18 Weeks- Boy or Girl

 Baby is the size of a large tomato this week. Baby turned 18 weeks on Wednesday, November 16th.
Pumpkins in the fire place is an idea I stole from Pinterest.

I looked up some old wives' tales to see if it is a boy or girl.
  1.  Heart rate- heart rate was over 140 BPM, so it's a girl.
  2.  Key test- If you pick up a key at the largest part, it's a boy. Who picks up a key at the narrow part anyways? 
  3. Mayan Tale- Mother's age + year of conception= 29 + 2011= 2040, even number means it's going to be a girl.
  4. Acne- If you have acne during pregnancy it's a girl. Unfortunately I have acne.
  5. Cravings- I want salt. Therefore I'm having a boy.
  6. History of parents' kids- I'm a first born, I'll have what my mom had starting off with her second child, which is a boy. I'm having a boy.
  7. Legs- I have tree trunks for legs, therefore I'm having a boy.
  8. Chinese Calendar- Says its a boy
  9. Dreams- Dreams show the opposite of what you are having. Therefore I'm having a boy.
  10. Side you rest on- I prefer to rest on my left side, which equals a boy.
  11. Hands- I show my hands with my palms up, so I'm having a girl.
  12. Dad's weight gain- He hasn't gained any weight. We are having a boy.
  13. Morning sickness- No morning sickness means it's a boy!
  14. Breast test- Left is bigger, therefore a girl it will be.
  15. Hands are dry- Mine are cracking. So it's going to be a boy.
  16. Nose- My nose is staying the same, therefore I'm having a girl.
  17. Baby Name- I can think of a girl name, but not a boy. So I'm going to have a girl.
It's a boy: 10
It's a girl: 7

We shall see on December 2nd! I CAN'T WAIT!


  1. Yeah, I'm calling bullshit on the no morning sickness one :)

  2. Great post! We shall see!

  3. I should do all these tests! But my ultrasound is tomorrow and I'm definitely to lazy to do them all before then.

  5. Gosh you look so cute! I haven't heard of half of these. I will definitely try them when its my turn though ;)

  6. This is awesome that you rounded up all the old wives tales. I love when people would say to me oh you are " " so you are having " ". You have written the ultimate response. Touche, old wives tale people.

  7. Alright, this is awesome. I'm totally tardy to the party, but just because I want to share anyway, here are the ones we know about:
    Heart rate: girl
    Mayan: 30+2011= boy
    Acne: oh my word, yes! Girl
    Craving Salt: boy
    Chinese calendar says Girl
    Dreams: mostly of girl babies
    Lay on my right side- girl
    show hands palms down- boy
    yes morning sickness, though not a lot-girl
    hands- not dry... girl
    nose- same as it ever was- girl
    name: we totally have a boy name DOWN, so yes... girl

    That's 9 for girl & 4 for boy. And yes, we're having a girl!
