It's Official

I'm showing. Sister said I looked like I was early in my pregnancy. Which I am, so that works out well. But what really convinced me, are all the people I walk by in the hall at work, who after looking me in the eye to say hello, glance down at my stomach. Clearly trying to figure out if I've gained weight or if I'm having a baby, but still to afraid to ask. So apparently Mason was right. But don't tell him, wouldn't want him to get a big head or anything.

This week, we are an orange. A 4 inch, 2.5 oz orange. Orange is learning about proportions this week, as the head is no longer the same size as the body and the legs are growing longer then the arms (both complete with functional joints). Apparently if could see my baby right now, I would laugh, as Orange tests out the developing muscles by making lots of funny faces.

Since we get to find out if Orange is a boy or a girl in about a month, I thought it would be fun to see if we can't figure it out here first, with old wives tales.

Sleep Position:
Left side - Boy
Right side - Girl
This is really more of a question of what I want to face. Mason and his snoring or the alarm clock reminding me how tired I am going to be in the morning. Lately, I've been sleeping on my back the most.
Verdict: N/A

Upset Stomach:
Extreme nausea - Girl
I don't think a slightly uneasy stomach on some days counts as extreme.
Verdict: Boy

Soft or Dry Hands:
Soft - Girl
Dry - Boy
What if my hands are soft and dry? The same as they were before I was pregnant.
Verdict: N/A

Food Cravings:
Citrus - Girl
I do crave large amounts of orange juice, while all the other juices sit there unnoticed by me. Fortunately Mason notices them.
Verdict: Girl

Adult Acne:
Break-outs - Girl
Aside from a few here and there, I'm mostly clear.
Verdict: Boy

Graceful or Clumsy:
Graceful - Girl
Clumsy - Boy
Well, I've only tripped once so far and I did that same thing when I wasn't pregnant.
Verdict: Girl

Face Weight Gain:
Fuller face - Girl
Hmm, I'm going to need a second opinion on this one. I don't think my face looks any fuller, but I also think that happens later. Is my butt bigger? Cause I heard that means girl too.
Verdict: ??

Sugar and Spice:
Craving salt - Boy
Craving sweet - Girl
As you know, I crave both. French fries followed by ice cream would be a great meal.
Verdict: Twins, one of each.

Mood Swings:
Moody - Girl
I don't think I am, but I could be wrong. I've only cried once so far without knowing why, poor Mason tried to leave the room to give me space and that made me cry harder. I didn't want him to touch me or look at me, but I didn't want him to leave either. Whatever Kayla, whatever.
Verdict: Boy

High or Low Stomach:
High - Girl
Low - Boy
It might still be to early to tell, but I'm going to say high.
Verdict: Girl

Baby Weight:
Baby weight in the front - Boy
Baby weight all around - Girl
I think it's still a little early for this one, but so far it appears to all be in the front.
Verdict: Boy

Pendulum Test:
Back and forth - Boy
Circle - Girl
Hang on, let me find something to make a pendulum out of... Pendulum #1 Circles. Pendulum #2 Little to no movement. Pendulum #3 Little to no movement. Pendulum #4 Both. Circles over the hand, back and forth over the belly.
Verdict: I have no idea.

Show Me Your Hands:
Palms up - Girl
Palms down - Boy
I can't do this one now, I know what it means and I'm thinking about it. Someone catch me off guard and ask me.
Verdict: TBD

Toddler Advice:
Boy toddler ignores belly - Boy
Boy toddler takes interest - Girl
Anyone have a boy toddler I can borrow?
Verdict: TBD

Eat Garlic Test:
Garlic seeps out of pores - Boy
No smell - Girl
I haven't noticed me smelling like garlic after I eat it, but I might just be used to it.
Verdict: Girl

Key Test:
Pick up a key by the round end - Boy
Long end - Girl
What if I pick up keys by the handful?
Verdict: TBD

Evens or Odds:
Age and conception year both even or odd - Girl
One even, one odd - Boy
Verdict: Girl

Baby's Heartbeat:
More then 150 bpm - Girl
Less then 150 bpm - Boy
Verdict: Girl

Stress Test:
A child tends to be the same sex as the parent who is less stressed at the time of conception.
What?! How about who was less stressed about finding out about the pregnancy? Cause that would have been Mason. But who is less stressed most of the time would probably be me.
Verdict: This one is stupid. N/A

Dream Meanings:
Having a girl - Boy
Having a boy - Girl
Too busy sleeping to dream - Go to bed earlier
Verdict: Go to bed earlier.

Breast Size:
Right one fuller - Girl
Left one fuller - Boy
Do I really want to blog about my boobs?
Verdict: Wouldn't you like to know.

Undetermined - 10
Boy - 5
Girl - 7

And the girls have it. But don't go buy any girl clothes yet Mom (even though Linda already did) I still think it's a boy.
