Old Wives' Tales

Okay, for all of you who are curious as to how this pregnancy compares to my last pregnancy, according to all the old wive's tales on gender?  Read on.

Craving salty/sour things or sweet things?

With Wyatt: I craved salty/sour things.
With this Baby: I've have been craving both.
Hands dry or soft?
With Wyatt: Didn’t notice.
With this Baby: No difference.
Sick or eating more?
I wasn't very sick with either of my pregnancies, maybe slightly more sick with Wyatt than with this baby.
Can people tell you are pregnant from the back?
With Wyatt: No.
With this Baby: ? I'm not sure.  I don't think so.  Not yet anyway.
Carrying High or Low?
I carried pretty low with Wyatt, and I feel like I'm carrying slightly higher with this pregnancy.  But if you want to see a side-by-side comparison, here you go:
This is me at 20 weeks with both pregnancies, Wyatt on the left, this Baby on the right:
I'll let you be the judge.  Though it feels just a little higher to me even if it doesn't look it.  I was already in maternity pants with Wyatt in that picture on the left.  This time I can still mostly make my regular pants work, like in the picture on the right.
Baby's heart rate over 140 bpm?
With Wyatt: It was in the 40-50's range throughout the pregnancy.
With this Baby: Started out much higher than Wyatt's (in the 60's-80's), but it seems to have evened out the last couple times we went in and was more in the 40-60's range.
Right or left side while resting?
Both sides with both pregnancies.
Clumsy or Graceful during pregnancy?
With Wyatt: Didn’t notice.
With this Baby: Clumsy.
Palms up or palms down (when asked to show your hands)?
With Wyatt: I can't remember for sure, but I feel like it was palms up.
With this Baby: Palms up.
Has the husband put on weight?
Derek hasn’t put on weight with either pregnancy.
Picking up a single key by the round side or skinny side?
With Wyatt: ? Can't remember for sure. Probably round side, because that’s the side I always grab first.
With this Baby: Round side.
Are the age and year of conception both odd/even or one odd, one even?
With Wyatt: One odd, one even.
With this Baby:  One odd, one even.
Chinese Gender Chart?
With Wyatt: One chart I tried said boy, and another said girl, so I'm not sure which one was the true gender chart.
With this Baby: Once again, one chart says boy, another says girl!  I think that definitely proves it in my mind that internet Chinese gender charts cannot be trusted.

And that about wraps it up!  If you haven't voted in the gender poll yet, you now have all the information, so vote to the left!

I really like your new look Callie :)
I'm so not in the pregnant/mamma stage yet, but it's fun to guess boy/girl and wonder... :D Whatever this bub is, God's got it all planned!

I'm guessing girl for you, based on how you're carrying :) I carried W low and E high. I pray everything goes well with your ultrasound and that your little one cooperates!

The only old wives tale that worked for me was how the heartbeat sounded. With a boy it sounded like a galloping horse, and with a girl it sounded more like the swish of a washing machine. ;) Love the new colors. Just FYI: The font size for your poll title shows up suuuuuper tiny. Not sure if it's just my computer, though. :)

love this! I definitely think you're carrying a bit higher with this one! Almost all the old wives' tales said I should be having a boy...apparently God had other plans for Little Miss Elyse!

Jessica said...

I love the new blog look!

You are too cute!! Well I'd already guessed boy in your poll earlier but now I'm not so sure..perhaps you're having a girl?? I'm super curious to know what you yourself think you're having;) Can't wait to find out next week! God bless!

Melanie said...

Interesting! I'm going to go out on a limb and say 'girl'..just cause your carrying a little higher this time and with what you said about the heartrate too (cause Makayla's was like that when we heard it too). Can't wait to find out the REAL results though..lol!
