Shiloh's post on the last thread induced me to edit a question into this one.
Do you believe in any of the old wives tale about gender prediction? You know, rings on strings, heart rates, sibling gender prediction, carrying high or low, etc
I am 18wks + 3days and can't wait for my ultrasound. Last time, I had the scan at 18 or 19 wks but this technician will not do it before 20wks. Right now I'm thinking we won't find out the sex and we'll let our family and friends take bets on it. That was pretty fun last time. DS is very insistent that this is a girl. DH called the baby a boy name the other night and DS lost it. He was actually yelling at us that the baby is a girl. Usually he's not so aggressive about it. DH and I couldn't stop laughing which probably didn't help. I do have moments where I feel like it might be less confusing and/or disappointing for him if we did find out but...i don't know. I hear all these stories about ultrasound technicians getting the sex wrong.
I'm feeling pretty great lately. I have been slacking on exercise for the past few days and kind of junking out on treats a bit but today we went for a nice long walk and I'm off the cake.
The bean is moving around so much now. Honestly sometimes its like he/she is doing kung fu in there. Of course, whenever I sit or lie down quietly and let DH feel there is like nothing. Its frustrating because I have felt really strong kicks that were very obvious when DH isn't around. I'm anxious for that. This morning, when he couldn't really feel the kicking he got so excited that the baby could hear sounds and so he started talking to him/her. It was really sweet.
