Post your hunch and win a prize!

Well, not really. Unless you consider recognition from the blogosphere that your hunch was correct a prize.

Tomorrow I go in for my 19-20 week sonogram and will find out if baby #4 is a boy or a girl, Lord willing. We know it's either one or the other, but I don't have a hunch either way. I could seriously wait until the birth date before finding out, but I also don't mind finding out ahead of time...to the great relief of everyone around me who wants to know NOW! We found out via sonogram that Christopher was a boy and then waited until the birth date to be surprised with both girls, and it was fun both ways. People argue that finding out ahead of time helps with preparation and gifts, but we are SO prepared either way! Aside from diapers, wipes and other consumables (which are all gender-neutral), we have all the clothing, bedding, equipment, etc. that this baby boy OR girl could possibly hope for. I guess people just want the emotional preparation. John tells me that he needs time to get used to the idea of what our family is going to look like. I'll buy that. It is fun to find out.

So be brave and post your guess in the comment section! You'll find out some time tomorrow whether or not your hunch was correct.

Boy and his name should be "John Michael" or "Michael John".

This morning at breakfast, Christopher said, "If it's a boy, I have a really good name. We could name him Bill Clinton." Christopher really thought that was funny.

Mindy is on her way to meet us for lunch so that we can open the envelope. She doesn't know either. I read all of your comments to her on the phone just now and she cracked up! BTW, our Sarah thinks its a boy.

Ok - here goes... I think it's a girl :) A boy would even things out at the McCracken household, BUT...would someone open the envelope???

Oops - obviously, I haven't figured out this blogger thing - the above anonymous was Tanya Foret.

I now know, but I promised Mindy that I would not tell and let her have the honors! So... breaking news to following soon...
