Let’s play a little game called Guess the Blue Babies’ Gender! I have an ultrasound today (16w2d) and next Friday at 18 weeks. I have been dying to know the gender from the beginning, so at this point, the suspense is pretty much sending me into daily strokes. In the spirit of seeing how accurate the old wives’ tales are, I thought it would be fun to see what all of you think. Remember they are identical, so it will be two boys or two girls.
Here’s the info to help you form your scientific hypothesis:
How I’m carrying them:
Heart Rates: Usually around 155 and 158
All of our family members think girls.
I’ve had two dreams about pregnancy, and both times the baby was a girl.
I haven’t had any super strong cravings, but generally savory things have sounded better than sweet things.
I had wretchedly terrible morning sickness and still have some for that matter.
I’ve had more skin breakouts than what I normally do, but it hasn’t been as bad as say, 7th grade.
The ring on the necklace test came out boy.
Chinese gender chart says girl.
The Mayan Even and Odd test: Age at conception -30 (even). Year of conception – 2012 (even). Since both numbers are even = girls
Neither DH nor I don’t have a strong “gut feeling” either way, but I find myself only planning girl names, girl nurseries, girl clothes, etc.
So what do you think? Are we having girls or boys? Were the old wives’ tales right for you?
