We’re at the half way mark in this pregnancy and this second trimester has been smooth sailing. I have lots of energy and in the past few weeks our home has returned to it’s normal, busy pace. Earlier this week we even rearranged furniture and deep cleaned in our main living areas.
My singular concession to this pregnancy is that I’m trying to get to bed a little earlier than usual. By evening I’m tired. I’m not willing to say it’s all pregnancy because our days have been jam packed, but whatever the cause getting a good nights sleep has become a necessity.
Bella (21 months) is finally sleeping through the night and so, for the first time in nearly 2 years, am I.
Tomorrow is our big ultrasound scan where they check the baby from head to toe to make sure that everything looks like it’s developing properly. We’ll also probably find out the gender of the baby.
A few evenings ago our family, plus our company, guessed the baby’s gender. We thought it would be fun to let you in on guessing.
Nine of us guessed boy and five of us guessed girl.
I’ve been correct on guessing gender for 8 (I guessed boy) of the 10 and Mark has been correct twice (he guessed girl).
Our gender pattern has been girl, girl, boy, girl, boy, girl, girl, boy, boy, girl.
I do not carry differently with boys/girls nor feel more sick with one or the other.
The only thing that seems to have worked as an indicator of gender (sometimes) is the baby’s heart rate, high rate = girl, low rate = boy.
This baby’s heart rate has been 155, Mark says that means girl.
Your turn: Boy or Girl?
How is your pregnancy progressing? Any new babies?
