I am 19 weeks pregnant, and my ultrasound is one week from today (Thursday, Sept. 25th). We are pretty excited! I'm not sure that my blog still gets a lot of traffic, but I thought it would be fun to do a boy/girl poll before the ultrasound, since we hope to be able to find out.
Now, usually I need a little something to go on when I'm guessing. I don't put much stock in the old wives' tales. But--heh--it's still fun to guess.
First of all, there's the old wives' tale about carrying. Is it carrying high for a boy? Or is that a girl? I don't remember. I decided to put together some images from previous pregnancies...I had to work with what I could find, so it's not the best. They are relatively around the same time period...
Then there's the heart rate theory. Apparently if it's faster it's a girl, slower for a boy. I have plenty of data to bash that one, but here you go:
At 12 weeks
Eden (girl): 150-156
Malachi (boy): 149-154
Tirzah (girl): 160
Obi (boy): 150
Baby #10: 158
At 16-ish weeks
Baby #10: 147
There is the theory about morning sickness, but I can't remember if it's supposed to be sicker with a boy or with a girl? Oh well...skip that...I took plenty of zofran and unisom to get me through. I didn't want to feel sick, so I tried very hard not to. I don't usually get zofran, but I specifically asked for it since I was traveling to Nicaragua. I really wanted to have things under control.
I've been craving sweets, besides the small bit of time that I would have gone crazy for some onion rings and fried fish.
Nothing else that I can think of. Please vote in the sidebar on the right!
