Place your bets!

Only six weeks to go until we meet the newest member of our family. As per my previous pregnancy we have opted to have a 'surprise', so as the weeks pass I am getting more and more excited wondering what we will get.

Everyone has a theory, whether based on their own experience, an old wives tales or maybe intuition.

So join in the fun, get your thinking/guessing/betting caps on... place your bests and give me your prediction.

To help your analysis here are some 'facts' that people usually use when sharing their wisdom with me:

  • I am carrying pretty high and straight out to the front

  • I have put on about 7-8kgs

  • I had morning sickness for the first 3 months or so

  • I am what people consider to be very small or compact or "all baby" as I often hear

  • I have not had any food cravings or any specific aversions to foods

  • To me my pregnancy feels pretty much identical to my first (which was a boy)

  • My ob is predicting this baby will be just a bit smaller than my first - hmmm interesting... haha

What's your theory and why, and be sure to let me know if you need any more info ;)


  1. Well, from my experiences and what you have said, I predict the lovely bundle of joy to be a gorgeous BOY....BLUE FOR BOY....did you get that. hehehe....hmmmmmm interesting indeed.

  2. For no real reason I am predicting another boy. :)

  3. I have no idea, but since Mr2 thinks the baby is a girl I will side with him and say a girl.

  4. My inner voice is saying "girl", but it could be just my sense of symmetry (so you have one of each). And I do have a 50% chance of being right!!

  5. Honestly I don't hold to what people say about carrying high, etc. But...both my girls gave me similar pregnancies. So I will be totally un-scientific and say a BOY! Hee hee.

    I'm sure he/she will be gorgeous and will be loved heaps by you and the new big brother. :)

  6. Well when I carried high everyone always said, oh you must be having a boy. And I did, so I guess I'm going to go with boy here!

  7. I predict a beautiful little baby will come out. Everyone predicted wrong for me" ie I was having a small boy who would come early and I got a 4.3kg girl two weeks late. Good luck and I hope it goes well. xx

  8. I think a boy too. You exactly how I was when I had Hudson. This time round I know I am having a girl & it is so different. I was super sick & I am super round & fluidy.
    At the end of the day we all wish for health & happiness. Enjoy the excitement.

  9. Haha, the concensus is that it will be a boy... or a girl...

    LOL, great that is exactly what we are hoping for! Although I still have a strange feeling that it is an octopus!
