I couldn't really answer the poll, because I've had 3 pregnancies. For me, m/s seemed to get worse with each one, regardless of gender. 1st was a boy with minor, occasional nausea. 2nd was a girl, lots of nausea, frequent, but not daily, vomitting. 3rd was a boy, with daily nausea and vomitting for the first 15 wks or so.

I voted other. Two pregnancies, one girl and one boy, no morning sickness whatsoever.

I was soooo sick for the first 4 months of my first pregnancy - and delivered a girl. I was pregnant again right away with my son and had him within the year. I had no morning sickness with him - or maybe I was just too tired to notice :LOL .

I was nauseous until 16 weeks with lots of dry heaving but I only threw up once so I kind of considered myself lucky

I had a girl

I had a boy, but I was mildly morning sick. I only threw up two times, but I was nauseous constantly. I think that I sort of mentally stopped myself from throwing up, because it's very traumatic for me, and also, I just didn't have the time to be sick.

With #1, I had no morning sickness. I had a girl.

With #2, I have had no morning sickness. I think it's a boy, but won't be finding out for sure until he's born in April.

Three pregnancies; m/s was worst with the first pregnancy, and much less severe with the second and third. Boy, girl, girl.

I had severe morning sickess with both my boys, plus my girl who I lost. It's wasn't as bad for Lily as it was the boys, but it still kept me off my feet.

I, too, would like to hear your hypothesis. I voted no sickness, boy. The only time I was sick was when I ate bad Garlic Shrimp from China Palace. :

I read that morning sickness is a protective measure designed to prevent the mom from eating items that could hurt a fetus. So, the more MS you have, the better chance you have of carrying a healthy baby to term.

I was sicker than a dog with both. I couldn't even keep water down with dd :Puke
But, the difference was migraines. I had migraines EVERY day for THREE months with ds, AND a 3 1/2 yr. old to entertain...
My mw said she could almost guarantee that it would be a boy. (she had migraines while pregnant with her boys) Considering migraines are sometimes caused by hormonal fluctuations, I believed her.

I never throw up but i had nausea with my first for 5 months,a girl.For 3 months with my second,a boy.For 2 weeks with my third,a girl.For a month with my fourth,a girl.

I found it depended on healthy i was.The better shape i was in the less i had.

No multiple choice?

With dd I was sick every day. So sick at one point that I was vomiting blood.

With ds1 I was mildly sick. A few vomits, lots of nausea.

With ds2 I was very ill for about a month. Doesn't sound like a long time now but I thought I was dying.

I was really sick with all of my pregnancies. But it was FAR worse with my boy than with my girls.
post #39 of 57
twin boys, all-day/all-nite sickness for 4 1/2 months.
post #40 of 57
I barfed my guts out with both pregnancies, and they are both girls. So far I have only puked twice, compared to 20+ times a DAY with dd#2. I'm hoping that means a boy.
