Gender Prediction

Gender prediction for baby #2!!  Since we are finding out this time I will go ahead and post this so people can get their votes in before we find out!! :)

It is fun to compare this one to the one I did with Thomas!

Cravings:  I have craved more Italian food!! Pizza, spaghetti, etc. I am not sure what that is suppose to predict. Except that I have been able to stomach vegetables and on occasion have craved salads (This NEVER happened when I was pregnant with Thomas).  I would have been fine eating a burger and fries every meal with Thomas. haha.  Of course I didn't because I would have been as big as a house.  I have also read that with girls you don't eat as many calories.  I dont think I have eaten as much with this pregnancy as I did with Thomas so... I think this means GIRL!

Heart rate: This one is a little harder since I am so early. But I think it has been lower than what I was with Thomas.  At 12 weeks the hearbeat was mid 150's. I think this one means BOY!

Shape of Belly: Watermelon or Basketball? I am not sure?!? I have not gained weight anywhere else but the belly so that usually means boy. I think this ones means BOY

Hair on Legs: More hairy = boy and same or less = girl.  I would say mine has stayed about the same. I think this one means GIRL

"Prettiness":  So I have also heard that if you "glow" you are having a boy if you feel like your acne is worse and your hair is aweful and you just don't seem to feel as pretty or as put together as before you were pregnany then it is a girl. They say this is because the girl takes away from the mother's beauty. So for this one I think it means GIRL! My acne was worse my hair is completely out of control and overall trying to feel like i am put together and "feel pretty" has been more difficult since being pregnant. Hence why I have not taken many pictures throughout the pregnancy. =)

Morning Sickness: This one is hard as well.  I have had more than with Thomas but still not too bad.  So...this one could go either way... GIRL/BOY!

Chinese Gender Predictor: GIRL!

Mother intuition: I go back and forth all the time and I had a dream the other night it as a boy.  But my initial gut feeling is girl!! I was right with Thomas so this one will have to be GIRL!!

BOY = 3
GIRL = 6

Please take the poll and let me know what you think! I can't wait to find out in just a few weeks!!! :)

Goetze Family Christmas Tree Decorating Night

My family has a tradition where all the kids come together with mom and dad and we go get out family Christmas tree.  This was such a big thing when we were kids because my parents would let us eat all the candy we want and drink all the soda we want!! haha.

Here are a few pictures of us shopping for the tree! Thomas did great today and was a trooper through all the fun events.

Baby George #2

Because of the bleeding and a few other small complications with this pregnancy I have had quite a few ultrasounds. Our most recent one was last week.  The ultrasound tech checked every thing and the baby was growing fine and looked good. He measured the neck for down syndrome and every thing checked out ok. We werent really concerned about this since my doctor said she thought I would be fine without having all the other blood work done to check for it. They could have told us the gender if the baby would have cooperated but of course baby did not! :) Thats ok! It would have been a guess at this point any way.  They still want to continue to see me through my pregnancy so we will be going back the beginning of January and then we will find out the gender for sure. :) So exciting to find out this time.

Here is a picture from the ultrasound.  It is amazing how much this baby looks like a baby even at 12 week gestation.

12 Weeks Pregnant

I am going to try to be more faithful with these this time around. haha. 

  • Most of her critical systems are fully formed!
  • She's about to enter the growth and maturation stage, in which her organs and tissues will grow and develop rapidly.
  • She's now developing her reflexes -- if you poke her body, she'll likely move.
  • She's opening and closing her fingers and curling her toes, too.
  • Her brain is developing fast!

Information from

Maternity Clothes: yes and no! Maternity shirts are definitely more comfortable for me but pants I can go either way. Dresses obviously are still easy to 

Gender: We don't know yet. But we are finding out this time around!! yay!! =) Im excited to find out since we waited last time.  It was so much fun to wait but I am excited to have it the other way this time.

Movement: I think I have already felt this baby move.  I know that is pretty much unheard of.  But it actually doesn't surprise too much me because at 8 weeks when we had an ultrasound the baby was so squirmy that she could hardly get a good picture of him or her! 

What I Miss:
 ENERGY! Oh my! I am so drained ALL the time!!! 

Sleep: I have had insomnia with this pregnancy.  It has been awful.  My body wants to sleep but my mind wont go to sleep.  One night of bad or no sleep I take a half of a Unisom pill and it knocks me out enough to sleep but I still wake up to Derek getting home from work and Thomas crying. So that is nice! 

Cravings: It varies and not as exact as with Thomas.  I still have the cravings when nothing else will satisfy.  That is starting to go away, thankfully. 

What We Are Looking Forward To: I am looking forward to looking pregnant and not fat. haha.  Right now I just look like a put on a few pounds. lol. 

*Please ignore my awful makeup and hair in this picture.  I was exhausted!! :)

12 Weeks Pregnant!
