the ultrasound

will be March 4th!!! That's less than two weeks away! I can't wait to see my baby and hopefully find out whether I can start buying pink clothes or blue clothes.

So any guesses on the gender?


  1. I usually go by how high the heart rate has been, when they let you hear it. I think girls hearts are faster, if I remember that old wives' tale correctly. It worked with both of my girls. So, I would have to hear that first. I have successfully predicted the gender of all 5 of my older brother's kids, including a set of identical twins. But I think it's the whole close in age, competition thing.

  2. I'm impressed with your prediction skills. I just heard the heartbeat on Tuesday but have no context whether it is fast or not. It didn't seem as fast as the first time we heard it.

  3. How exciting!! I am going to guess - BOY! I can't wait to see the hair color. My cousin has red hair like you and her husband has dark, dark brown. They have a son and a daughter and the boy looks just exactly like the dad with the dark hair and the daughter looks like my cousin with that beautiful red hair - they are all so cute. My brother also has a red-headed son - really pretty red hair. But, his daughter is blonde. Neither my SIL or brother are red-heads, but it comes from my SIL side of the family I guess - and maybe a bit on my side (since my cousin has red hair). Can't wait to see if your baby has your red hair.

    Funny that I was in your dream! Have a good day Katrina - see you later. Kellan

  4. i vote boy...mostly because that's what i want first. also because i feel like there is an overabundance of girl babies right now (although it may just be that my ward has a disproportionate representation) and we need some cute boys to balance it out.

    i'm so excited for you!

  5. Oh, I remember those two weeks . . . they felt like an eternity! Good luck sleeping!

    I'm going to vote girl, mostly because I can only imagine baby girls right now since I'm having one :). It's so strange that one moment, you don't know and the next, you do.

    Also, the baby became so much more real to me once I knew she was "our little girl." So exciting!

  6. I'm going to guess girl - and I really do hope she has your hair!

  7. i'm going to vote/guess for a boy to even things out a bit for isaac!

  8. here, thought you might get a chuckle from these:

    Ways to guess your baby's gender:
    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 in front
    Your belly looks like a basketball
    Your areola 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 too
    Pregnancy has you looking better than ever
    Your urine is a bright yellow in colour
    Your nose is spreading
    If you hang your wedding ring over your belly, it moves in circles
    You are having headaches
    You add your age at the time of conception and the number for the month you conceived the number is even
    It's a girl if:

    You had morning sickness early in pregnancy
    Your baby's heart rate is at least 140 beats per minute
    You are carrying the weight in your hips and rear
    Your left breast is larger than your right breast
    Your hair gets red highlights
    You are carrying high
    Your belly looks like a watermelon
    You crave sweets
    You crave 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
    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 in colour
    If you hang your wedding ring over your belly, it moves from side to side
    If you add your age at the time of conception and the number for the month you conceived the number is odd

    So....which ones have you experienced so far??

  9. Those are funny! I have some symptoms from both lists, so I guess it's a toss up!

  10. I'm guessing boy. You haven't told us what you think it is...

  11. Nicki, that's because I have absolutely no idea!

  12. Definitely a girl. Your guess?

  13. hey, random question(s) - how long had you known Jared before getting engaged? and how did you pull off planning a wedding so fast?!

  14. We met the end of July, got engaged at Thanksgiving, and married in March. So the wedding planning wasn't all that fast. It really doesn't take that long to plan a wedding if you just buckle down and get it done. Get help from your mom or a friend or your fiance! though to help take the pressure off. I don't understand how people take a year to plan a wedding.

  15. I'm guessing boy because it seems like everyone was having girls for a little while and now the trend seems to be changing to boys. Plus, we need to add some boys to the Iverson clan!!!

  16. Oh I am guessing a girl, just because I feel like everyone I know that is pregnant right now are having girls! But if it is a'll love it! FOr some reason I really wanted Jackson to be a girl (I think all the fun accessories and dresses that girls have made it so desirable). But I have loved being the mom to a little boy! They are so fun. You are going to make such a great Mom!

  17. I'm guessing girl, too. For the same reasons - it seems to me like everyone is having girls. So far, all I have or am getting are nieces.
