I had such a wonderful weekend that’s now coming to a close. There was a possibility that I’d post once or twice more over the weekend, but instead I just spent my time enjoying family, food, games, reading, relaxing and walking (plus running with my mom!). I never even had my phone around me or got on a computer. It was marvelous. Our final Christmas weekend came to an end. We were pretty spoiled from everyone in the family. Our little baby got some present too. Here’s all the cute clothes we’ve received/bought for our boy or girl.
Bear suit we bought together + clothes I picked up.
Gifts from Jacob’s parents.
Bibs, rattle booties and cuteness from many family members.
I’d say 3 items are definitely boy, 1 totally girl, and the rest will work either way!
But what will it be? In just 4 days we find out the sex, but I just can’t wait to know. Patience is not my thing.
As I mentioned on Friday, I went through a bunch of old wives tales that predict gender. Here’s how it turned out.
Online old wives tale gender predictor test of 15 questions – GIRL (but really it was 60% girl, 40% boy)
Chinese lunar calendar/gender predictor – 2 BOY, 1 GIRL
Carrying low – BOY
Husband’s weight has stayed the same – BOY
Acne has gotten better (hooray!!) – BOY
Baby’s heart rate (which was around 155 or 160 if I remember correctly) – GIRL
No morning sickness – BOY
Leg hair growing at the same rate as pre-pregnancy (instead of much faster) – GIRL
No huge boob growth – BOY
Craving protein (could also be because I haven’t been eating as much meat) – BOY
Hands very dry – BOY
Age at time of conception (24) + the # for the month you conceive (8) = 32 (even is boy, odd is girl) – BOY
Moodier than usual – GIRL
Nose not widening – GIRL
Belly shaped like a basketball – BOY
Fuller, smoother hair – BOY
Placenta position (on right for boy, left for girl) – BOY
Gut feeling – BOY
And the total is….
BOY – 14
GIRL – 7
Another way to look at it… 66% chance of boy, 33% change of girl.
But what do I really think? We really think it will be a boy (although my mother in law is convinced it is a girl), but when it gets down to it, I know there’s a 50/50 chance for either. And I’ll be happy either way. So hurry up Friday, can you get here a little sooner?!?!?!
Are there any other gender predictors you’ve heard about that I should run through? They were pretty fun, but extremely ridiculous.
Happy new years! Hope you’re enjoying your extra time off.
