It's A...

Well we don't know yet, but we'd love to hear your opinion. Vote whether you think #2 is a boy or a girl. I know there are a lot of you out there that read and don't comment, but it's really easy to vote so just do it (you don't need a google account).

And in case you subscribe to old wive's tales here's where we stand with this pregnancy.

Heart Beat
140+ beats per minute = a girl, below 140 bpm = a boy
At 16 weeks the heart beat was 142. Girl
However, Sawyer's heartbeat was always significantly over 140.

Breaking Out
Breaking out during pregnancy=girl, smooth skin=boy
During Sawyer's pregnancy I had baby soft skin, but this time I've been breaking out like crazy though it has improved since the 1st trimester. Girl

Sweet & Sour
Craving ice cream or citrus = girl while craving salty or sour foods =boy.
Truth be told I always crave sweets whether pregnant or not. This time around I have been wanting more fruity sweets than chocolate, which is a little unusual for me. Maybe that's just because Starbursts came out with Fave"Reds" or maybe it's a Girl
Sidenote: if you haven't tried the Starburst Fave"reds" run don't walk to your nearest convenience store. It's the greatest concept ever a package of Starbursts with only the red and pink flavors!

Sick = girl, little or no sickness = boy
I was never sick with Sawyer, however during the 1st trimester of this pregnancy the nauseous feeling was there all the time though I am feeling completely better now. Girl

Even or Odd
Determine the mother's age at conception and the year of conception. If both are even or odd it's a girl. If one's even and one's odd, it's a boy.
27 and 2010 Boy

We find out the gender March 25th (hopefully)! I'll let you all know then. In fact for those of you living in Canton we may do a gender reveal party because I think it might be fun and it will be close to spring so we might have the 1st BBQ of the season.


  1. Gurrrrlllll!!! I've got the funniest gender reveal story to tell you the next time I see you. Remind me!

  2. I would say girl, since you were so sick this time around. (That's the way I was with Eve and not with the boys.) But having two boys close in age would be fun too.

  3. I thought it was a girl without the above info. I actually would be shocked if it was a boy. As for some of the above:

    Heart Beat: for G did point to a girl
    Skin: non problems
    Sweet & Sour: I craved sour like crazy
    Sickness: none ever
    Both Even: Girl

    but to the wives tales all signs point to a girl for me so maybe they are no to far off.

  4. I would guess girl too, the skin and sickness old wives tales seemed true for me also, BUT I have a friend who had two totally opposite pregnancies and both were girls, so that always makes me check myself-- there's really no way to predict based on symptoms (and the how you carry ones and the number/age ones just make me laugh as that makes no sense to me). So, while I think everything points to "girl", I usually just go with an intuition guess and for Luke and I both, we are gonna say "boy" :) (Luke's words were, it would serve Kyle right, LOL)
