I've had no feelings whatsoever about anything so far. What are you ladies going by? Are you just guessing or do you really have some sense of the stuff you're putting down?

I'm terrible at guessing/estimating ANYTHING though, so this is probably where my problem is coming from!

Mine were pretty much pure guesses. Except I do feel that this lil bean is a girl...

I'm basing some of it on my previous pregnancy and birth experience. I think those of us who have other children have a bit of an advantage in this prediction business, although each pregnancy and birth a woman has can be totally different.

With my first pregnancy, I just had a strong feeling it was a boy, but I thought he was going to be born after my EDD and he came two weeks before it! I got the idea that he would be late from the fact that I was born a few days after my mom's EDD and my cousin's kids were both late too. I don't have a sister, but if you do and she has kids, her experiences may be indicative of yours.

But yeah, mostly it's just a fun guessing/intuition game.

Part guess, part history, part intuition.

I had a really, really vivid dream about the birth-- and it was just sooooo peaceful and so different from all my other dreams. Of course, I reserve the right to be wrong

I'm basing some of mine on past experience, some on intuition, some on hopes
