Different Symptoms for Different Genders?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I know we're all too early to know if we're carrying pink or blue, so based on past experience have your early pregnancy symptoms been any different based on gender? 


All three of my boys were very similar in the beginning. This time around the all-day/evening sickness is a lot worse. I'm curious if it could be because we're team pink or because I'm maybe lower on some of my hormone levels. Hmmmmm....shrug.gif

I have zero prior experience, but this conversation always fascinates me - I'll definitely be lurking!

Symptoms haven't been a good indicator for me in pregnancies past.  I have 3 girls and 1 boy.  Every pregnant was different in some ways, and alike in others.  But none of them exactly the same.  I thought for sure I was having a boy last time.  Even in labor I was telling hubby..."See!  My boys just come early!"  As it was 39 weeks 1 day, the same I'd had my boy on, while the previous two girls were 40+ weeks both times.  Nope!  It was a girl!  I was SO shocked!

This pregnancy has been really different, so my midwife asked yesterday if I thought maybe I was using a different "recipe". Only time will tell though!

My pregnancy is pretty different than my fist so far. Although, I have a lot of different factors too--different dad with this pregnancy, now I am working full-time, and 5 years older...


My co-worker said that since I have been really nauseous than it might be a girl. Not sick at all with my boy... we will see.

I don't really believe that being sick necessarily means it's a girl. This is only my second pregnancy, but my first was a girl and I wasn't sick at all. This time I've had some slight nausea though.

This is my 7th pregnancy and I've never had morning sickness.  2 were miscarriages, but that means 5 haven't been.  So how sick you are isn't a good indicator of how healthy the pregnancy is either.  so many old wives tales.  :)  I have 3 girls, 1 boy, plus this one that we won't know until birth.
