Well I can hardly believe it but another 4 weeks has passed and we are now 16 weeks into this pregnancy! We had our appointment yesterday and got to hear the heart beat again. Something I will never grow tired of I think! It was hard to find at first because our little one kept kicking and the doctor would lose the sound, but finally she was able to get it at 145bpm.
I am still trying to guess whether this baby will be a boy or a girl – without the official ultrasound test. Although I like the idea of the surprise at the end I am feeling like a child on Christmas morning, too excited to wait for mom and dad to wake up to tear into all the presents. So I want to “shake the box” a little and try and guess what it will be without knowing for sure.
So I have enlisted the help of some very reliable (ha-ha) gender predictor tests and have come up with the following…
Chinese Gender Chart – it’s a boy
Gender Heart rate Theory – it’s a girl (although I remember Gabriel’s heart rate right around 142)
Wedding Ring Test – it’s a girl
Babyzone Gender Predictor Test – it’s a boy
So as you can see by these very scientific methods unless I am having twins, which I am NOT, I am no closer to knowing what our little package will be in May! For now I am just loving the fact that I get to be excited about the unknown and trying to practice a little patience in the process!
So what’s your guess for the next Smith family member?
