In case you haven't heard...

I'm pregnant!

Joseph and I are very excited to be announcing that we are expecting our first bundle of joy July 20, 2011. It's been a little hard to wrap our heads around the fact that we are going to be parents. I am now about 16 weeks and I am feeling great.

15 weeks

I have finally gotten over the morning sickness stage and life is going great. We are excited to find out the sex of the baby in a couple of weeks. Joseph wants a boy, of course, and I would really be happy with which ever I got. I have been busy looking up old wives tales and the Chinese gender chart. Here is what I have come up with...

Chinese Gender Chart: Boy

Heart Beat is 162: Girl

Carrying Baby Low: Boy

Mother's Age and Conception Date is Even: Boy

Craving Sweets: Girl

Rest on the Left Side: Boy

Those are just a few I have been reading and hearing about a lot. On the Shinoda side all the grandchildren who have had kids so far were the opposite sex of the grandchild; so all the boy grandchildren had girls and all the girl grandchildren had boys as their first child. So going along with the pattern I should have a boy. But whatever it is we will be happy to have it. I put a poll in the right column for our friends and family to vote and predict what we are having. I will be 20 weeks the second week of March so that is when the closing date is. Start voting! We are interested in seeing what everyone thinks we are having.
