It really does work

I did this test when I was pregnant with my now 6 year old. Back then they wouldn't tell u the sex. It was the only choice I had. It went in circles and I was so happy. And it was right it was a boy. I am just newly conceived. An I tried this test again it went in circles. I thought maybe I am loosin my mind. So I put the ring over the bed to see I it moved. It didn't. I tried it on my husband. It didn't move. I got him to do it over my belly. Sure enough it's spinning in circles!! So excited!!

gold or silver

The results depends on the ring you use, if the ring is silver then circle means boy and back and forth means girl. If the ring is gold then back and forth means boy and circle means girl. I have tested this and works every time.

Yes it works

Used test on myself - 2 girls. Worked on my daughter with 1st child - girl, next child should be a boy. I'm a believer!

So what means what? Bc every where I read never says the same thing. I don't know what to go by.
—Guest chel

I'm not sure at this point :-/

I've tried it four times and the ring keeps going in circles. I have a daughter and a son already. This is baby #3

—Guest heather


I did the needle and string test and it will go side to side and then start going in a cercel. What does this mean?
—Guest Lindsey

What They Mean

I love this test. To avoid confusion, I say, "show me boy" (then say "stop" to get the ring to stop moving), then "show me girl" and "stop." Then I ask, "Am I having a boy or a girl?" The test has been accurate for my first two kids (circle for girl, and back-and-forth for boy). Pregnant with #3...will find out in 8 months if its right!
—Guest Aleks


What if you are not married and you don't have a ring??
—Guest AskingAllThemQuestions!!!


A co-worker did this test to all the females, and got the order and the sex of all their children right. I did the test on myself twice, and got the same results she did. Mine was girl, boy. I have a daughter and am expecting with baby#2. Have to wait a couple of months to find out the sex. Did it to my DH and got the same results as me.

Ring test is right

I have a friend who is having a girl for sure, I had her do the test and it goes side to side. My sister-in-law is having a boy for sure her's go's in circles. I had them do this test because I am pregnant and I wanted to know if this is true and I am a believer but my result goes in circles on the right side of my belly and side to side on the left side of my belly, so I'm hoping it's not telling me it's a boy and girl I will freak....
