Wasting a Friday at Work…

Trying to determine through the always accurate internet whether there are pretty pink dresses and dolls or denim and footballs in my future. And, according to childbrith.org there is a 77% chance I’m having a girl! Here’s why…

  • You are carrying the extra weight out front, so it’s a boy.
  • The hair on your legs is not growing any faster during your preganacy, so it’s a girl.
  • Boys are carried low. You are going to have a boy. I really don’t know whether I’m carrying high or low… different people give me different opinions.
  • Sleeping in a bed with your pillow to the north indicates that you will be having a boy. Guessed on this answer too… seriously, I don’t even know my left from right most days, you want me to know if my pillow faces north or south??
  • Your feet are not colder than they were before pregnancy. You are having a girl.
  • You refuse to eat the heel of a loaf of bread. You are having a girl.
  • Dad-to-be hasn’t been gaining weight along with Mom-to-be, so it will be a girl.
  • The maternal grandmother doesn’t have gray hair (dyed or natural), so a girl will be born.
  • You had morning sickness early in pregnancy, so you are expecting a girl.
  • You are looking particularly good during pregnancy. Therefore, it must be a boy, because girls steal their mother’s looks. I only answered this one this way after a weekend of people telling me how cute I was. Please note: I do not actually feel cute.
  • Your chest development has been quite dramatic during pregnancy. You should expect a girl.
  • Since the sum of the mother’s age at conception and the number of the month of conception is an odd number, it will be a girl.
  • Your urine is a dull yellow color, so you will have a girl. Cause I’m sure you’ve always wanted to know that!
  • You are craving sweets, which means that it is a girl.
  • Your nose hasn’t changed during pregnancy, which indicates a girl. Do women’s noses really change when they’re pregnant?? Good Lord, men should have to do this too.
  • You have been craving fruits, so it is a girl.
  • Your baby’s heart rate is 140 or more beats per minute, so it’s a girl. At least this week it was.
  • You must have orange juice every day, so it’s a girl.
  • You are not having headaches, so it’s a girl.
  • Your belly looks like a basketball, so it’s a boy.
  • You show them the palm of your hand, so it’s a girl.
  • You use the body of the mug, so it’s a girl.

So there you have it! Little boys born in our town in the last couple and next couple of years, look out! There’s gonna be a new heartbreaker in town. If, of course, her father lets her out of the house.
