So I know that pretty much everything is an old wives tale when it comes to predicting the gender of your child in advance, but since I am finding out today (Monday morning) what my little Pooh Bear’s gender is, I thought it would be fun to give all of my wonderful readers all the information that I have regarding my pregnancy, and see what you think I’m having.
Let’s start with the things I knew from day one of finding out I was pregnant. First, I have to mention that a psychicpredicted when I would conceive and she was correct. She also predicted that I would have 2 girls and boy, and this pregnancy would be a girl. Next we have the Chinese calendar. Some people swear by this. The calendar for me predicts a girl based on when I conceived and the age I was when I conceived. So those two signs say girl….
Next we’ll look into the pregnancy thus far. Here the signs are a little muddled. I did not have any real morning sickness, so based on the old wives tales that would point to me having a boy. On the other hand I definitely crave sweet things over salty things, so that would say I’m having a girl. The sono tech and my OB both told me that it’s too early to have the heart rate tell me anything, but at my last appointment it was 150. Based on the wives tale, if the baby’s heart rate is above 140 bpm, it is said that the baby will be a girl. If it is under 140 bpm, then it will be a boy. So based on this the sign points to a girl.
Now for the belly pictures. They say if you are carrying high and round it’s a girl, and low like a basketball it’s a boy. I think I’m all belly so I think this sign points to a boy…
Here’s some pictures so you can guess for yourself!
So all you experts out there I’m ready to hear what you think! Is Pooh Bear a Boy or a Girl??!!!
I am guessing it is a GIRL! I am going with a 95% liklihood too.
I think you’re carrying high – it’s a girl! 🙂
I think Girl too! =)
I say GIRL! 🙂
i voted girl…. on “bethenny getting married” tonight she went to register for baby stuff and they did this “test” on her to see what she was having. they said you thread a needle and have someone hold the needle above your belly while you lay on the bed. If the needle moves forward and back its said to be a boy. if it moves in a circle then its a girl. She did it and it moved in a circle, we know from reading people that she indeed had a girl!! Give it a try and see what happens!
Guessing it is a BOY :)!
I just voted! Everybody so far think it’s a girl, so she must be 🙂
I have only one child, but I had a feeling since very beginning that it’s a boy. And he is! Just believe your inner voice 🙂
Based on all the ‘evidence’ you’ve gathered and what your own intuition seems to tell you, I’m going with a girl too. Excited to find out!
I’m playing devils advocate and saying a BOY!
Lol. All my stuff is pointing to boy, but that whole list of symptoms says girl, but that’s the only thing that says it. I was carrying high until week 22 where everything got lower. Now it’s just kinda torpedo shaped, hahahahaha.
I’m not sure if you knew but there was a book written last year that is all about myths and superstitions in pregnancy and it is broken down into different categories.
Hands Off My Belly! The Pregnant Woman’s Survival Guide to Myths Mothers and Moods is a fun book written by married OB-GYNs and has over one hundred myths about conception, placentas, delivery, labor, miscarriage, epidurals and many more things. It is a Mom’s Choice Award gold recipient and an Arizona Book Publisher’s Glyph Award winner. You can find it a brick and mortar stores or on Amazon and Barnes and Noble, Borders so check it out.
So, I would say girl b/c both my chinese gender predicted girl…. but I was sooooooooooooo sooooooooo sooooooo sick with both of them and you have no morning (or mid day or night) sickness that I am leaning towards Boy. Plus, the fact that there have been so many girls lately- it is time for some Boys (even though I am impartial to girls- hehe)!!! Someone just told me yesterday the string on top of your belly using a weight at the end and depending on if the string moves cloclkwise or counterclockwise- it is a boy or girl….. Have you tried that??? Can’t wait until Monday- will you be posting???
I haven’t been around enough pregnant women to know any of the “rules”…so my complete guess is girl!
So happy for you to find out!
It’s totally going to be a girl. You know why…because Evan needs to soften up a bit and nothing does that better than Daddy’s little girl! She’ll have him wrapped around her little pinkie! Can’t wait to find out!
