Baking Soda Gender Test

For years my grandmother swore by using  Baking Soda Gender test. As for myself I was a little bit skeptical to say the least. My mother didn’t want to know what gender she was having so she didn’t  try. Me on the other hand I wanted to know and living several miles from my doctor one day I was searching on the internet and came across the baking soda test. Well since I already had somebaking soda gender test in the frig, I figured what the heck. After checking out several pages I was able to learn how to do the test and ran off to the bathroom with my baking soda and a cup. Sure enough it was fizzing by the time I made it back into the Kitchen. I jumped on the phone to call granny and of course she said I told you so.I did have a son that we named Brandon and this was eventually confirmed by an ultrasound later. The Baking Soda gender test was right. These are just my results maybe I was lucky or maybe the baking soda was right.

Important: Do the test first thing in the morning when you get up. Your urine will be at it’s strongest.

How to do a Baking Soda Gender Test

baking soda gender test cupThe first thing you want to do is put a little bit of baking soda in the bottom of a disposable cup,one you dont use for anything or is going to be thrown away. I keep one and labeled it and kept on the shelve above the washing machine or you could by a package of clear solo cups. You will need somewhere around two teaspoons of baking soda.Try to use a fresh box,not one that has been sitting in the refrigerator for months like I did. The baking soda was to old and the gender test did not take. Next then add a little bit of your urine to it,just enough to cover the soda,somewhere around one third of a cup. Now fill your cup  and then add the two teaspoons of  baking soda.If it fizzles like a like a carbonated soft drink , it may be a boy. If there’s no fizzle, it may be a girl. When I did mine the right way the second I added the baking soda to the pee it started to fizz right away. This meant I would be having a boy.

I found this you tube video will show the basic principles of how to do a baking soda gender test.



Does the Baking Soda Gender test work?

I am sure their people like my granny who swear buy it.I think for me it was just fun to think maybe it’s a boy.Just maybe…I just wonder who thought it would be a good idea to pee in a cup for a  baking soda gender test to predict if you where going to have a boy or a girl.

If you happen to try the Baking Soda Gender test I would like to here your results if you want a more accurate test kit try Intelligender Gender Prediction Test Kit . Here is the bestselling and a Pregnancy Gender Predictor Test and it is a lot cheaper,It uses first morning urine and a proprietary mix of chemicals which reacts with a combination of hormones to indicate the gender of your baby. It can be performed as early as 10 weeks (six weeks from the first day of the missed period). It only takes ten minutes for the results. It is an easy test to perform and provides quick results in-home so the news can be shared right away.If you really want to know.Thanks for stopping by,Allisha



  1. I am 17 weeks abd 3 days pregnant! I have not gotten a ultrasound yet to tell me the gender of my baby and im starting to get unpacient! I took the gender test and it didnt sizzle or bubble! So i guess that means im having a girl? But does this test really , actually work?? I want to be sure!

    • An ultrasound would be the only 100% sure fire way to know the gender.

    • I had an ultrasound done yesterday, at 16 weeks, there was no sign of a penis at all so they’re thinking girl. This morning I did the baking soda test and it literally did not react at all! Did not fizz or produce a single bubble, nothing! I’ve watched several videos of boy reactions and I have to say this test is pretty accurate. I’m having a girl and the test did not react, so that means girl.

  2. Baby gender before the birth and conception.

    To do this I have a group at facebook.
    Group is called Baby gender by parents photo

  3. I did mine both ways–first add baking soda then urine–then other ways–both times-no fizzle…just had my ultra sound and I’m having a girl!;) so it worked for me.

  4. banking soda test done after how maney week

  5. I learned about this test today. I’m 13 weeks. I learned not to use first morning urine bc of the alkalinity. So i tried both ways, one first in the morning, one during the day. I tried asking pee to soda and vice versa both times. So 4 out of 4tests said “girl”…no fizzle.

  6. I tried the bakin soda at 13 weeks it went fizzy I’ve sinced had my ultrasound and it is a boy

  7. Laricia Gantt says:

    I tried the baking soda test. It started to bubble up when i first poured the pee in, but then it stopped. Does that mean it is a boy?

  8. I’m 12 weeks and I tried it in the evening and at night time both times it fizzled a little nothing big. So does that mean a boy? I also used the banking soda that was in the refrigerator so does that make a difference?

  9. According to the Ramzi method, I am supposed to be having a girl, but after taking the baking soda test with LOTS of fizz…this would mean boy (yay). Im 13 weeks today and find out next month what gender we’re having. This is exciting because its my 3rd pregnancy. 1st was a boy, had hyperemesis and was sick the entire time. with my girl, I was naucious and I considered it a (normal typical) pregnancy. This one, not one symptom. Had I not recently started feeling a bump and confirmed my pregnancy 3 times, with ultrasound, I wouldn’t have known. (loving this) Makes time fly by. Im due 9/11/15 cant wait to find out what we’re having!

    • Hopingforaboy says:

      I having the same kind of pregnancy! When people ask me how I have been feeling, I tell them “not pregnant”. Lol. I have 3 girls and was super sick with all three of them. I did the bs test today and it seriously looked like a glass of draft beer with a lot of “head” at the top. I am 10 weeks tomorrow

    • Alicia, did you find out the result of your test?

  10. I’m 14 weeks and 4 days pregnant. I did the test today and it fizzled right away and a lot! So with that it says it’s going to be a boy. I have my next appt in about 3 weeks so let’s see if what if not i will have to wait until im 20 weeks to find out what it will be.

  11. I am 11 weeks and 3 days. I am on my 3rd pregnancy and hoping for my boy this time around. My oldest are both girls.
    I did the baking soda test and it fizzed ALOT which means a boy, I also have taken the intelligender test in which that said boy too so maybe just maybe these tests are correct! It would be so nice to have a little boy in the house, especially for my husband’s sake.

  12. vanessa d says:

    I did this test when i was pregnant with my son and for me it was correct. Along with all the other old wives tales except the Chinese gender prediction.

  13. This is baby number four for me and the first three are all girls. I never tried the gender test or any of the old wives tales with them but with baby number 4 I’m so anxious t o find out. I’m 14 weeks and tried the baking soda and it fizzled like sprite and had foam at the top. So I’m guessing it’s a boy. I also tried it with the bleach and it foamed all the way to the top. As per the old wives tale it’s a boy! I’ll be taking my next ultrasound at 20wks and see what baby number 4 is…. :)

  14. Can’t wait. .. maybe I should try the intelligender

  15. Dear Sir/madam

    can we use Baking Powder instead of baking soda in the test “Baking Soda Gender Test” ?.

  16. Hopingforaboy says:

    I first did the baking soda test when I was around 5-6 weeks. It bubbled a little bit but didn’t fizz. I was using somewhat older baking soda. Today I went and bought a new box and tried the test again. I will be 10 weeks tomorrow. It looked like a glass of draft beer with a lot of foam at the top! I have 3 girls already and my husband is really hoping this test is accurate :-). Due 10-27-15

  17. I m 12 weeks pregnant. .I found that the baking soda in cup fizzing but I have a question that the baking soda one month old..
    which I have seen .is right that I have boy..

  18. I’m only 6 weeks I’m obsessed with knowing the gender since I want a little girl. I went and got a brand new box of baking soda don’t know the exact measurements of baking soda used but it bubbled for a second or 2 then looked like beer. Is that boy or girl.

  19. I’m 18 weeks and took the baking soda test today. I think I did it in reverse though. I added the soda to the pee, not sure if that makes a difference. It foamed up a lot. We have our ultrasound next week so we will see if it was right.

  20. Haileigh says:

    This is my second pregnancy and I am 7 weeks as of today. My first child is a boy. I just did this and according to this test, this one should be a boy too!!! I really hope it is!!

  21. Thanks banking soda test…today we got news from ultra sound I have a boy….

  22. I close 12 weeks today,my first baby was a girl so now in my second pregnancy I wish to have a boy…I am sick all this time,I throw up,I have no power,I m lazy and I cant do even my houswork . I made this soda test before a week and it didn’t fizzle…I repeat it today and it fizzle like a beer…so I think is a boy….I hope,,,,lets see what will say about that the ultrasound,I dont know when I will do that yet,but Im happy that my baby is healthy and his/Her heart was 152 per minute so this make me to be in doubt that it is a girl

    • When i did my test it did the same. No fizzle at first then next time it fizzled. My baby’s heartbeat was around 154 to 156 when i saw my doctor. I went friday and had my sonogram and we found our we are having a boy! So hopefully your is a boy too.

  23. Im not sure abt my test. I fizzed alittle nit like soda or beer. Does that mean girl?

  24. I did it and it bubbled a little like beer then Stopped? Boy?

  25. Natasha says:

    Hi, I am 7 weeks pregnant, last week I did this test and it foamed up like beer. However today I repeated it, and it did nothing. So confused. Happened to anyone here?

    • Allisha says:

      Try again when you get up in the morning and see what happens. Let me know how it goes..

    • Natasha says:

      **Update ** – tried in morning with FMU and no reaction.. Looks like a girl result. Also at my 8 week ultrasound baby’s HR was 168, I am guessing girl!

  26. Valerie says:

    looks like foamy beer…

  27. I did this at 7 weeks and it was totally flat, no reaction. Using same box of baking soda at 16 weeks, I did the test again and it fizzled and foamed like a good beer. If it said girl the first time and boy the second time…? Is there an ideal time in pregnancy to do this when it may be most accurate? :)

    • Allisha says:

      Jessa never heard of this happening before . Wonder if it has happened to anyone else.

    • When I first heard of this test I tried it (and it was at night with a box that was in the fridge) the reaction was completely flat no fizzle. I redid in the morning and it then fizzled a lil. I retook the test with a new box and it fizzled a lot more. We are having a boy.

    • Well, we found out that we are having a girl (finally!) I just thought it was funny that using the same box but testing 2 times 8 weeks apart gave such different results. :)

  28. Jasmine says:

    So I’m 14 weeks today and I took the baking Soda test this morning, it fizzed and then looked like a draft beer. I didn’t expect that so I had to laugh when u saw it. I took it 2 days ago also about 4 in the afternoon, fizzed for about 3 seconds then nothing, today I used first morning urine and totally different. I will be getting my u/s may 28th and I can’t wait to find out! Hubby and I are hoping for a boy, we already have a 6 year old little lady :) I will let yall know the results!

  29. I just took the test and it did in fact foam up like beer I’m 20 and 8 weeks and dearly want a boy

  30. I’m 5 weeks pregnant I tried this morning with first urin it fizzed and little bid came up . Is it boy??

  31. Hi.. I m 12 wks now.. I tried this backing soda test.. When I add urine to backing soda it bubbles up BT when I add backing soda to urine no reaction at all.. Please let any1 comes under this kind?.. Wat it mean.. Chinese Gender prediction says boy..

  32. I did the test and there were maybe 5 little bubbles then nothing? I’m 9 weeks.

  33. Porsche says:

    I am 9.5 weeks and did the baking soda test today around 1pm with refrigerator baking soda and it did not fizz, we have 1 6yr old boy and 3girls after that. WE are hoping for a boy so we can be done. So is it best with fmu, and new warm baking soda? Or it really doesn’t matter?

  34. MelissaH says:

    I’m 17 weeks pregnant and I did this test today with my first morning urine and fresh baking soda it fizzle and foamed like a beer. It’s a boy!!!
    I’ll find out in 2 weeks what I’m actually having.

  35. Kaitlyn says:

    Do I add baking soda to my urine or urine to baking soda?

  36. Patricia says:

    I’m lost I did the test a ten weeks it went crazy now I’m 12 weeks it does nothing all was morning pee has anyone have same

  37. MelissaH says:

    I can say that the baking soda test is accurate (or maybe is a coincidence)
    But I posted a couple of weeks ago and my urine foamed like a beer. We went for our sono today and is a boy!

  38. My sister and I did the test today. She is 14 weeks and hers was flat as a board. Mine fizzled a lot so it looks like I’m having a boy. I’m six weeks so I guess we will wait and see!!!!

  39. I did this test with my last baby and it was flat. I did end up having a girl so it worked for me. I know I took the test further along in my pregnancy when baby refused to open her legs. I wonder if the further along you are the more accurate it will be? I’m almost 14 weeks along with my 4th and would be curious to try again and see if it’s correct.

  40. Cecelia Chavez says:

    Image try this test and see what it says then my sono is on the 16 I’ll update on both results✴:-) :-)

  41. I took this at around 8 weeks I’m now 16 weeks it said in was having a boy harmony test said I’m having a girl so test at 8 weeks was incorrect hope this helps someone

  42. ChelsCastaldoBaby#2 says:

    I am 9weeks pregnant with baby number 2! My first is a boy. I have had a feeling since day one of finding out that this one is a girl. I’ve done all the little old wives tales and they all say girl. (they were all right with my first born, including the Chinese calendar) I used the test this morning, twice actually, both had no reaction at all. I’m hoping for a girl! I’ve already had 5 ultrasounds and go in for my next this coming week. (yes 5 before my 12th week, I’m extremely high risk due to cancer I’ve had since 2008) doctor said this is my last chance to have another baby and it’s a miracle that I was even able to get pregnant the first time, let alone again! So fingers crossed for a girl for me!! :)

  43. Hello im 5 weeks pregnant. This is my 5th pregnancy i have 4 boys and want to have a baby girl. Try my morning pee and it fizz like a beer so i think im having a boy again

  44. Bernadette says:

    Had an ultrasound @ 11 weeks but baby measured 9 days ahead at 12w4d – seen a ding dong but apparently both have them at 11 weeks, so sonographer said 50:50 still / have a few more weeks to wait to check again – can’t shake feeling it’s a girl so did the bread soda test this morning and showed a girl lol thinking boy but funny if old wives tale proved right

  45. Jasmine says:

    I just tried, and judging from the fizz and bubbles I’m having a boy! (YESSS!!!) I also tried the pencil trick which indicated the same. I’m 15wks today, and planning to find out the gender next weekend. I know it’s all in fun, but with everyone around wishing a girl on me for this 2nd pregnancy, I really needed some renewed hope for a boy.

    • UPDATE: I re-did the test just now, and despite the test predicting I would have a boy (again), I am definitely having a girl, confirmed by ultrasound last Friday. Oh well, At least I had fun.

  46. I’m 9 weeks and 5 days pregnant. Everything screams girl to me. Even a week before o found out I was pregnant I had a dream I had a baby girl. I wasn’t supposed to be able to have any more kids so thia miracle was a huge pleasant surprise :) I just tried the baking soda test and it barely bubbled then was flat. Does that mean girl? Also all the other wives tales say girl :) I’ll be happy no matter what but was just curious if anyone else experienced that during there test then found out at there ultrasound it was a girl? :)

  47. Samantha says:


  48. When I did the baking soda test using FMU and new baking soda, it was flat, no reaction. I ended up having a baby girl!!!!

  49. It was correct for my last pregnancy (no fizz)!! This time I’m 9.5 weeks and BIG FIZZ will update as soon as I know if it’s correct (I’m sure it is!)

  50. Angela Westbrook says:

    I am 24 weeks. We had an ultrasound 2 weeks ago saying we are expecting a girl…when I did the baking soda test is fizzed like crazy…gonna try it a few more times….Might have to ask for another ultrasound….

  51. The test is,not,accurate. Its fun to do and guess and all but ita,not right.

  52. Alicia Miller says:

    Accurate for both me and my friend. We are both having boys!

  53. Katelyn Townsend says:

    I did this test and never have done it before, I have 2 boys and hoping for a girl, when I did my test I poured the urine in the baking soda and it didn’t do anything but if I looked through the glass you could see little bubbles but not much, what does this mean; boy or girl? Need advise please

    • try it again first thing in the morning. How far along are you?

      • Katelyn Townsend says:

        I’m 14 weeks today. I tried it again this morning and the same thing happened, it definitely didn’t sizzle or anything and it was really calm but if I looked through the glass it had little bubbles bubbling. I just wasn’t sure what result that gave me as to a boy or girl.
