I guess I'm leaning toward female, but maybe that's just because I hear everyone talk all the time about how it's time for us to have a girl now? Since we have two boys, I guess? I don't know - we adore our boys and can't imagine not having another, really!

 

Our timing suggests a higher potential for a girl...if all of that is true. In fact, we missed the few days around O so much that I was really stunned I even got pregnant this cycle (that, and the fact that I ovulated a week after I stopped bleeding with my m/c). The first nurse I talked to say, "Oh, I'm thinking girl!" and then stopped herself quickly.

 

I'm still wishing for twins...and I guess I'm thinking 2 girls. That's such a huge dream of mine - 4 kids: 2 boys, 2 girls. I even said all along that I wanted a big gap between kids 1, 2 and 3, 4. I'm on track for a lot of that...only time will tell on the rest!

 

I can't imagine that disappointment that so many people get. I try to understand it, but I'm just over the moon excited to even have this opportunity, love having little boys so much, would love to have a girl...it just doesn't matter to me! I just love babies!

Yes! This right here is on point with me.

I think our timing also suggests higher potential for a girl, if FF is right about when I O'd. But then with DD we most definitely DTD right when I O'd. DH had just arrived in the US and we had one night of throwing caution to the wind and letting our passions get the better of us, and then the next morning I realized that I was probably ovulating so we went out and got Plan B, but by that time it was too late! So the timing would have been more likely to produce a boy.

 

I'm hoping that even though we missed O day and the day before that we still end up with a boy, but I'm definitely with you when you say that you don't get the extreme disappointment that some people feel when they don't get their preferred gender. I also don't get people who actively avoid BD around O, attempting to say for girl. I feel like the chances of catching an egg in any given month is so slim that I can't imagine missing out on chances when fertility is high.

This! I was too scared to avoid the days before O...I wanted the best possible chance we could get...but this time, I was confused and everything was wonky, so we dtd but missed 3 days before I o'd? (maybe two?)

I'm suffering morning sickness so I think it's a girl.  I didn't have any nausea with my boys but did with all 3 girls.
