Needle and thread gender prediction test

This gender test is an old wife's tale and just for fun. I never tried it but here are the instructions:

Take a needle or wedding band and tie it to a thread. Hold it over your belly while you are lying down. If the needle or the band swings in a circular motion, then you are having a girl. If it moves back and forth, then are you having a boy.

    I had someone do something similar before we were married, but it was over the hand. I believe our first was a girl and the next was a loss (the thread stopped) and that's what happened. I didn't put much stock into it then, nor do I now, I just think it's ironic that it was right.
