My anatomy scan is one week from today—YAY!! I thought it would be fun for you to guess what you think I’m having. For the record, I don’t have any feelings this time. Last time I had Julia’s name picked out a several weeks before my scan and I prayed it was a girl so I wouldn’t have to pick a boy’s name; I was that set on her name. This time I’m mentally preparing for a boy, just in case.
I always thought it would be fun to stay “team green,” but I just don’t think I could refer to the baby as “It” for the whole nine
yards months. It’s driving me crazy not being able to say “she” or “he.”
So here’s the deal: there won’t be a fun care package reveal this time
around, but it’ll still be just as exciting, because…baby! I have my scan next
Wednesday and hopefully timing and the internet will be on our side,
because the plan is to FaceTime with my husband during the ultrasound.
We’re hoping to find out together (cue excitement) and then keep it a
secret for five whole days until I get home and share it with the
family…and then you guys!
So here’s a little compilation of different gender predictor myths and my answers for them, then, you can place your bet to the left on the sidebar (so if you’re reading this on a reader or on your phone, come on over to the site—you can leave a comment, too. Comments are always lovely).

So there ya go! Sorry it isn’t exactly helpful since the tally came out exactly even. Whoops! Maybe that means there are actually twins in there. HA! Kidding. (Seriously…let’s all pray that I’m kidding.)
