Hi Guys! There is nothing I love more than a cozy cardigan for fall + I have been living in this one! I love the chunky, textured knit paired with a super fem cami. I plan to stock up on these easy layering pieces to wear throughout my pregnancy. I will be sharing more of these looks with you shortly! I’ll let this easy outfit speak for itself and hope that it gives you a little inspiration! I have linked to these items or similar items below! The rest of this post is dedicated to keeping you up-to-date on my pregnancy journey 🙂
In just a few weeks we will find out the gender of our little babe. It feels like Christmas is coming a little sooner for us this year! I have butterflies just thinking about it!
Everyone wants to know whether we want a boy or girl. While my husband is quick to answer boy, I am a bit more on the fence. I have to tell you, I really am completely split down the middle.
Of course I want a girl because it’s familiar territory. I’m a girl and I grew up surrounded by girls with 2 older sisters. I love the relationship that I have with my mom and can’t wait to have that with a daughter of my own. Mom and daughter adventures are the best + it’s a bond that only gets stronger over the years! My heart already melts just thinking of my husband with a daughter!! And of course, I love love love all of the endless outfit ideas for little girls!
On the other hand, I want a boy because it would take me a bit out of my comfortable zone. Having nephews has opened my eyes up to the fun world of little boys + I love every second of it. My husband is such a guys guy and I know that having a boy would bring him such joy. He would have a buddy to watch + play sports with, a helper in the yard + around the house and a little mini me to take under his wing. I would be completely smitten by this little one.
With that, I thought it would be fun to share my answers to old wives tales for predicting gender.
Sweet or Salty: It is said that if you crave salty food, it could be a boy and if you crave sweet food, it could be a girl.
Verdict: Boy – I typically have a serious sweet tooth but I am totally craving everything salty!
Morning Sickness: If you have morning sickness and nausea, it is said to mean girl. If not, it’s a boy
Verdict: Girl – I was nauseous and had no appetite throughout the first trimester and into the second!
Pregnancy Glow: A glowing complexion typically means it could be a boy while increased acne could mean girl.
Verdict: Girl – This momma is feeling like a hot mess lately!
Citrus Cravings: If you’re craving citrus, this means girl. If not, boy.
Verdict: Girl – Orange Juice + fruity candy (especially gushers! lol) are at the top of my cravings list!
Heart Rate: If the little ticker is beating slower then 140 beats per minute, it could mean boy. Higher, means girl.
Verdict: Girl – At our last ultrasound, the heart rate was 155
Chinese Gender Chart: This is based on how old the momma is at conception and the month the baby was conceived.
Mayan Gender Prediction: This is also based on the age and month of conception. If both numbers are even or both are odd, it’s girl. If one number is odd and the other is even, it’s boy.
Dreams: This tale says that you will have the opposite of what you’re dreaming.
Verdict: Boy – Last week both my hubs and I had a dream that we were having a girl.
Drum roll…that’s 3 boy and 5 girl! I can’t wait to let you all know the real verdict 🙂 Stay tuned!
