Boy or Girl?



I finally get to find out what we are having on Monday morning. WOO HOO! It is getting embarrassing not knowing. I am so big that people assume I found out long long ago, and they just give me this confused look when I don't know yet. In their defense I will be close to 21 weeks and with my other kids I found out at 16 or 17 weeks. I have thought about just messing with them and telling them I am not going to find out with this one;)

I have tried to ask our kids what we are having, and they are not much help. Mitchell's sense of fair play leads him to think that it could ONLY be a boy. A girl is not even possible. 4 girls and 1 boy? SO not fair. He told me if it was a girl we would just have to give her up for adoption. Sometimes I think Wendell agrees;)

Brenley just says whatever you said last. Example: "Brenley, are you going to have a baby sister or a baby brother?" "baby brother." "Brenley, are you going to have a baby brother or baby sister?" "baby sister" See what I mean?

I am pretty sure Rachael and Kindyl just say it will be a boy to humor me.

If we have a boy it will break a major streak in my family, and Wendell's. We all have all of one sex and only one of the other. Example: Jannalee- 6 girls 1 boy. Joy: 4 boys, 1 girl. Both of our families lean decidedly towards girls. So, like I said, the odds are stacked against us having a boy.

Can we do it? Can we break this major trend? What do you think?

I don't really know how to do an actual survey on here, so I am going to do this really really low tech. Leave a comment, and I will tally the votes.I want to hear your opinion. ALL of you;)

edit: Rachael knows how to do a survey and put one on for me. And she figured out my password herself. My 11 year old has surpassed me technologically;)

10 people know I love comments!:

I'm rooting for a boy. Maybe if you break the trend, we will eventually as well. I will be eagerly awaiting a blog Monday morning/early afternoon. Good luck!

Rooting for a boy. I do have some baby boy clothes still. Found some Krisiti didn't get, so if it's a boy, I'll pass them along for you!Even newborn sizes! I can't believe looking at them my fatty ever fit into them!

I am hoping it's a boy because Thomas needs a playmate, and I know how much you want a boy. I can't wait to hear the news...hopefully the baby will cooperate.

Holly & Marcie said...

We think it's a boy! The streak is over!

k, I was just on Rachael's blog, and she has a poll in her sidebar. I had to laugh...she needs to show you how to set it up...it is very simple.

Holly Janeen said...

I am hoping for a boy! Even though I am having another girl too and so since I didn't get my boy someone else needs to not get one also. J/K I am excited to find out!
