Anyone with gender feelings yet?

post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 
If this baby is not a girl I will eat my hat. I've been having strong "it's a girl" feelings since I found out I was pregnant and probably longer--I had a dream about a week before I found out I was pregnant that I had a baby girl. Daddy also thinks it's a girl and we call her "she" already. (yes, we do plan on finding out )

I have no idea, really. Sometimes I call it a he and sometimes I call it a she. My dh says it's a boy and my mom says it's a girl. We'll find out in about 14 weeks or so!

I keep thinking girl, but I really want a girl, so that might be influencing it.

Last time, I thought it was a boy, and I turned out to be right, so I am 1 for 1. Last time, when I went in for my 20 wk U/S, the tech told me that the moms almost always know.

I definitely have a boy feeling.

I really don't have a feeling, but have been stressed about not having boy names that I really like, so maybe that means something. I didn't have a strong feeling with my DD, either, though if pressed I would say "girl".

I have no real preference, either.

DH and I have both caught ourselves calling him/her a "he" so far. The Chinese prediction chart says a girl though. I have no gut feeling about it yet.

DH does have a 3+ generation pattern of Boy-Girl-Boy. So, he's pretty positive we will be having a boy for #1. As the youngest girl, I will say I really liked having an older brother to look out for me......either way I'm just WAY happy to finally be having this experience!!:

After having 3 boys I seriously can't even imagine having a girl. I will be very happy with either. I have not had gender feelings, but I do keep getting the impression that there are two. Again I will be very happy either way. It will be a long while before I know. We will only have an u's if it is medically indicated.

I think girl. But that might just be because I want a girl (I have two boys already). Ds#1 insists there is no way he can have another brother, it HAS to be sister, but he's been lobbying for a sister for a while so who knows.

I'll find out in July when this LO comes out!

I have a feeling it's a boy and I was right with my other LOs, but we'll see!

Did anyone try for a specific gender? I did.

I used Taking Charge of Your Fertility as a guide and tried for a boy. My DH and I would be totally OK with having another girl, but I wanted to see if we could succeed at having one of each. But we won't know for sure until the day it's born because we've decided to keep it a surprise again.

I suspect I'll call it "him" and "he" all the way up to delivery since I was trying for a boy...

I absolutely think this baby is a boy, and feel totally comfortable saying "he" when referring to him. I had a m/c the cycle before I conceived this little one, and felt strongly I was expecting a boy. I feel like it's the same "baby" that I'm pregnant with now.

No! And it's driving me nuts! With DS I *knew* he was a boy. Part of it though was likely the timing (with him, we dtd the day of O and the day before). This time it would have been several days before and so I have no clue and no strong feelings :

With my daughter I knew she was a girl from the bfp, this time I don't know. It worries me because with my m/c I didn't have a feeling. Maybe my mommy intuition is wearing out. haha

I kind of want a girl just because my daughter might disown a boy.... haha! I have been more inclined to look at boy names so maybe I am in denial!

We will find out. I shouldn't because my sis n law just had twins, a boy and a girl so I don't have to worry about shopping ahead of time, but I can't stand the suspense!

I'm thinking we're having a boy. After DD was born DH and I both felt our family wasn't complete and to me it felt like there was another boy who wanted to join our family. The other night my six year old said "Mommy, when you have a baby again and it's a boy can we play with him?" During my last pregnancy my oldest DS kept talking about his sister, even before we found out. I'm planning on finding out what we're having.

No clue this time and I'm really not trying to pick up any vibes, but I'm so excited to find out! I really want a girl, but DH has made 2 boys already so odds aren't in our favour.

That being said, with DS I was positive he was a girl! I mean, even after the ultrasound I couldn't hardly believe it and thought I wouldn't be surprised if it was wrong somehow....I was that certain, but nope, out he came a definite "he".

GIRL!

I'm not totally sure, of course. But myself, DH, ALL my friends all say they think it's a girl. I am only drawn to a girl name, and no boy name feels right at all.

I am planning on finding out too. I can't (don't want to) wait until birth.

TCOYF says you'd have a 70% chance of a girl in that case... I knew immediately with my last PG that I was having a girl because we BD four days before I O'd.

Good to know. It's been a long time since I read the book on choosing your baby's sex so I didn't realize it's that high. I guess we'll work on the girl names and mentally prepare. I think DH is scared to have a girl...too emotional

I'm thinking girl. Or not boy is more accurate.

I have a feeling I am having a boy. I thought I was last time, and I was wrong, so we'll see. I will be happy either way (but I am hoping for a girl!)
