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.
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!
