Wives Tales

So we find out what the baby is next Friday, the 27th, and I decided to try out some wives tales for a good laugh and to see if any of them will turn out.

1- NEEDLE AND THREAD. So you thread a needle with thread, stroke the thread 10x with your pointer finger and thumb. After that you have your palm facing down with the needle hanging 1 inch away from it, then you turn your palm so it is facing up. If it swings back and forth it is a BOY if it swings in circles it is a GIRL! Mine said BOY....3x.

2- VEINS UNDER YOUR EYES. So you go in the mirror and look at the veins under the colored part of your eyes if they are shaped like a V you're having a GIRL if it is shaped like nothing it is a BOY.
Mine said GIRL under both eyes.

3- ACNE. They say if you have increased acne it's a GIRL. If you're just normal its a BOY.
Mine would be BOY. I have had wonderful skin so far.

4-HAIRYNESS. If you are noticing that any hair on your body is growing in faster then it is a BOY. If not it's a GIRL!
My leg hair is growing like crazy I swear I have to shave twice as often maybe it's a BOY.

5- KEY TEST. If you pick up a key by the bulky end/ round end you're having a BOY if you pick it up by the skinny end then it is a GIRL.
Mine was BOY.

6- CHINESE GENDER CHART. You will have to look it up. But according to my conception date I could have conceived January 30- February 1st. So I cannot be totally accurate with the chart.

7- CRAVINGS. If you crave salty food it is a BOY if you was sweets it's a GIRL.
I crave SALT all I eat right now is chalupa's from Taco Bell.

8- BAKING SODA. Take a teaspoon of baking soda and pour a cup of pee on it. If it fizzes it's a BOY if it does nothing it's a GIRL. ( This can also be done with bleach)
Bleach: Mine fizzed and so did Andrew's Hahaha
Baking Soda: No Fizz.

9-HEARTBEAT. If the baby's heartbeat is under 139 it is a BOY if it is over 140 it is a GIRL.
We have not been to the doctor yet but I will let you know!

Well according to the wives tales it is an absolute BOY BOY BOY. I am excited to find out for REAL and we will be ecstatic for either a boy or girl.

Ps. Jocelynn can count to 10 and know's her ABC'S. Just so I can remember.

After listening to conference there were so many things that really hit home for me. Whether you believe in the church or not I felt like there were so many things that anyone can apply in their lives. One of my favorite things that was said pretty much said that the greatest blessings that we have are the ones that take place within the walls of our homes. Whether that is being a newly wed, just having a baby, being married for 20 years etc. There is always something that can be done in your home that will bless you for the rest of your life. For me it is being a wife and a mother. All I ever wanted to be was a good wife and mother, and it is kind of surreal to think that I am already in that stage of life. I am grateful for being blessed with the opportunity to have children and to teach them. I am grateful for the opportunity to have a husband to learn and grow with to be better people for each other and our children.
