While some of us like a surprise when our baby is born… the rest of us just can’t waaait to find out whether or not we’re having a boy or a girl.
And it seems like pregnant Jools Oliver needs an answer, too!
The mum-of-4 (soon to be mum-of-5) shared a picture of herself undergoing the ‘pendulum test’ on Instagram.
“Asking the pendulum if our little baby is a boy or a girl??? Loving my Wednesday yoga thanks Nards @nadianarain so fun @jamieoliver ✨ xxx” she captioned the sweet photo.
Apparently, if the pendulum swings back and forth near your belly, you’re expecting a boy. But if it moves in a circular motion, you’ll be having a girl.
While this test is just a bit of fun, the fact Jools didn’t reveal which way the pendulum swung sent some of her Instagram followers into a bit of a frenzy.
“And??? Boy or girl? My pendulum always tells me a boy (I have already) and a girl (never arrived)?” wrote one fan.
“Which way did it swing? This worked for us ??” asked another.
But some fans were a bit more sceptical, wondering: “Why not just ask the doc? ??”
Jools is probably just teasing – something she’s already done once before – because she’s 7 months along and may already know what she’s having.
But we just can’t wait to see if she and husband Jamie Oliver will be needing another floral-inspired name choice.
The couple already has three daughters together: Petal Blossom, Daisy Boo and Poppy Honey. They also have a son, named Buddy Bear. They announced they were expecting baby no 5 in March this year.
So, have you tried the pendulum test – and did it work? What other old wives’ tales did you try and what did they reveal? Let us know on Facebook
