You're so cute! I understand the feeling of hugeness when others are surprised by how far along you are. I had a nurse at my drs office tell me that I carry small because I am long waisted.

My prediction is a girl. I think I even predicted this in the comments a few posts back. Yep, still a girl.

Although I predicted a girl for myself and our ultrasound just revealed "boy stuff" so what do I know?

Oh Miss Skinnylegs you look fantastic. My only prediction for the baby is: adorable.

Yep, you're carrying high. That's supposed to be a girl. I was a real skeptic about this stuff, but when I was pregnant, everyone kept saying BOY, BOY, BOY. I carried very low. We didn't get the sex from the ultrasound, but by the time he was born, I kind of knew.

FWIW, my sil carried high with both her pregnancies, and she had two boys. So it's not fool proof.

According to Aruban folklore, you're carrying your baby high, so it's supposed to be a boy.

32 weeks! Wow, that went by quickly.

One method I've heard of is dangling a needle off a thread over your stomach - if it goes back and forth in a line, it's a boy, if it swings in a circle, it's a girl. I never tried this one, though, so caveat emptor and all that.

And I can also vouch for the fact that baby boys are the most darling little goobers on the planet :). (And my shallow side was pleased to discover that there are plenty of adorable boy clothes out there!)

Long time lurker here to say:
Just you wait, Henry Higgins, just you wait.
Your belly will get so much bigger you will look back at these photos and laauugghhhh. You look beautiful. I know what's coming as a mom of 2, and it's the best. I look forward to all of the lovely blogginess (yes, I know that's not a word). But seriously, you're not even close to huge yet. Hehe. You will look great even when you are. I am thinking of you. All the best.

Yay! You're getting close. I can't wait to you get to meet your little one.

You are tiny. But watch out: I expanded quite rapidly over the course of about 2 weeks. (Granted, I also ate quite a lot of ice cream and cake during those two weeks. I am bad.) As for predicting the sex, I understand all of those folkloric methods are correct at least 50% of the time.

Trust your vibes. I always just "knew" that both of mine were boys. The doctor told us our first was probably a girl (because he couldn't see any parts at all) but I didn't believe him. I knew he was a boy.

Adorable photo, lil Mama!

They say if you carry high then it's a girl, and low for a boy. I'm thinking you look like you'll have a girl.

The "only son of an only son of an only son" puts a lot of pressure on you, doesn't it? That's my situation too, but we're having a boy this time. Then again, the sex of the baby is determined by the sperm not the egg, so you can always blame him!

Well, according to the Chinese Birth Chart, it's a boy. However...it was wrong about my friend's little girl AND my soon-to-be nephew. And you are carrying all up front and high, like it's a girl. So that's my prediction.

:)

I felt huge through the whole thing too. Once I got to 39 weeks and looked back at my 32 week picture though... wow! Such a difference. You'll be amazed at how much bigger the belly can get. I managed to not get a single stretch mark until I was 38 weeks along... and here I thought I was in the clear!

I've thought all along it's a girl. Think how perfect it would be for your parents to have one of each as their first grandkids!

I faced the same lineage pressure; it wasn't just DH being the last of the line, it was his father and grandfather too! OH the pressure I felt. But we had a girl so it wasn't meant to be. The funny part is how much she resembles him and how much she loves to help him with chores and do "boy" things. It's just the sweetest thing to see their bond.

I think you look all lit up with happiness, and I'm so happy for you!

Definitely a boy -- because little boys hug their mamas tight! Anyway that's what's everyone said to me when I was pregnant and my stomach was not really protruding all that much. I did have a boy for what it's worth :)

I think girl, so it's probably a boy. I was even wrong with my own pregnancies.

You look great.

wow! You look properly pregnant!!

This is something I once read in a book about the gender of a baby:

If you have a little red line from your iris of your eye to the inside of your eye on the right side, it's a boy. If it's on the left side, it's a girl.


God Bless

Girl, and you are carrying tight. You look fantastic!

Of the different methods of prediction people tried on me, the one that was right both times was this weird one. Find someone who has a baby less than six months old and hold him or her. A baby of the same gender as the one you are pregnant with will fuss, a baby of the opposite gender will coo.

You look LOVELY! Take a LOT of pictures of your belly! I wish I had taken more snaps during my pregnancy.

I'm not sure exactly how I came across your blog. I'm also a Catholic (Latin American) and have a 17th month old baby boy.

For 'World Blog Day', I recommended your blog on my post:

You look TINY to me, but I am carrying twins and I think my perspective might be just a weensy bit off. :)

You look a little small for 32 weeks to me (not that I think that's a problem, I've known several women who carried small). I'm trying to remember how large of a belly I had at 7 ish months, but I'm failing. I don't think it was gigantic -- that happened around month 8-1/2. If you want to see something truly terrifying, shoot me an email and I'll send you my two-weeks-prior-to-birth belly shot. My husband and I were calling it "The Belly That Ate New York". Don't freak out too badly, it WILL go back to at least almost normal eventually!

Oh, and I refuse to attempt a gender prediction. For 3/4 of my pregnancy I thought I was having a boy, then towards the end I became unsure. I had a girl. 70% of the people I knew were convinced it was going to be a boy, INCLUDING the Chinese acupuncturist who gave me acupuncture for labor induction. WRONG! ;-)

Hey, I think you look great! I know what you mean about people saying you're smaller than you think you are or feel like. That happened to me all the time last pregnancy. It's the worst thing in the world to say to a pg woman! It doesn't matter if you're technically smaller than other ladies, you're feeling HUGE and uncomfortable and completely unwieldly. I always felt like saying, "You think I'm small?! You should see me with my clothes off!".

Btw, no one is saying that to me this time around. =P

I've been thinking girl since you first announced that you were pregnant.

When I was pg everybody from the Publix checker to my mother in law ventured a guess. We found out early on that she was a girl but almost everyone guessed boy. So, in short, I have no idea. But for some reason when I read that you were pregnant I really thought it would be a girl. :)

I don't believe in any of that stuff, for one, it all contradicts itself, for two, there is always 50% chance you'll be right. When I was pregnant with my daughter, everyone thought I was having a boy (even the ultrasound technician) except for one friend, and she was right.

i know nothing about pregnancy, but for some reason i'm thinking it's a girl.
