Old Wives Tales Revisited & our Gorgeous new High Chair!

So, I thought that since our gender scan is in the morning it would be fun to go back to the Old Wives Tales and see how they add up now that it’s time to find out.
It’s a boy if:
-You didn’t experience morning sickness in early pregnancy
-Your baby’s heart rate is less than 140 beats per minute
You are carrying the extra weight out front
Your belly looks like a basketball
Your areolas have darkened considerably •
You are carrying low •
You are craving salty or sour foods •
You are craving protein — meats and cheese
Your feet are colder than they were before pregnancy •
The hair on your legs has grown faster during pregnancy •
Your hands are very dry
Your pillow faces north when you sleep •
Dad-to-be is gaining weight, right along with you •
Pregnancy has you looking better than ever •
Your urine is bright yellow in color•
Your nose is spreading •
You hang your wedding ring over your belly and it moves in circles • Haven’t done this one.
You are having headaches
You add your age at the time of conception and the number for the month you conceived and the sum is an even number

It’s a girl if:•
You had morning sickness early in pregnancy •
Your baby’s heart rate is at least 140 beats per minute
Heart rate is ALWAYS above 150
You are carrying the weight in your hips and rear •
Your left breast is larger than your right breast
Your hair develops red highlights •
You are carrying high
Your belly looks like a watermelon •
You are craving sweets •
You are craving fruit •
You crave orange juice
You don’t look quite as good as normal during pregnancy •
You are moodier than usual during pregnancy
Your face breaks out more than usual •
Baby is always very low, even though it has room above
You refuse to eat the heel of a loaf of bread
Your breasts have really blossomed! •
Your pillow faces south when you sleep •
Your urine is a dull yellow color
You hang your wedding ring over your belly and it moves from side to side – haven’t done this one
You add your age at the time of conception and the number for the month you conceived and the sum is an odd number

So, the results are now – Boy 6 and Girl 13. WOAH!!! I still think it’s a boy. Haha. We’ll see in just a few more hours!
And, when we got back from Utah we had a package from Brads dad waiting for us, a new beautiful High Chai (Thanks Rick!) and now that we’ve had some days off Brad had some time to put it together today and I love it! Here are a few pictures that Brad took.

It’s so great because it grows with the baby. It starts out as a High chair and then you can take the plastic cover off at any time and use it for other things, and then it work as a toddler chair, and then you can take the whole tray off and just use it as a chair when the child is old enough. It’s awesome and I love the color!
So, that’s it for today. It’ll probably be kind of late when we post tomorrow as Brad and I will be down in Denver registering after the appointment. Can’t wait!
