LOL!  He might make you wait another baby or two though.  I thought the same thing when I was pregnant with my 3rd (wanted a boy desperately) but God knew what we needed at that time, and apparently it was another girl.  We did get a boy for our 4th though.

 

For me, I have pretty close to zero intuition.  The only one I was right on was our 4th, I knew he was a boy.  But I thought others were boys and was wrong all the other times.  Of course, I think this ones a boy too.  But who knows.  I'm pretty bad at this game.  I keep referring to the babe as "he" unconsciously, but that could just be because my last one was a boy and I've gotten used to that.  I also have a boy name picked and feel like this baby fits that.  I haven't even given consideration to girl names.  And my oldest talked about her new baby brother that was coming a week before I found out I was pregnant.  Given all those factors, I'll be surprised if this one is not a boy, but I'd be happy with another girl.  I really don't care too much one way or the other this time.  I think it'd be nice to have another boy since they'll only be 18 months apart, but if it's a girl, I'm sure they'll be very close still.

I really really think this one is a girl because I feel differently than I did last time. It may be because I really want a girl,and not because I have any sort of intuition or anything.

With the first two, we thought girls.  I had great skin, thick hair...  For DD2, we only 1/2way had a boy name picked out.  DD1 had a neutral name but we would have had to change the middle name.  We did have a u/s with both of them.  With DS, we didn't have a u/s, but I knew from the beginning that he was different.  I gained weight mainly in my belly and with the girls, I gained more all over.  Not that 50+ with each isn't all over anyway... Plus, my hair kept falling out and my skin was bad and dark hairs grew in more places than they usually do.  blush.gif

 

I'm thinking boy this time because the same things are happening.  Bad skin, only showing in belly, loosing some hair and gaining other hair.  LOL!  Every thought is "he," so I hope so.  DH wants a u/s this time, so who knows what will happen regarding that.  It drove him nuts to not know with DS.

I'm thinking boy this time. 

 

My first (DD) I didn't have a clue, didn't matter either way. DH said boy, my grandma said girl....grandma was right and we still joke about it today! We didn't find out gender before birth, so it was fun joking throughout the pregnancy.

 

My second (DS) I wasn't sure, and didn't want to be told gender at the u/s, just if we saw something that was fine, but we didn't want it confirmed. So, we thought we saw boy parts, actually we were pretty darn sure, but we never had it confirmed. We kept our suspicion a secret from everyone else and found out at the birth that we were correct!

 

My third (DS) I KNEW he was a boy. He died during pregnancy and was born still at 16 weeks. He was a boy. 

 

My fourth (current) as I said above, I'm thinking boy, but I'm not sure. I feel like with #2....acne like crazy!!! Ugh.

We do plan to have an anatomy u/s at about 20w, and I think we'll take the same stance as with #2...if we see something, fine, but don't confirm, and we'll find out at the birth! :) 

(Of course DD wants a sister and DS wants a brother lol.)

When I was pregnant with my son, I had a dream where I saw him as a grown man coming home to visit from college for Thanksgiving.  So I wasn't surprised at all when the u/s tech said he was a boy.  I also somehow knew he'd be "big and early," and he was a 34-weeker who weighed almost 6 pounds.  Go figure.

 

As a statistician, though, I'm still willing to ascribe the gender stuff at least to 50/50 chance.


I thought it would be fun to bump this old thread up, now that a lot of us have found out the baby's sex.  How did everyone else do?  My guess was girl, we found out yesterday that we're having another boy.  We're thrilled, of course, but I'm also really surprised!

Ha!  I was wrong.  I'm having a boy.  orngbiggrin.gif

I think my initial guess of boy was leftover boy feelings from losing our DS at 16 weeks last July. In the beginning of this pregnancy, I felt iffy...kinda boy and girl feelings; then that turned into more of a girl feeling, and we found out yesterday that's what we are having, a girl. 

post #28 of 33

I'm not finding our the gender but I want to get in on this gender guessing!  Last night I had my third boy dream.  I dreamed that my DH and I were at my dad's farm alone when I went into labor early and we both felt the head coming out so I knelt down and pushed very easily and we had a big ruddy faced boy!  My hubby and both remarked on how easy and pain-free it was.  So now I feel like it's for sure a boy and I'm hoping the birth goes exactly like the dream, quick and painless!  winky.gif

 

My DH still thinks it's going to be a girl.  That's what I wanted before we found out I was pregnant but now I'm kind of set on a little ginger boy like his papa!

It's a girl! And I'm totally psychic, I was just being modest in my last statement :D

post #30 of 33

Well just saw my previous reply when I was about 10 weeks and I predicted girl. Now, I am totally feeling BOY!! Saw our ultrasound yesterday, and while I didn't see any parts (we looked away at opportune times), the baby seems big (16oz) and I have had pretty strong boy vibes. My DH still says girl, as does my DD. It will be so awesome either way!

I predicted boy at around 10 weeks and I was right. In the mean time I had changed my mind, though and could have sworn "girl". My poor daughter said: Mommy, not ANOTHER brother! I don't think we will have another child so she will remain my only princess (a role she fills with no problems ;-)

My intuition told me it was a girl and it was right! Funny thing is I get the same symptoms with my girls but completely opposite symptoms with my boys.

post #33 of 33

I was convinced it was a boy the whole pregnancy.  I dreamt about DD having a little brother a few times (my dreams about DD were right), had completely opposite symptoms than DD (this time less nausea, less fatigue, great skin and hair, craving salty foods), assumed boy per Shettles, got boy results in the cabbage test, biorhythym chart leaned towards boy, etc.  And most of all a strong gut instinct that it was a boy.  The only anomaly was the Chinese Gender predictor test (which btw was wrong for my Mom's pgs with my brother and me so I didn't put much stock in it).

 

But it's a girl!  I didn't even think we'd have to think of girl's names (super hard for us) vs boy's names (easy!).  But two ultrasounds have confirmed it so I don't think there will be a boy popping out in July! orngtongue.gif I'm still in shock.
