He She Be and a Giveaway!

Tomorrow is my 20 week prenatal appointment and ultrasound. Eeeek! I am so excited to see our baby again. I can feel movement more and more.

This pregnancy feels different in many ways, but I think most of it is because I don't have time to stop and think about it. Most of the time I forget that I'm pregnant. I would feel bad but I am so excited about this baby that it seems to take away the guilt.

Usually by now many family members and friends would have told me what they predict this baby is going to be. For some reason that hasn't happened this time. When we first found out I had one dear friend tell me that as soon as she heard we were expecting she thought it was a boy.

(Ok. My SIL did tell me that she wanted to say we are having a boy but she thinks we are going to have another girl. But she burned my beans. So she doesn't count.)

But that was it. Until this past week.

I was in Salt Lake City, Utah spending six days with my BFF (by myself I might add!) and she very confidently told me that I am having a boy. Apparently she has felt that way since I told her I'm pregnant.

I, personally, don't have a feeling either way. While I would be delighted with a boy, it scares me at the same time. Abiah is such an easy boy that I'm afraid the next one will be the polar opposite of him. And since I've done (am doing) the girl thing twice it seems easier.

But I want to know what you think.

I posted this a while back and you can use it to help you if you need to.

The giveaway part works this way: In the comment section below tell me what you think Jr is (as in boy or girl for all you funny ones who want to say, "A baby!").

Since there are only two options for a right answer I will take all the entries that guessed correctly and randomly choose one of those names. (So if it is a boy, all those who guessed that way will be entered into the drawing. Just to clarify.)

If we aren't able to find out tomorrow due to a stubborn/shy baby I will just choose one person from all names entered.

My appointment is at 3:30 pm PST so no entries after that time will be counted.

The prize is a Starbucks card and a homemade treat (not edible, btw).

Also, you must leave the comment on the blog (not Facebook) for your entry to count. Also, those of you who want to tell me after we find out that you knew all along what the baby's sex is totally don't count. And you people irritate me.

Sometimes I have a bad attitude.

I will announce the results and the winner tomorrow night!

I'm 50% sure its a boy! =] So that means boy!

Brian & Rachel Davis said...

I keep expecting I'm going to give birth to a boy (no I'm not currently pregnant)... and so far I have two sweet girls. I think you should have a boy so that I have a boy next time. Make sense? To make it more confusing, I guess girl! haha

Andrea said...

I am guessing a boy

Nikki said...

I should automatically be entered into the pool since you already know my guess. BUT I'll post my guess again anyway. Boy.
And, I'm so confident that if I am wrong I will add some goody for you to include in your giveaway. :-)

Let's see if this works.

A. You sure are bossy in your current condition.

B. I love that you said Diana told you in confidence and then posted it to your blog.. It made me chuckle as much as your bossiness did.

And lastly, I think your crop shall bear some nuts. As in, I think you'll need Almond Joys at your shower, as in, I believe Diana is correct as in, yes, you are carrying a boy child IMHO. (I think MB would have thought so.. and so I tried to be as much like her in my comment as possible.) :) (minus the...)
Love you.

Ever since you wrote that you were pregnant again, I thought "This time it's a boy!" But I'm not sure if that is my intuition or if it's just me hoping that Abiah has a little brother to even out the score between boys vs. girls. :-)

Mel Mell said...

lol! Even if you have a bad attitude sometime, at least you're willing to admit it! And really... I love your attitude - you're going to have a girl or a boy and come what may, you're gonna love um'! (with a few more gray hairs maybe but still!!) So... my guess... boy!

Sara said...

well the chances of having a boy after two girls is slim. So I'm saying Girl. No matter what they will be cute.

Hannah said...

Oh dear... I've never been good at this predicting thing, BUT Mom had 2 boys after me and when she was pregnant with Zach, everyone said it was a girl... and then Zach came, and he's a boy, not a girl, so I'm going to say Girl :) (since most everyone else is saying boy;)

Kelly H. said...

I guess boy... and having two of my own I can honestly say.. THEY'RE ALL EASY!! And they're WAYYYYY fun. Girls are adorable, and they've got the whole "dress up" thing going for them... but boys - wow I love them!!

Nikki Walker said...

You are so fun Shiree. What a fun game to play. Lord knows I love my games. I'm gonna have to go with your BFF since I haven't seen you forever (and we live in the same state for crying out loud). I say boy!!!! Gotta even things up you know :)

hannah wynne said...

I'm gonna guess it's a boy ;)

Mindy said...

I am going to guess a girl, that way you and danielle can have girls together!!! Plus it looks like my chances of winning might be higher!!!:)

edna said...

A boy so that Abiah can play airsoft(did i spell it right?) like my hubby here!hehe

LaFonda Dunlap said...

My guess is that you will have a boy! I am every bit as confident as Nikki. But of course I was with you today for the revealing! My best guess is that I am disqualified to guess!
Congrats on our new little grandson!
BTW we love his name!
