Happy Birthday Reegan!

| March 26th, 2012 | → 1 Comments |

Reegan had a birthday on Saturday!  We tried to do a swim party because our apartment says the pool is a year-round “heated” pool…yeah that is the biggest lie ever.  That pool is not heated, it is so cold it’s not even funny.  Funny how I tried a swim party anyways. Haha.  The girls still love to play in the water even though it is so cold so it was fun for them and that’s all that matters.  I have some pictures to show you her over the years and maybe the goofy pictures you haven’t seen of our little goofer Reegan.  The last couple pictures are for Aunt Nikki.  She loved her gifts. Thank you everyone for the presents!



Baby update…

Well its a girl…I guess that is all we can make.  I am getting so sick of the color pink right now.  Haha  We (and when I say we I mean me mostly) are hoping that she will come out and be my child because the other two are so clearly Brett’s children.  I am afraid to hope for even that though because the hope for a boy got shot down real quick. Haha


Vote now!

The suspense is torturous: am I having a boy or a girl?  It is killing me!  I feel like I have been prego forever (seeing as how I have known since week one!!!) and still have no belly or anything to show for it.  An ultrasound technician can tell me, but not until March 23rd so let’s see what you think.  Until the Big Reveal, here are some entertaining, sometimes weird ways to predict your baby’s sex.  Maybe this will help those of you who like old wives tales.  Maybe they will help you with your vote if you don’t have a gut instinct or a sixth sense about these things.

I found a ton of old wives tales and random ways to see what the gender is.  I think its for people who are not finding out what they have because their are a lot about the shape of your belly and things that you need to be further along to tell but oh well its still fun.  Enjoy and Vote!

Boy or Girl Quiz

How are you carrying?  Low or high

My answer: Low

What they say:(They being the old wives):  if you’re carrying high, break out the pink. If your bump is low, you’re carrying a boy.

What do you crave?  Salty or Sweet

My answer:  Well to be quite honest I eat it all love me some sweets and love me some salty and I don’t really crave much during pregnancies.

What they say:  Craving ice cream every single day? Some people believe this means it’s a girl. If you have to have salty or sour stuff, then it’s a boy.

My baby’s heart rate is:  Above 140 beats per minute or Below 140 beats per minute

My answer: To be honest I didn’t pay much attention.  I have only had one appointment and I was just enjoying hearing the heartbeat but my best guess of remembering would be above 140 but I can’t be sure.

What they say:   According to legend, 140+ beats per minute indicates a girl, and below 140 a boy.

The color of my urine is:  Dull Yellow or Bright Yellow

My answer: Really…is it really ever bright, wait is it ever dull?  I think I am confused.

What they say:  If it is bright yellow, you will have a little boy.  If your urine is a dull yellow, plan on a girl.

Which direction does your pillow face: South or North

My answer: Um…West.

What they say:  Your pillow faces north when you sleep its a boy, South is a girl.

Was the month of your conception: Even or Odd

My answer: Odd

What they say:  Legend has it that the Mayans determined a baby’s sex by looking at the mother’s age at conception and the year of conception. If both are even or odd, it’s a girl. If one’s even and one’s odd, it’s a boy.

Are your feet: Colder or Not colder than before.

My answer: Colder…I think, they are very cold lately

What they say:  Are your feet colder now that you are pregnant?  If so, you just might be having a boy.  If your feet have stayed the same before pregnancy and during, you’re having a little girl.

Does the hair on your legs grow:  The same as before pregnancy or Faster

My answer: The same(who pays attention to that?)

What they say:  If the hair on your legs has been growing at record speeds, you might be having a boy.

Do you eat the heel of a loaf of bread?  No way!  or  Love it!

My answer: Well I always have so yeah.

What they say:  If you eat the ends of bread, it’s a boy.  If you eat the middle of the load, it’s a girl.

Is your skin more clear or less clear since getting pregnant?

My answer: Haven’t had any breakouts for a little while(knock on wood).

What they say:  If you’re breaking out like crazy, blame it on your girl babe. The belief goes that girls steal their mother’s beauty, hence, those annoying zits.

You tend to sleep in which position?

My answer: On my side, mostly left I think.  Although lately I have tried really hard to sleep on my back while I still can.

What they say:  If a pregnant woman prefers to lay on her left side, she’s having a boy.  If she prefers resting on her right side, she’s having a girl.

Have you found that one of your breasts is larger than the other?

My answer: I think i’m sharing way too much but no I haven’t noticed a difference.

What they say:  If a pregnant woman’s left breast is larger than the right breast, she’s having a girl.  If the right breast is larger, it’s a boy.

Have you been experiencing any nausea?

My answer: It just ended now that I hit second trimester.  Just so you all know my pregnancy history because I know a lot of people go off of nausea.  I was so so sick with Kyla and not once with Reegan.

What they say:  Sick as a dog during the first trimester — or still? Signs indicate you’re having a girl. Little or no morning sickness points to a boy.

Has Dad gained weight?

My answer: Really…the only time in the 6 years of being with Brett (5 married 1 dating) he has never ever gained weight except that short time we lived with his parents and he had his mommy’s cooking or something.  Don’t ask me how it happened because I still don’t know.

What they say:  If the dad-to-be gains weight while you are pregnant, it’s a girl.  If he doesn’t gain weight, you’re having a boy.

Mom’s Beauty

Basically you are having a girl if your beauty disappears during pregnancy.  It is said that the girl “steals” the mother’s beauty.  If you think that pregnancy has never made you look more beautiful, you might just be having a little boy.  I will give you the most recent picture of me and let you decide.  Again I am not too far along so I don’t know how many of these work because as most of you know I really feel this one.  I have not let my face be in most or any pictures of both my pregnancy with Kyla and with Reegan.


Do you feel like your nose is growing and getting wider?  If so, you might be having a boy.

My answer:  haha!  Well again I will let you look at the picture but…haha really!
