16 Weeks: It's a... !!

Thanks for participating in my little poll! Since I know that this is the information you're dying to know, here are the very scientific results:

Baby H is a...
  • Boy !! 40%
  • Girl !! 45%
  • One of each 15%
  • Hmmm, I haven't decided 0%

What am I supposed to make of these results, people?? This basically tells me nothing!!


Well, here's our bean! The pictures today were not the best :(
I was a little bummed that I couldn't see more profile or details. The little booger looks kinda squished in there! I guess he/she could take it up with management..


The doc says...

We're having...




Yeah, that's right. He's 95% sure it's a girl. What kind of answer is that? Doesn't he get paid the big bucks to know for SURE??? Bllaaaaahhhhh!

Oh well. In all likelihood there's a mini me kickin' around in my belly. We were a little disappointed to not know for SURE sure, but what can you do? Ground her? I already tried that.

Everything looks great and on schedule, though, so we're very thankful for that! I don't really feel like I've grown much yet, so I have to say I'm relieved to see that she's right on track!

Now to the belly shot.

You would not believe how hard it is to stage a bathroom photoshoot all by yourself.
This is frame 17 of 41:

16 Weeks

The doctor did ask me if I'm eating enough.. said I haven't gained much weight (3 LBs, kids) and kind of gave me the stink eye and some fatherly schpeel about how sometimes the "thin" girls can be a little vain and don't gain enough weight. I almost bonked him on the head with that ultrasound wand but hubby saw it coming and held me back.

VAIN? Are you kidding me?

Okay, okay, it wasn't as bad as all that, but I was a little defensive. I've been trying to eat really healthy and more frequently and I've certainly NOT been dieting! A girl just can't win.

So now I'm off to do what any hormonal pregnant gal would do- head to my favorite Mexican joint and go to town.


  1. Well, I would say 95% is pretty darn close to 100, so I am going with it! Yay!!!! She will be so pretty! And, can you imagine a doctor telling you to eat more? You are so lucky.

  2. A GIRL!!!!! If someone told me I had "a 95% chance of winning the lottery," I would be redoing my kitchen faster than you could say "imported Italian marble tiles". So,,,,,Start buying pink, girl!!

    Screw the doctor! Really!!?!?! He is a M-A-N!! You look great (kinda like me in high school after eating Taco Bell). She will grow and get bigger so don't worry about it! Enjoy!! And for your own good, I advise you (as a parent already) to please consider the Janie and Jack sale items. So. Cute.

    CONGRATS!!!! A GIRL!!!!

  3. congrats chick! little girlies are so fun!you look amazing!

  4. Thanks you guys! :)

    happy_wife- OHMYWORD! I hadn't heard of the Janie and Jack line and it's aDORable! Thanks for the tip!!

  5. Congrats!! That is exciting...95% is pretty high so I'll be they are right. When will you be able to have another ultrasound? Hopefully that one will be 100%!


I ♥ your comments! Strange or lovely or somewhere in between, lay 'em on me!
