Again, a key aspect is to record ones premonitions at the time they occur, not later after they can be verified. Only by doing this, and also by being thorough about it  recording all premonitions  can one determine any truth about them. Otherwise, our natural selffooling and memoryselection/distortion tendencies interfere with any truth or valuefinding about them.
I urge any of you who are interested in premonitions to start developing a habit of recording them (with date/time/place/other circumstances) ASAP when they occur to you. Though you may forget to do so in many cases at first, you can train yourselves to get better at this over time. (When you forget to record one immediately, but realize that later, write down the details ASAP then, including of course the matter of when/where you were remindedto later.) When you reach the level of practically always doing this, you will have a valuable dataset with which to compare later outcomes!

I can fairly accurately predict the kind of baby a pregnant woman will get. (boy or girl). From the last 31 pregnancies I've guessed 23 right. Still might be coincidence, but it sure feels 'right' :)
If I calculated all right I have a 0,533% chance to get 23+...
