So, if you know me at all, you know that I am a bit type A and have a "touch" of OCD...just a touch. :o) Well, there's no better time to combine the type A personality with the OCD as when you are pregnant. Today...I caved in to my OCD side. A friend of mine had told me about this at-home test you could take that could determine the sex of your baby. Well, being almost as good as a new pair of shoes...I have been a bit fixated with the idea ever since she mentioned it. Did I mention that this friend is a she has to know what she is talking about...right? EXACTLY!
Today was the day...I just "happened" to go down a certain aisle at Target and what should I find but the "Intelligender: Is it a Boy or Girl?" test. How could I was like fate that I was in Target, down this aisle and there it was. So...of course I got it. I could hardly wait to finish the rest of my errands so that I could rush home and find it a boy or a girl?
Now, I have to tell a side story here. Another dear friend of mine told me about the "100% accurate"...that was her quote...Chinese lunar gender predictor. The results...BOY!
Now back to the story at mom, friend and I are convinced it is a sister, a few colleagues and other friends have very strong feelings that it is a girl. So, you see...I am in quite a predicament...what's a pregnant girl to do? Can you sense the sarcasm? just a little?
Well...I rush home, pee in the cup, stir in the "magic powder" term not Intelligender's term...wait 10 minutes...and the result is...GIRL!
So, what does this mean? Yup, you guessed it...we are still at a 50% chance its a girl and 50% chance its a boy! I guess I will just have to be a little bit patient and wait for the ultrasound!


  1. Yup. Wait for the ultrasound. Three legs...boy. Three lines...girl. Chinese calendar was 50/50 with my kids. My mom's too. Never tried the take home test, but I'd guess it can't really tell either. Were you planning for a baby? I mean, like, knowing when you ovulate and "working" extra hard during that time? 'Cause then I'd have a better chance of a boy. At least, that's the way mine worked out! I'm sure God will give you exactly what you need and I LOVE all three of my very different boys!

  2. You are too funny! At this point I don't have much longer to wait...we will find out next Wednesday! We weren't really trying yet. I had actually just figured out when I would have/be ovulating and what wold you know...we were prego. We don't really have a preference either way so whatever the results...we'll still be excited!
