Being Brickner : Baking Soda ... Boy or Girl?

Baking Soda ... Boy or Girl?

I'm not quite sure that I expected I would feel this way, but I truly am happy with a healthy Baby Brickner - whatever the gender may be.  Sure, when I was younger I certainly had visions of what my future family would look like ... as my husband could attest to.  In fact, during my junior year of high school, I had a specific plan to raise twin girls named "Whitney & Brittney."  (Seriously ... What was I thinking?!!)  Now that I am older, wiser, and the situation has gone from fantasy to reality - I can honestly say that I am already in love with the baby bean growing inside of me.  Boy or girl.

But that doesn't mean that we aren't anxious to know our fate.  The suspense is really hard to handle.  There have been many times (at Target, H & M, and Macy's, specifically) ... that I have wanted to buy one outfit for each gender and then take the other back once we knew the final verdict.  But in the meantime, in an effort to make the days go by faster, we decided to try out some of the "gender prediction" tests out there in cyberspace.  The baking soda test was our first experiment.

Yesterday, it's true ... I urinated in a cup filled with one teaspoon of baking soda.  The test reads: if it fizzes = boy, does nothing = girl.  Well ...




There was certainly no fizz.  So looks like TEST #1 = girl. 
Now just five weeks to patiently wait to find out how accurate the baking soda test really is.

Oh, and by the way ... my husband is having a boy.  His pee definitely brought on some fizz.
