Place Your Bets: Boy or Girl?

Okay, y'all...we are scheduled for our anatomy scan ultrasound on July 6th.  If baby ninja cooperates we'll get to find out if it's a boy or a girl! Eric and I are both so excited and can't wait to start choosing a name.

Many have asked us if we would prefer a boy or girl. Truth be told, I am so torn and here is why:

I am the oldest child in my family and a girl (duh).  My mom is also the oldest and a girl, her mom and her grandma were also the oldest and a girl.  Carrying on this generational tradition would be an honor.  It would also be fun to have the first girl in our circle of friends.

My brother David just had a baby boy and my brother Alex has a boy toddler.  Most of our friends from church have a boy... or one of each.  If we had a boy, he'd be in good company.

My gut:
I think my gut says boy but only because I call the baby "him" all the time.  This isn't founded on any particular hunch, just by what naturally comes out of my mouth.

Eric's gut:
Eric thinks it's a girl because I'm the oldest and his sister is the oldest.  His dad and my grandfather have both had dreams or visions that it's a girl, too.

What do you think? Post your thoughts!
