How I knew bump would be a girl

     I had an intuition that it was going to be a girl. Tyler did too.
Maybe we were secretly hoping for a girl?!  
There are so many old wife's tale/myths about determing the sex of your baby.
I didn't want to base it all on silly games but I eventually caved and let my mom try a few on me. In Brazil they hide a fork and a spoon under your couch cushion and depending on which cushion you sit under that's what you get. The fork = boy, and spoon= girl. (I got the spoon). 

I also found this fun quiz online that helped me out.
Here are my results:
You have a 11% chance of having a boy. And you have a 88% chance of having a girl.
And Here's Why...
You are carrying the extra weight around the hips and bottom, so it's a girl.
The hair on your legs is not growing any faster during your preganacy, so it's a girl.
Girls are carried high. You are going to have a girl.
Sleeping in a bed with your pillow to the south indicates that you will be having a girl.
Your feet are not colder than they were before pregnancy. You are having a girl.
Dad-to-be hasn't been gaining weight along with Mom-to-be, so it will be a girl.
The maternal grandmother doesn't have gray hair (dyed or natural), so a girl will be born.
You had morning sickness early in pregnancy, so you are expecting a girl.
You are looking particularly good during pregnancy. Therefore, it must be a boy, because girls steal their mother's looks.
Your chest development has been quite dramatic during pregnancy. You should expect a girl.
Since the sum of the mother's age at conception and the number of the month of conception is an odd number, it will be a girl.
A needle on a thread held over your belly moves in circles, so you will have a boy.
Your urine is a dull yellow color, so you will have a girl.
You are craving sweets, which means that it is a girl.
Your nose hasn't changed during pregnancy, which indicates a girl.
You have been craving fruits, so it is a girl.
Your baby's heart rate is 140 or more beats per minute, so it's a girl.

Tyler read somewhere that if you're extra moody, then it's for sure a girl. Oh. That explains it then :)
