What Will It Be?

It's been super fun playing for Team Green this pregnancy.  I knew I was having a girl with Isabella and it was so much fun to plan out her nursery and pick out frilly little clothes and dresses and decide on a name, but I also love the not knowing.

It has most certainly saved me some cash money not being able to buy a ton of clothes.  There's not a lot of options out there for gender neutral clothing.  Mostly everything is beige, white, or yellow.  It's also been fun dreaming up both scenarios for a boy or a girl.

And considering all of the pregnancy related things that annoy me:  comments about how big I've gotten, or how I've really "popped" or the stranger belly touches.  The one thing that never aggravates me is when people guess if it's a boy or a girl and the reason why they think that.

Most people think it's a boy because:

I'm carrying differently, out front and not wide, like I did with Isabella (apparently I was a wide beast and no one told me)

My face didn't change

My stomach is very round like a basketball

My nose didn't spread

Some people think it's going to be a girl because:

I'm craving sweets

The heart rate has been above 140

My skin changed

My hair didn't get thicker

I seem like a "girl mom"

I like all the reasons.  I think they're all fun!

What do you all think Mrs. Petrillo is?  Any particular reason.

Here's my most recent belly pic:

I'd love to hear what you think!

You are looking stunning!

As to what Mrs P actually is I'm going to say a boy ... for no particular reason :) Can't wait to find out.

Boy! No particular reason why except for that I'm a girl mom then boy mom and I think you will be, too. I'm so excited to find out!!

My guess is boy, but for no particular reason... Maybe just hoping you get to have one of each?

You look fabulous! So I am going to say boy. My husband's grandmother always said you glow if you are having a boy. She got all of mine right.

I'm just going to say girl, cause it's fun! I have one girl and one boy and I found out both times but it was still a fun surprise at 20 weeks to know what that early kicker was!
