Do you have any guesses on what your baby's gender is?
I felt like it was a boy since I got the positive test, but now I'm confused... part of me still thinks boy, but I'm having a lot more of the "girl" symptoms of old wives tales.
I don't have any "I'm fairly certain" feelings or ideas this time around, but I have an inkling it will be a boy. Fiance wants a girl this time. So I don't know. The only indicator either way is, I'm not puking all the time like I did with DD, but I still feel sick, like I was a little with DS. With DS, I woke up one day, I felt sick, and knew I was pregnant, took a test, confirmed what I already knew. With DD, I got sick at least five times a day.
This is definitely our last baby. We went back and forth on doing one and done, but I knew I would regret not having another. Two is our max. Either way though, I feel lucky, because of all the two kid combos (1 girl and 1 boy; 2 girls; or 2 boys), the only one I wouldn't have preferred is 2 boys. Since I already have DD, I'm obviously going to get one of the combos I like.
I just want to KNOW either way. I'm not patient about waiting for information and right now my life is a big waiting game...waiting to find out the sex, waiting for DP to get interview invitations for school (knock on wood) and then hopefully waiting for an acceptance letter, waiting to find out if we'll be moving (for school), waiting, waiting, waiting.
I was CERTAIN from the get go with both my daughter and son that I was having a girl and a boy respectively. This time I feel less certain for sure. I also feel less vibes about personality already, which depending on my mood troubles me. With both the other sprouts I had these strong senses of who they were almost immediately and if you read my pregnancy journals they are eerily dead-on. It kind of freaks me out that I only get vague glimmers of this little person even though I know that is far more common than my previous experiences. When I'm being a neurotic pregnant lady (which thankfully is rare since I'm mostly pretty calm) I wonder if something is "wrong" or if maybe I'm having a missed miscarriage, even though I'm really really sick and my uterus is growing and I feel the sprite moving!
Anyway, my pregnancies with both my other kids were very, very similar so although I think this third time is slightly more similar to my first (i.e. my pregnancy with my daughter) I don't really think symptoms have much correlation with the sex of the baby for me. I guess I lean *slightly* towards girl but I definitely didn't get a strong and immediate vibe like I did with the other two, so I'm prepared to be surprised this time.
no inkling, but I'm not afraid to admit I really really want a girl. Dh mentions it better be a girl to anyone that asks. I know a healthy baby is really all that matters, but after 2 over-the-top strong-willed all-boy boys, I'm ready for a girl. I'm convinced little boys and little girls are an entirely different species, and I'd like to try the other!
I'm kinda thinking there is a chance this one might be a boy, mostly because with my other 3 I just knew they were girls - this time since I'm not "sure" it's another girl, I'm thinking there is a possibility it could actually be a boy lol. Who knows though!! Most people are just assuming it's going to be another girl since we "must just only make girls"
Don't think I was this sick with either of them and am now getting bonus migraines so the old wives tale of how you feel early on is telling me nothing.... The heartbeat one was accurate for the previous two - this one was at 169 last check (next check today!!) that would have me guessing girl... Who knows! All I know is either way I'm going to have a dissapointed kid lol!
I wish I could have boy/girl twins and both DH & I can be happy.
I want a boy for him so he can carry on his last name. I want a girl that is 'mine' and that I don't have to share (I have a step daughter). I also want to use my girl name. Shara = (Sherry + Kara) My mom (Sherry) has lung cancer and might not be around when baby is born. So it'd be nice to be able for my mom to know I'm having a girl and naming her that. I also want a girl so I don't have to fight the circumcision fight.
