18 weeks: boy or girl?

Posted on

I really don’t have much to tell you as far as an update.  I’m made for pregnancy, apparently.  How ironic is that, when it took so long to get there? LOL!  I know pregnancy is killer for a lot of women, but it’s been a cake walk for me by comparison.  I’m very thankful for that and try not to take it for granted.

Aren’t you jealous of how perfectly we keep our lawn manicured?!

We will be finding out the gender of our baby this week!  What do you think we’re having?

I think boy.  I have always wanted a girl, ever since I was a little girl myself (probably has something to do with having a little sister six years younger than me that I already felt like was my own baby, so I feel more like I know what I’m doing when it comes to raising girls since I’ve been through it already), but am not expecting one at all. You guys will have to help me figure out what in the world I’m going to do with a boy if it really turns out to be one. LOL!  Guy stuff is like a foreign language to me, but I suppose I shall learn along the way if I have to. Dennis would prefer a boy for the same reasons I’d prefer a girl, because that’s what he is and what he knows.  So I suppose either way, there will be at least one parent that sort of knows what to do with our little cupcake.

Then again, you never know what you’re going to get with a child–every person is unique.  Knowing the sex tells you very little!  My friend, Suzie, wanted a boy because she likes to hunt and fish and thought that she would get along better with a boy and they could enjoy those things together.  She was blessed with a boy, but he doesn’t like to hunt or fish…he likes video games!  She said if she had a girl, she’d probably love to hunt and fish and have tattoo’s like her mama. LOL!  Chances are if I had a girl, she’d be an athlete and play the drums, and if I had a boy, he’d love to cook and sing with me.  You just never know.  I guess I need to take this one day at a time here and not freak out about the sex of our baby.  I’m just blessed and thankful to have one at all. :)

Pretending I remember something from my early ballet days…which ended 22 years ago. But look, I can almost pass for a non-pregnant fat woman in this pose – my belly almost went away! haha

Want to have some fun?  Cast your vote of boy or girl in the comments and I’ll draw a winner from those that guess correctly.* The winner can choose between a $20 Amazon gift certificate (this option is open internationally) Snickerdoodle Blondies, Chipotle Honey Roasted Peanuts, or my sister’s homemade soap bars for their prize (the quantity will be as much as I can fit in a small Priority mail box). Baby’s gender and the winner will be announced next Monday!

*I will also be drawing from votes put in by friends/family in person and on my personal Facebook page.

  7. I have lots of pregnant friends this year. I am declaring this the year of the girl!! Are you going to find out what it is before you deliver? If so, you should have a name contest too! How fun!

    Dennis seems the type who would joke about names. My husband wanted our girl to be named Mary Chris. Our last name is Smith. Wouldn’t that have been funny. We also have a Jacob and my brother calls my other son Jingleheimer. (Jon, Jacob, Jingleheimer Smith) Crazy family of ours.

    • Yes, we want to know and will find out this week as long as baby cooperates. I have thought about a name contest but we’ll see. Your husband is too funny! Dennis does come up with the awfulest names – at least your hubby was clever! Den just comes up with names like Gird or Argamus. lol – those aren’t actual names he came up with, I was just trying to make ups something as ugly as what he invents. lol

  10. Oh V – you look adorable! I’ve never had the gift to be able to tell what gender a gal is carrying, by the way she’s carrying ‘it’. I’m gonna guess a boy (cause I’m usually wrong!) and hope for a girl. And you’re giving prizes???? WOWZERS! This is such fun for ALL of us! I think maybe because you ‘labored’ too long to get to this point, you just bypassed the ‘bad’ stuff of pregnancy sickness. =) Take good care Hon – I’m sure you are enjoying every single minute of pregnancy bliss. Hugs!! XO

  13. I am guessing girl! I know you’ll do great with either. The first year will ease you into the gender because they’re pretty much neutral at that point, right? ;) …Except for the fact that little boys will pee everywhere when the diaper is off. Do you have names picked for either?

  17. Pregnancy does agree with you as you look radiant! I say it’s a girl! I have one boy and one girl. Trust me when I tell you that you will know what to do with a boy. I have a special relationship with both of my children and feel equally as close with both of them.

  21. My guess is a girl. As you said though, you will love either one and do what comes naturally with them. You like to go swimming, walking and bike riding…boys love all that. But my guess leans towards a girl :)

  22. You look beautiful :) And sometimes just feeling so blessed is enough to make you change how you feel about pregnancy issues.

  24. I think you will have a girl! I didn’t have maternity insurance when I was pregnant, so the one and only ultrasound I got Hannah was facing the wrong way and they couldn’t tell the gender. So I had a c-section, and when I woke up I asked what I had and a nurse said “a baby girl.” I fell back asleep and when I woke up, I couldn’t remember if it was a dream so I asked what I had again, and the nurse said ” a GIRL.” The third time I asked she yelled “YOU HAD A GIRL!!”

    Ha, makes me laugh thinking about it.

  34. I enjoyed both of my pregnancies too. It was like a natural high for 10 months! Because you are more rounded in the abdomen just like I was for my first pregnancy, I am going to say it’s a Boy! You look happy and lovely!!

    I think a boy. You seem to be carrying out front. I wanted a girl so bad, but I got a boy. He was the first boy in my family, so it was different. But I loved it. (I got ganged up on a lot though…lol) As long as the baby and you are healthy it won’t matter!
