So, many of you know we are Team Green this time around! We had our anatomy scan December 10th and we did not find out, nor did we have a chance to accidentally see anything!
The tech may have very well given away the gender... But we are pretending she didn't say it outside of a general statement to avoid saying "the baby's."
She did confirm, again... there is only ONE baby in there! All those "are you sure it isn't multiple" comments can cease! We've had two ultrasounds showing only one precious little baby!
Everything seems to look healthy with Buck! The tech did not take long, so that could be a good thing.
I'm dealing with a few "firsts" other than just not finding out the gender! Buck is... dun dun dun... BREECH! First breech baby! So my plans for Chiro work are starting about 15 weeks early! I'll be listening to my Hypnobabies 'Turn your Breech Baby' and doing some Spinning Babies! I know it's incredibly early, but oh well. My placenta is not low lying for the very first time, but it is anterior... which explains why I'm not feeling as much of the movement as I hear on the Doppler! Hopefully it moves a bit out of the way the bigger my uterus gets so we can feel and see all those sweet, playful kicks that I cherish so much!
I'll get the "final word" from my doctor hopefully before the weekend!
Here is our precious Buck!
So, I've looked up all the gender tests I tried with Miss Bailey and I'm doing them again! I never knew about any gender "tests" outside of Old Wives Tales when I was pregnant with Bentley, so I only have Bailey to "compare against!"
**The Ring Test**
So the Ring Test is fun! You put your engagement or wedding ring, or I suppose any ring! on a string, hold it over your wrist and it's supposed to tell you how many kids you're going have and the genders of them all.
I did this with Bailey and just now with Buck and I've gotten the same result every single time!
Boy (Baby July)
By this time, my arms are hurting so I give up! But it's been the same every. single. time!
**The Baking Soda Test**
You put baking soda in a cup and pour your urine over it, if the baking soda fizzes very, very little or does nothing, it's a GIRL! If the baking soda fizzes a lot, it's a BOY!
For Bailey: GIRL!
The baking soda hardly reacted at all with my urine.
For Buck: BOY!
The baking soda fizzed like crazy and made a "head" like pouring a beer!
I don't have any pictures of Bailey's Baking Soda Test, but here are Buck's!
It's an incredible difference from Bailey's test! Hers had a few little bubbles and then settled to absolutely nothing! Definite GIRL result for Bailey and a definite BOY result for Buck!
**The Pencil Test**
The Pencil Test is very easy! Just get a string and attach it to a pencil. Stand up and hold the pencil chest high above your belly. If the pencil swings back and forth, it's a BOY! If the pencil circles, it's a GIRL!
Bailey: It's a GIRL!
After many, MANY attempts; it always circled.
Buck: It's a BOY!
After a bunch of attempts, it always swung back and forth!
**Chinese Gender Prediction**
**The Mayan Chart**
If the year and your age are both even, it's a GIRL! If the one of the numbers is odd, it's a BOY!
Bentley: 21 and 2010 = it's a BOY!
Bailey: 24 and 2012 = it's a GIRL!
Buck: 25 and 2014 = it's a BOY!
Just a few fun gender tests! My vibes say BOY all the way and *knock on wood* I've been right with all of our babies. Either one is perfectly fine with us! We just want a healthy baby!
Until next time, friends
