Was your intuition accurate?

Mom of a 7 yr old, 4 yr old, and 1 yr old. Wow. How did that happen?

With my first I knew it was a boy from about 4 months on. With this pregnancy I haven't gotten strong vibes either way and it's going to be a surprise so we'll have to wait and see.

with my dd I knew instantly.. I never even thought of a boy name.
THIS time I'm pretty sure it's a boy.. but I have to admit there is a tiny bit of doubt.. but I'm having an ultrasound on Tuesday, so hopefully we'll see for sure!!

I was wrong (I thought boy) and so was nearly everyone else--family, friends, etc. The only one who was right was DH!! He and I both had dreams about it, and in my dreams it was definitely a boy--but I think honestly I was just trying to emotionally prepare myself in case it WAS a boy, since I'd always wanted a girl and didn't want to have a moment of disappointment if/when we learned it was a boy. But I did such a good job preparing myself, that now I'd LOVE to have a boy someday!! DH really didn't have a preference either way, so I think his dreams were more "pure".

I have been right with all 4. My dh is scratching his head wondering how I do it. lol.
I'm always wrong with all my friends though. It must be some kind of inner communication.

I was right with this one .

I thought she was a girl from the minute I found out I was pregnant.

My first pregnancy, that ended around 10 weeks, I knew it was a boy, but we'll never really know.

My intuition was right on for both. From the first trimester I felt like I was having what I had.

This sounds like me. This pregnancy I have said since the beginning I 'feel' girl but we aren't finding out until birth. My first pregnancy was a missed m/c and at 10 weeks there was no hb. I 'felt 'boy for that baby but I will never get to know.

With the first, I just *knew* around the end of the first trimester. I also had lots of dreams about it being a girl, which she was! This time, I have a VERY strong feeling that it's a boy since around the same time as last time. I just had a dream that the midwife told me it was a girl so that's what we told everyone and then I actually had the baby and it turned out to be a boy instead so I was all happy in my dream!

right with #1, and I was so so certain the #2 would be a boy, but she's not.

I told the man that we were having a boy two weeks before the ultrasound. I was right.

I was pretty convinced but the ultrasound last month told me differently tomorrow I have another ultrasound and something in my mind is still saying "maybe they didn't look properly last time" : . Although I'm happy either way!!
