My husband thinks I'm having a girl, but I don't know - I don't really have a strong feeling either way. I have had morning sickness this time, and I didn't with my boy, so maybe that's because it's a girl? Last time I craved pork and this time I don't really have any cravings - maybe a little for sauerkraut. But then again, I was a vegetarian before the pregnancy pork cravings made me give it up and this time I'm not a vegetarian. The Chinese gender prediction test says that I'm having a boy, but last time it said I would have a girl and I had a boy.
I'd really like another boy - I love the idea of my little guy having a buddy to play with. And I've got a boy name all picked out (Oliver). It's funny, because last time I thought I wanted a girl and I was so nervous about what it would be like to raise a boy. J is just the sweetest, cuddliest, nicest little guy though.
But the girls' clothes are insanely cute.
I'm definitely going to find out at the ultrasound - I'm practically counting the days. And I'm really happy because the OB told me today that we can do it before Christmas - I was thinking that a Christmas morning gender "reveal" would be so fun!
Let it Grow, me too! All I heard from DH were stories about how much he and his brothers used beat the crap out of eachother! How would I handle a boy or boys?? I didn't have brothers and didn't know anything about boys. But now, I am almost afraid to have a girl and not knowing what to do with one! My DS is a cuddly, energetic, but very thoughtful little guy. I am torn between wanting a boy and wanting a girl. I would like to have a girl eventually, so if I have one this time then at least I'd have that covered off if we don't have a #3!
Oh, ETA: I love a Christmas morning reveal! So exciting!
I had another person tell me this afternoon that they think we are having a girl. The votes for girl are far in the lead at this point, but who knows, right. This pregnancy has been rather different than with my ds, but that doesn't necessarily mean anything. I mean my mom was convinced that I was a boy because her pregnancy with me was the exact same as with my big brother. But it would be neat if it is a girl:) Well, I saw the midwife today and she said my ultrasound will be booked in the next week or two, not until 20 weeks though and I'm 11w3d.
I've had a feeling I have a little boy growing inside me. I'm not sure if its because I have an intuition or because I know thats what my husband really really wants (disclaimer:we want a healthy baby, whatever gender comes out. its just fun to wonder). I've heard the heartbeat rate can't be linked accurately with gender. I do know that I haven't felt sick, I've felt perfect in fact, and some say that there is a higher chance of sickness/nausea when you have more girl hormones circulating. But I know people who are VERY sick and were having boys. I guess I'll have to wait until my next Ultrasound (!!!) I have my next appt on the 5th and I'm 17.5 weeks, lets hope they will tell me :)
I had a dream last night that this baby is a girl. A chubby little girl with dark eyes and dark hair. Although I remember wondering where she got her looks from! lol. I am dark, but my husband is fair and DS has dark eyes but is quite fair. I am really convinced this babe is a girl as I have been from the beginning, and have had to resist the urge to buy girl things. But we won't be finding out until the babe is born.
So I've been feeling like I'm having a girl since the beginning... but for some odd reason everyone under the son swears I'm having a boy. When I say everyone I mean everyone. All of my students (I teach high school) say I am, all my friends, all my family. Even friends who don't know what my preference is have just blurted it out "you're having a boy." At first I wanted a boy so the fact that I was feeling like I was having a girl kind of disappointed me. But lately I've been wanting a girl anyway so I'm hoping that my feelings are right.
You ladies who already have kids, how often have your "feelings" been correct? I hope my feelings are. Although I'll be happy either way.
