We found out this morning that baby #3 is also boy #3! I was thinking this one was a girl, but I'm really not at all surprised that he's a boy (all of my pre-pregnancy visions of this baby were of another boy, and the name that came to me was a boy's name). He looked great on the u/s (and very familiar, if it's possible to tell at all what a baby looks like on an u/s), and I'm feeling more excited than ever to hold him in my arms.

Anyway, I'm wondering what the sex stats. are for our ddc (for those finding out), and if your predictions turned out to be right or not.

Happy, healthy babies for all!

Well, I knew all along in my heart that this one was a boy...and oddly enough so did most of my close friends So, my intuition was right-on - woohoo!

Yay for three boys! My first three were boys and I thought every time they were going to be girls. It should have been a clue to me when I thought this baby (a girl!) was definitely going to be a boy. I have backwards intuition!

I too have backwards intuition.

I have called it he for the preg up to now, but I knew it was a girl.....if that makes sense.

We are expecting a little girl.

We couldn't really tell at our u/s at 12.5 weeks. The tech saw a speck, the doc saw a speck, we saw a speck, but . The tech and the doc both said 80% probability that the baby is a boy. (I mention the tech and the doc separately because they each did a scan while the other wasn't in the room.)

With dd, I really wanted a girl and dh *really* wanted a girl. He wants a girl again--he's a teacher and I guess he thinks boys are bigger headaches or something. Personally, I want to have a boy at some point. For whatever reason, I don't think MY son will be a headache.

We'll find out (if baby cooperates) July 7th!

I found out on Tuesday. With my other 3, I was totally right. This one, I was completely wrong. I thought we were having a baby girl, but we most definitely have a baby boy in there.

I wanted a girl so bad there was no way my intuition could tell me anything. We didn't see any body parts on the ultrasound but the tech said she got a glimpse of a penis in passing. So I say 75% certainty that it's a boy. I'm so sad.

Wow a ton of boys! I'm anxiously waiting until July 6 when we'll hopefully find out. It was originally scheduled for July 10, but my DH called me and asked if I could get it rescheduled since he was going to have to leave for a business trip that day, so I called the OB's office and they're closed on Fridays (July 7), so I got to move it from Monday to Thursday prior. Yipee!

I really think this one is a girl, but we'll see. I keep calling the baby "she", and just can't bring myself to call it a "he". I have one boy already, and he's so much fun! So either way, I'll be happy. With my boy, I knew he was a boy. I had girl dreams (girl CAT dreams, actually), but I still knew he was a boy, and I called him "he" all the time. We'll see if intuition is right a 2nd time or not!

we're having a boy as well!
i didn't have a strong intuition with this baby like i did with dd (i just felt she was a girl).

I knew from the very start it was a boy. I don't know, something just told me.... I believe in "ask and ye shall receive" and I truly wanted a boy this time. Everyone else in my family including DH wanted a girl but too bad.... Momma gets what momma wants....IT'S A BOY!!!!

Kyle is having a baby sister!! So it's not a cat after all!! Everyone guessed girl since it was so different than my first pregancy.

I just knew with all of my babies... with these 2 i had no clue... i think its because i have no maturnal instincts with them because I am not there mother... just the carrier.

I had a feeling it was a boy...and I was

right!!
It wasn't an overwhelming feeling or anything, but I thought maybe it was. I even had bought a really boyish outfit just before we found out and I was thrilled when I knew we could use it...he he...of course, earlier in the pregnancy I had bought a few girl things, as I didn't have such a strong feeling then. :-)

I'm happy and thrilled and would have been happy either way. It would have been nice to have a girl too since we have a little boy but then again, it is thrilling to have another boy. So whichever way I look at it, it is all good.
My son is SO excited to have a brother and that really helps build my excitement too!

I forgot to vote on my tuition part, I was totally right! I knew she was a girl from the very beginning.
post #16 of 24

Was supposed to find out an hour ago...

I had an appt at 1pm and was going to find out the gender, but alas, my doctor has an emergency C-section! So I'm rescheduled for 3:45pm. The wait is KILLING ME!!!!!!! :

So hopefully I'll be able to vote in this poll tonight.

good luck, vera! ( i am on diaper divas,too!)

we just got back from ours and we are having another boy! it was a surprise to say the least- but we are happy and the babylooks great! now i can work on some diapers and knitting!!!
post #18 of 24

I voted! :)

Well, another BOY for me!!!!

The doctor pointed out the scrotum and penis and said "He's a BIG boy!" So the current names for baby would be "Well Hung" and "Long Wang"...

We are having girl (#3!!!)

I thought for SURE it was a boy but 100% certain she is a she (amnio).

We actually found out a few weeks ago but it took a good week or so for it to sink in that it was a reality, I was SO certain it was a boy!

Now the search for the perfect name begins......
post #20 of 24
My intuition was right on! I never had a doubt and I had dreamt about my baby three times... each time he was a boy. I already have his name picked out but I am not sharing until he is born. I am very excited even though I would have thought that raising a girl on my own would be more familiar (since I already have experience being a girl). I just want him to be healthy and have a safe arrival.
