Drano gender test?!

I heard from my Dr. that if you mix drano crystals with urine that you can determine the baby`s sex by the color the concoction turns. She said it was the only old wives tale that she believes in. Does anyone have more detailed info about this (what color it would turn for boy vs. girl), or have you tried this? How accurate was it? I know it is ridiculous. :) Just wondering.

MelissaJoanne - 2842 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) I've heard that it's not very accurate, and the fumes from the Drano are very unsafe for a preggo.

joyfulnoise - 2845 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) I have heard of it but I also heard that pregnant women should not be handling or smelling Drano at all so I stayed away.

RandiLee - 2846 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) I read about it on the net...seems a lot of people are trying it...but just like melanie said, i suggest you get someone else do it because draino's quite harmful.

lmo - 2846 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) i have never heard about the interesting!

holly28 - 2846 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) I find it funny that woman who have answered your question contradict each others answers about what color means what sex. For me, this just goes to prove that it is an old wives tale. Then again, it does have a 50% chance of being right.

klasnaya - 2847 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) I asked one of the nurses at work. She said she tried it and it was wrong for her. But also that inteligender prediction test you can get offline also has drano in it and the company claims its 98 % accurate. Some ppl say its only 80 % accurate, but it was actualy right for alot of ppl! I did it and mine turned dark green almost brown so its a boy. Tomarow i have an ultrasound so i will know if it was correct for me!

johnsokor - 2847 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) The drano test is simple you need about 3oz of pee and 2tbl spoons of crystal drano. put the drano in a glass cup or jar and then pour pee in the jar or cup. wait 10 sec and if it turns brown its a boy but if after 15 seconds it dosent really do anything Girl. Good luck and remember do this out side.

Baby3OnWay - 2847 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) There is information under the forums here on this page about it.. tells you its stink and to do it outside too!! go to forms and then look for baby gender or something along those lines... i know its there!!

gr8scottswife - 2847 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) I've heard about this, but it is risky because of the fumes, etc.

ashleyandcaleb - 2847 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) wow i never heard of that.wonder if it works..

mommy-of-3 - 2847 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) I tried this with another drain cleaner when I was like 11 or 12 weeks and it actually started to smoke and smell funny! I freaked out and quickly dumped it down the drain. Needless to say I couldn't tell you if it's true or not lol.

jessicadarling - 2847 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) Go to the forums and click choosing baby's sex and then gender prediction fun. It shows all the myths. I never even heard of this draino test. I wish I knew about it while I was still pregnant.

Christina1984 - 2847 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) wow i never even heard of this, i might try it!

Brandi J. - 2847 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) This is just an old wives' tale and it does not always work the way it says it will. Also, make sure you do this in a well vetilated location, preferrably outside b/c of the fumes. Hopefully it will work for you the way you want it too. Good luck and God Bless!

julie80 - 2847 days ago Rating: 5 (2 votes) you can read about the drano test under Pregnancy forum and information then go to choosing babies sex. It tells you exactly how to do it and what the color means. Good luck. I have not tried this.

Mommyof2boys - 2847 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) My nail tech was telling me something about that, if it turns a different color its a girl but if it stays the same its a boy. good luck!
