So, Liz goes into have another ultrasound next Thursday, where we will hopefully find out what sex the sprog-to-be will be. To amuse ourselves in the meantime, we demand to see how psychic our friends are...

I'm pretty sure I'm not psychic but I'm sure I can make some logical deductions and calculations to correctly identify the sproglets sex. So...

Baby's due : 27.10.2008
I heard about it : 01.04.2008
So due date minus knowledge of sprog = 28144016

Everyone knows maps are the wrong way up which means Australia is north (positive) of the equator so we ADD 1 to the total = 28144017

Sprog was conceived in Summer (1)
Due in Spring (2)

So we add 1 and minus 2 from the total = 28144016

It's raining today which means I'm happy and add my lucky number to the total (13) = 28144029

The total's an odd number which means the sprog's unbalanced just like its chromosones (an X and Y as opposed to two X's).
So the baby's a boy!

I figured my 'make-it-up-as-you-go-along' method has as good a chance as me flipping a coin to get it right :)

Such lovely nonsense :)

*grin* The unknown was mostly there for the "baby grabs crotch and won't let go during ultrasound" option...

I am encouraging relatives to go with green, or purple, rather than pastel colours when they ask about gifts. Although black never goes astray either ;)

Someone else guessed "boy" using wacky scientific method so I say GIRL because I'm difficult.

You can KNOW and not tell US you know! That would be the best way. I made the mistake of giving in to my parents' badgering about what The Boy's NAME was gonna be and ended up with a huge tirade on the subject of what a bad choice we'd made. Sheesh! The less o' that cr@p the better!

BTW, the best wives' tale stuff I know of is that in the third trimester it's easy to pick boy or girl by how high the baby is sitting. Unfortunately I don't remember which means what - O post pregnancy brain! (and almost 6 years have passed - yeah that!)

Heh, I am happy to tell peopel - primarily because I'd screw it up and say he/she anyhow.

Names on the otherhand, can remain a secret. Anyone who pesters gets told "ethelbert" :)

I may well have to buy this as a baby shower gift...

I saw that the other day in Borders and nearly bought it. :)

Er, that was me.

There is no box for both????

I vote both boy and girl!
1st-May-2008 05:53 am (UTC)
Well, given we know its not twins, both would go under "other"
1st-May-2008 06:09 am (UTC)
it could be a Hermaphrodite and that wouldn't come under other???
1st-May-2008 03:03 pm (UTC)
How is Hermaphrodite _not_ other? :)

By the way, I'm a bit disturbed by the notion of the baby being in Liz's "belly". What, she ate the munchkin?
'Get in mah belly!'

Lets just say the moral of the story is that hiccups when pregnant can end in strange outcomes.
