According to...

The old wives tale with the pencil, needle, and thread...

We will have three children.

Boy, Girl, Girl to be exact.

I was referred to this old wives tale at this blog and so I made hubby do it with me. The first time he did it over my right wrist and it said girl, girl, boy. Over my left wrist with him holding, it say boy, girl, girl. Then again over my right wrist in a different spot and again boy, girl, girl. Then I did it and it said boy, girl, girl. When I held it over Charles' wrist, nothing.

What was weird though, the blog directions say it spins for a really long time, close to a minute, when it says it is done and after the third 'child' it just stops all together. No circles at all.

I also read that it 'reads' miscarriages too. Don't chemical pregnancies fall into that category? If so, I've had four and well it only says I'm going to have three children...

Anyways. It was all in the name of fun. Certainly not running out to buy all boy stuff and get things ready for our first born to be a boy or anything. :-)

So, anyone else try it??? Do tell your 'results'! :-) I thought for sure it would not do anything, indicating we wouldn't have children! haha!

But I do have an issue with it. You see. I've always wanted 4 or 6 children. An even number. None of this odd number stuff. So what gives??? haha! Guess we'll just have to see what happens huh?? :-)

**I did it again and back to back it said girl, boy, girl, boy. So yeah, again, all in the name of fun!**

Hahaha If I remember correctly, I think mine said two girls. But this was years ago before I even got married. :)

I just did it again. {It's amusing!} and it said a total of SIX children! Three boys and three girls. Starting with boys and alternating. I'll take that. :-)
