What’s it Going to Be? Boy or Girl


October 17, 2011

Tomorrow morning is the big day friends! I can’t believe it’s finally here… as my sweet, but very routine and by-the-books OB/GYN doesn’t do “early gender” ultrasounds, Jeff and I sought the assistance from a local ultrasound clinic in Nashville to find out sooner. {yes, I know, we’re sneaky and just have to know}

With that, I thought it would be fun to take a little trip through the old wives’ tales, predictions from those closest to us, and then we’ll see where we end up regarding the scale of boy or girl…

Mommy’s Intuition: BOY
Jeff’s Guess: GIRL
Parents: Mom says GIRL/Dad says BOY
Grandparents’ Guesses: Mine say GIRL/Jeff’s Grandmother says BOY
Friends’ Votes: All say GIRL, except for Candice and Cami who say BOY
Work Friends’ Intuition: BOY

And then for the crazy old wives’ tales and fanatical tests from everywhere and anywhere:

Chinese Baby Chart: BOY {see here}

Old Wives’ Tales Pointing to GIRL: craving sweets, crazy boughts of mood swings, both odd numbers for year of conception and age, and my boobs are now huge ginormous
Old Wives’ Tales Pointing to BOY: very small amount of morning sickness, no change in breakouts/acne, little weight gain in the face, carrying the baby lower, wedding ring/necklace pendulum test swung back and forth in a line,  hair fuller and shinier, and lower than 150 bpm heartrate
We’re off to see the wizard…well, the baby wizard! Place your final bets here or off to the side, where the votes are most certainly pointing to GIRL.
And I know you’re all well aware, but the suspense will have to continue for a few short days as our gender reveal party with family and close friends is this weekend…I have to keep a secret for a whopping 3.5 days…let’s just hope I can keep a straight face when people see me 😉

    Exciting! We chose not to find out and the suspense is killing me 🙂 We have about three weeks left until baby arrives and we know for sure!

  2. The Mauney's says:

    I think boy… but mainly because the ginormous boobs for me came with the boy and not the girl (until after). How exciting… can't wait to hear the news!

  3. Day Old News says:

    Very exciting! Good luck!

  4. Day Old News says:

    Very exciting! Good luck!

  5. Shari says:

    So cute! I can't wait to see what you are having. 🙂

  6. Nicole-Lynn says:

    Ahhh, how exciting! I voted boy from the very beginning! 🙂

  7. Stephanie says:

    This is so funny that you just posted this because I just posted about a gender reveal I did for one of my girlfriends this weekend! 🙂

    I'm gonna say boy-but only because I'm partial to little boys! 🙂

    BTW-my friend, who is having a boy, had AWFUL morning sickness…I dunno about all those old wives tales?! (Perhaps that's why they're called "tales") lol 😉


  8. Liesl says:

    I think a gender reveal party is such a good idea. When my hubby and I decide to have a baby I hope to have a reveal party like this 🙂


  28. Jess says:

    I just totally stalked your blog to find this post…I knew you had said that you went to a different doctor for your gender ultrasound. How did you find someone else? I cannot wait until 20 weeks to find out and and am dying to know ASAP!! 🙂
