I'm just now following this whole converstaion. FWIW, I'm glad to hear pi's perspective. I admit that the word "sux" definitely made me do a double-take and made my heart wrench a little bit, but at the same moment, I chose not to take offense and read more into it than a mama who is expressing her raw feelings in that moment of time. Absolutely everyone can have their own opinions, but it's still important to give each other the benefit of the doubt and try to treat each other as kindly as possible.
Back to the topic at hand, I did want to answer this brief little survey. :)
1) Do you know what gender you're having?
No, but we're hoping to find out at our 20wk u/s on May 16th!
2) If no, what gender to you THINK you're having? (Be sure to come back and update!)
I'm definitely leaning towards girl, though lately I'm starting to doubt myself about that. :-/
3) If yes, which gender?
4) Did you have a feeling you were having this gender?
We'll find out if my feeling is right in a few weeks!
5) What were your pregnancy symptoms or other things that led you to this feeling?
I've had 1 girl and 2 boys so far. I don't know if I'm reading into things, but there's a lot of circumstantial things that make me think girl, first of all: With my daughter, I conceived in February and found out just before Valentine's, right as we were in the middle of preparing our taxes. Her due date was Oct. 12th. This time, conceived in January again, found out just before Valentine's/in the middle of putting together taxes *again*. This one's due date is Oct. 5th. We lived in this apartment with our daughter. We moved back after 6 years of being out of state to this same apartment. So many similarities, right? And then there's the symptoms: I have terrible acne, everywhere. My breasts have been tender for months (it's finally starting to get better, but I still feel it badly when I first get up in the morning). I have pretty much no sex drive (I don't really remember with my daughter, but with my boys I was always in the mood). I hate eggs (I hated eggs with my daughter's pregnancy, too.) I also did the needle prediction test someone posted way back near the beginning of the DDC, which tells past and future children. It got my first three right: Girl, Boy, Boy. Then it said Girl, Boy, Boy again (I think I might die if I have 6 kids, and 2 more of them are boys, though). But anyway, if it's right, then this one should be girl. Plus, I just *felt* like it was a girl, and I've never *felt* it with any of my pregnancies. Never had a single clue or inclination at all. I hope it's not wrong. I want it to be right! I'm a little afraid of getting a girly girl, but my daughter wants a sister so badly, and I very much want a break from all the boy energy in this house!
