{Baby Black #2 - Boy or Girl?}

I did a post like this for when Delainey was inside so I can't not do it this time around. :) 
I totally take all of this with a grain of salt but it's kinda crazy that 24 hours from now we will know for sure. :) I am so darn excited. 

I know some people still enjoy finding out the sex at birth and I totally get that. It's a really special surprise. But for us - this is best and it's still a really special surprise just 21 weeks early. Finding out Delainey was a girl with Justin in that ultrasound room is easily in my top 10 favorite moments of all time. Plus then we got to do all the prep for HER! Now this time around having Delainey with us will just be even better {not that she gets it}. This is when the fun stuff starts and I can start harassing Justin about all things nursery and perhaps buying a few blue items if needed!

Alright onto the goods:

If the heartbeat is over 140 beats per minute then it's a girl. 
If it's lower, it's a boy.
The 2 times we have seen or heard it it's been over 140 - 169 at the ultrasound and 145 at a doctors appointment.

If you're craving sweet things, its a girl. If you're dying for salty or sour things, then its a boy.
I have been craving both at times I really can't decide. I crave sweet but salty has eased the nausea.

Mood test: Mostly happy? Then it's a boy. More moody? Then it's a girl.

Chinese Birth Chart - This method uses the Lunar calendar to determine your babies gender by taking note of the mothers age at time of conception along with the month of conception. According to this calendar, Age at conception: 32, Month of conception: February. {It was right last time!}

 Even/odd test: If your birth year and your age are both even numbers or both odd numbers then you are going to give birth to a girl. If one is odd, the other even, a boy is on the way. 
My birth year is: 1982, My age is: 32

Legend says that if you're having a girl, she'll steal your beauty and your skin will break out. If you don't experience any acne, it's a boy.

If you find yourself clumsier with pregnancy, you're having a boy. If you remain grounded and still in control of your body, it's a girl.
I am always clumsy.

If dad gains weight, it's a girl. If his weight stays the same, it's a boy.

Morning Sickness? If you're stricken with a queasy stomach during your first trimester, think ribbons and bows. If you sail through your pregnancy with nary an upset stomach, it's blue all the way. This was not true for me last time. I wasn't sick like this at all.

If you are carrying the baby low and in front then it means you're having a boy.  If you're carrying high and expand horizontally, then it means you're having a girl.
I am definitely expanding horizontally! I feel so wide.

Sleeping test: If you sleep more on your right side it's a girl. If you sleep more on your left side it's a boy.
I flip side to side and sometimes even wake up on my tummy with my leg tucked up to relieve pressure on my tummy. But I would say on my right side I find I sleep "better".

If you have headaches - it's a boy. No headaches - girl. BUT I had headaches my whole pregnancy with Delainey too. :)

What's your vote for baby Black #2? Girl or Boy??

i say boy!!! can't wait to find out!

Brie said...

I'm going with BOY! Also, we found out beforehand what we were having too, and I remember some people (i.e. old people I worked with lol) being all opinionated about finding out the gender early. My husband put it a good way (much like you did!), it's still a surprise if you find out early! Except you actually get two surprises this way - the day you find out the gender and then the day you actually deliver and finally get to meet your baby.
