Our next OB appointment is this coming Monday, the start of week 22, and we were warned it would be an ultrasound appointment. I’m just going to go out on a limb and say it’s out anatomy scan. Which means that, as long as Lady Jr cooperates, we’ll find out the sex.
Before we found out I was pregnant, I thought I’d prefer a girl. But now that I’ve been pregnant and been carrying around this little proto-human for a while, I honestly no longer care. Either is fine. Both is fine. We will smash the patriarchy together no matter the sex.
So, my own guess? Well, if we’re going by numbers, then the fact that all three of my nieces are girls and everyone I know offline has had a girl lately means we’ll have a boy. If we go by the number of times I’ve slipped and used a pronoun instead of it/they for Lady Jr, we’re having a girl. If we go by gut – it depends on the day!
According to yea olden wives’ tales:
Carrying high vs low: Low
Craving salts vs sugars: CARBS CARBS CARBS
Fetal heart rate above or below 140: 145
All the acne vs clear skin: Clear skin
Content of dreams: COVERED IN ANTS
Morning sickness?: Yes
Dry hands vs soft hands: Much drier than usual (and this is the desert!)
Boobs, which one is bigger: Left
Sleeping on the left side vs the right: Left
Moody or calm as iced tea: BITCH STAY BACK I’LL CUT YOU
There you have it. Even the old wives’ tales agree with me: we’re having both!
Make your predictions now. If you guess right, you will be rewarded with a smug feeling of satisfaction. 🙂
