Boys? Girls? One of Each?

We find out the sex of the babies in 5 days!!!! I am so excited I can't stand it. Before we find out, I thought it would be fun to guess based on old wives' tales.  Old Wives Tale #1: Heart Rate   If the baby’s heart rate is above 140 bpm, it is said that the baby will be a girl. If it is under 140 bpm, then it will be a boy.  Prediction outcome: GIRL Old Wives Tale #2: Shape of Belly If you are carrying high with a big, round belly, you are having a girl. If you are carrying low with a smaller belly that sticks straight out, it’s a boy.   Prediction outcome: NOT SURE (VOTE FOR BOTH) Old Wives Tale #3: Acne If you have acne while pregnant, it’s a girl. It’s thought that acne during pregnancy is caused by the extra hormones.  Prediction outcome: GIRL Old Wives Tale #4: Cravings People believe that if you are craving salty foods while pregnant, you can count on having a boy. If you crave sweets, fruit, and orange juice, you are having a little girl. Prediction outcome: BOTH Ol

Week 16

Size of Baby: At my 16 week appointment, Baby A weighed 5 ounces, and Baby B weighed 6 ounces Total Weight Gain/Loss: Down 17 pounds Maternity Clothes: I think I may have an obsession - I want to buy, buy, buy even though I have plenty. Gender: They tried to find out at the doctor, but they couldn't see anything. This has me leaning towards girls, as I have heard boys can typically be identified earlier. We will find out on the 28th. Movement: Still waiting Sleep: Interrupted this week by major hip pains - ow, ow, ow! What I miss: Lenny's Sub Shop sandwiches What I am looking forward to: Decorating the nursery Cravings/Aversions: Cheese & mustard sandwiches, which Marty finds so gross. Symptoms: Feeling pretty good aside from the random bursts of growing pains, some have caused tears. Best Moment This Week: Finding out my subchorionic has decreased in size, thanks to bedrest! Weekly Wisdom: I got nothin'. =)
