On Thursday, my husband and I will head to the hospital for our "big" ultrasound where they will check on Baby Bean's vital organs and, yes, check the gender. My husband and I are a bit nervous that it is too early to tell, or that the baby will not cooperate, but other than that, we're excited. We can't wait to find out and begin preparing the way for Baby Bean.
I think it is fair to say that I am carrying this baby differently than Cub. Now, I know moms who have several children who are all the same gender, yet each baby carried differently. And I know moms who have children who are different genders, yet each baby carried the same. I definitely understand that the Old Wives' Tales are just that--tales, primarily--but, I still think it is fun to guess.
SO! Here is a little comparison between my two pregnancies:
-Conceived in winter
-Cub's heart rate never exceeded 150 bpm
-Morning sickness lasted until 13 weeks (throwing up)
-Carried extremely low--lots of urinary tract infections (bleh)
-Primarily carried in the belly only
-Mama's coordination was a bit lacking--I couldn't wear heels past 10 weeks
-Conceived in fall
-Heart rate is around 165 bpm
-Morning sickness lasted until 17 weeks (throwing up and daily nausea)
-Carrying high--lots of heartburn (bleh)
-Immediately discovered love handles as well the token baby belly (sweet! love handles!)
-Wearing heels every day and loving it
-Craving cereal AND things that are salty, like tomato juice
Okay. There you have it!
So, friends, time to guess. Based on what you've heard ... is Baby Bean blue or pink??
I'm going to keep this post up for a few days and then I will let you know ... once the proper family and friends have been notified. :)
Have a lovely day!
