i am only 16 weeks pregnant, but the sex of this baby has been on my mind for quite a while now. when i was pregnant with reagan i REALLY REALLY REALLY wanted a girl and i was quite upset(devastated, crushed, bawling my face off) after the ultrasound said he was a boy. of course i love reagan more than ice cream and sleep so everything worked out fine. this time around i really don't care either way what it is. honestly. i would even wait until birth to find out what it is if i wasn't afraid of being shorthanded on girl clothes if that's what it came to. every few days i get really excited about a certain gender though, like today when i was reading lachelle's blog, i was pretty sure a girl would be just great. but yesterday, while thomas and i were making a list of acceptable boy's names during the sunday school lesson(a very short list as it turns out) i was quite excited for a boy. so, what's an impatient girl to do in this situation? i got all scientific and i went to the experts. the chinese birth calendar. (click on the calculator option.) i googled the many options online and this one seems to be the easiest to follow; it does the calculations for you. some of the other charts had conflicting directions as far as mother's birthday or delivery age or conception or size of shoe you wear, blah blah blah. and this chinese birth calendar was right last time, so why not??? so, drumroll please.....i am (possibly) having a boy! sooper! too bad he will most likely go through life without a name since there are so few names both thomas and i can agree on.
two things, just for fun of course, let me know if this calendar has worked for you in the past and send me your ideas for BOY baby names. if i use one of your suggestions, i will send you a prize in the mail(for real), so make them good and creative and easily spelled. can you tell i like a good contest?
