Gender Reveal Party Giveaway!!!

Sharing is caring!

GIVEAWAY CLOSED!!

This morning I lay awake in bed just thinking about the gender of my baby.  (I can’t say ‘sex’ of my baby because I am informed by my niece that sex is a bad word.)

Here’s the truth of it: I want this baby to be a girl. How could I deny it?  I have two boys already, of COURSE I want a girl!  But what’s more, I have felt for a long time, that it IS a girl.  I feel like I’ve already met her.

When I was pregnant with Lukey, I thought ‘yes, it’s probably another boy.’  So I started brainstorming boys names since they are so hard for me.  I ran several ideas by my hub, who nixed all.  But when one day I said, “How about Luke or Lucas?” he said, “Yes, I like that.”  And suddenly our baby was named Lucas and I already knew he was a boy.  It just felt completely right.  There were no surprises when the ultrasound confirmed that several weeks later.  My baby was my Lucas, and I felt like we’d already met.

This time around, the pregnancy has been VERY different. I’ve been out of control hormonal and definitely not as sick.  I’ve been craving salty instead of sweet, I’ve been tired beyond belief.  And as I thought about names, I could not come up with one boy name that I liked completely.  Still can’t.  But one day, just as with Lucas, I thought up a girls name and ran it by my husband.  He liked it.  And suddenly I find myself referring to this baby as this name (NO, I’m not saying it yet!) and thinking of it as a girl.

Am I cursing myself?  Are there dozens of you who are thinking “poor dillusional girl!  That happened to So-And-So and they had 10 boys in a row?”  I guess there is nothing to do but wait and see.  Next Tuesday I will have my ultrasound and find out. And I’ll tell you on Wednesday (so I can have a day to process the info.)  Okay, enough talk.

I want YOU to guess what I’m having!!

And if you guess right, you could win one of these fabulous prizes from my most amazing sponsors:

  1. what do your boys think? the kids are usually right…
    My bet is on a girl and I can’t wait to find out the name you picked 😉
    Greetings from Germany!

  2. Well, because I want you to be right and get what you want I am going to guess GIRL!! btw, are we supposed to leave another comment that we like you on FB or is that simply criteria to leaving this comment?

  3. I have to believe it is a girl. The three men in your family need some challenges. Before I even knew I was pregnant, I had already picked a girls’ name. My husband has three boys from his first marriage, I thought he needed a real challenge. When I found out I was pregnant, my mother had a dream about her granddaughter and we never even thought twice.

  4. I’m guessing if the prenancy is different from your first two then it’s a good chance it’s a girl. I had one of each and the girl was first (she’s 15 now). I craved salty french fries and chocolate shakes with her. My son (13-1/2) was a little different – peanut butter and tomatoes [not together]. We had a hard time coming up with a boy name that we agreed on, but our daughter’s name was pretty easy. Hope you get your wish! I guess if not you can try again! We’ve got a couple of families in our community that had four boys before they got their sweet little tomgirls. Best wishes!

  5. Love your blog. My guess is a boy!

  6. My guess is a girl, based on what you said. 🙂

    I don’t have facebook, but like you and your blog anyways…does that count? LOL!

  7. I’m going to say boy. Just to be different. But I actually already have a girl gift picked out for you – haha. Boy is my official answer on this blog though. Good luck to me!

  8. As a person who had two boys and then a girl and my reading your symptoms, you ARE having a girl.

  9. I’ll say girl and cross my fingers for you.

  10. I’m so excited for you to find out!! No, I don’t believe in cursing yourself:) This little one’s gender was decided long before he/she was a thought in your mind:) I hope you get what you want…and I don’t mean that in a selfish way…but it’s not bad to want a girl after having two litle guys:) I’m not gonna lie..I was hoping for a boy this time too after dealing with tiaras, dresses, and dolls for the last three years:) I’m SO excited we are having a boy and I know God chose the perfect gender for your baby too…whatever it may be:) Of course we had a girl name ready to go and it took about a week to find a boy name! Ha! But now we love what we picked out and it feels like he has been a part of our family for so long already…he already fits:)

    I’m so excited for your ultrasound and to see what it will be! I have my second ultrasound on Tuesday too…I could just sit in that dark little room all day and watch our little guy:) Congratulations and good luck!

  11. I’m going to guess a girl because I had a similar experience when I had my girl. I had complications very early in that pregnancy and had to have multiple ultrasounds. Each time I looked at her, I knew it was a girl, even though I was only 5 weeks the first time I saw her. I suggested a name, Stephen liked it, and it stuck! We had the opposite experience with our boy- we didn’t choose a name until he was about a day old. Anyway, I think your intuition is right- you are having a girl. 😀

  12. I feel like you’re going to have another boy, but I’m going to say official answer is girl since I know that’s what you’d like! So girl it is!

  13. Ah! I don’t know which to choose… I have 5 boys with no girls, so I’m going to have to stick with boy. 🙂 Can’t wait to find out.

  14. I got see my babies first ultrasound today. I am 12 weeks!! We already have a little boy (Owen) and both my husband and I are praying for a baby girl! In fact we want a girl so badly that we cant even come up with a single boy name but we are completely stuck on “Emma Grace” if its a girl!! Good luck! I HOPE your having a girl also… so that is my guess ~Your having a GIRL~

  15. I voted on facebook but did not know if we were supposed to do it here. My vote is girl.

  16. I understand how you feel. I am pregnant with my 4th and I want it to be a boy. I have 3 girls already and I lost a little boy halfway through my pregnancy last time. My guess is a little girl because mommas are usually right about these things.

  17. I guess Boy
    i like you on fb

  18. I think you’ll have a girl 😉 And I like you on Facebook!

  19. My grandmother had eight boys, she never did get her little girl. I am hoping that this is not the case with you. Every woman needs her little princess to spoil so I’m saying girl. Good Luck! I wish you the best.

  20. GIRL!! 😀 I have two little girls and they’re just awesome! Good luck!!

  21. Im going to guess girl, since the pregnancy feels so different than your others.

  22. Patty Wright says:

    After two boys, my guess is that you are definately having a girl! I am crossing my fingers here! I love boys, but girls are so much fun!!!

  23. Anne Marie says:

    I am going with boy – just to be different but who cares as long as you have a healthy, happy baby. This is what really counts!

  24. Katrina H says:

    I’m guessing a boy since I’m having a girl 🙂

  25. I’m sensing a girl. Only because you want one so bad…but boys love their mothers longer. AND, I “like’ you on FB. *love the patterns*

  26. I went to your FB and liked–I’m guessing a girl 🙂

  27. I’m guessing it’s a boy, but I really hope you get the girl you want. Girls are tons of fun! (I’ve got 3!) 🙂

  28. Well I know what you mean when you can just tell what the gender of your baby is.With our last one, from day one we had a feeling we were having a boy. We always called the baby a boy and stuck with it. Then it came time to find out what we were having and guess what, we were right! With that being said, I’m going to say a girl! (But whatever the baby is, I know you will be happy 🙂 Good luck!)

    **Oh I like you on facebook****

  29. I hope its a girl!!! that’s my guess!
    regardless, congratulations!!

  30. Jessica Wilson says:

    I, like many others, think you are going to have a girl! I’m really not very sure either way, but I have known so many women who have boys and each time the prayed for a girl with a boy coming in the end. (of course they are so in love with their boys. Ya’ know someone has to raise those knights in shining armor for all those little girls out there!) Girls are soo much fun and work all at the same time. Well, for that matter, so are boys lol
    Which ever you have I pray that it will be an easier pregnancy and delivery. And you have a beautiful healthy baby in the end. 🙂
    oh yeah I ‘like’ you on FB 😀

  31. My guess is a girl…course, we had three girls before we had our little guy! And then one more girl after that!

    Keeping you in our thoughts for a healthy pregnancy!

    Thanks!
    Julie

  32. you’re definitely having a baby girl!! =) I went through similar things myself while prego with my daughter since it was different when I had my son. Congrats!

  33. You know, I was right on the gender of each my kids so you may be too! Like you, I started calling the baby by the name we’d chose long before the wonderfully revealing ultrasound. Good luck! I agree you should get a girl after 2 boys 🙂

  34. Jessica Julian says:

    I’m guessing a boy!

  35. I like you on facebook. I’m guessing it’s a girl.

  36. I’m gonna guess a beautiful BABY GIRL!!!! To be honest with you in the beginning of my pregnancy, I kept saying he, he, he secretly hoping inside it was a she. Everyone swore it was a boy! Let alone twins! I kept praying for my girl and because I never found out I wanted the super surprise the day he/she was born! It took me a long time to pick baby names even though, I had them etched in the back of my mine a boy and girl’s name the whole time. The day came and I had to be induced because I was already 10 months pregnant and I had my 8lbs.
    8oz BABY GIRL!! So I got my wish and I pray that you get yours as well. All the best on a healthy BABY GIRL!!!

  37. I don’t think your dillusional or crazy or anyother metaphor. When I was pregnant with my son, I did the same thing(except he was my first & only)but I just knew it was a boy and didn’t want to hear anything different or think anything different.
    I believe your having a girl, and I can’t be happier for you!
    I can’t wait to find out what her name is going to be…

  38. First of all, let me say that It sounds to me like you are going to have a wonderful baby girl! Secondly, I just stumbled on to your site and I am so glad I did! I am fairly new to blogging, and there is so much for me to learn about the actual site and how to design it. Your tutorials on blog designs are great and I am going to attempt to my hand at it. Thank you so much for sharing this information!

  39. I’m saying girl and I do like you on FB already! Can’t wait to see if we’re right! 😀

  40. I am going to guess that you are having a sweet little girl.

  41. I’m also guessing girl. I, too had two boys in a row and my gut feeling was ‘boy’ each time even though I wanted the second to be a girl so badly (I thought we were stopping at 2). When #3 came along, she just ‘felt’ like a girl – and we were right! So if your gut is saying girl, then I’m guessing girl 🙂

    p.s. I like you on fb 🙂

  42. If mama says girl, I say girl too!
