The Power of 50%

by tinysneakers

Apparently exactly half of you think we should find out whether Baby SoS is a boy or a girl.

Almost 27% say to keep it a surprise, and 11% say find out but don’t tell anyone.

Of course my favorites are the write-in answers:

Gee, I wonder who wrote that last one? Ahem. Winking smile

 

So here’s what I’ll tell you. Our ultrasound is in 1 hour and 9 minutes. We still haven’t made up our minds. I’m predicting we’ll finally come to a decision in about an hour and a half. Winking smile

But until then, let’s have some fun. I love all the old wives’ tales for predicting gender. I’ll give you my answers, then you decide if baby SoS will be wearing pink or blue.

Ready? Go.

You’ve got a 50-50 shot. Smile
Maybe I’ll tell you tomorrow. Maybe I won’t. Maybe I’ll know, maybe I won’t. Winking smile

I can’t vote until I know what side of the country you live on. If you live near the West coast I’m saying boy, but East Coast is girl. That’s just the way I’m seeing trends… 😉

And please FIND OUT and TELL US! =)

I say girl! But the only reason is because I’m having a boy and it seems like everyone else I know is having a boy. This makes me nervous for my son’s future dating options, so someone needs to have some girls 🙂

I think it’s a boy. I don’t know why, I just imagine you with a little boy.

I think it’s a girl! Your old wives tales results are just like mine and I’m having a girl. I hope you do reveal it on the blog, it’s fun to talk about and to refer to the baby as he or she 🙂
