Blue or Pink?

A lot of people ask me if I think I'm having a boy or a girl. Today I thought I would do a post on all of those old wives tales and let you all make a guess for yourself. So what do you think--Blue or Pink??

1.) Carrying high or low? I really have no idea. I think high but Scott thinks low? Okay so I've failed on the first question. Pink or Blue

2.) Craving sweet or salty? Sweet all the way. Pink

3.) Chinese Gender Predictor? Blue

4.) Morning Sickness? Umm....yes. Pink

5.) Complexion? I've always been lucky to have really clear skin. A few days before I found out I was pregnant I noticed a little blemish and thought to myself "that's weird I wonder if I'm pregnant." (And that was as much thought as I put into that.) My nice clear skin is not so nice and clear anymore. I always have one or two pimples which is super annoying to me although it's starting to go away so I'm hoping I'm done with that little first trimester symptom. Pink

6.) Dreams? I've only had two baby dreams since I've been pregnant. They both happened early on and in the same week. In both of my dreams I was in the doctors office doing an ultrasound and my doctor told me it was a boy. Supposedly you dream the opposite of what you're having. Pink

7.) Heartbeat? If the heartbeat is under 140 beats per minute it's a boy and over 140 it's a girl. We've heard the heartbeat 3 times now. The first time it was 120, the second time 161, and the last visit it was at 148. I guess I'll pick the best of 2/3? Pink

8.) Has Scott gained any weight? I asked him for permission to put this on here because the answer is yes! He blames me because we haven't been eating very healthy for nearly four months now. Oops! Pink

9.) Sleep on your left or right side? I've always slept on my right. Pink

10.) Headaches? Yes. I get headaches quite a bit. Blue

11.) Baby Names? Supposedly if you can only think of specific names for a boy or girl you will have that particular baby. Scott and I have had a boy name picked out for about 3 years now. We've gone through a baby book with 100,000 names and still came up empty handed for a girl name. Blue

12.) Mood Swings? None for me. Blue

13.) Feet? If your feet suddenly get cold during pregnancy you're having a boy. If they stay the same it's a girl. Pink

14.) Craving more fruit or cheese? Fruit. Pink

15.) What do I think? Apparently 71% of the time the mother correctly predicts what she is having. I've always imagined I would have a girl first. Pink

After reading all of these old wives tales/gender predictions what do you think Baby Johnson is? Will I be buying a lot of blue or pink?


  1. Okay, I am guessing boy just because everyone I know has girls and we need more boys in this world. :-)

    1. I can't tell you how many people have said that but you're right. It does seem like there are more girls than boys!

  2. I think it's a girl! Since you're having trouble coming up with a girl's name, of COURSE it'll be that one :)

    When do you guys "officially" find out? Should be pretty soon, right?

    2. My first reply published before I was ready. Trying this again...
      Girl names are so much harder to me! And yes we'll officially find out the gender very soon although we already have a pretty good idea from our last ultrasound. Just waiting on the next one to really confirm!

  3. Since you're already buying guess is girl. BUT, I also think boy simply bc I feel like you've probably always wanted a girl and God has quite the sense of humor with those I've found out ��
