Is "Baby Bump" a Boy or Girl?

It's that time folks. Today's doctor's appointment should let us know if we are expecting a boy or girl this March. If not, we have a second ultrasound scheduled in a week that should definitely clinch it.

Cole and I have affectionately taken to referring to the child as "the bump" or "the baby bump" and are both hoping that knowing the gender will make this whole experience seem a little less surreal. Plus it'll be fun to start thinking about nurseries and baby names!


Stealing an idea from a similar post by a friend, here are our personal predictions:

Maura:
This mommy-to-be feels like a big slacker. I have no idea what the gender of our baby will be. However, I am a huge sucker for those flower bows the size of your baby girl's head and the idea of a big sister. Although, who wouldn't want a mini-me version of Coleman?

Cole:
Lets get real. I am the second oldest in my family. The oldest is my sister Baylee. Maura as well is the second oldest and has an older sister. Maura's older sister, Nicole, just had her first child and its a girl...see a pattern? Well, I think its about time the pattern is broken. My prediction is a boy to buck the trend. Our families are due for a boy to be the first.

Our officially, not official poll is located to the right. What do you think it will be?

I'm gonna go with baby boy bump. I think Cole needs a playmate, though the idea of large flowers on headbands does sway the vote some.

Based on both of your responses, it's a boy. Here is how I got there. My wife is the oldest, girl. Second oldest, also girl. My oldest sibling is a girl. Second oldest, yup, also girl. My dad's oldest, girl. Second Oldest, also Girl. Mom's oldest, girl... I could keep going, but you see my point. It's a boy!

I must have completely missed this announcement that you guys are expecting!! Congratulations!!!

Cameron, Shannon Voge said...

WHAT!?!???!?! How did I miss that you are pregnant!!!!!!!!! Thanks for informing the former PR campaigner member... I could have sent out a mass newsletter or put together a cutsie slogan and letterhead!! haha, CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! I'm so excited for you two, I can't believe it! Hope you're not feeling too yucky although it sounds like you're pretty much into your second trimester! Well, since I only know how to raise girls obviously and I'm a sucker for the big bows/flowers and frilies on their outfits too, I'm voting a girl. Congrats again, and your house is looking darling!!! You have such a great eye when it comes to rennovating!
