We'll find out the sex...fingers crossed!...this Wednesday. So which do you think it'll be? A boy or a girl?
Leave your name and answer in the comments section, and I'll let JoanMarie randomly pick a number to figure out which person (from the list of correct answers) will win the prize. And no, you can't answer twice. You already have a 50/50 chance of getting it right!
What are you hoping to win? I'll send you a signed copy of Thirteen Reasons Why, a signed copy of JoanMarie's CD In This World, and some cheap and silly pink or blue goodies...some of them edible. (I didn't want to buy that pink and blue stuff ahead of time just to take a picture for you because then I'd have to return half of it.)
I'll announce the name of our baby and the winner this Thursday, so get your answers in by Wednesday evening.
In the past several months, a lot of people have been telling us their superstitions about how to determine the sex. Below, I'll share some of that info to help you make your selection.
- JoanMarie had lot of morning sickness, associated with the extra female hormones caused by a baby girl.
- Since the male determines the gender, and my parents had two boys, there's a really good chance it'll be a baby boy.
- JoanMarie has been expressing a lot more of her "girly" characteristics, so it's a girl.
- JoanMarie usually sleeps on her left, which means it's a boy.
- A woman at church can tell just by looking at the shape of a mommy's tummy, and apparently we're having a girl.
- Based on our birth dates, BabyGenderTool.com says we're having a boy.
- JoanMarie's been craving sweet over spicy, which means we're having a girl.
Haha, great clues, Jay. ;)
I'm going to go with GIRL.
An early congrats to the both of you.
I vote girl!
I'm going for a girl. I like the name Ivy :)
I had 4 boys and carried differently each time, lol. I was also morning sick longer with each pregnancy. I always sleep on my right side.
When I was pregnant with my last son, a couple of twenty-something hunks who worked in the deli that I frequented watched me walk in one day when I was seven months pregnant. One of them said, that's a big boy you've got in there! The other nodded. I laughed, never having had anyone but little old ladies offer unsolicited predictions. When I asked why he thought that, he shrugged and said, "It better be! You're huge! Your belly looks like a big basketball!"
PS: I vote boy.
Oh, and I am one of 5 girls, with only 1 brother. Of the three sisters who had children, we produced 10 grandkids - 9 boys and 1 solitary girl.
Daring to be different and saying: boy.
Well... those facts certainly helped (no sarcasm at all). I pick girl mostly because I prefer the name Ivy over Isaiah (not that there is anything wrong with Isaish).
I'll vote boy!

I'm going to compare her experiences with mine, and go with GIRL.
Anyway, I've got a copy of 13RW, and I don't need any sweets (regardless of color) so don't count me for the contest, but I wanted to put in my two cents :), and wish you congrats again. It's really exciting finding out the baby's gender!
I'm feeling BOY vibes! Either way, it will be an amazing adventure!
i say it is a girl!!
I vote girl :)
I'm going with girl. (And either way, how exciting!)
Totally a GIRL dude!!! I had a lot of these things and I had a beautiful princess! And Ivy is such a gorgeous name.
I vote that it will be a girl [:
Congratulations, and I absolutely love both the names you picked out!
I'm guessing it's a girl.
And Ivy is such a pretty name!
I vote BOY =D
I'm thinking it'll be a boy
But either way congratulations :D
Girl! You are going to be blessed with a beautiful baby girl, I think!:)
i'll say.... artist.
It's a boy. So excited for you all!
My guess is for a boy. It seems like everyone I know has been having girls lately.
Corbin, if it's a boy, JoanMarie wants to know if you can teach him to weld? And if it's a girl, will you do the same?
If she's still feeling ill, I'm totally voting girl! My daughter made me sick for seven months (that didn't sound right).
Have a great appointment!
GIRL, most definitely. I like the name Ivy :)
We don't have to guess
Because we know the baby
boy or girl will be beautiful or handsome and smart just like grandma and grandpa. Since this would make us eligible for only half the prize and we have what's offered already(which we have to admit are both great-
so we are a bit prejudicial!)
So if we win we would like a copy
of "TRETTON SKAL VARFOR" when you
get a copy.
But if we had to guess.....
I vote IVY! Congrats to you both!
So I'm biased. When I was pregnant, I hoped and hoped I'd have a boy because I always had it in my mind that the boy would help protect a younger future sibling. (Whatever!)
When I found out it was a girl, suddenly I thought of every reason to have a girl first!
Funny how the mind works.
And you can guess now that my vote is for a girl.)
Boy. For no very good reason other than I love the name Isaiah.
The Lowneys think boy. :)
my votes for a boy :)
congratulations on the baby!
both names are really cute!
I say boy. Congratz either way.
Girls :) Congrats!
Hm... I have to go with a girl! I love the name Ivy.
Ivy Asher. Absolutely.
I vote GIRL.
I had bad morning sickness for nearly the entire pregnancy with my daughter, but hardly at all with my son. In my experience the hormone thing rang most true out of all the crazy superstitions. (And now I think I'm going to be ill just remembering it.)
By the way, CONGRATULATIONS!
I will go with girl. This is because of the morning sickness clue. (mine was so bad with my daughter but not my son.) Also, the sweet over spicy craving. Although, the real question is, does your wife want to eat meat, like steak steak and more steak? I couldn't get enough steak when I was pregnant with my son.
So I'm thinking there will be a little Ivy Asher coming into the world soon. Either way, it will be wonderful!
I say..... Boy, no girl. No boy.
Okay, final answer.. Girl!
Girl girl girl!! (But just one.) And mazel tov to you!
I'm guessing boy. I was sick as a dog with my daughter (and had to perform jury duty!! ugh!!) and for both pregnancies (boy & girl) craved salsa and chocolate - not together although there might be something to that... so go figure. I was sure my boy was a girl and vice versa. Whatever he/she is, may he/she be healthy and your wife have an easy, happy pregnancy, enjoying the wonder of life. :)
I say it is a girl. So from now on, I would start calling her Ivy.
I'm going to vote for a girl.
And congratualations to both of you!
Tell Joan Marie, Kenny and I (Maureen) say "Hi"
Girl is my vote. :)
Gonna have to go with girl!
And Ivy is a lovely name.
I'm guessing its a bouncing baby boy
I say definitely boy. And congratulations either way!
I think you'll be saying hello to Isaiah today.
