19 Weeks

Today marks 19 weeks!  The first couple months seemed to drag on, but now time is flying by!  I can't believe we are already almost half-way there!  Here is my latest bump/pudge picture.
I am still feeling great and I think that I am starting to feel some movement.  It is very sporadic at this time, but I don't think it can be anything else.  I can't wait for it to become more frequent!

We have our anatomy scan tomorrow and are very excited to see this little one and find out if it's a boy or girl.  Here are how some of the old wives tales predict it.  I have left out any that don't lean towards a specific gender.

Heart rate: It was 105 at my dating ultrasound, but was 150-160 at my last two appointments.  Heart rate over 140 is supposed to indicate: GIRL.

Nausea: Just like with Parker, I haven't had any nausea. This points to: BOY

Leg hair: My leg hair seems to be growing more than normal.  This indicates higher testosterone levels and: BOY.

Husband's siblings: He has only sisters, which can mean that the X sperm are better swimmers, therefore: GIRL.

Temperature of feet:  My feet have been feeling colder since becoming pregnant.  This could be because winter is coming or could indicate: BOY.

Food Cravings: I am not sure if I have been craving meat and cheese more because I can eat more (low carb) or because I am really craving it.  This points to: BOY.

Chinese gender calendar:  There are many variations of this calendar.  After going through the first page of Google results (not including ones I had to provide and email for) it was tied at 3-3.  I did the first one on page two and GIRL took the lead.

BOY just barely edges out GIRL, but we will find out for sure soon!


  1. You look great mama!!
    I'm going to predict girl because most of the people I know that are due when you are will be having girls. Can't wait to find out!

    1. Thanks! I will be honest that I am hoping for a boy, but will be happy no matter what! Can't wait to find out tomorrow. So far I am not tempted to open the envelope!
