So.. I'm going NUTS.

The affectionately named "honeymoon trimester". Your belly is getting bigger and you start to feel your first baby kicks. Are you having a boy or a girl?

Oh geez. Its all over the place. Hopefully this week flies by to kill time so you will be that much closer to knowing. I did the baking soda test too. At the beginning at around 7wks it resulted in boy but at around 13wks it was right. Maybe you have to wait for the babies horomones to really kick in???

How do you do that test? Can you do it just in a little paper cup or something?

I would do it in a clear cup so you can see the reaction. Take a table spoon of baking soda and place it at the bottom of the cup. Then fill her up. If the reaction is crazy and fizzes like soda then its a boy if it doesnt do very much at all its a girl. The idea behind is girls shouldnt make a reaction.

Alright. I posted a pic on a website where this girl guesses ramzi...and she said its smack in the middle. Thats what tech said too. Dagnabbit!

Dh had me do baking soda test and it didnt fiz. He also had me redo the thread test but with a needle. It went in circles. Then he tried ring on it and it did circles.

Well geeze i dunno. Dh swears its a girl. I have a feeling ill never have anything but a boy...but maybe because i want a daughter so bad? Doh i dunno.

Two more weeks to wait now... ahhh always the tww. Lol!

I did my baking soda test right before my 20wk scan and it fizzed all over the place lol. I had a girl but the results were boy. Your ring and needle tests are girl results. I'm going to say it's a girl. My ring and thread has not ever been wrong and I'm pregnant with #5. I think the baking soda results just vary depending on how well hydrated someone is. I'm not usually a superstitious person at all and these are all for fun, but..... I'm going with the ring :D

Yeah I don't know what to think! I'm usually not too superstitious but every time one of these "tests" shows one thing or the other I end up believing it until I do the next one teehee.

We did a locket on a chain and it went in a circle.
Then a few days later we did a ring on thread and it did back and forth.
Then last night he wanted to do the needle and thread and it went in circle. Then he put the ring on the thread and it did circles as well.

What in the!? lol

I'm trying to have an educated guess but I just don't know! Even with that darn Ramzi theory... of course this babay would have to be right in the middle just to confuse me more! lol

I had a dream last night that if It was a girl what my reaction would be... and I was literally jumping up and down and running down my driveway like a crazy person. lol

Boy I suppose lol That's what I'm used to. Something does feel different with this one though. This pregnancy has been 100% diff from the boys. I had morning sickness.. not very long but it was horrible feeling. I didn't have that before. I have headaches ALL the time like every day and that's new. My bbs didn't get big or feel anything with the boys and this time around that was my first clue I was pregnant they hurt so bad... and still hurt bad. Also, the left one is a "monster" DH says lol.

At first it was girl. And every other day it's girl. But it's almost like I feel boy because both other times I thought girl and it was boy soooo... I just think maybe I'm thinking it's impossible to have a girl lol

I SO wish I had kept a journal of those two so I could remember what the heart rates where and what my symptoms were...but nope... I wasn't that smart lol

Really though mark my words. If it is a girl... I will be dancing in the streets... seriously. I'll take a photo to prove it lol!

Haha your too cute. I had a gut feeling I was having a girl and I REALLY wanted a girl. I told DH that if it were a boy id actually suffer a loss. haha. Im crazy I know. When the tech told us its a girl I had a panic attack on the table and started shaking. I was so happy. So I know what you mean about going nuts. I will keep my fingers crossed for you. Sending you GIRL VIBES!!

I'll send you some girl vibes too!! Everyone needs to experience a daughter! I can also definitely relate to you obsessively looking into everything that might give you a clue - I did the exact same thing :) This is also my third baby, although I do have one of each. I wanted another girl and honestly REALLY felt like this one was a girl. At my 13 week NT scan the tech told me that she was very sure that it was a girl. I went home and googled how accurate it was at 13 weeks, and of course got lots of mixed answers. I went back to the Dr a week later to have a standard blood test, and I asked the nurse if they had a test that can tell gender. She said that indeed they do and I just had to upgrade the test! This particular blood test actually separates baby DNA from yours and they sequence it to check for trisomy 18, 21, and a few others. They also get to find out with a very high certainty (99%) what gender the baby is. So I felt like I couldn't wait any longer and did it! It took 2 weeks to get the results (I know, another 2ww!) and they called and told me that not only is baby completely healthy, but baby is also a SHE :) I cried. I would highly recommend it if you can swing it! I can't remember the exact name of the test, but I'm sure if you mention it to your OB, they will know exactly what I'm talking about! Good luck and I hope you get exactly what you are hoping for!!
