How to Use Your Pendulum to Predict the Gender of an Unborn Baby

Pendulums have long been used to predict the gender of an unborn child. This method is still used today by mothers from all walks of life. Traditionally a pendulum for this particular use is made by stringing the expectant mother's wedding ring onto a ribbon, thread, or strand of her hair - but feel free to use a regular pendulum if you have one.

For this task, you'll need a pendulum and an expectant mother. The pendulum does not need to be programmed.

Before beginning, and this is really important, get the pregnant woman's permission to dowse. Then have her get comfortable, either seated or lying down. Hold the pendulum about an inch or so directly above her belly and wait for the pendulum to swing. A circular swing means the baby is a girl and a straight-line swing means it's a boy.

An alternate way to do this is to simply ask your pendulum, "Is _______'s unborn child a girl?" (again - with the mother-to-be's permission). You can also use the pendulum to ask other relevant questions about the pregnancy, such as date she will deliver.
