I'm not feeling creative enough to get silly on a title.

.... I guess I should update this thing. I'm currently 13 weeks pregnant. The morning sickness thing, for the most part, is over... but I still get super sick when I brush my teeth in the morning. I can live through it, though. I'm trying to decide whether or not to find out the sex of the baby. I'm thinking I should so it will be easier to get ready for him/her, but then again it's like peeking at a Christmas present before it's time to open it. What do you think about that?

On the other hand, I've heard all the wives tales about how to tell if it's a girl or a boy... like the heartbeat thing. The wives tale says that girls have a faster heartbeat than boys, so the faster the heartbeat, the more likely its a girl. Well... my sister-in-law said that my niece's heartbeat was low throughout the entire pregnancy, and she was a girl.... my mom also said that my little brother's heartbeat was high and that they told her at the doctor's office that there was an 80% chance that he would be a girl.....and he wasn't. My baby's heartbeat is 170 bpm. If the wives tale was true, it'd be a girl.

Then again, a friend at work analyzes handwriting. Her claim to fame is that she can read your handwriting and tell if it's a boy or a girl. She's hardly ever wrong. She read my handwriting and said I'm going to have a boy.

So now if I decide to find out by ultrasound what sex the baby is, I guess I can prove one or the other of them wrong. What to do, what to do.

I would want to know what the sex is. I would want all the preparation time waiting for him/her to come. But that's me. I'm the person who always peaked at the Christmas presents and didn't regret it.

I agree. I found out with both of mine. 9 months of waiting is not my idea of a fun time. And right in the middle of the pushing and pain and IVs is not a good time to be disappointed that it's not a girl. I love my boys, but I want a pink one. She'd end up a tomboy, but at least she'd be pink on the inside.

Nope. No word yet. Dance away.

It most definitely was the dance. Thanks a million.
