Military Spouse Magazine Article! And First Gender Predictor Post!

I forgot to tell all of you that the article "A spouse like you" was published in this month's (April's) Military Spouse Magazine. Unfortunately, I have not seen the finished product yet, because I don't have a PX or Commissary around me, but the journalist had said she would send me a copy, so hopefully she follows through! For you milspouses out there, has anyone read it? I would love to hear how it came out! I will post the article for the rest of you as soon as I get it.

On a frustrating note, I dropped my photography class. This all day hangover feeling has made it hard to go to work, much less go to class and then take 50-100 photos for each project each week. I felt bad also because every one of my appointments will be on a Thursday, and I would be missing class more than I want. I already had to reschedule my April 21st for the 28th because I was supposed to have a midterm that day. I guess I could ask to have my original appointment back, but I think I will keep the 28th because we should be able to hear the baby on doppler since I will be 11 weeks by then! I would hate to go in too early and freak out if they couldn't find a HB. Of course, I have no reason to think this baby isn't growing. Between all the symptoms, and my belly popping out ALREADY! I have a feeling we have a strong, healthy one on our hands!

So, I want to start a "Will it be a girl or a boy" sting of posts. I will be doing all of the old wives tales between now and the u/s when we find out. I am not sure how early we will know, because I will be getting them quite frequently after the second trimester hits, so I figured I should start pretty quickly.

So for the First Old Wives Tale, I did the Chinese Gender Predictor Chart. I did a few of them to see if there was any variance, because I know some of them use the Western months and ages, whereas the REAL ones use the lunar/Eastern calendar and ages. I went to this website. According to ALL the Chinese predictor charts, I am to expect a BOY. To compare to Rosalynn, I went back and re-submitted all my info for my conception with Rosie, and sure enough, ALL of them said I would have a how accurate are these?

What does it say you are having/ had? How much can we rely on it? I would love for a few of you to try it out for your current pregnancies or past pregnancies and tell me what it says:-)

So Far:
Boy: 100%
Girl: 0%
This could turn out to be a lot of fun!!! Let me know if there are any old wives tales you want me to try!
