boy or girl? {& a giveaway}

This giveaway is now closed.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As you probably know, I am SUPER excited to find out whether we are having a boy or a girl at our next sono on January 27th. I don't really have any predictions or preferences.  I have no idea how I would know what I'm having because all the things like heart rates, being sick or not, and Chinese gender charts are all "old wives tales".  I have no preferences, because I feel like it doesn't really matter what you have for your first baby.  A healthy baby is all we are praying for. Boy or girl, it doesn't matter to me.  I'm just excited to finally know!!  

I came across a fun little opportunity to "find out" what we are having a little early.  I say "find out" because this fun little opportunity is only 80% accurate.  

My longtime friend/college roommate/maid of honor, Brittany, works for a company called Splash Media.  They do social media marketing.  One of Brittany's new clients happens to be Intelligender.

{IntelliGender's Gender Prediction Test is the fun pre-birth experience moms are talking about! You can discover whether you’re having a boy or girl as early as 10 weeks pregnant along. It is a urine-based test that is easy to perform in the privacy of your home, with results ready in minutes!  IntelliGender's Gender Prediction Test bridges the curiosity gap between conception and sonogram.}

Brittany immediately thought of me whenever she took on this new client, so look who I got a little package from in the mail today!!
 As you can see they sent me not just one but TWO Gender Prediction Tests.
I'll be using mine sometime this week and I'll be giving the other one to one of you {or someone you know}!!

Here's how you can enter to win......
{You have 3 chances to win. So make sure you leave 3 separate comments!} 

1.  Follow my blog, and leave me comment telling me that you do! 
{You have to be an "official follower" through Google Friend Connect.  All you have to do is click Follow on the left hand side of my blog and log in! You will not be eligible to win if I don't see you as one of my followers.}

2.  Leave a comment guessing whether you think we are having a boy or a girl!

3.  Tell me who you know that would love to have a Gender Prediction Test! 
{If you are not pregnant and don't know anyone that is pregnant, you can totally say that you are going to take it for yourself to use in the future.  It doesn't expire until 12-2012!}

I'll be announcing the results to our test and the winner of the giveaway on
Friday, January 21st!!

Good luck!!

I can't believe that it is so close to you finding out. How amazing and special is that:) Congrats!

Alicia said...

I want to say a little girl but sadly I have been wrong about half the time so who knows that that means!

Alicia said...

First of all how cool is that product! Love it! Well if I were to win the giveaway I guess I would keep it for myself as all of my ladies that I know are having little boys and obviously know their gender:) So I guess future use for me:)

Rachel said...

I follow you blog, but have never left a comment. Congratulations on your new bundle of joy.

Rachel said...

I think that you are having a boy. I was extremely sick when I was pregnant with my daughter and showed almost immediately.;)

Rachel said...

I would keep it for myself. Hopefully, I will need it before 12/12. :)

I think you'll have a girl. ((I also think you'll have the cutest creative baby room - which is why I'm hoping for pink sparkles)). We are so happy for you two.

Suzy said...

I would like to use it for myself in the future... That's a long expiration date. :)

Suzy said...

I subscribe to your blog - not sure if that counts as following! :)

Lauren said...

I think you are having a girl!

Lauren said...

I can't think of anyone pregnant who doesn't know the gender yet, so I'd keep it for me! Thanks Katy!

Michelle_B said...

Michelle_B said...

Ashley said...

You should have made this my bday present!!! Of course you know I follow you, you're my sister in law! I think it's boy, I've thought that since the minute you told me you were pregnant! We'll see how right I am in a couple of weeks. I want this test for myself, obviously. I still have 6 more weeks until I find out and it's KILLING me to wait.

Ashley said...

I'm writing you again because the first time I put all of my answers in one comment like a dummy. I can't wait to know if it's a boy or girl. I want to start shopping since I won't know about me for a few more weeks.

Ashley said...

I want to win this because I am too cheap to buy one of these tests for me. I think they run from $10-$30

Jodi said...

Hi Katy, of course I follow your blog, love it!

Jodi said...

I am going to say for some reason I think you are having a little girl! But I love my little boy soo much and know you would love a little boy too!

Jodi said...

I think I would keep the kit for myself. We hope to have another baby and I know this would be really fun to use!

Grannalisa said...

I would give the test to my daughter who is almost 14 weeks pregnant and is dying to find out if they are having a boy or girl. Like you - they don't care either way - they just want a healthy one!!

Julie said...

Julie said...

I would keep the gender prediction test for myself and get to use it eventually...although not sure about using it as soon as 2012, but who knows?!

The Cozads said...

I am casting my vote that it will be a boy!

Mommy Moseley said...

I've been following your blog for a while now, but I just now officially clicked the following button. Love reading your meal plans and recipes!

Mommy Moseley said...

I think you are having a girl, really only because it seems everyone I know is pregnant with girls right now!

Mommy Moseley said...

I would use the test for myself, I am pregnant as well and would LOVE to find out early!

Meredith - proud mom of THREE! said...

I follow your blog. Wouldn't that be lame if I didnt, considering I devoted an entire blog to WHY I follow you?

Meredith - proud mom of THREE! said...

I think you are having a boy. Just because I do.

Meredith - proud mom of THREE! said...

Id probably keep it for myself. You know...just in case. :-)

Brian and Jessica Ross said...

I predict a girl :-) But I'm partial.
