The Pencil Test

I have found myself to be a Google fanatic lately. Looking up every little symptom I have, symptoms that I might have and tons of belly pictures to compare myself to. Fernando thinks I'm crazy but with this being my first pregnancy I have no idea what to expect! Just the other day I was wondering what the symptoms of twins were because I'm already showing at 7 weeks and I know that's not typically normal. So as I'm searching blogs and peoples Google responses when I come across this lady's blog. She says that her husband thinks she is pregnant with twins because he did the pencil test. I'm sitting there thinking, what the heck is a pencil test and how do I do it! So I search "pencil pregnancy test" and sure enough there are you tube videos and entire websites dedicated to the pencil pregnancy test! So after reading up on it I decided to try it out! I took my needle, thread and #2 pencil and started hovering the pencil over my wrist. The websites stated that if it swung from wrist to elbow then it meant boy, side to side means girl and diagonal means twins. So with my first, second, and third try my results were all the same. If this test is correct Fernando and I will be blessed with twins!

Out of curiosity I have made my mom,sisters,cousins, aunts, grandmother and all the men in the family that already have kids try out this test. The results for my family all came out accurate,crazy huh?!

Tomorrow we will find out if the test is right because I have my first appointment! We are both so excited!
