Old Wives Tales
We find our the sex of our little nugget on Tuesday, and I thought it would be fun to do see what the old wives tales predict our baby might be. I've read how some people swear by a few of these (the Chinese calendar in particular), but hey they really just have a 50/50 shot of getting it right.
Boy - 5
Girl - 8
There were plenty of wives tales I didn't include, like carrying the baby high or low, growing out like a basketball or wider. At this point I am far to small to tell any of those, and some of the wives tales I didn't really fall on either end of the spectrum. For instance if you are moody it is likely a girl, happy all the time a boy. I'd say rather than moody, I get a little whiny. Especially when I am hungry and don't know what to eat / we don't have what I want.
Every dream I have had so far the baby has been a girl, I read somewhere that if you dream your baby is a girl it is actually a boy. Paul finally said he thinks it might be a girl, my gut says the same but, but I also feel like we are wrong. I can't imagine waiting to find out until the baby is born to know the gender.
We would love to have at least one girl and one boy before we are done growing our family, so we are just excited to find out what we are having. Girl or boy we are excited either way. As exciting as it is, this is also the scan that they look at every organ to determine if the baby is growing OK, so I am a little nervous at the same time We opted out of any genetic screening, so this will be our first glimpse of our baby's health.
