Snips, Snails & Puppy Dog Tails

Well, it's decided.
I'm having a boy.

You think it's too early to tell, do you? Well, I am ready to place my bets on this one. I may only be (fill in the blank)** weeks along, but I have found an all-knowing gender predictor. And don't tell my son this, but it broke my heart.

(**there is some confusion about how far along I am. Going back to the doctor on Wednesday to make sure that 1 - everything is healthy, and 2 - to get a better estimate of how far along I am)

I have been dreaming in pink, and ONLY pink for all of my life. There hasn't ever been a trace of blue. But, I guess once again, Someone had different plans for me.

So, would you like to test out my predictor? Well go right ahead. With my age of 27, and month of March:I know it states that it is only 90% accurate, but I have yet to find someone that this hasn't worked for. I tried my entire family; all 8 of the kids/grand kids, my mom (didn't do my dad because I wasn't sure of his mom's age)***, and John, and found 100% accuracy. And then, if that wasn't enough I started doing our friends' kids. And then my pregnant friends that already know the gender of their babies. And they all worked.

So, in conclusion, I think this Chinese gender chart must have 100% accuracy within my family. After all, we have been told a time or two that we look like we might have some Chinese in us:

(Sorry Joy, you make things a wee bit more difficult with my limited photo-editing software on this computer and a tilted head!)

***EDIT: BREAKING NEWS: Just figured out my Grandmother's age so I was able to do my Dad's supposed gender. All these years, I have known him as a boy. But according to the chart, he is a girl! Either that, or I might just have discovered my 9.09% chance for a girl!
