Pregnancy Wednesday: 18 Weeks


Hi Guys!

I hope that you all had a wonderful Holiday/Christmas/New Year/Hanukkah season and that the New Year has found you all safe and well!

The blog has been rather quiet the past few weeks for a bunch of reasons.  The first is that I honestly don't have a ton of reviews to catch up on and I am not one of those bloggers that is going to post stuff just to post.  I would rather bring you good information than a crappy post just to say I posted.  Plus, my family was hit by the plague (flu, fever, chills, cough, bronchitis, antibiotics, decongestants, and a lingering 3 week won't go away cough) right before Christmas and as I just said, it is still lingering.  At least Miss A and my hubby could take medicine, I was limited on what I could take with being pregnant and it seems that mine is just taking that much longer to get rid of.  And the last reason for the blog being quiet is that it was the holidays.  As much as I didn't want to write posts, I knew that you guys would be busy with family and wouldn't have time to read what I wrote anyway.  So now that the new year is here, back to the blogging world we come!

As of today, I am 18 weeks pregnant!  Seriously, it is so hard to believe that the midpoint of my pregnancy is so near.  June seems so far away but yet it seems to be approaching so quickly!  Miss A got some more baby dolls for Christmas and she has been having so much fun feeding them, changing them, bathing them, etc so I am getting pretty excited to see what she thinks of a baby brother or sister!  I know we will have some hard times and some jealousy issues to work out, but I am really excited to see how these two siblings take to one another.

And on to the guessing!  Some days I really think it is a boy.  And others I am convinced it is a girl.  We find out the end of the month, so I am getting really anxious for that Ultrasound.  Not only do I want to know the gender, but I am anxious to see that everything is ok too.

A few months back, I contacted Intelligender to see about reviewing their gender prediction kit.  I was fortunate enough for them to send me a kit.  I will post the review in its entirety after my Ultrasound to conclude on the validity of the test in my case, but in order to be truly unbiased and fair in my review, I feel the need to post the results BEFORE my Ultrasound!

So here it is...Intelligender predicts that we will have a.......BOY!  (a boy result will match the boy label and be a dark green, a girl result will match the girl label and be a sunny yellow/gold)  No doubt, that result is all boy!!!

We did have some troubles with the Intelligender test, and did have to have them send us another test (I will include that information in the review).  So now we just have to wait for the Ultrasound to see if it was right!  I have known a few others who have used the Intelligender predictor, and so far, I have not met anyone with a false result.  If you go to the Intelligender website, there are quite a few that were wrong, but the majority are correct.  My husband decided to sit down and calculate it and his calculations are that the Intelligender is approximately 80-90% accurate.  So of course, don't go buying pink or blue quite yet, but it is fun and fairly reliable!

So we are thinking Boy and Blue...and have NO CLUE for a Boy name!  So feel free to suggest any boy names that you like!  We have an awkward last name, so there are many that just cannot be used, but we are desperately looking for a boy name that we both love!

Here is the Christmas belly shot!

Also, one other little note.  After many very mean, rude, falsely led, and just plain hurtful emails and comments (which have been deleted) I will no longer be doing weekly pregnancy updates.  I will do one from time to time like today, but they will not be weekly or regular.  I hope you can understand.

If you are pregnant, how many weeks are you?  Do you know what you are having or are you going to find out?  How are you feeling?  Here's to happy healthy pregnancies!


  1. Sorry that somebody (or more than one somebody) was mean to you about your weekly updates. I, for one, was enjoying them. Glad to know things are going well for you. :)

  2. it is important to know how many weeks is a pregnancy you are immediately to determine if your infant will be delivered normally and healthy.
