HEY! Were havin a baby :)


Yep that's right, for those of you who don't already know I am 17 weeks and counting to our 6th baby and I couldn't be more excited! I can't say the same for many people around me, but hey you can't please everyone right?

Since I am almost to 20 weeks(20 weeks is when most women get their official ultrasound to see what the gender of their baby is) I have decided to use the remaining 3 weeks to take a stab at some "old wives tales". I will do each one and post the results just before my 20 weeks ultrasound. Also please put your 2 cents in, I don't have many readers so if you happen to stubble upon my blog please leave a comment...in other words I don't care if I know you or don't leave a comment on whether you think this baby is a boy or a girl. Thanks

1st- GENDER MAKER- is a test using your morning urine on a control stick to give you either a "pink"(girl) or "blue"(boy) result. The cost= $24.99 with free shipping or $19.99 with $3.00 shipping from amazon

2nd- CHINESE GENDER CHART- which uses the Chinese calendar to predict the gender of your child based on how old you are at the time of conception and in what month you conceived. The cost is FREE

3rd- THE WEDDING RING TEST- put your wedding ring on a string, Lie down and dangle the ring over your belly. If it starts moving in circles, you are having a boy, or if it moves like a pendulum from side to side, then you are having a girl. The cost = FREE

4th- THE DRANO TEST- Collect around 2 or 3 ounces of morning urine and mix it with around two tablespoons of crystal Drano. Do not use the liquid form, as there will not be the same sort of chemical reaction. If the mixture turns brownish in color you are going to have a boy. If the mixture doesn't get any darker, and if it doesn't become brownish in color then its a girl. *Drano is a powerful and dangerous chemical to use during pregnancy* because of this I will provide the urine and my hubby will be doing the rest of the test far away from me. The cost= around $10.00

5th- THE RED CABBAGE TEST- cut up a cabbage, boil it in water then mix 1 part of morning urine to 1 part cabbage water and if the water turns pink or red your having a boy if the water turns purple or grey you are having a girl. The cost= $2.49

I will post my results and also test out any other wives tales I happen to find out about in the next 3 weeks.

Julie I did take the picture on a cold windy december day and my kids hated me for it, but they are all smiling for the picture and thats what counts right? lol

Alishia, I have been checking with the chinese calendar for the last 2 years everytime someone I know is having a baby and so far it has been right everytime (7 times so far)

Love all the different ways...I can't wait to see what the test results are. BTW....CONGRATS to you guys that is exciting, not really sure how you have that much patience to have 6 kids, but maybe that is because there is NO way that I could do it.
