…And baby makes 4!

I thought I’d take a short break from blogging about my own baby…

…to blog about someone else’s! I’ve been keeping this one a secret for some time, but was finally given the go-ahead to announce the good news. Lisa, Joel and Cameron Menard’s family will be growing by ‘two feet’ sometime in late August. I couldn’t be happier. And neither could Jaia. The more playmates the better.

CONGRATULATIONS to all of you.

Lisa - Thanks for the congrats. We are pretty excited and we are going on Valentine’s Day to listen for a heartbeat. You can’t get much more perfect than that!

There is a debate going on about the baby’s gender (sounds familiar?) and I’m wondering if anyone has any old wives tales or tricks to determine what it is going to be…?

shannen - SO MANY OLD WIVES’ TALES. But most are just that, old and tales. Almost all that I came across confirmed my suspicion, that I was having a boy. 😐 And we all know how wrong I was.

1. Heart rate over 144 = girl, under = boy (Jaia was around 140-148 the whole time)
2. If you are all belly = girl (though I actually heard the opposite as well)
3. The old ring test. If the ring swings back and forth = boy, in a circle = girl (a cousin did this to me and it swung back and forth


What are you feeling? My intuition sucked. Obviously.

Jen - My prediction is:

Lisa - I did the ring test and it swung in huge circles…it was actually a little freaky. Joel even tried it and had the same result. I tried it over my hand and the same thing. When I moved my hand away the thing STOPPED completely. I think I may take my magic trick on the road! My intuition says girl but it isn’t like I’m a seasoned pro….
