The Hollywood baby boom keeps right on rolling!
This week, several moms-to-be shared the sex of their babies... so which stars are painting the nursery pink and which are going blue? Read on!
Are Will and Kate going to have a little girl?
The Duchess of Cambridge was chatting with fans at an event in England on Tuesday when she may have had a slip of the tongue that revealed the sex of her unborn child.
After a woman handed her a teddy bear, Kate reportedly replied " Thank you, I’ll take that for my d..." and then stopped herself.
The secret is out - Holly Madison is expecting a girl!
Her boyfriend, Pasquale Rotella spilled the beans on Tuesday, tweeting a sonogram of the baby and writing "Off to Amsterdam and I already miss my girls."
Looks like he missed the memo that Madison didn't want to share the sex of the baby...
Pink or blue? When it comes to baby number three, Melissa Joan Hart wants to be surprised!
The 36-year-old actress is expecting her third child with husband Mark Wilkerson, and she says she won't be finding out the sex ahead of time.
It looks like Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler are going to have a little boy!
It's natural for a father who already has three girls to want a boy next time. But should he be able to make that choice? Reproductive technologies exist to make sex selection a reality. However, many people believe that sex selection is ethically wrong. The UN reports, for example, that every day in India, 2,000 women abort a baby girl. Called feticide, this is a form of sex selection. When sex selection occurs for medical reasons, many people support the phenomenon.
Sometimes the ultrasound just can't quite pick up the sex of your baby on your first visit. Or maybe you're waiting to be surprised at the time of delivery. Either way, there are more old wives' tales about guessing the gender of your baby then there are babies, it seems. While most of these methods have no scientific merit, they're still fun to toss around with your family and friends to keep the excitement and suspense of your baby's arrival in full swing.
Many soon-to-be parents want to know whether they're carrying a boy or a girl. Some will wait until the baby is born, while others will look to the ultrasound for the answer. Even before you can determine your baby's gender, however, you may be tempted to look to a pregnancy gender calculator to predict if you're having a boy or girl.
The only sure way to have a baby boy, according to In-Gender.com, is to use the high-tech method of preimplantation genetic diagnosis. This method involves fertilizing the egg with sperm in a laboratory, then testing the resulting embryos to determine their gender. Any male embryos are then implanted in the woman's uterus. This method is expensive, and some say it is unethical. There are other, less-extreme methods on conceiving a baby boy, but none of them are fail-proof.
Many women dream of having a baby girl, but there is only one sure way to conceive a baby girl, according to the Stanford School of Medicine. That way, called preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD), involves fertilizing an egg, then testing the embryo to find out if it's a boy or girl before implanting it in the uterus. This expensive procedure is controversial but allowable for family balancing in some countries, including the United States. There are other, less invasive, ways of increasing your chances of conceiving a girl.
