We are getting SO close to finding out the gender of our precious little one (hopefully!). I thought it would be fun to see if we could prove some old wives tales wrong (or right). So, here it goes:

Heartbeat abover 140 BPM: girl
Mother's age at conception (both #'s even): girl
Breakouts; it is said that little girls steal their mother's beauty: girl
Morning sickness: girl
Carrying (fairly) low: boy
Chinese gender chart: boy

For the record, everyone thinks I'm having a boy except Nycole! *hi Nycole!* Mom says I'm carrying like she carried her boy, and Becca (who is never wrong) said boy right when I told her I was preggo! :)

Take a look at this tale: You can find out the sex by going off of your parent’s kids and the order. If you are the first born, you will have what your mother had but starting with her second child. If you are the middle child, you will have what she said, but starting with the third child. If you are the last child, you will have what your mother had in the exact order. I think this tale only works when the parent’s had three kids.

So, I am the middle child. *If* I have 3 kids, this would give me boy, girl, girl.
Here's another one: If you are really moody, you are having a girl since you have another extra girl hormones in you. Your pregnancy will make you smile and be more happy if you are having a boy because there’s a little penis inside you.'

HAHA!!! :) I don't think I'm more moody...I'm always moody, but not more so. Good thing Andrew doesn't get a say in this! :) Soo....Imma say boy for this one.

Anyhoo, let's move on. I'm not obsessed with finding out. I'm not. Ok, I am. Fine. Whatever.

How far along?: 18 weeks
How big is baby?: bell pepper! 5 1/2 inches long! 7 ounces!
Weight gain?: I'm going to wait till my appointment for the real reading on this one. For now, I'm choosing not to believe what the scale at home is telling me.
Maternity Clothes?: Still kinda stuck in the middle. My maternity pants are kinda big. Regular pants-WAY too small.
Stretch Marks?: Don't want to talk about it.
Sleep?: How is it that we become these co-dependant creatures? I need my Andy in my bed to sleep well. And latley, because of homework, that hasn't been happening.
Best moment this week?: Methinks I felt a short case of baby hiccups!!!
Movement?: Flutters have turned into jabs. But I like it.
Food cravings?: Nothing new.
Aversions?: I watched this show about parasites from uncooked pork. Eeew. But, still chicken.
Gender?: It's either a boy or a girl.
Belly button in or out?: Hairy.
What I miss most?: Same. Sciatica and pimples could go away forever.
What I'm looking forward to?: Buying nursery stuff, naming baby. Milestones: Hiccups! And kung-foo kicks! I forgot to mention that we are officially signed up for Childbirth classes (and shhh! Andrew even said he was excited!)
Other life happenings:

My sweet baby niece turned two and I can't believe it.
