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.
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 found it depended on healthy i was.The better shape i was in the less i had.
#1 not really any morning sickness and boy
#2 quite a bit of morning sickness but i donno what it is
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'm an unintentional weasel feeder and I suck at proofreading.
In my circle, it seems to vary by mama... if you got sick with your boy, you didn't with your girl, or vice versa... but yes, I've also noticed this phenonema... weird, huh? Its amazing the things our bodies can tell us!
to all the pukey mamas... that's no fun!
As for me, I had not a twinge of nausea the whole time I was pregnant the first time, and I had a boy. This time, I haven't actually yakked but I have had a few days where I felt like I wanted to. Nothing too bad but definitely more than the first. I don't know what we're having yet but I have been thinking it's a girl, because of this.
one friend had morning sickness with first (girl) and much, much worse with her second, which was a boy.
I believe it has nothing to do with the gender of the baby.
I used to believe that having a lot of morning sickness was = having a girl. I had bad morning sickness with DD and none with both of mine DS.
This time however, it was AWFUL and I am still having morning sickness sometimes at 7 months. And I am having a BOY!!

3rd baby I was sick as a dog from 5-18 weeks. He's a boy.
No correlation whatsoever in my case.
