Today is the day (we hope) that our little bean shows us whether it is a boy or girl!
As of today I am 16 weeks and 4 days pregnant. My friend Elizabeth (who is also expecting!) warned me...last year, three of her friends did gender scans around 16 weeks and ALL were wrong. People, that gives me some anxiety!
What will I be choosing?
The VAST majority of people who offer their opinion say they suspect girl and this has been the case from day 1! I can probably name a handful of people who have been Team Boy. We shall see...
Also from Day 1, people have asked "Are you hoping for a boy or a girl?"
It took a long time to get to this point...do you really think we care?! I honestly have absolutely no preference as to whether we have a little Jack or a little Jill (not their real names, ha). If I'm leaning towards one more than the other, it is only because I do not want to be wrong...hey, I'm just being honest :P
After Steph made a cute little chart, well....this time I did copy...sorry Stephanie!
I have a couple of friends for whom the Chinese calendar was wrong....eek! I chose the "left" sleeping side but honestly, it's kinda both. I chose "salty" cravings because even though I haven't really had true food-specific cravings, I have not craved sweets any more than usual and what I have craved has been an actual cooked meal (which tends to be more salty than sweet). The only thing that I really put any "weight" on there is the intuition....from about 7 or 8 weeks, I've just had a "boy" feeling. It scares me to think I could be wrong about that, like am I not bonding well? If I'm wrong, that's okay, I just want this baby to be healthy no matter what kind of parts they are born with :)
Once we know and are ready to share....I'll spill the beans for you! ;)
