"Well, Who Is It?"

 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.

~ I have had much drier skin with this
pregnancy over the others.

So there you have it. What is your guess?

Baby boy?

Baby girl?

Around 19 weeks.
Probably the last belly photo you will see ;)

I say girl according to the heart rate.... All my boys were in the upper 150's and Emily was in the 140's.... As far as feeling different, same, etc.... I carried Emily the same as the boys, nothing was really all that different. All 4 pregnancies had their similarities and differences. So, my vote is girl strictly based on the heart rate. Either way baby Fedell is precious and loved beyond measure!!!

Awe you look so pretty!!! :) I hope you get a girl, you need a girl to go do fun girly stuff with. I love painting my daughters cute little toenails and having a sidekick to go shopping with, you definitely need that!

I think it's a GIRL!! I hope so, but I'll be happy with another baby boy Fedell too. I just want it to be a girl, for your sake. A little lady to dress up all cute and put flowers in her hair. And, someone to give Baby girl Piper's hand me downs to. You look beautiful by the way. And I want to see more belly pics after this!
