A letter to my unborn daughter

This week marks 11 weeks left until we meet your sweet little face. Time is flying by, I am excited but also worried for you to enter this world during a pandemic. We are taking all of the precautions to make sure we are all safe.

When I saw those two lines on that test, I was so thrilled I could not believe it! I started crying from happiness, I immediately got your brother Kendyn ready and we walked to the library to get a book about being a big brother so we could tell your daddy the news when he got home from work that evening.

At 10 weeks on new years eve, we found out that you were a girl and we were so thrilled! Mommy is so excited to dress you up in cute outfits and bows!

I dread the day when life knocks you down because I can’t protect you from the world. Baby girl, Just remember to be who you want to be and never be afraid to alter your path. Even though I cannot promise you everything, I can promise to show you love in all it’s forms. I promise you are going to be born into a house full of love.

Yes, you are the baby, but that just means we have been waiting longer for you. Your siblings love you so much already, Kendyn is so excited to be able to teach you all kinds of things. He asks me everyday if he can teach you different things and he loves talking to you in my belly. You have four siblings that will help teach you how to crawl, walk, talk, give hugs, kisses and how to make your dad melt.

Even though the house is a mess, and the dishes are dirty, we promise that the kisses are plentiful, the hugs are warm, and you are very loved! I hope that makes you feel important, protected, and beautiful.
I will miss feeling you move around in my tummy and know that you are safe in there, but I am so excited to meet you!

Love you so much baby girl!

XOXO, Mommy

Old wives tales and my pregnancies

Now that you found out that you are expecting, I know one of the first things women think about is wondering what the gender will be. I know with both of my pregnancies I liked to look at different old wives tales just for fun to see what they said about what the gender might be. There are so many and a lot of them are just silly, but it is fun to just try them out and be curious. I have decided to gather up five old wives tales and put them side by side with both of my pregnancies.

1. If you are carrying high, it’s a girl!

Now I know there is no scientific reason that this is true, but with both of my pregnancies this is the case.

With my first, who was a boy, I carried him low and with this pregnancy I am having a girl and she is definitely high.

She is always playing on my ribs, haha.

2. Lots of morning sickness? It’s a girl!

I think this is true with me, this pregnancy I did have morning sickness the whole first trimester, to the point that I lost weight.

With my son, I never had any kind of morning sickness and never had an issue with weight gain or eating.

3. Craving salty foods? It’s a boy! Craving sweet foods? It’s a girl!

This one is silly in my opinion.

With my son I craved just about anything sweet or salty. With this pregnancy, I am five days away from my third trimester and I have not had any cravings at all.

4. Low fetal heartrate? boy. High fetal heartrate? girl.

Some people believe that if the heartrate is above 140 bpm then it is a girl, and if it’s under 140 bpm then it’s a boy.

With my oldest his was between 140-160 bpm and with my daughters, hers has been between 160-170 bpm.

The heartrate can change from one movement to the next, no matter what the gender is.

5. Partners weight gain

This old wives tale says, if your partner gains weight with you then that could be a sign that you are having a girl.

This was not true for me.

With my oldest, who is a boy, my husband and I gained a ton of weight. With this pregnancy, who is a girl, neither one of us have gained a lot of weight.


I am curious if anyone else had the same or different outcomes with these, and what other ones have you checked out?
