Boy or Girl?

Monday is when Adam and I will find out if the little nugget is a boy or girl! I found this little survey thingy-ma-jig on iVillage so I thought I would do it! The signs/symptoms I have/had I will highlight with a different color!

It's a boy if:

  • You didn't experience morning sickness in early pregnancy.

  • Your baby's heart rate is less than 140 beats per minute.

  • You are carrying the extra weight out front.

  • Your belly looks like a basketball.

    • You are carrying low.

  • You are craving salty or sour foods.

  • You are craving protein -- meats and cheese.

  • Your feet are colder than they were before pregnancy.

  • The hair on your legs has grown faster during pregnancy.

  • Your hands are very dry.

  • Your pillow faces north when you sleep.

  • Dad-to-be is gaining weight right along with you.

  • Pregnancy has you looking better than ever.

  • Your urine is bright yellow in color.

  • Your nose is spreading.

  • You hang your wedding ring over your belly and it moves in circles.

  • You are having headaches.

  • You add your age at the time of conception and the number
  •  for the month you conceived and the sum is an even number.

It's a girl if:

  • You had morning sickness early in pregnancy.

  • Your baby's heart rate is at least 140 beats per minute.

  • You are carrying the weight in your hips and rear.

      • Your hair develops red highlights.

  • You are carrying high.

  • Your belly looks like a watermelon.

  • You are craving sweets.

  • You are craving fruit.

  • You crave orange juice.

  • You don't look quite as good as normal during pregnancy.

  • You are moodier than usual during pregnanc
    • y.

  • Your face breaks out more than usual.

  • You refuse to eat the heel of a loaf of bread.

  • Your breasts have really blossomed!

  • Your pillow faces south when you sleep.

  • Your urine is a dull yellow color.

  • You hang your wedding ring over your belly and it moves from side

  • You add your age at the time of conception and the number 
    • for the month you conceived and the sum is an odd number.

Boy- 5 Girl- 8

Hmm...inneresting.  I still think it's  a boy though.  I asked Adam last night what he thought it was and he jumped up and said,"BOY!!!"  Then I said,"No, really, what do you think it is?" (Because I know when he's not telling the truth!) and he sat down and said,"A girl."  Ummm, 'scuse me, where's the excitement? Rude!

So, he thinks girl, I think boy.  We shall see! My appointment is at 2:30, which means by 3:30 you will be able to find my Mom and I at the mall doing some damage in Baby Gap! 


  1. I hope that he or she will spread those tiny legs for you. Drink some caffeine for good measure!

  2. The ring test in your survey is wrong! Circle is a girl and side to side is a boy! Looks like you can add one more to the girl column!!!!
