Sugar and Spice or Snails and Puppy Dog Tails?



Our big ultrasound is coming up on March 5th so I thought I'd take an informal poll on what the gender of Parker Baby #2 will be. A few details to help you with your vote ....

1. Myself and just about everybody else was convinced that Lily was going to be a boy. I remember telling Johnny the night before her ultrasound that I was 95 percent sure. And according to the Chinese calendar, heart beat theories, etc. .... she was supposed to be a boy, too.

2. I am almost as convinced that this baby will be a boy. For that reason I am voting girl because I do not trust my motherly instincts :).

3. There are more boys than girls in Johnny's family. No family has had two girls in a row. Will we break the trend?

4. The girls are winning out in my family. 3 girls to 1 boy.

5. And now for a little about the baby. This baby is a MOVER :). I felt the first movement at just over 15 weeks. Johnny and I had been hoping for a calm child to even out our exciting times with Lily (which we do love :) ). I have the feeling that we will have no such luck. The baby's heart rate has typically been in the 160s. The baby also loves Lily. Whenever Lily is leaning against my tummy is when I can feel the baby the most. Either the baby is saying hello or "move it. I am on my way!"

6. Lily's vote is for a baby boy named Bruce.

I vote boy. But not Bruce. :) Your motherly instincts can't be wrong twice in a row, can they? I just want to play with that baby - whatever it is!!! My sister felt her baby boy much earlier than her girl, so that's what I'm going off of! I can't wait to find out!

I think it's gonna be a boy, no real reason - either way it's exciting!!!

I say girl! Can't wait to find out!

I vote girl because if the baby loves Lily, I think that means it's a girl.

I say boy, because if you are saying girl (even though you think boy) it will be whatever you say it is not. ha ha!
That, and boys move much sooner then girls in the belly. (at least mine did)
Woohoo that you get to find out soon!!!

I think girl---that's what I'm having!

I'm going to guess girl since there are more girls than boys on the Trostie side for now.

I always guessed that I was having a boy, and was always wrong. So this time I didn't even guess, and then I got my boy! Figures. So I will guess boy for you too!

I guess BOY! However I obviously do not have pregnancy credentials to lean on. The baby will be adorable either way!! bex
