Since the big ultrasound where we'll find out the sex of the baby is merely 13 days away, I thought it would be fun to add a poll. :::points to the right:::
Some information that may sway you one way or the other:
Carrying: It seems low (boy) but it's hard to tell because I'm tall and it's so early.
Heart Rate: Has been consistently in the 140's to 150's, the old wives say under 140 is boy
Cravings: mostly sweet stuff, again the old wives say girl
M's weight gain: Not sure, he lost a lot of weight right around the time I got pregnant, and now seems to have put some of it back on, if M gains weight during my pregnancy they say girl, but I don't know if this counts
Face shape: a few people have told me it looks like I've lost weight in my face, a not round face during pregnancy is a boy
Acne: my face has cleared up considerably since the 1st trimester, the old bags say boy
Age: age at conception 26, year of conception 2010, both even the Mayans say girl
Dry Hands: boy, but my hands are always dry...
Morning Sickness: I had some for about 6 weeks, I would say moderate, the old wives say bad m/s indicates a girl
Chinese Gender Predictor: Boy
There are also a couple that involve me mixing some of my urine with Drain-O or using it to water seeds to see which grow. I think I'm going to skip those ;) I will definitely post as soon as we get home on the 19th!
Here's the belly shot (don't laugh) - I don't often get to see myself from this perspective and it looks a lot bigger than I thought!
16 weeks 5 days
