We hope everyone had a Merry Christmas!
After the festivities, the fun didn’t stop as between renovating and getting re-energized after all the food and family time, we had another appointment at the OB. Things were a bit rushed, as I suspect they had quite a few women to see after the holidays, but we did have time to take a sneak peak. Ok, it feels weird to have three adults squinting intently at the screen, trying to discern whether or not something can be seen. But, either way, we were very excited to find out that we are most probably expecting another girl!
According to http://www.babycentre.co.uk/a1053580/predicting-your-babys-gender , it is more likely a girl if:
“You and your partner are 40 or over, you suffer badly from pregnancy sickness , you were born in a tropical climate and conceived there , your baby was conceived in the winter, Dad-to-be’s job involves pollutants or stress (such as a high performance pilot or a deep sea diver).” No to all of the above, so there you have it. Maybe we should look for both boy and girl names just to be on the safe side.
DD has accepted this gender change without batting an eye lash; she has always told us that there is a baby boy in my belly but now tells everyone that it’s a girl. She has also informed me that the baby is going to come out of my belly (while pointing to the correct area in question, which is sort of freaky as neither my husband nor I have ever really told her where babies do come out. Glad she figured it out on her own, this will make the birds-and-bees talk so much easier! ) and then snuggle with her in bed. Alright then, glad that’s settled.
In other news, my sister has been able to feel the suspected baby girl kick, things are definitely picking up on the movement-front, and we do in fact think we might have a name. Will be secret though in case we change our minds.
As for the 23 week-sized baby, I was baking and pondering over which vegetable to manipulate to be 25 cm long. Ha, 25 cm is the diameter of my baking pan, so there you have it. And girls DO like chocolate, so it’s perfect for this week.
