A look into what we ordinarily do...sometimes not that ordinary.

Vote for a Boy or Girl!

This week is the much anticipated ultra sound, where hopefully my little boy will show his stuff, or my little girl will show what she's missing.

I have been anxious (to put it lightly) to find out and get rockin on the nursery and online shopping so I have heard and tried just about every superstitious method of finding out.

Here are the results from a few:

According to Candi's boyfriend's family's method a dangling ring over my wrist reveals that I am having a girl.

Whereas, my R.S. pres had me (and girls at work, and my yw) hunting for an ant to reveal that I was having a boy.

My dad's "intuition" which has been right 6/7 with his own kids and 4/4 with the grandkids, tells him I am having a boy.

An online quiz I took that asked a series of questions that seemed very irrelevant revealed I was having a girl.

Here's some of the things some of my clients have told me will help decipher:

1. I am "carrying high".

2. I crave sours not sweets (if you want to call them cravings).

3. My husband has more sisters than brothers.

4. My hair is growing faster than usual.

5. My eyelashes aren't falling out.

So I am nowhere near having a better idea of what I am having than I was when I started testing out these wild ideas, I guess I will just have to wait and see what kind of peep show we get at the doc's office.

In the meantime, share any new ideas you guys have that will reveal it all....and vote on the poll.


  1. I voted Girl, but that could be because I think that is what I am having. But whatever the lord gives us is a blessing! You better call me as soon as you know! I cannot wait to know! I have to wait 4 more weeks to know! cannot wait!

  2. WHAT you are going to have a baby! I'm so happy for you! Ahh I hope you have a little girl. I have so much stuff I could give you. This is so fun. We have to get togehter. I want to see how cute you are. Ahhhh I'm so excited for you! Yeah!!!!!

  3. None of it works, but it is fun testing out all the old wives' tales. How exciting!!! I guess boy.

  4. Oh no, if dad is right. I am doomed! If you have a boy, then by the time I have kids, I am determined to have boys. Emma: 3 boys, if you have kids boys... I need a girl!!

    I hope dad is wrong on this one!
    I want a GIRL! Lina

  5. I love that you are posting pics of you... Cec, you will be the cutest little prego person ever. I hope you get a little girl. My boys do not sleep and are a little crazy- but Tatum is an angel. Good Luck

  6. Someone told me that whatever you want, you get the opposite. I say boy. Good luck! I'm 25 weeks. It's flying by and I still barely believe I have a mini-human inside me. Now I'm getting scared/excited about labor. Ah!

  7. Yeah a little girl I knew it! Hope I didn't give it away before you told other people. Congrats
