Pink or Blue?

This week marks the start of my 2nd trimester!  I cannot believe how quickly the weeks are flying by.  Today I'm headed back to the doctor for a check up.  

This time next month we'll find out if little Skeeter is a he or a she!

What better time to start a vote?!

I figure in fairness, I should give you the facts:
  • Up until recently, I've been sure it's a girl.  Now, I'm not so sure.
  • I have had 4 or 5 dreams that it's a boy.  In one of the dreams, I had the baby and then misplaced him in the hospital.  I actually looked under the bed.  As if the baby could've crawled under there.
  • I had another dream that I ate all the ice cream in the world and became the fattest pregnant woman ever.
  • My cravings have been pizza, Sour Patch Kids, cinnamon rolls and obviously no meat.
  • I'm not showing yet, but I have a pooch.
  • I had frequent morning sickness in the first trimester.  And exhaustion.  

I added a poll on the side of my blog, so chime in!

Also, comment with any old wives tales you've used to determine gender!  I want to try them.

I was told that being sick meant it was a girl... also, when I went to the doctor, L had a very fast heartbeat, which is also associated with having a girl! xoxo

I am just going to pretend like I know anything about this subject and take an "educated" guess....it's a girl!

Jessica said...

I have no clue, so let's go with boy. Why? It was different than the first two commenters :P

Jennifer said...

I think ours is a boy but DH thinks it's a girl. I kind of hope I am right :)

My coworker says to check the chinese calendar. You put in your age and the month the baby is due and it will tell you boy or girl!

Rach said...

I craved pizza and anything that contained sugar while I was pregnant and I had a girl. My guess is you will too!

I just voted and it's half and half right now :P

I am a good baby gender guesser. My besties are both pregnant and I totally guessed theirs correctly.

I think you're going to be having a baby boy :)

Sarah E. said...

P.S. Chinese Gender Chart doesn't always work...it was wrong for my husband (his mom checked out all her kids) and it was wrong for my daughter.

I never had morning sickness and I have super low blood pressure. I don't think the baby's heartbeat was fast. And I'm having a girl. I had to google the chinese calendar Tara mentioned and it predicted me correctly. Hmm..... I don't remember how old you are so I can't creep for you. LOL. I am going to guess boy because you've been sick and tired and I wasn't. Ha.

Meg O. said...

Oh, I forgot to mention - we did the needle and thread thingie. One time it said I was having a boy, but all the other times it predicted girl. YouTube it.

Jessica Brown said...

I voted girl! You're going to be a gorgeous pregnant lady!!

whit said...

I've heard if you crave spicy, you'll have a boy...if you crave sweet, you'll have a girl. Don't know how accurate that is...based on cinnamon rolls I will guess girl!

Lindsey @ Running Down A Dream said...

I voted boy - we'll see :)

Katie said...

I vote boy. For no reason other than everyone else I know is having a girl, and we need more boys! Hahaha

Katie said...

I voted girl! No idea why. Haha. But I think i tipped the poll in that direction!

Ashley Slater said...

i voted! youe should check out saffakates blog (an african in new york) and see all the "tests" she posted about how you can determine if you are having a boy or girl! so fun!

xo,
ashley

I've heard the same thing about craving sweet things and having a girl. Plus my Mom said that when she was pregnant with me and my sister she had horrible morning sickness. Can't wait to find out what you're having! xx

Heather said...

Check out the Chinese predictor on the Bump (even though it was wrong for me), the string/needle trick (was right!), if the heart beat is over 150 a girl, below a boy (also right for me!, and I craved sweets with my girl too but I was convinced I was having a boy until she was born!

Katie said...

Whoa, I was totally going to do a wives tales post tonight in honor of our anatomy scan tomorrow! :)
I think I'm going to guess girl for you! No reason really except that was your first instinct.
Here's to hoping the 2nd tri brings you less puking!

Jessica Renee said...

None of the predictors I tried were correct so I say go with your gut feeling! I kept thinking girl, dreaming boy but STILL thought girl and I was right! I can't wait for y'all to find out!

Jessica Renee said...

Oh yeah and everyone kept saying that because I WASN'T sick at all that it was a boy. So wrong!

Lil' Woman said...

I vote boy : )

Christina said...

Pink!

Crazy Shenanigans-JMO said...

Wiz said...

My mother's intuition was right both times so I say girl!
