I can still remember my heart skipping a beat when I read the positive pregnancy test for Parker and for baby girl. Both were rather unexpected which made the moment very surreal. Rob was actually in the bedroom both times and while he loved being there in that moment, I still wish I could have surprised him.
With Parker, once we found out we were pregnant that was all we would know until he was born. I loved being team green and could have gone that route again but Rob really wanted to know the gender. I decided to go with it and we learned that we were expecting a baby girl the evening of our anatomy scan at home together as a family. One thing that convinced me to find out the gender this time was all the fun I could have with the nursery and doing some of the gender prediction tests I had watched people do during my last pregnancy.
I had gone back and forth on whether I wanted to do them before or after we found out. I know the whole purpose is to give you an idea well before the 20 week anatomy scan but I wasn’t sure if the results would impact the moment I found out for sure. I decided to do the tests after we found out so I could also report on their accuracy.
There were some I already knew the answer too because they are pretty common gender prediction questions.
My sweet husband stepped in and helped with this test as well. I don’t buy or eat red cabbage so I was a little taken aback by the smell and couldn’t imagine it cooked.
