Maybe we're having another girl in May. Maybe it's a boy. Care to guess? Take the poll on the right through noon next Wednesday, December 10th. We have a Level II ultrasound in the next week and a half and just Maybe we'll have an answer. The outcome is a big one. As of now our home is equally balanced. We have 2 cats, 1 boy, 1 girl. We have 2 kids, 1 boy, 1 girl and of course 1 Mom & 1 Dad. I think I know, but I'm not telling until we know for sure.

The following old wives tales are true for me and call for a boy:
You are craving salty or sour foods
You are craving protein -- meats and cheese (what am I NOT craving?)
Your feet are colder than they were before pregnancy (it is cold out)
Your hands are very dry (I do wash them 50 million times a day)
You are having headaches (got one now)
You add your age at the time of conception and the number for the month you conceived and the sum is an even number

Yet these are true too, and they call for a girl:
Your baby's heart rate is at least 140 beats per minute
You are craving sweets (ridiculously)
You crave orange juice (every morning)
You don't look quite as good as normal during pregnancy (dang)
You are moodier than usual during pregnancy (Mark, no comments please)
Your face breaks out more than usual (yuck)
You refuse to eat the heel of a loaf of bread (always have)
Your pillow faces south when you sleep
The Chinese gender chart calls for a girl (it was right for Alexander, wrong for Sophie)

I can account for 3 girl votes and 1 boy. I wonder who else voted?
