I was at a 5 year old girl's birthday party the other week and she came up to me, staring questioningly at my burgeoning belly.
"What's in your stomach?" she asked.
"There is a baby in there" I told her.
" Well, who is it?" she asked.
It was a good question. Just who is this baby growing in my belly?
We will find out a major clue this week. The big gender revealing ultrasound. Will it be a girl or will it be a boy?
Jack votes girl. He already has a brother, he does not need another one. He does not have a sister, so it must be a girl.
Colin votes boy. He is a boy, Jack is a boy, his daddy is boy. It should, also, be a boy.
I am not voting, as I have mixed feeling, one day thinking boy, the other thinking girl.
Ryan won't vote either. He is staying neutral on it all.
So, who will this baby be? A girl baby or a boy baby.
Some little facts for the decision making:
~The baby's heart rate was around 140 the last check up. Both boys were in the high 150s.
~ I crave spicy and savory things over sweets. Vinegar based foods, spicy hummus with crackers, sparkling water, stuff like that. According to Ryan, the weirdest thing I have eaten from all the pregnancies is mashed potatoes with mustard. He thinks it is weird. I like the vinegary tang to it. Maybe after the baby is born it will sound weird, right now, it sounds delicious.
~I am carrying about the same as the boys, though I feel wider and bigger...but I always feel wider and bigger when pregnant.
