Anyone else NOT getting sick? - Page 2

Lack of M/S and Gender?

ok, so I am now 6 weeks and 5 days, and in week 5 I had a couple days in a row where I felt iffy, but aside from some heartburn, and the occasional food aversion, I haven't felt tummy-sick. I am really hoping for a girl, which I realize sounds super vain since I lost 2 babies in the past 4 months-I'll be happy with any healthy baby, but my heart longs for a girl since this is my last one. My daughter is 14 and didn't want to move to Canada with me, so I've missed a lot of her growing-up, and feel like I would really love a little girl to pass on women's wisdom to!

But of course, with another boy, I'll be a Queen among Princes... So I win either way!

Anyhow, I'm wondering if this lack of M/S is a sign that I'm having a little boy!

Any thoughts?

Huh, I don't know--I haven't heard this. Is that an idea that's out there? My mom didn't have MS with any of her pregnancies, and we are all girls...

I guess my guess would be that gender wouldn't really make a difference w/MS, but I don't know!

That's the "Old wives tale"...they say you are sick as a dog with a girl and not so sick with a boy...which has been the case with me. I have a dd that is 8 and I was soo sick, and a ds that will be 2 in dec that I threw up once only bc I ate mcd's breakfast lol. This time I'm just really nauseas and just now starting to have an inkling that it's another boy. But everyone is pg, and it's just a tale IMO. Just like I've been craving sushi and my friend thinks I'm having a boy...I just think that my body needs a vitamin that sushi provides bc I craved sushi right after I had my ds. I dunno...but we won't find out for another 10 or so weeks. I don't even want to find out the sex but dh does and I know that I won't be able to handle not knowing if he does! Lol

We have that problem! I have always thought I wanted to be surprised but DH wants to find out. I don't know if I'll have the willpower not to find out knowing that I COULD know if we wanted to...but I do want to try to keep it a surprise.

Well this is my 3rd child(his second) and I just really don't want to know. It may be our last and I want some sort of surprise. But I'm not going to be a butt about it...it's not worth that I guess lol!

Just the last few days (right around 6 wks) I've started feeling nauseous off and on. Definitely when I'm getting hungry, but then sometimes when I'm eating too. Not bad enough to keep me from eating though - I'm just being more selective about what I eat. Hopefully this is as bad as it gets (;

Morning sickness has hit here!

Oh, and the old wives' tale about girl= more m/s is actually based in fact - girls tend to have higher HCG levels, so it's not unheard of to have more morning sickness with them. Same with twins vs. singletons.

Like I posted before, i have never thrown up while pg (4th pg) until yesterday! I am 8 weeks today and I am hoping it was a random incident.

I'm starting to feel a little iffier. I'll be 6 weeks tomorrow. Not exactly nauseous, just sort of sour stomach, and a lot of foods don't appeal to me. Milk makes my stomach feel better.

just like with ds m/s is starting to hit but it isn't that bad as of yet (i'm somewhere around 6-7 weeks, but i do not remember feeling so ravenous all the time with ds. I mean i have to eat almost constantly, well like every 2-3 hours, so my hunger pangs go away. I am not eating too bad, but i definitely need to up my veggies. I don't know how i can go along eating like this the whole pregnancy i will be huge! I just try to eat a fruit or nuts or crackers, but sometimes the cravings are horrendous, i had to make homemade chicken noodle soup last friday, I have never made it before! I ate it for a couple days and now the thought of it makes my stomach turn sour so i froze what was left in hopes i will want to eat it again soon.
