Our 20-week anatomy ultrasound is tomorrow and I’m excited (which is to be expected, of course). For our previous 2 pregnancies, we asked the ultrasound tech to write the sex of the baby in an envelope, then Jeff & I opened it up together, later. This time, we’ll be doing something different.
This time, because it’s only 2 days before Thanksgiving, we’re going to do a Mini Gender Reveal with family. The tech will still write the gender in an envelope, so that we don’t find out right away. But this time, I’ll get the results to a cake decorator (without me knowing) and she’ll bake a typical gender reveal cake.
Then on Thanksgiving, we’ll be celebrating with my side of the family and we’ll cut the cake to find out! I haven’t ever been to a gender reveal party, but I like the idea of a mini reveal with family.
So…what will it be? Boy or Girl?
I’d love to have another boy. They’re fun! And how fun would it be to have 3 boys close in age, growing up together? So fun!
I’d love to have a girl. This might be our last child (you never know) and I think it’d be great to have the experience of having a daughter. So fun!
Old Wives’ Tales?
How you carry says Girl since I’m carrying high. (But I’ve carried high in my last 2 pregnancies. Both times with boys. I think that’s just how I am.)
Heart rate says Girl since the heartbeats have all been above 140. (But, again, both pregnancies were with boys and they were always above 140.)
Cravings says Boy since I’m craving salty instead of sweets. (This is the way I was in the last 2 pregnancies too. I am baking sweets a lot, but I’m not eating many of them. Have the munchies at night? Give me some Chex Mix.)
Acne says Boy since I don’t really have any (girls will steal your beauty…apparently)
Cold Feet says Boy since I have do have cold feet. You know, when it’s cold outside.
Wedding Ring Swing says Girl since holding it over my belly on a string makes it swing back and forth instead of in a circle.
Chinese Birth Chart says Girl.
Mayan Birth Chart says Girl.
Husband Gaining Weight Theory says Boy since my husband isn’t really gaining weight either (in fact, he’s slowly losing weight — but that’s due to his cheapness at eating lunch out and giving up soda/pop)
Morning Sickness Theory says Boy since I haven’t had any.
Girl Indicators: 5. Boy Indicators: 5 So there’s a 50/50 shot at being right!
