i can't tell by any of the online old wives tales, but based on how good i feel so far, and lack of horrendous acne and hives (usually estrogen based) i'm leaning towards boy. also, gold ring test (right last time, which was the only time i've really tried it) said boy.
LOL - my kids said the same thing! I asked them what they wanted for Christmas (right after we found out but hadn't told them yet), and first they asked for a puppy. When I said we'll think about it, they paused thoughtfully, then said "OK - then how about another baby? Pleeeease?" 'Cause, you know, that's the next logical leap from a puppy!
BTW - What is the gold ring test? Have to try that!
I'm leaning toward girl this time, for 2 reasons: 1) we started TTC at the first sign of fertility, so there would have been some swimmers "waiting" for ovulation, and 2) I had RAGING hyperemesis with both boys, but hardly anything with our girl, and this one has been similar. But even though I don't get sick much, every time I throw up in the morning, DH says "Oops - it's a boy!" We'll see!!
Oh yes, and people have been saying girl because I'm already showing, carrying "high & wide"...emphasis on the WIDE! LOL
