A GRANDMA, A GRANDPA, AN AUNT AND 4 UNCLES...OH MY!!!

We Are Having A Grandbaby!!  Oh. My. Word!  
Yep, I'll be bloggin'.  Just know that right now!

Okay, the stuff to know... There will be random pictures throughout this post because I haven't been blogging, but I still want the pictures to print in our Annual Family Hard Cover Book that I order each year from Blog-To-Print.  Please just bear with me on this, and Kids...I'll try to write a little not about what the picture is about, even though it has nothing to do with the new grandbaby! LOL

Becca and Kazz are due April 2nd but the baby measured big so we'll know more 
October 15th after the next ultra-sound.

We might even get to find out the gender of the baby at that point!! 


GUESSES SO FAR...
BRIAN - GIRL
SHELLY (ME) - GIRL
BRISE - GIRL
VINZE - BOY
DAXX - BOY
KOLE - BOY
JAIBRIAN - GIRL 






Knowing this, Becca and I have been doing a little "research" on the Internet.  There are old-wives-tales that help expecting mothers try to guess the gender of the baby.  There are A LOT of old-wives-tales!  Becca did 16 of them and will be taking an Intelligender test this week.  So, here are the results of the "tests" and Becca's results are under each in Red. 




1. Cold Feet = Boy 
GIRL
2. Wedding Ring Over Belly w/ String Circle = Girl and Back/Forth = Boy
GIRL
3. Carrying High = Girl
GIRL
4. Dry Hands = Boy
GIRL
5. 2nd Trimester Cravings - Salty = Boy  Sweet = Girl
BOY
6. Look under eyelid at the white of the eye.  
If there is a V shaped vein under RIGHT eye = Girl  Under LEFT eye = Boy
GIRL
7. Fat legs = Boy  Still Fit legs = Girl
GIRL
8.  More moody = Girl  Regular Moodiness = Boy
GIRL
9. Lunar Age Chinese Results...click here
GIRL
10. They say girls suck beauty from the mom, so getting acne or dry face = Girl  Glowing and pretty = Boy
GIRL
11.  More Clumsy = Boy
BOY
12.  Sleep on right side = Girl   Left side = Boy
GIRL

13.  Father gains weight = Girl
GIRL
14. Right Breast is bigger than the other =  Boy 
      Left Breast is bigger = Girl
GIRL
15. More Headaches?  = Boy
GIRL
16. Have husband go into a room and put a Fork under a pillow and a Spoon under a different Pillow.
Go into the room and sit on a pillow.  If you sit on the Fork you're having a Boy and if you sit on the Spoon you're having a Girl.
GIRL

The Wives-Tales Results are IN!!  
14 = GIRL  
2 = BOY




We Shall See!!

During all of this fun, I remembered an old wives tale that is supposed to predict how many children a person will have, and the gender of each child, for any person.  You hold a large sewing needle, hanging from a piece of thread, over a person's wrist.  If the needle goes in a circle it means "girl" and if it goes back and forth, it means "boy".  You hold the needle over the person's wrist until it comes to a complete stop.  It may go around, stop, go back and forth, stop and so on until it comes to a complete stop.  

I did this with everyone in the family and here are the results.  

KAZZ = Girl, Girl, Boy
BECCA = Girl, Girl, Boy
BRISAN = No Children
VINZE = Girl, Girl, Boy, Boy, Girl (Holy Macaroni!!)
DAXX = No Children
KOLE = Girl
JAIBRIAN = Boy

I cannot WAIT to read this in the future to see if it is at all accurate!!

WOW! I came across your blog researching some "Catholic AHG stuff" and LOVE IT!!! Congratulations on your expected grandparenthood :) And welcome to Catholicism (a couple years late, but better late than never, right?) I love your post that refutes some of the common misconceptions about Catholicism and bookmarked it. I have people I need to share it with ;)

Anyway, I am commenting because if you are on Facebook, I want to invite you to 'Like' the American Heritage Girls National Catholic Committee Page. I stumbled upon your blog because of AHG posts, and spent 30 minutes reading other - wonderful - posts! (still have not read an AHG post yet, so I am hoping your experiences have all been wonderful :) )

Back to work for me!

Sincerely,
Marybeth Slocumb
