Older kid "premonitions"?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

Does anyone else have an older child who tells you what's going on in your belly?

 

Last night my daughter and I were in the bath and she put her hands on my belly and said "Hello girl baby." She's autistic, and mostly non-verbal, so this was shocking in and of itself, but when I asked her why it wasn't a boy baby she got really upset and said "No boys! Just a girl."

 

Now I'm really wondering if this baby is a girl. :P

We had dinner with friends last night and my girlfriend asked her little girl, "Do you know what's growing in her belly?" (pointing at my belly) And her daughter, who is three said, "There's a baby growing in her belly!" My friend said, "What kind of baby?" And she said "A girl baby!" I guess we'll have to wait and see!

Awwwww.

I'm waiting for the questions to come as to the gender of my baby. "What is it?" "A baby..."

My 3 year old keeps telling everyone that I have a boy baby in my belly. Not sure if she is correct, but it's fun to think she may know something I don't :)

We're getting a lot of girl from Nigella. Might be related to the fact that she has a brother already so a sister seems more exciting, or if it's actually some sort of intuition. Time will tell, I guess! She keeps asking when her sister will come out so she can hold her and play with her and what we're going to name her, "it needs to be a good name, a really really good name! Like... um.... Nigella!"

I don't have any kids, so I can't use them to predict the gender, but this does remind me of a story my husband told me. When he was young, probably kindergarden, He asked his Irish/Italian parents to "have a black baby." He was one of only a few caucasian children at school, and I guess he figured that after two white kids if was time for a black one. :D

That is ADORABLE!!! My little niece told me that I should have brown babies like Uncle D (my hubby). I let her know that I would do what I can. :)

Well, lets see. My oldest thinks it is going to be a boy, my middle daughter (who does her best never to agree with her big sister) believes it to be a girl. And the almost 2 year old is pretty sure it is going to be a cupcake. That is what I get for announcing this babe with baby shaped cup cakes. She is going to be so sad when her sibling is born and isn't covered in frosting.

Well the girls are lobbying for a girl, and the boys are lobbying for a boy. :) I don't think any of them have strong intuition in this case, just personal desires.

Mine keep saying "Girl"...I'm sure it is a boy. This is a case of Mom Vs. Kids LOL

My mother in law keeps saying "girl" and she's never been one to make predictions before, kind of interesting! We'll find out mid-december sometime, maybe!

love this. my three year old cousin asked me THE DAY AFTER I CONCIEVED if i was going to have a baby soon. we weren't exactly trying, but i had an inkling that something may have happened the previous day, so i was totally taken by surprise.

 

now that she knows i'm pregnant, she thinks i'm having a boy, but i think that's because she's going to have a little sister any day now so she's excited to be around one of each.

When I did ultrasound I found that many of the toddlers were right! It was crazy. DD (who is almost 5) wanted a girl, said it was a girl, but were having a boy. I think a lot of the young ones, really just know.

My six year old keeps saying the baby is a boy. Her reasoning is that it isn't fair to Daddy to be the only boy in the family. I don't that counts as intuition. She just wants thing even.
