Give it your best guess.....I won't hold you accountable if you're wrong!

Let me start this by just saying how unhappy I am with my computer right now. It's acting all kinds of crazy. Now, maybe I'm delusional but I strongly belive that when I push a button on my computer, it should just go ahead and do what it's been programmed to do. Instead, it's freezing up and giving me the "not responding" message. Man, obviously my computer is a boy.....


Anyhoo, the point of this post was to ask you to take a peek at the question to your immediate right. See that little poll? Go ahead, take a wild guess. It's a 50/50 shot that you'll be right.

As for those of you who've voted already....thanks! I must say, I like where the majority of you are going with your "gut" Those of you who voted boy....shame on you! Where is the positive thinking there? With that being said, I thank you for your honesty. I cannot, after all, see who voted what.....you know who you are.

As for me. I have very mixed feelings on the subject. Many have asked if this pregnancy feels different. Well, yeah, but I'm, you know, older now..... I would love to say that I have a feeling it's a girl. I sort of do but cannot tell if that's just my desire or a real "feeling". I fully expect to see a penis on this baby as my track record seems to be chock full of them. Brennen seems to be convinced that he's having a sister so I guess for now, I'll go with that.

There are many things that may lead a superstitious person to believe it's a girl.
1. I've never had a baby born in an odd year. 2009 is definitely NOT an even number.
2. I've never given birth while I am an even age...(I am now and will be in October)
3. Tanner was *supposedly* a girl according to ALL of his numerous ultrasounds and Brennen was born with an undescended testicle. Some may say we're getting closer to NO testicles!
4. I only have a boys name picked out. With Tanner and Brennen, I could only think of girls names...hence the funny trick karma decided to play!

So, vote! Not that your votes will actually SWAY the final result. But it's sort of fun to see who was right and who was wrong. And I fully expect after my ultrasound results that you will all fess up to just how you voted.

I said girl although I am in full boy mode around here. I really am not very good at guessing other people. But good luck. We only had a boys name picked out this time, Kaleb Grant. In the past we have had a definate girls name before the ultrasound and a few boys names that were possibilities. I told the u/s tech that I wanted to see if I could figure it out without her telling me this time. My husband saw that it was a boy from the beginning, but I was just looking for three white lines. So I completely missed the very prominent boy parts.

Voted girl. Because you've totally paid your boy dues. Can't wait to find out!

I said girl just because of the odds are that one has to come along eventually :)

Hi! I haven't voted, but I can tell you from experience that if a sibling consistantly says a baby is of a particular sex, then that's what it is!!!;) Now, I don't want to lead you up the garden path, but, out of ALL our children in our family - mine, my sister's, and my cousins' - all the siblings were correct, and most of them to the point of disgust and annoyance if you suggested otherwise (in my case, when I told my then 4 yr old that the baby could possibly be a girl, he started crying saying "but, I know he's a boy and I know he's Sam"... and he is!!!) I hope God blesses you with the desire of your heart...

I have 3 boys all born on the 7th day and they are all named after people I have known or liked....Devon, old friend from high school; Seth, come on now Seth Green!; and Lucas, ask my wife about that one I had little input into that lol. But seth was supposed to be Ozzy....so we settle for that to be his middle name!
