Well folks, we've had to reschedule our ultrasound appointment a few times due to their schedule and then ours. The day is actually TODAY! We are going to have to keep it a secret all week for the little gender reveal gathering we are having Saturday. I thought it'd be fun to do some old wives tales so ya'll can be better informed to make a guess.
-Heart-Rate- If the baby's heart-rate is less than 140 beats per minute it's a boy. If it is more than 140 beats per minute it's a girl! Baby #2's has been in the 150's.
-Toddler Advice: Get baby advice from a nephew or friend's
little boy. If a toddler boy shows interest in your belly, you'll have a
girl. If he ignores you, it's a boy.
Well, Max pretty much ignores it, so boy.
-Chinese Gender Predictor- Use the chinese gender predictor. This chinese gender predictor will change your month at conception or due date month into the "lunar" month. Mine says Girl
-Shape Of Belly- If your belly is high and wide it's a girl. If your belly is low and sticking strait out it's a boy. I don't really have a belly so Inconclusive.
-Cravings- Craving salt during pregnancy?
Potato chips, pretzels, and popcorn means a boy is on the way. Need a
little something sweet? Ice cream, chocolate, and candy means you're
having a girl.
I still love mexican food and could live without sweets so I'll say boy.
-Upset Stomach- Little girls aren't always sweet. Extreme nausea means you are having a daughter.
I had all day nausea so girl?
-Partner's Weight Gain- If your partner is gaining weight like you are it's a girl. If there is no weight gain from him it's a boy.
David's probably more pregnant than I am lol. We haven't done a weight check on him though :) Girl
-Side You Rest On- If you rest on your right side it's a girl. If you rest on your left side it's a boy.
I thought you were supposed to rest on your left side per Doctors order so I have been... boy?
Mother Knows Best- The mom-to-be usually knows what she is having.
I think it's a boy.
Everything is very similar to when I was pregnant with Max, almost
exactly. So I'd be very surprised if it was a girl. Ya never know,
So there ya have it. Not very scientific, but those are the old wives tales. Prediction poll up for a few more days. Keeping a secret will be the hard part. My sister has refused to wait so I will be telling her husband and he will be doing a surprise gender party for her tonight! So fun. Make sure you follow me on instagram for the reveal Saturday night (Jens871).
