The Friday Five

The Friday Five:  BABY EDITION

So, some of you may be sick of hearing about my pregnancy and others of you are eagerly awaiting to here if baby is a boy or girl.  Well after the 19 week ultrasound, we're pretty sure that it's either a boy or a girl...  But let's list off the Friday Five with how the Old Wives Tale's stack up.

1.)  If your baby's heartbeat is over 140, then it's a girl.  The heartbeat started out at 140, went all the way up to 160 at one point, and has stayed pretty steady at 145.

2.)  If you're carrying your baby low, then it's a boy.  I'm carrying very low, I was in maternity jeans during the first trimester, because baby was right at my pant line!

3.)  If your skin is breaking out, then it's a girl.  I haven't had this much acne since I had bad bangs and was in middle school!

4.)  If you are craving sour food, then it's a boy.  I love pineapple, alot.  I can eat a whole can in one sitting.

5.)  So am I having a boy or a girl?

The answer is...

Have you guessed it?

Did the Old Wives Tales give it away?


We thought she was a boy, it's true.  But the proof was in the pictures! (Sorry, not putting my daughter's lady parts on the internet, but you can see her face and legs!) I guess that explains my acne, the heartbeat, and the fact that somehow I can write a really good emotionally angsty teenage girl right now... I think I'm in for a treat in the future!

I will keep everyone posted on updates and until then my baby girl and I are going to keep trucking along on our editing!  (Yes, she helps by kicking me, so I can't sleep and then get up to edit.)


  1. OMG! I was right! Congrats, Magan! I'm so happy for you!

  2. Congratulations! I'm so happy and excited for you!

  3. Thanks everyone for the well wishes! I may be in for a treat once she's a teenager if she's anything like me!

  4. Congratulations Magan, glad everything is going so well.

    H! :)


You should leave me a comment. It would probably make me smile and then I will probably comment back. Unless you are a spambot. Then I will probably just ignore you.
