WHW {#70}: Blue or Pink?

For this week's What's Hap-"Pinning", I'm talking about finding out the baby's gender!


don't mind our tree slightly leaning--it's been fixed since haha
MG and I have our anatomy scan on Friday which involves looking over everything, including the heart, brain etc, to make sure everything looks ok--so we'll be hoping for good news about a healthy baby for sure!

In addition to that, we'll also get to find out the gender. We had planned to do a reveal with our family, and might still do that...but we might find out before hand because I'm not sure either of us can wait for another 2 weeks!

Since we've gotten pregnant, people have told us their thoughts on boy versus girl and it overwhelmingly seems like people think girl. I, myself, have felt like it was a girl from the beginning without any real reason why. So I thought I'd share some old wive's tales and then see what you guys think: Blue or Pink?

Baby's heartbeat: over 140 bpm (girl)

Moodiness: no more than usual (boy)

Morning Sickness: None (boy)

Acne while pregnant: Yes (girl)

Cravings: sweet, more than usual (girl)

Chinese Gender Chart: boy 

Dream of the sex of the baby/means the opposite sex of what you dreamed: only one so far, and it was a boy (girl)

Clumsy/Graceful: I guess I'd say I've had a few more clumsy moments than normal, usually trying to get dressed lol (boy)

Dad gaining weight? No (boy)

Headaches: Yes (boy)

Feet colder now? No (girl)

What the mom thinks: girl

Baby Names: when you can only think of/agree only on gender of names: girl

Side you prefer to rest on: left (boy)

The ring test: back and forth (girl)

So basically, it's really close, with girl coming out ahead just a smidge.

Now I want to know what you guys think? Blue or Pink??

Blue or Pink

Boy!
Girl!

Link up with Jessi and I below to share what's hap-"pinning" with you!

  2. I wouldn't pay attention to any of those. I had major morning sickness with my son, so I don't think that one is true at all. I can't wait to find out what you are having and I pray that everything looks perfect! Good luck!

  17. Prayers for a healthy ultrasound! Our anatomy scan is one of my favorite memories so far in my pregnancy, not only because our girl got a clean bill of health, but it was the first time that my husband had a chance to really see that a baby is on the way - he may have said "That's crazy!" one or ten times as the tech talked us through what we were seeing and how much Little Miss was moving around. Enjoy every second of it!

    Also, for what it's worth, we found out the baby's sex a few weeks before we shared with the rest of our family, and I would HIGHLY recommend it. I knew that I would be emotional either way, so it was nice and comforting to have that private moment with my husband, and to have that special secret just between us for a few weeks :)

  22. I'm voting for a boy, but the heartbeat test is rarely wrong, so it's looking like it's a girl! I can't wait to hear! And either way I know you guys will be so thankful!
