View Full Version : Cabbage gender test - real or fake?
I have just heard about a red cabbage gender test, so off i rushed to the grocery store and bought me a nice big chunk of red cabbage.
Just wanted to know of others experience with this and just how accurate is it?
never heard of it sorry...
but will be interested to see what others think/ say...
what is it? I'm intrigued :)
You boil red cabbage for 10 minutes the mix that water with your urine. Something to do with the fact the cabbage changes colour when it reacts to the ph levels in your urine... or something along those lines!! If it stays purple its a girl if it goes red/pink its a boy.
Well mine is purple.... a girl then???
Here are the instructions:
1.Go to the store and buy a red cabbage. The size of the cabbage does not matter at all.
2.Cut the cabbage into big chunks. The smaller you cut the chunks, the better your results will turn out.
3.Boil some water on the stove and put in the chunks of cabbage.
4.Let the water and cabbage boil for about 10 minutes or so. When the ten minutes is up, remove it from the heat.
5.Grab a cup and go to the bathroom! Pee into the cup.
6.In a separate cup, mix 1 part of your urine to 1 part of the water that the cabbage was boiled in. No need to save the cabbage unless you want to eat it. It's pretty tasty, so you might want to eat it!
7.If the urine/cabbage water turns pink or red then this indicates a boy result! If the urine/cabbage water turns purple, this indicates a girl result.
i did it this preg result was a girl but im having a boy. ive had 2 scans and two sonographers say it is 110% a boy:yes:. so didnt work for me. think i was about 10 weeks along when i did it.
I guess it's 50/50 :laughing: It's basically a Ph test, but your urine Ph levels don't necessarily indicate gender, it is a bit of an old wives tale I think. But it's fun to do anyway :) I got a girl result, we should find out in a few weeks!
