A game!

The game is called PREDICT THE GENDER OF OUR BABY!

I had a girl the first time around. According to the Chinese Gender Calendar this one SHOULD be a girl too. It correctly predicted Maddie's gender, and if my math is correct then it was right about mine and my sister's genders too. You look at the mother's age at the time of the baby's CONCEPTION (not birth), and then the month the baby was born. Was it right for you or your baby?

Everyone says that if the second pregnancy is different than the first pregnancy, then the baby is of the opposite sex. There have been differences in this pregnancy, but not really very significant differences. Are they enough to mean that I am having a boy this time around?

The first time around I was nauseous almost constantly for two months straight. This time around I wasn't constantly nauseous, but when I was it was severely so I vomited a few times. The first time around my hair got super thick and nary a hair fell out until months after I gave birth. This time around it doesn't seem anything has changed for my hair.. I get a few strays in my brush and it's not really getting any thicker. Could it be because I am carrying a boy or could it be because I only gave birth to my last baby 15 months ago.. The first time around I had lovely clear skin. This time around I had mild, very mild, acne on my chin. Although perhaps I just don't remember acne the first time around.

John and I have thoughts about what we might be having this time around. We will find out on Tuesday evening!! In the mean time, what's your guess? Take the poll to the right! I'll reveal what our guess is and what the baby actually is that night. How exciting!!

All four of mine were correct. I have always liked the Chinese calendar. Oh, and the pregnancy being different thing...means nothing. My third wrote her own rules. The last two were opposite and both preterm.

Differences dont mean a thing - Maddie needs a sister :)

The chart accurately predicted Princess and Gman, but wrong on Al.

I think the differences do mean something!

When Maddie came to visit me at work today, I asked her if she wants a brother or sister. She said she wants a brother so DaDa can stop rough housing with her and pick on her brother!!
Love you lots!
