Dreams

I had the most vivid dream last night that I have ever had. I dreamed that Big John and I were bringing our baby home from the hospital. I strapped the baby in and climbed in the backseat. Big John got in the front seat and looked back at us and smiled. I looked down at our baby and said "Look at our daughter. Isn't she precious?" And then I woke up. They say that if you dream about the sex of the baby it usually comes true. I have a friend that is pregnant with her second baby and has correctly dreamed the sex of the baby both times. I am not sure if I believe all that or not. They also say that if your baby's heartbeat is over 160 beats per minute it's a girl and under is a boy. Ours was 179 beats per minute. So if you go by that and by my dream then we are having a girl. So I can confidently say that I am 50% sure that it's a girl...

What do you all think? Do you put much stock in your dreams? How many of you have correctly dreamed the sex of your baby??

Hey lady! My first comment on your new blog. Yeah!!! I don't remember dreaming the sex of my children, but I did feel very stongly that I was having a girl with Hannah and a boy with Luke. I even bought tons of little girl clothes before Hannah was even born. I do remember having very vivid and CRAZY dreams while pregnant, and I have a friend who had horrible nightmares. Your comment about being 50% sure it's a girl gave me a good laugh for the day.

My daughter's heart rate was 169 at 8 weeks. It then dropped and stayed at 140-145 the rest of the pregnancy. I thought for sure I was having a boy because of the heart rate and because everyone told me I would. But, as we found out at the ultrasound, we were having a little girl.
