yes. we have *baby* news.
In the 1970s, Dr. Landrum Shettles, M.D., Ph.D., developed a scientifically based, fairly simple way in which to increase your chances of having a boy or girl. While various studies have shown the Shettles method to be quite successful, I must emphasize here that its overall effectiveness is still widely disputed in the medical community. Dr. Shettles himself claims that it is about 80-90 % effective for choosing boys, and 75-80 % effective for choosing girls, when the method rules are followed correctly.
So...our all-knowing, ever present and loving Father above is in heaven now laughing at us, thinking..."and you thought you could "help me" in creating your child, hugh...how'd that work for ya?"
yep. umm. it didn't.
you guessed it.
we are delighted and thrilled to know that we will be welcoming
another precious baby girl into our family come july.
while some are a tad bit disappointed...
they will come around and rally in the end.
