Baby Graybeal // Gender Predictions

Today is the day that we have been (very) eagerly awaiting for weeks now…
We finally find out whether we’re having a baby boy or baby girl!!
To say that we’ve been looking forward to this is an understatement – it’s something that I’ve thought about literally every single day since finding out I was pregnant! But by the time you read this post, Cameron and I will likely be at the ultrasound or already know the big news, provided baby cooperates that is! I’m exactly 20 weeks pregnant today, so I feel pretty confident that they should be able to determine the gender without too much difficulty, but fingers crossed that everything goes smoothly!
I mentioned in my last bumpdate post that I was debating about what to do about the whole “gender reveal” thing. In the end, we decided that as fun as a party would be, it’s just not the right thing for us to do given how chaotic this month is for us already. Instead, Cameron and I are finding out at the appointment today (eeeeeek!), and then we’re going to share the news with our families this afternoon. However, we are planning doing something special to reveal the news here on the blog…but that’s not going to happen today. Whomp whomp. Sorry to keep y’all in suspense, but I wanted us to have some time to celebrate the news more privately for a day first before making it public. 
But definitely check back here for the big announcement tomorrow!
In the meantime, I thought it would be fun to share what all the old wives’ tales have to say before we officially find out! Even though they’re not accurate, I’m pretty sure most women use these to try and figure out what they’re having, and I’ve been no different. Plus, everyone I know seems to have their own opinion on whether I’m having a boy or girl based on how my pregnancy has been going so far, and it’s been fun to hear everyone’s guesses! I have to admit, I totally got the idea for this post from my fellow mama-to-be Katie (thanks girl!) – it was such a cute idea that I couldn’t resist doing it too! 
The old wives’ tales seem to point in favor of a boy, and in the beginning, I totally thought it was a boy for sure. However, the past few weeks I’ve been getting the vibe that it’s a girl! I actually had a dream that we were at our ultrasound and they told us it was a girl and my sister-in-law just had a dream this week that we were having a girl, so I think that’s what’s making me lean that way. Cam is still thinking boy for sure at this point, but (obviously) we’ll both be thrilled either way. Feel free to weigh in and give me your guess in the comments, and then come back tomorrow to see if you’re right! 🙂
