Looking for your odd, obscure and downright odd tests for pregnant ladies.

So my sister is pregnant (hooray for her!) and is obsessed with all things pregnancy related. Today she told me about a home test where she pours pee on baking soda and it tells her she's got a boy or a girl. I've heard of the dangling of a wedding ring (or is it a spoon?) above the pregnant belly, but was wondering if you all knew of any other "tests?" I think she'd get a kick out of trying out old wives' tales, she's pretty much game for anything. I'd like to stay away from the more medical tests (she will be doing lots of those), I'd rather find the more historically linked/ folklore based stuff. Thanks a ton everyone!
