The baking soda gender test is an at-home method that involves combining a pregnant woman’s urine with baking soda to see if it fizzes like pop or does nothing to determine the sex of baby
There is some “science” behind the test. Baking soda reacts with acids, causing some acids to fizz and bubble. The theory behind the test is that the acidity, or PH of a pregnant woman’s urine will change based on the sex of her unborn baby.
Please do note, there is no proof that the sex of an unborn baby has any effect on the pH of a woman’s urine. Also, many other known factors can make a woman’s urine more or less acidic.
How to do the baking soda gender test
A pregnant woman who wants to try this test must collect her urine in a clean container the first time she uses the bathroom in the morning.
This first-morning urine must be used for the test because the woman’s urine may become diluted as she drinks fluids throughout the day.
It is important to wash the hands thoroughly before collecting urine.
To collect the urine, a woman can squat over the toilet and hold the container/cup under her while releasing a small amount of urine.
The next step is to add an 3 table spoons of baking soda into another cup preferably clear so you can see the reaction!
pour the urine just enough to cover the soda and watch what happens
Interpreting the results
One of two things will happen when baking soda is added to urine.
The urine will either fizz like pop, or it will stay the same!
If the urine fizzes, then folklore regarding the baking soda test says the woman is carrying a boy.
If the urine remains the same, it suggests she will have a girl.

Unfortunately, the results of the baking soda gender test are only accurate about half of the time — no more accurate than a coin toss.
Many other factors can affect the pH of a woman’s urine, including:
Because so many variables affect the pH level of urine, a woman may get different results on different days if she takes the test more than once
THESE KIND OF TESTS ARE JUST FOR MAKING THE WAIT FUN!
