OK, so I thought this might be fun. Why don't we all list which sex is indicated by various old wives' tales, home methods and so on? I'll start, and you can copy and paste the 'criteria' if you want...

Right?! No way I could keep that secret. And besides, anyone who came to visit me at home would likely see me sewing ruffly dresses or little blue overalls. I'd just feel paranoid about it the whole...

I like the idea of waiting, and we did for our first child - but nope, we're finding out. :p

The thing is, I sew. I didn't when DD (our first) was brand-new, but I learned when she was a baby and...

Oh, no. I'm so sorry. How awful.

I asked DH what he would do in that situation, and his immediate response was "Um, I'd shoot the dog on the spot?" Honestly, protecting the dog is unconscionable....

Bah, go for it. The new-baby association will outweigh the cat association soon enough.

Interesting! Do you have to pay for 'em, though? In NZ pregnancy ultrasounds are either free or heavily subsidised, so I guess it makes sense for them to want to limit them to 'necessary' or at least...

FyerFly, is that just a personal association (like an ex-boyfriend or something), or a cultural one? I'm trying to think of serial killers named Jasper and coming up short, but my knowledge of serial...

I've been reading a LOT. Being out of bed for too long makes me feel faint and nauseated, so I've been semi-bedridden for weeks. It sucks, but it does let me plough through a ton of books!
