20 weeks and Old Wives Tales

So here is the basketball at 20 weeks, I keep getting comments about how high I am carrying and that I am all out front so I have definitely heard the basketball reference.

Last week before our ultrasound we tested out some of the old wives tales. The Chinese chart thing said I was having a boy, a list of all types of OWT that you answer gave me a 57% chance of having a boy, and the necklace thing (if it spins in a circle its a girl and back and forth is a boy) says I'm having Girl, Girl, Boy (wowah, I don't know about 2 more kids). So who was right??????

Well without further ado here is Little Miss, yes that's right we are having a perfectly healthy little girl (I'm not sure anyone that actually reads this didn't already know that, but anyway). Our ultrasound tech got some great profile pictures and we even got to see her in 4D. So far so good and all of her vital body parts and development look just great.

I am definitely feeling movement now and she has even thrown a few Tai Chi or Kickboxing moves in this week. I got one kick or punch straight up at my stomach, that felt a bit odd, and then one towards my back. Usually they are pretty low, but those two were after I ate a few M&Ms so maybe I made my poor baby spaz :) This could get pretty interesting as she gets bigger and starts running of room with her crazy gymnastics.

I've done pretty well as far as the shopping so far, I made one trip into Children's Place and they were having mark-downs plus another 40% off that price so I got here some stuff for next summer and then I went into the Carter's store at Keystone and they were having a clearance sale so I picked up a few things there. Since I got that out of my system I think I'm now focused on getting nursery furniture picked out and the all the fun decorating from there.

In case you want to know we are not going to be divulging the name, but we currently have a list of 3 that Adam and I can both agree on, so we'll see if we can make a final decision before we are on our way to the hospital.

Next up:

Nursery Furniture

Crib Bedding
