Guessing Games

Well, tomorrow is our first "real" appointment with our new doctor. We have gone in for a "meet-n-greet" with him, and feel he is the best option we have right now as we try for a successful VBAC, but so far haven't had any other interaction with him. (I have to say, I have never ever wanted a male doctor, but at this point, I'm desperate to be done searching for anyone else. We feel the Lord helped us to find a good, knowledgeable doctor who has a very high rate of success with VBACs and a low rate of intervention (i.e., c-sections), so it's just something I'm going to deal with.)
21.5 weeks
Can you see anything?
I didn't think it turned out too dark
until I uploaded it onto the computer.

At any rate, I think we'll be having an ultrasound, so I thought it would be fun to see if any of y'all predict the baby's gender correctly. No giveaways or anything, so the only prize is the knowledge that you were right, okay? :P Any one care to take a guess?

Oh, but speaking of giveaways, did I tell you that I won one?! My friend Jen (whom we actually knew from when my family was first stationed in Japan over 12 years ago), recently had a giveaway on her blog, and I actually won!!! You may not find this to be as exciting as I did, but seriously, I *never* win anything, so it was a huge shock (and I may or may not have done a little happy dance when I found out :P). I finished the book the first day, but we're still working on the cocoa. :o) Thanks again, Jen!
Anyway, we'll be heading out of here Monday morning, so since I'll not likely be on here again until after the New Year, I just wanted to say...

Merry Christmas, everyone!
May you have a wonderful
celebration of the birth of our Lord.

Hugs,

Arlene

I'm not sure I would want a male doctor either, but I do pray that you are able to have a successful VBAC with your little one...which I am guessing is another boy. =) Have a great Christmas!

I'm feeling blue so it must be a boy. They're so much fun too, you're little man would love to have a little brother.
My boys, now 17 and 14 are best friends and they have meant so much to each other.
anyhow, I'm going with Blue!

Arlene, you look so cute expecting a little one!
I have to guess...um...I don't know!
I'll say it's a girl. But I could be wrong; I've only guessed about half of my own correctly!
And I'm so glad you enjoyed the giveaway. I'm holding off on the others until after Christmas, so you might win again!
Have fun and take it easy on your trip.
