Boy or Girl??

Well Niblet, Mommy has taken 2 different quizzes and one says that there is a 60% chance you are a boy and the other says that I have a 47% chance of having a boy. And I have a 52% chance of having a girl. Hmmmmm. Well, I guess we will find our for sure on Wednesday when we have our big ultrasound. Hopefully you will cooperate. Now mommy and daddy just need to decide on names for you in case you are a girl..... Stay tuned.

Based on old wives's the breakdown:


You have a 42% chance of having a boy. And you have a 57% chance of having a girl.

And Here's Why...
You are carrying the extra weight around the hips and bottom, so it's a girl.

The hair on your legs is growing faster during pregnancy, so it's a boy.

Boys are carried low. You are going to have a boy.

Sleeping in a bed with your pillow to the north indicates that you will be having a boy.

Your feet are colder than they were before pregnancy. You are having a boy.

You refuse to eat the heel of a loaf of bread. You are having a girl.

Dad-to-be hasn't been gaining weight along with Mom-to-be, so it will be a girl.

The maternal grandmother doesn't have gray hair (dyed or natural), so a girl will be born.

You had morning sickness early in pregnancy, so you are expecting a girl.

You are not looking particularly good during pregnancy. Therefore, it must be a girl, because
girls steal their mother's looks.

Your chest development has been quite dramatic during pregnancy. You should expect a girl.

Since the sum of the mother's age at conception and the number of the month of conception is even, it will be a boy.

Your urine is a dull yellow color, so you will have a girl.

You are craving sweets, which means that it is a girl.

Your nose hasn't changed during pregnancy, which indicates a girl.You have been craving
fruits, so it is a girl.

Your baby's heart rate is below 140 beats per minute, so it's a boy.

You have no desire for orange juice, so it's a boy.

You are having headaches, so it's a boy.

You show them the palm of your hand, so it's a girl.

You use the handle, so it's a boy.

You really like Slurpees!

Mommy had her first Slurpee yesterday since she found out she was pregnant and you LOVED it. You were moving around like crazy. You definitely liked the sugar silly little one!

We love you!

16 5/7 weeks

We saw Dr. Collins today. We also got to hear you on the doppler. Your heartbeat was nice are strong in the 130s. (So much different then your brother who was always in the 150s) Mommy thinks that she is starting to feel you move a little bit. You don't do it constantly, but every so often mommy thinks she feels a little flutter.

Dr. Collins told mommy that we could schedule our comprehensive U/S in the next couple weeks. Mommy made sure to call and schedule it for 4/4 when Dr. Bartlesmeyer would be there. (He did all of your brother's U/S and did our U/S in January) Mommy also has to go and get more blood drawn for the triple screen test. This is going to test to see if you have Down's syndrome, spina bifida or another neural tube defect. Mommy had it done with your brother and everything was great, so she doesn't expect anything but good news.

We love you!
