for a girl back and forth for boy, it have me two circles and then a back and forth and I have two daughters and I'm pregnant with a boy! And everyone I know that's done it if has worked and it will even bring up sex of a baby you have miscarried and everything!

Never tried it. Where do you usually get it from and how much does it cost.?

it's just a piece of yarn or string and either your wedding ring or a washer (the circular deals that go at the end of a bolt)

It's not a store bought gender test...

Hmm does it matter the size of your ring?? My wedding band is tiny lined with tiny diamond and my engagement ring is like twice that size. I suppose I'd have to use the wedding band though huh? And how thick of a string?? I've heard of doing it with a needle and thread too.

I know I'm having a boy I saw it lol was hoping they'd be wrong as I already have two boys but during a BPP he decided to show us what he's got lmbo right up in the screen that's all we could see.

The ring test has wrk'd on all of my children. But, either way, its pretty much just a stroke of luck kind of thing. The only way to find out is the doctor, but its fun to play the games. It may wrk for some, and may not wrk for others. Theres a bunch of gender games to play online. The chinese gender didnt wrk for me, at all. But good luck and hope you have a little Princess, :)
PS- A boy wldnt be so bad! Let us knw!

The ring test worked with both my girls as well.  With my last pregnancy I tried the chinese gender and it didn't work.  Said I was having a boy when in fact I had a girl.  Good luck!

The Chinese gender says boy but this said girl. Im hoping this is right :) I have been helping take care of my nephews for the last 9 years and I'm ready for a lil girl but no a boy wouldn't be that bad.

I just did it and it did the circles, then held over my hand and it immediately changed to back and forth, I have a 4 year old boy already...I am nearly 11 weeks and want to keep it a mystery! Hope It's a girl!

I tried the ring test and its starts with circular then changes to swinging from side to side ... However when I move it over to my husband its comes to a stop... I have done pegnancy tests but comes back negative ... But the ring shows something totaly difrent...I can also feel movement but very slight and soft movements and not the whole time
