It's a....

The old wives tales said Girl. Your voted ended in a tie. What is the baby's gender?

It's a...

That's right! We're having a boy!

We announced to family and friends with the above canvas painted blue. All three of us, Selah included, helped paint the canvas blue using a different shade for each of us. We will later put his name on it (when we decide on the final name) and use the canvas in his room. 

Selah's getting a brother!

OWT Results

Tomorrow we will find out if we will be having another little girl or if I need to start gathering little boy things. The final tally for the Old Wives Tales (OWT) is:

Girl- 8
Boy- 5

Winner- GIRL

We'll see tomorrow if that is right. Be sure to cast your final vote in the poll in the upper left corner before midnight tonight. And no. I have not voted.

OWT: Necklace Over Head

The OWT says for you to have someone hold a necklace over your head to see which way it swings (similar to the OWT done a couple of days ago). If it swings back and forth, it means boy. In a circle means girl.

T held the necklace over my head and he says it swung in a circle and swung back and forth. Little help was that. But when I tried it to myself (with a mirror), I saw the same thing. It starts with a small circle or two, then starts swinging back and forth. This was a really close one, but I'm going to say it swings back and forth more than a circle. This give an OWT point to boy!

Girl- 8, Boy- 5

OWT: Bread

Today's OWT is another food related tale about the heels of bread.

I've never liked to eat the heels. I will usually even skip the piece next to the heel. I just don't like it and I still don't. Seriously, who does?

The tale from those old wives says that if you enjoy eating the heel of bread while pregnant, you are going to have a boy. If you prefer the middle, it's a girl. So, in this case, girl it is!

Girl-  8, Boy- 4

OWT: Wedding Ring Gender Test

You use a pin, needle, or wedding ring and attach it to a thread or strand of hair. Hold the dangling item over the belly. If the needle or wedding ring swings in a strong circular motion, you will be having a girl. If it moves in a to and fro motion like a pendulum, you will be having a boy. You can also try this over the wrist instead of the belly.

I did this one today, over belly and over wrist. Both of them swung strongly in a circular motion. I's say that means Girl

Girl- 8, boy- 4

OWT: Feet

Pre-pregnancy, I could always shock T by putting my feet on him under the warm covers. They were always like ice! Now, they are still cold, but if anything, they are now warmer.

The OWT says that if your feet get colder, then it means you are having a boy. The same? Girl. I'd say this is a point for girl.

Girl- 7, Boy- 4

OWT: Hands

I read what the instructions for this OWT (but not how to interpret the results) and asked T to ask me to show him my hands. When he did, I showed him my hands palm down. Then I read the results.

The OWT says that if you show your hands palm up, it means baby is a girl. Palm down, boy. Looks like I got another point for boy!

Girl- 6, Boy- 4
