                Gender Guessing

In honor of my gender reveal being in less than ONE week (eeeek!) I thought it would be kinda fun to test out all those old wives tales you hear so much about! Disclosure: I KNOW none of these are true but it is all for fun! So without further ado…

Baby’s heartbeat: ABOVE or BELOW 140?
Headaches: MORE or LESS?
Cravings: SWEET or SALTY?
Sleeping on: LEFT or RIGHT?
Skin: SOFT or DRY?
Morning sickness: YES or NO?
Feet temperature: COLD or SAME?
Heartburn: YES or NO?
Chinese Calendar: BOY
Mayan Calendar: well I keep finding two different ways to figure this out!

One way is that you add up the numbers from my age and the year of conception and if it is even it’s a girl, odd it’s a boy.
2+0+2+0+1+3=8 =GIRL

The second way is if the age and year are both even or odd it is a girl, if one is even and one is odd it’s a boy! So age 20 in year 2013= BOY

Baking soda test: you combine your pee with a tablespoon of baking soda and if it fizzes like beer it’s a boy, if it does nothing it’s a girl. Mine did nothing= GIRL

Daddy thinks: GIRL
Mommy thinks: BOY


Weekly questionnaire: I will not be doing one of these EVERY week, cause that can get a bit repetitive cause things aren’t changing that quickly! Maybe I’ll do every 3 weeks!

How far along: 15 weeks
Total weight gain: none
Maternity clothes: not yet! But I plan on going shopping next weekend for some pants! Right now I’m living in leggings, anything that puts any type of pressure on my stomach makes me really sick. Luckily I am going to be at my biggest through out the summer so I plan on living in my swimming suit and summer dresses! Oh those will be the days.

Stretch marks: oh heavens no! I have however tried just about every cream/lotion/ \oil out there only to gag and puke at the smell or texture. Seriously? Luckily I found one that has zero smell and is absorbed quickly! 100% organic vitamin E oil; which is known for its skin hydration and rejuvenation, reducing the appearance of wrinkles, scars, and stretch-marks, I apply morning and night and then Shea lotion randomly through out the day! However I bet my butt is going to get stretch marks before my stomach, it won’t stop growing haha!

Best moment of the week: I had my 15 week check up yesterday and we got to hear the heartbeat again, even though I listen to it every day, it still puts the biggest smile on my face! Also my headaches have been getting seriously UNBEARABLE, (thank you Chiari) but she referred me to a specialist doctor that I have an appointment with in a couple weeks to go over what special precautions to take during pregnancy and how labor is going to go, I’ve researched that I’ll have to have a C-section because of increased spinal pressure….I really hope not, but we will see! Ideally, I would like to birth in a birth center, but because the nearest one is an hour away, that might have to wait until my next baby!

Miss anything: SUSHI! Ugh so much! And I miss being about to shove my face full and having to unbutton my pants because I ate so much. The second I am the slightest bit full, there is no way one more bite of food is going in my mouth. Blahh!

Food cravings: Krispy Kreme donuts and super super tart lemonade! Like Chick-fil-a’s! Oh and trail mix!

Anything make me queasy or sick: oh man could I go on! Well to start I can’t step foot into my pantry, don’t know why, something smells in there, I have a feeling it’s Mogley’s dog food! And targets popcorn! That smell…bleh!

Gender: see all the guesses above! We find out next Friday but I think it’s a boy! Everyone asks me if we have a preference; not at all! We will love it the same!

Movement: I can HEAR tons and tons of movement! I can hear it like swimming around in there! However, I am not feeling anything yet!

Symptoms: constant stuffy nose (thank you progesterone), major migraines, back pain, I have like random eczema spots on my face!

Looking forward too: duh, finding out what is growing inside me! Besides a baby…

In honor of all the fun and games, I want to hear your guessing for Gender!! Little Miss or Mr?
