What are you having?

Doesn’t that question sound better coming from a waitress then your family {and total strangers}?

What are you having? As if I am ordering up a cheeseburger and fries {drool}.

As much as everyone else is impatient and eager to know what “we are having,”  I am about 3 times as impatient and eager. I even called this week to make my 20 week Anatomy Scan. When they told me that the calendar wasn’t up yet, I had to restrain myself from screaming into the phone. I have to wait 2 more weeks to make the appointment. If I can’t know now whether we are having a boy or a girl, I need to at least know when I’ll know.

Until then, I decided to pull out some old wives’ tales and tricks {and some modern day “rip-offs”} to at least get an inkling.

1. Chinese Gender Chart ~ BOY


2. Heart rate ~ GIRL

The old wives’ tale says that if the baby’s heart rate is over 140 bpm, it’s a girl. Baby G’s heart rate on Friday was 162 bpm. Score one for Girl! 

3. Mayan Gender Prediction  ~ GIRL

If you add the mother’s age at conception and the year of conception and it turns out to be an even number, it’s a girl. If it is an odd number, it’s a boy. 

28 + 2010 = 2038

4. The IntelliGender ~ GIRL {I think}

I would like to preface this by saying that I did not purchase this product. I would never purchase a product that basically has a 50/50 chance of getting the results correct. I received the IntelliGender in a Swag Bag. Since it was just laying around the house, I figured why the heck not.


And the best test of all..

5. Ask your 2.5 year old son ~ GIRL!

E has been saying from the very beginning that Mommy’s baby is a “gurl” baby. Not to be confused with his baby. Yes, he thinks he has a baby in his belly, too.

So let’s recap…


We won’t know who is right for about another 7 weeks {that’s an eternity!} but it’s fun guessing!

Don’t forget to take the poll on the right! What do you think we’re having?
