Four weeks in one post this time, with the most exciting news so far! Baby is a girl! You may recall last pregnancy we did the Baby Sex Predictors to see if the silly old wives’ tales ways to predict baby’s sex would work. For pregnancy 1, there was a 73% chance baby was a boy – and we ended up with Caleb! This time, there was a 73% change baby is a girl – and the ultrasound agreed! Maybe the tests are more accurate when done collectively? Mom and Dad’s intuition also said girl this time around, so there’s always that 😉
