so i'm wondering what your experience has been regarding if your pregnancies were different with your boy baby/ies and girl baby/ies.

personally, this pregnancy seems to be very different from my last. a lot of my mama friends tease (some serious) that maybe it means this one will be a boy.

what are your thoughts? were your pregnancy experiences different based on the sex of the child?

hoping for a !

With my dd, I had terrible morning sickness. With my ds's, it's been pretty mild. Of course dd was also my first, so I don't know if that was a factor as well.

i have 4 boys and am currently pregnant w/ my 1st daughter. (squeee! so weird saying that, lol) anyway, the one pregnancy that was WAAY different was #3 (a boy) and i thought for sure it was because i was having a girl. nope, it was just because i was older. (so i speculate--i was more sick and tired and there had been almost a 10 year gap between that pregnancy and the one previous.) this current girl pregnancy is no different than the boy pregnancy 2 years ago. ime, there's absolutely no telling gender due to how same or different your pregnancies are. (but you bet i was wondering and asking the same question w/ my last!)

My difference was in food cravings...craves sweets with the boys, craved greens and veggies with this pregnancy. Also, the foods that had worked for m/s in my first two (boy) pregnancies didn't really work with this baby, and my aversion to leftovers was extreme to say the least.

During my first trimester I thought everything was the same, but as I looked back on it at the beginning of the second trimester, I started to see that the pregnancies were really very different in how I felt. I started thinking girl.

With ds I was freezing all the time and ms was AWFUL, I was sick until about 22 weeks.

My two pregnancies could not have been more different - and both boys. With DS1, I had no m/s, craved sugar, was very tired, tons of aches and pains, high sex drive. With DS2, lots of nausea, craved protein and savory foods, still tired but really no aches and pains, and NO sex drive!

1st DD - Pretty darn ill the whole pregnancy, but mostly functioning.

2nd DD - Felt great, can't complain much.

1st DS - Sick as a dog the whole time, seriously almost died (more than once). To be fair, there was a different dad involved, so maybe the genes made a difference?

Pregnant again (with my dd's dad again) and feeling pretty good so far (knock on wood). So I don't think that gender makes to much of a difference in my case. My mom had four girls and never puked once during a pregnancy.

My symptoms varried each pgcy, but gender had nothing to do with it.

My pregnancies with DD and DS were SOOOO similar that I swore DS was a girl. I really didn't believe the u/s, I was just so sure! But, he's a 3 yo ball of little boy energy today! This time around we didn't find out, and honestly, I couldn't begin to compare this pregnancy, it's been totally different than the first two. Maybe it's puppies instead?

I can't answer with the choices given. My pregnancies have been different, but it doesn't seem to be related to the sex of the baby.

While each of my three pregnacies has been different, there are 2 things that have been radically different with my boy pregnancy than my girl ones. My skin is clear, and during the first two trimesters, I was FREEZING. The freezing thing had my DH pretty convinced that this was a boy!

hmmm, well not much really in the way of a difference of any symptoms or anything. I have 2 boys and 1 girl and carrying another girl..only thing I can say is different is that I am smaller in size with both girls than with the boys at term..not weight wise, I just LOOK smaller

I have one boy and one girl and my pregnancies were completely different. With DS I had no MS but I was really tired for my whole pregnancy and slept well for most of it. With DD I was really sick until 15 or 16 weeks and slept horribly. DS wasn't very active in the womb unless prodded, he seemed pretty comfy to be there. DD on the other hand was rocking and rolling non-stop. I'll be interested to see how future pregnancies play out.
