Boy or Girl?

 Happy Monday! I have never in my life been so excited for it to be Monday.....because today we find out if baby "R" is a boy or a girl! We are off to the doctor this morning and can't wait! A few of you suggested I run through the "old wives tales" about gender prediction just for fun....so here we go!

 1. Chinese gender chart says: Girl
2. Are you eating more(boy) or sick/nauseated (girl)?: Boy
3. Lots of morning sickness (girl), or not too sick (boy)?: Boy
4. Do you crave sweet foods (girl) or salty (boy)?: Both!
5. Is your skin clear (boy) or do you have breakouts (girl)?: Girl
6. Is the heartbeat high (girl) or low (boy)?: Girl
7. Have you been more clumsy (boy) or graceful (girl)?: Boy
8. Has your husband put on sympathy weight (girl) or not (boy): Boy
9. Consider your age at conception and the year of conception. If both are even or both are odd (girl). If one is even and one is odd (boy): Boy
10. My "mother's intuition" says: I have no clue! Most of my pregnancy I thought Boy, and then for a a few weeks Girl, but now I'm not so sure. If I had to guess I'd say Boy
11. The husband's "father's intuition" says: Boy
12. My mom says: Girl
13. Mother-in-law says: Girl
14. Father-in-law says: Boy
15. Sister-in-law says: Boy
16. Best friend says: Boy

What do you think? Will we be eating the pink cupcake or the blue? We'll see who's right in my post tomorrow. But if you follow me on instagram, I might just spill the beans a little early! You can find me at: girlintheredshoes

Ashley said...

I vote girl, only because I firmly believe I am having a boy haha!
Can't wait to hear the announcement - fingers crossed baby R cooperates for the tech ;-)

Carolyn said...

OMG! I can't wait to find out! HAHA I have to say I'm hoping to see the pink cupcake get eaten!!

Just a Jersey Girl said...

I say girl, but 99% of the time I am wrong LOL so it's probably a boy. Can't wait to see! I requested you on instagram (justajerseygirl)

Caty said...

SO stinkin' excited for you guys!!! Cannot wait to hear the announcement!

I say go with your gut instinct: BOY!

When I was pregnant with my daughter...I had the HUGEST feeling she was a girl, then when we got to the ultrasound to find out the sex, for some reason I felt the baby was a boy, but my instincts were correct! haha!

Ashley said...

yay! exciting! cant wait to find out!

KatiePerk said...

Can't wait to hear! It was such a fun day when we found out with our Baby Girl.

Stacie said...

Crazy! I made cupcakes that looked exactly like that to tell our parents on Labor day. Exact same sprinkles and everything. I just found you on Instagram, so I hope to find out soon. Besides the birth, it was the most exciting day of my life! If they say its a girl, make sure to get it checked again at a later date to make sure. I know too many people who have had boys but planned for girls:o)
