Take a guess

We’re on our way now for our ultrasound, and hopefully we’ll find out if we’re having a boy or a girl. I figured I’d give you all a chance to take a guess just for fun!

Here are some stats:

  • I’ve been nauseated pretty much non-stop since about 6 weeks, but that probably doesn’t mean anything because my mom and two of my three sisters battled prolonged morning sickness with all of their pregnancies, both boys and girls.
  • Heartburn started early — I think around 10 weeks? It’s pretty severe, and it seems like pretty much anything I eat causes it.
  • I started showing early at about 12 weeks, and I’m carrying low so far.
  • My hair and skin are a mess. Frizzy hair, dry skin. But this also may have more to do with my nausea/fatigue than it does the baby. I just don’t have the energy to primp like I used to.
  • My cravings have been all over the place, but due to the nausea, they’ve been very limited. The biggest thing has been fruit (peaches especially) and anything with cheese.
  • In the beginning, I was sure it was a boy. But as we get closer to the ultrasound date, I’m less sure. After all, there’s a 50/50 chance!

So I guess I didn’t give you much information, but it’s really all guessing at this point anyway, right. My official guess is that it’s a boy. Even though I’m less sure than I was in the beginning, I still just have a feeling. Tony thinks it’s a girl, but I think he’s just being contentious because I’ve been so adamant that it’s a boy. :)

Either way, wish us luck for a healthy baby who’s not so shy that we can’t tell.

    Your pregnancy sounds exactly like mine….20 years ago! I had a bouncing baby boy. Twenty years later, he is all grown and still the apple of my eye! BTW…my cravings were Doritos and peach ice cream!

    Congratulations and Blessings,

    I’ve got a “boy” feeling for you, but that’s just a guess. We won’t find out for another month. Good luck on having a cooperative baby!

    My vote is girl…all my friends that have girls seem to have much more difficult pregnancies. I usually tend to be wrong about these things though, so you’re probably having a boy after all! Whatever you’re having, I wish you a happy, healthy pregnancy and delivery!
