31 Weeks
Doing a graph lesson with my 3rd graders. They got to make a graph guessing whether I am having a boy or a girl!  I made them wait until May to find out what I was having. I had known since February that I was having a girl but I didn't tell my kids I was even pregnant until March. I started hearing them whispering about how I was getting "bigger" and some brave kids starting asking me if I was was pregnant. My response to them was, "why do you think I'm pregnant?"

One day, in March, as we were getting ready to go home. All my kids were in line. It was one of my favorite days when I asked them about a "rumor" that I had been hearing. I was totally serious when I asked them. I asked them if they had heard that I was pregnant. They all said yes!! I then asked why they thought I was pregnant. At this point I started calling on students who where raising their hands. I wish I would have recorded it because I was dying with some of there comments. One said, "because your getting fatter in your belly. It just keeps getting fatter and fatter and fatter." Two boys said, "well  me and him have been looking at your belly everyday and it is just getting bigger and bigger"... The one  student caught on that maybe that was weird that they had been looking at my stomach everyday and said, "I haven't been looking." I had one girl tell me, "You are married so you have to be pregnant." I had many more hilarious questions. 
Almost all the girls choose that I was having a girl and all the boys choose that I was having a boy. Out of my 32 kids I only had 9 boys!
Happy Birthday Jayne!
