Boy or Girl?

 21 Old Wives' Tale predictions

1) Sleep Position
Pay attention to which way you lay down in bed tonight. If you prefer sleeping on your left side, you’ll have a boy. Right side? You’re pregnant with a girl.-I flip flop...but I always end up on my left side.- BOY

2) Upset Stomach
Little girls aren’t always sweet. Extreme nausea means you are having a daughter.-Neither - I do have nausea, but I wouldn't say its extreme or frequent

3)Soft or Dry Hands
If your hands are dry during pregnancy, you are having a boy; soft—expect a girl. BOY-However I think Arizona's climate may contribute to this as well

4)Food Cravings
Your favorite pregnancy foods may tell you what sex the baby is. If you’re craving citrus while pregnant, you’re having a girl.-BOY

5) Adult Acne
If altering hormones makes your skin break out, expect a girl.-BOY

6) Graceful or Clumsy Pregnancy
If you feel as though you’re gliding through they day, you’ll have a girl. Stumbling? It’s a boy.-GIRL-I haven't noticed an increase in clumsiness...yet

7) Face Weight Gain
If your face gets fuller, it means you’re having a girl. BOY (so far, anyway)

8) Sugar and Spice Food 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.- Neither - I crave both and usually at the same time.... there are chocolate covered pretzels in my pantry!

9) Mood Changes
If you’re experiencing pregnant mood-swings, expect a baby girl to arrive soon. BOY

10) High or Low Pregnant Belly
If you’re carrying the baby low on your stomach, expect a boy. If it’s high, you’re having a girl. Not sure yet

11) Baby Weight
If you’re carrying baby in front, it’s a boy. Is the baby weight spaced all around your middle? It’s a girl.-Not far enough along.

12) Pendulum Test
Dangle a chain with a charm over your palm. If it swings back and forth: boy. In a circle: girl.-I've done this so many times, even before I was pregnant and it was always back and forth - BOY

13) Model Your Hands
“Show me your hands.” If you would hold your hands palms up it’s a girl. Down? You’re having a boy.-BOY

14) 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.- neither -havent been around a little boy

15) Eat Garlic
Guess the baby’s sex by eating garlic. If the smell seeps out of your pores it’s a boy. If there’s no scent it’s a little girl. GIRL (I think)

16) Key to Pregnancy
If you pick up a key by the round end, you’re having a boy. If it’s by the long end? A girl. Not sure... I can't test it now.

17)Even and Odd Numbers
If your age and year of conception are both even or odd, it’s girl. One even, one odd means a boy.- 24, 2011 - BOY

18) Baby’s Heartbeat
If the baby’s heart beats more than 150 times per minute, you’re pregnant with a girl. Less than 150, it’s a boy. Not sure

19) Stress Test
A child tends to be of the same sex as the parent who is less stressed at the time of conception. BOY

20) Dream Meanings
If you dream about having a girl while pregnant, you will wind up having a boy and vice versa. Not sure – I haven't had dreams of either.

21) Breast Size
If your right breast is larger than the left while pregnant, you are having a girl. If the left is larger, it’s a baby boy.-Neither.

Boy-10 Girl-2 Neither-9

So according to this we're having a boy...and I've thought this baby was a boy from the beginning, Dan thinks girl.  Cant wait to find out  :)

8 weeks

Dear Gummy Bear,

        Your Daddy & I got to see you for the first time today! It was such a big day for us both. You are 1 inch long, about the size of a green olive and you were already wiggling around for us to see - Thank you for that. You made our day, we cannot stop talking about how adorable it is that you already have arms and legs! Daddy said you look like a Gummy that is your current nickname. I must have looked at your sonogram pictures a gazillion times and manage to smile each and every time. Daddy made a video, so we keep watching your little wiggle that you did for us and your heartbeat that for now looks like a little flickering dot. We bought a new computer, with a lot of much needed memory space,  because with your picture crazy momma you will have more photos than you can imagine, I hope you're a good sport about it :) We are already madly in love with you and keep wondering if youre a little boy or a little girl. Either way we will be thrilled. I can't wait to shop for you, I already got you an outfit...( dont worry, its green). You are suppose to be born on Mommy & Daddys birthday, and let me tell you that would be by far the best present in the world. Cannot wait to see you again, for now on the screen and of course the day we see you in real life will be the best day ever.


                                                    Here is your first picutre,
prepare yourself because you will have millions more
and yes, its the lock screen on my phone & backround of my lap top :)
