Under normal circumstances I'd say I told you so. But, as I have told so with such vehemence and frequency already the phrase has lost all meaning. Therefore, I will be replacing it with the phrase, I have informed you thusly.

Re: The Old Wives Tales

I haven't done any of these yet and probably won't, because we already know. We had our dating ultrasound on Thursday and it turns out that I'm actually 12 weeks plus a few days. My official due date now is Sep 26th I believe, but I'm staying on with you ladies as I tend to go full term if not past due so we could still end up with an October baby.

Re: The Old Wives Tales

Hehehe, it's a boy. We're really excited and I can't wait to get little boy woolies for him. I'm also relieved that we don't need to come up with a girl's name now. I think we're going to go with Samuel Elias for his name, unless we change our minds in the coming months.

I might be interested, I just have to get dh to go along with it. We're suppose to be budgeting and saving money, but I just want to buy every cute thing I see.

I don't know anything about these old wives tales. I mean, I've heard of them but never tried them or knew how to.
I'm interested in the cravings one though. I'm definitely craving sour stuff but the last time I craved sour was when I was pregnant with a girl. I didn't crave sour with my boy.

I've known both of my babies gender just by intuition. I have an idea but I don't like to lean towards boy or girl in case I'm wrong.
