Baby Gender Prediction!

I can’t believe I’m already in week 20 of this pregnancy! It really is going by fast. This Friday we find out what we are having. So excited!! I thought it would be fun to go through all the fun gender prediction indicators and let you all have a guess!

Chinese Gender Prediction Chart

This is a chart that takes into account your age and the month of conception to give you a gender prediction. Some people swear by it. And it was right with Claire. Survey Says: GIRL

Baby Bump Position

For some reason I really can’t tell how I’m carrying this baby, but other people have told me it looks like I’m carrying high. I’ve also noticed I can pretty much still wear and button my regular pants, so the bump must be high. Survey says: GIRL

Heart Rate

At our initial visit the rate heart was around 160 bpm and the second appointment it was around 150 bpm. With Claire she was always in the 150 range- they say over 140 means girl, under means boy. Survey says: GIRL

The String Test

This one never works for me. Supposedly if you tie a ring to a string and let it hang over your belly it should swing either back and forth {which would indicate girl} or in a circle {which would mean boy}, for me it never does anything…it just dangles. Survey says: ????

Morning Sickness

Oh yes. Lots and lots of morning sickness. It lasted from week 7 through week 16. The EXACT same time frame I had it with Claire. Throwing up multiple times every morning {SO glad to be passed that}. Girls supposedly make you sicker than boys. Survey says: GIRL


I would say my complexion has stayed about the same. Haven’t broken out a ton but haven’t noticed my skin getting clearer either. They say girls steal your beauty and boys give you a better complexion, but I don’t know what it means if it stays the same. Survey says: ????

Food Cravings/Aversions

This time around I have been craving more sweet things. Like donuts, scones, and pop tarts. And some sour things too, like pickles and lemonade. They say sweet means girl and salty and sour means boy. I have a combo of both…so who knows. With Claire I wanted more salty things like potato chips and french fries. My aversions have been the same as last time…mainly lettuce and spinach. I think the jury’s out on this one too. Survey says: ????

So there you have it. Majority of these say GIRL and I know they are not necessarily correct, but I’ve also been feeling girl. I would be pretty surprised if it was a boy, but of course happy and excited with whatever this little babe is 🙂

What’s your guess??

Here we go again!


I think {most of} my followers here are also my friends in real life and by now know the news! But for those who don’t, we’re having another baby!! So excited to finally let the cat out of the bag, though this time around it was a lot harder to keep my mouth shut. I felt like I was blurting it out all over the place. SO much different than the first time. I think I just didn’t have as much of the anxiety as I did during my 1st trimester with Claire. Also, I started looking pregnant WAY sooner, so maybe I just wanted people to know it wasn’t just extra chub I was packing on.
