i'm curious what you think.
its getting close to the time of pregnancy that our midwife said she could fairly accurately guess the gender of the baby. up to this point, 35 weeks tomorrow, i've thought cheerio is a boy. i've nothing to go on, other than intuition, but that intuition was right with luke. i'm not sure if my intuition is based on my past experience or if it's true intuition. that's not possible for me to determine. but, these pregnancies have been very similar, aside from how tired i've been this go-around.
the old wives' tale says that if the heartrate is faster than 140 its a girl; 140 or slower is a boy. that was also correct with luke. his heartrate consistently was slower than 140.
over the last month, cheerio's heartrate has been 156, 138 and, today, 153.
let me know what you think! vote in the poll on the right and leave a comment below letting me know how you voted. cheerio is due at the end of august, and i'll leave the poll open until he or she is born. there will be a small prize for someone who guesses correctly.
so, go vote!
