It's a GIRL!!! sooo excited, and so surprised. :)
Had to go out and buy a few girly girl things. I'm in love already.

She (have to get used to that, I've been saying "he" for 20 weeks) was moving all around during the ultrasound. The tech said she had to chase her all over the place, and I could feel her kicking like crazy. After she was done all her measuring and looking at all of the baby's vital organs, heart, brain, etc. she called Rob into the room. This technician was wonderful, she really showed us so much and just let us watch her stretching her legs and arms and rolling around for quite some time. I really appreciated it! After a few minutes Rob said, "so, it's a boy? I think it's a boy" and she took a look over. I also said I thought it was a boy, and she goes "well, it's a girl!" :) I teared up. haha, so happy!

half way there!!

Today I am 20 weeks pregnant! half way there!!!

How your baby's growing:

Your baby weighs about 10 1/2 ounces now. He's also around 6 1/2 inches long from head to bottom and about 10 inches from head to heel — the length of a banana. (For the first 20 weeks, when a baby's legs are curled up against his torso and hard to measure, measurements are taken from the top of his head to his bottom — the "crown to rump" measurement. After 20 weeks, he's measured from head to toe.)

Our ultrasound is today at 2:30, and baby co-operating, we will know if we are having a little boy or girl. I can't wait!!!

the wait

yay! the ultrasound is booked for the 17th of August! will it be a boy or a girl? let me know what you think! :)

according to the chinese gender prediction test: girl

according to various old wives tales: girl
based on some of these old wives tales
- Sleeping in a bed with your pillow to the south indicates that you will be having a girl.
- Your feet are not colder than they were before pregnancy. You are having a girl.
- The maternal grandmother doesn't have gray hair (dyed or natural), so a girl will be born.
- You had morning sickness early in pregnancy, so you are expecting a girl.
- Your chest development has been quite dramatic during pregnancy. You should expect a girl.
- Since the sum of the mother's age at conception and the number of the month of conception is an odd number, it will be a girl.
- You are craving sweets, which means that it is a girl.
- You have been craving meats or cheeses, so it is a boy.
- Your baby's heart rate is 140 or more beats per minute, so it's a girl

according to this interesting (apparently scientific) study: boy

my lovely friend mita also did a gender prediction test with a crystal pendant, if it's a girl it swings in a circle, a boy if it swings side to side. the result: boy

I have a strong feeling it's a boy, as does Rob, but mostly everyone else is feeling it is a girl. We are so excited either way! I would love for Colt to have a brother but the thought of having a little girl warms my heart. I can't wait to find out!
