GIRL or BOY?!

I have some exciting news... we are finding out the gender of baby #2 sooner than planned! I thought we would have to wait for our anatomy ultrasound to find out what we are having, but my awesome doctor checks out the baby at each appointment with a quick ultrasound. So different than when I was pregnant with Mia, and I am not complainin'! Anyway, I thought it would be fun to see what everyone else is guessing! So tell me, GIRL or BOY?!

Oh hi Mia! Bracelets c/o Poppy Lane and Co

Since I don't really have a bump to show off (which is what many people base there guess off of) I thought it would be fun to share what I should be having based off of old wive's tales (and yes, I totally got this idea from my sister in law! So fun that our babies are going to be so close in age! These sweet cousins will be the best of friends!)

Ancient Chinese Birth Chart: The chart says GIRL!

How I Carry Baby: They say that if you're carrying high it's a girl, carrying low is a boy. Again, since I'm not showing yet, it also mentions that if you carry in front you've got a boy, if your belly grows horizontally you've got a girl. So far my body is following the same growth pattern that it did with Mia, but I didn't grow horizontally with her, I carried in front (if that helps with anyone basing off of the bump shape) So if I continue to carry in front the way I did with Mia this should be a BOY (but it would have been wrong with Mia!)

Acne: Legends say that if you're having a girl, she'll still your beauty. Acne (and other skin blemishes) are signs of a girl. I'm not one that is blessed with beautiful, glowing skin while pregnant. I experienced acne the first half of my pregnancy with Mia and I'm experiencing it again so GIRL!

Cravings: Sweets = girl. Salty and sour = boy. My sweet tooth is out of control this pregnancy (although I couldn't stand the thought of sweets during my first trimester with Mia) I literally dream night and day about chocolate cake, ice cream, donuts, etc so GIRL!

Husband: I couldn't help but pull Eric into this one since this pregnancy IS half his fault ;) They say that if my spouse indulges in my pregnancy cravings as well, and adds on a little sympathy weight, we should expect a girl. Eric has been hitting the gym hard and taking charge of his diet so BOY!
Funny story though- while pregnant with Mia we would rent a redbox and Eric would go grab blizzards from Dairy Queen to enjoy during the movie. He gained some weight during my pregnancy but I thought it was from the stress of his job. He just recently told me that when he got our blizzards, he also ordered a large ice cream cone and ate it on his drive back home... BUT NEVER TOLD ME! Little stinker, HA!

Morning Sickness: If you experience morning sickness, especially during the first trimester, it means pinkl. If you sail through the pregnancy with nary an upset stomach, it's blue all the way... so BOY! (But I didn't have morning sickness with Mia as well. Thank heavens!)

Moodiness: If you are really moody, expect a girl. All smiles and happy, expect a boy. Let's just say that I kind of lost my mind a couple of times (SO moody) before I found out I was pregnant. Now that I know my hormones are crazy right now, I really try to keep myself in check but I am easily irritated, so GIRL!

Baby Names: It is said that when you can only think of specific names for girl or boy, you will have that particular baby... so BOY! (This one rings true with Mia's pregnancy as well.)

I can't wait to see what you all think, and I'm so excited to share when we find out if we are having a GIRL or BOY!

It sounds like if you have any negative symptoms it means girl! And a happy, easy pregnancy means boy. I don't have a guess because really, none of this stuff is actually truthful. But so funny about the ice cream cone!!

Jenn said...

I think it's a boy based on how early your doctor is able to tell you the gender (that happened with my friend). But, a boy or girl would be wonderful!!!! :)

Tara said...

Hmmm.... BOY just because you can only think of boy names. That was true for me last time I was pregnant too! Can't wait to hear! :)

Laynah said...

I WANT you to have a boy but I have a feeling shes another little girl!

Christy said...

Some of those things are definitely not always accurate, as you already know! I craved sweets, had bad acne during 1st trimester, was nauseated through 1st trimester...had a BOY! :) I also had insane heartburn so I was thinking he would have a lot of hair and my little 18 month old toddler still barely has any hair! LOL! :) Idk what you're having, but I'm super excited to find out! I admit, I'm a little biased in thinking boys are the BEST!!

Emily said...

I say girl but I'm like 0/4 in guessing the right sex in the past--I love how sneaky guys can be sometimes-Dustin would totally do the same thing:)

Julie said...

Everyone has been having girls this year so I say girl!

Mandie said...

I'm gonna say boy & I'm pretty good on gender guesses. Both times that my best friend was pregnant, I had the genders right. She was even convinced that her first child was gonna be a boy & I told her "nope, it's a girl for sure". I don't know why I thought that, I just had a feeling & I was right. :)

I'm guessing GIRL! :) I love this idea for a post ;)

Caroline At Windy City Chic said...

See to me it seems like everyone is either pregnant with a boy, or has had a boy. I seriously have one friend who just had a girl. I say that it can go either way though! So excited to find out too!!! :-)

Nicole @ Haute Runner said...

So exciting to find out! You look great!!!

I'm guessing boy. I'm usually wrong so it's probably a girl! Haha!

Brittany said...

I have no idea why, but I'm thinking Mia will have a little sister!

Elizabeth Birenbaum said...

Well your answers are no help lol. Now I am just more confused! Thankfully with Mason I didn't have morning sickness either. THANK HEAVENS because when I would feel even the slightest bit sick, I would be so miserable lol. I'm such a wuss. I want to guess boy but I'm gonna go with girl because I think Mia and a little sister would be soooooooo cute!

Jessie said...

I'm horrible at this. I always get it wrong... unless you've dreamed about your little one! I say GIRL. Just votin'.

Pamela {Sequins and Sea Breezes} said...

EEK!!!! I seriously can't wait to hear what you're having!!! But it sounds like if all the old wives tails are correct, you're having a girl for sure! For some reason I kinda see Mia having a little sister but we'll see!!!

EEK - So exciting! I can't wait to see what you're little bundle of joy is! I'm betting it's a sister for Miss Mia :)

Lindsey said...

Both pregnancies we waited until their birthday to find out if they were a boy or a girl. Both of my pregnancies were practically identical. I have one boy and one girl. =P

But I think you're going to have a boy. One of each is so much fun ;)

Lindsey said...

I also was sure that Liam was a girl and sure that Emery was a boy and I was wrong both times. So momma doesn't always know best. =P
