My gut does tell me one thing, and when I share our news I'll tell you if I'm right. I don't know why I don't feel comfortable typing it out there now, but I think it's just something I want to hold a little close to me until our appointment, and until I see if my intuition is correct.
Hank is thinking girl, and it's pretty much the same across that board with my family and friends but I think it's just because we already have a boy that people always think you "should" have the opposite or something, if that makes sense.
I thought it would be fun to take a look at some Old Wives' Tales and see what rings true. I don't believe in any of this stuff but it's still pretty fun to read through them.
Old Wives' Tale #1: Carrying low it's a boy, carrying high it's a girl.
I'm carrying totally different than with Henry. I can even still wear my pre-pregnancy jeans because I'm carrying so high. With Henry he was low, low, low. So this one goes to the girls!
Old Wives' Tale #2: Heart rate. Under 140 it's a boy, over 140 it's a girl.
This baby has been consistently in the 150s at every appointment. So, girl for this one too.
Old Wives' Tale #3: Skin and hair. Both looking good? It's a boy. Broken out and dealing with lifeless, dull hair? Girl, because apparently they "steal your beauty."
As I've talked about before my hair has not been looking its best and my skin has been a nightmare. Opposite of my first pregnancy. Girl again.
Old Wives' Tale #4: Chinese Gender Chart. Not necessarily an "Old Wives' Tale" but I'll still include it. See the chart here.
Boy, and it looks like with this chart I have only have the chance of having a girl during two out of twelve months in my 30th year.
Old Wives' Tale #5: Morning sickness. None, it's a boy. Sick, it's a girl.
I wasn't sick at ALL with Henry, but with this one I was a little queasy in the beginning but never threw up and I wouldn't classify it as morning sickness at all. So this one goes to boy.
So if the Old Wives' Tales are right, at 3/5 it looks like there's a girl in there. Our appointment is at 10:30am, so we will soon see. Can't wait to share the news.
Do you have a guess? Let me know in the comments!
