Battle of the Sexes

Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek!
Now I've got that off my chest, I have to share with you why. This little chart below should provide some explanation:

Yes . Writing this on Tuesday 18 June means I literally have to get my head around the fact that in a week's time I could be pregnant! All those days, weeks and months spent thinking about all things baby have boiled down to what could occur in the next few days. The thought is equal parts terrifying and exciting. I know those of you who have been in this position will know exactly what I'm talking about and those who are not quite there yet.........well you will know!


There is also additional pressure....Hubby is desperate to have a baby boy, so we have decided to try for this the first time around. After much reading (and a helpful girlfriend who successfully planned and had two boys) I think we are on the right track for a blue one . There are many tips and tricks out there for "gender selecting", but I found these the best:


For you - http://makeupandbeauty.com/pregnancy-diet-conceiving-baby-boy/
For him - http://sandydeanarticles.com/what-should-a-man-eat-to-conceive-a-boy-or-a-girl-bbay/
For you both - http://www.birth.com.au/Shettles-method/Shettles-method-for-boys
For fun - http://www.motherhood.com.au/articles/chinesechart.htm


Obviously diet, position, day in cycle play a large role in the so-called gender selecting. What have you found worked for you or what have you heard about and are willing to try?


I look forward to your responses :)


Until the next.


Who knows, Baby...?

Planning as best you can

Cycles, vitamins, leave, planning - do all or some of these words sound familiar to you? Then I imagine you are in the same stage of your life as I am. I cannot count the amount of times these words have been uttered in our house over the past few months. The combination of these words usually equals one thing, B+A+B+Y = BABY.

So where to begin...

Lately it has come (or rather been brought) to my attention that I might be a little bit of a control freak. When January 2012 rolled around, my husband and I began to actively discuss having a baby.

BUT

I then did the maths and realised something. I did not want to come off the pill in January and wait three months for my body to regain its regular cycle. For those who can count, this meant we would be having a Christmas baby. In no way did I want this. (I am very aware some of you will think this is ridiculous so bear with me). I have and have had several friends born around Christmas time and an Aunt born on Christmas Day and every year I feel sorry for them and their "combined present". Not only this, but they do not usually get to have a party and if they do, its usually a small affair as many people go away over the Christmas holidays. How sad would that be for a kid?! I feel that as long as we are planning for this baby, we can decide to have it born away from Christmas time.

Now, my husband thinks I am going slightly overboard on the control level, though others do see my point - I guess the jury is still out on that one.

So here we are in June and yes I have come off the pill, but at the end of March, which takes my three month finish date to the end of this month. Exciting times ahead and updates provided as things progress!!


For those of you who are still in the planning stages like me, I am interested in your thoughts and feedback of planning for a baby. Also, those who have been in the baby planning stages during your life, how did this go for you and what ideas did you have at the time? I'd love to read your comments below.

Until the next...

P.S I found this site as a great means of all things baby: www.babycenter.com.au - they even have an iPhone App, so no excuses now :)

Greetings from the Tampa Bay :) My name is Lea, and I am the author of Mother Baby Child - http://motherbabychild.blogspot.com. I started this blog to share my experience in having a baby just before my 1st son was about to turn 18 years old, as well as what life is like as a married mom after being single for so many years. I also blog about Christianity, baby and child stages, homeschooling, ADHD, Autism, Blog Marketing, etc. I share a lot on that blog during the non-summer seasons.

I also have a new healthy lifestyle choices and weight loss blog - http://burnfatloseweightgetskinnyfeelgreat.blogspot.com - to accompany my Skinny Body business. I am working hard to complete the design of this new blog, so that I can provide valuable health lifestyle and weight loss information, as well as to share a solid opportunity for moms that want / need to make money by working at home.

I invite you to explore my blogs and provide your feedback.

I have GFC and my network links on both of them.

Now that my baby is older, I have more time to meet the moms. I am really excited about this!

I look forward to reading your blog and networking with you here at MBC :)

Hugs & Blessings!
