38 weeks pregnant! What will we be having?

38 weeks pregnant

I attended a wedding last weekend in all my 37 and a half weeks glory! Although I couldn’t partake in the wine and my dancing was very much limited to a little swaying and jazz hands, I had a lovely time.

Not knowing many of the guests, it was great to have an icebreaker in the form of my giant belly:) I came away from the many conversations with an informal vote of gender prediction. My husband and I decided to not find out what we were having and it has been lots of fun hearing theories and guesses along the way.

We’re having a boy! Or so the majority of wedding guests believe, based mainly on the way I carry (high and straight out the front). My faith in this theory is waivering, as my sister carried much like I am and had two lovely little girls:)

Just for fun, I have been testing out a variety of gender predictors. According to the Chinese gender predictor, I am having a girl! According to the Old Wives tales predictor, it’s a boy!  The “wedding ring on a string” theory gave no results, as it didn’t move at all (pendulum means boy, circular means girl).

I thought by now I would have a strong feeling, instinct even, about what was growing inside me, but I don’t have a clue!  Of course, it doesn’t matter.  I am just so excited to meet this little person!

So what will we have?  The poll is still open:)

Did you leave the gender a surprise until baby’s birthday?

  1. Oh I just love surprises! 3 Babies, 3 surprises.

    My first, I wanted a son, so of course I had a feeling I would have one, and I was right LOL

    My second, I, like many, wanted the “couple” and thought it was going to be a girl, called the baby she the whole time… OOPS, second boy.

    For my third, I totally expected it to be another boy. And even at the delivery, when the doctor showed me the baby sideways, I though I had seen a boy… and was totally thrilled, but no! I had a baby girl! I think I was in awe that I had a baby girl for the next 6 months!

    Good luck with you delivery! A healthy baby is all I wish for you 🙂

    1. Thanks Michelle! It’s funny how our feelings are no more accurate than all these old wives tales and theories:) I really don’t have any intuition on the gender. I love the surprise too, especially for our friends and family. I am just thrilled to have a baby, but it does add an element of excitement to not know the gender!

  2. I carry exactly the same way as you! I carried the same way for all 4 of my pregnancies and I have 2 girls and 2 boys. 🙂 Congratulations and I hope you have a great delivery!
