Boy or Girl?

Tomorrow is the big day! We finally get to find out if we are having a boy or a girl. I thought I would have some fun with this and play around with some old wives tales. :)

1. Chinese Calendar
According to the Chinese pregnancy calendar, which can be found here http://www.momswhothink.com/pregnancy/chinese-pregnancy-calendar.html, it's a 

2. Cravings (Sweet or Sour/Salty)
If you crave sweets, it's a girl. If you crave sour/salty things, it's a boy. Hmmm, this one is a little tough. I really had bad craving for sour things in the beginning of my pregnancy. Now I crave both on occasion, but my biggest craving lately is Arby's, as we all know, so that means it's a

My jeans fit the same. I haven't noticed any weight gain in any area other than my stomach and my chest. So it's a 

7. What do I think?
71% of the time, the mom-to-be knows what she is having. I'm honestly so torn on this one. From the way this little baby kicks, I would definitely say it is a boy. But, I can imagine myself having a girl more than a boy.  So it must be a 

Stay tuned for a FB poll tonight, then you can tell me what YOU think we are having!!! :D

  1. You're uterus grows from the bottom up, I think the carrying thing is after they've taken over your abdomen. ;) And you don't even look pregnant! Are you sure you're not just arching your back? HAHA
