Also, mamas of more than one, did you get a feeling as to whether your previous ones were boys or girls? And, if so, were you right?
Thanks for taking my mind off of my morning (all day) sickness for a while
This time I'm thinking it's a girl, although that's probably wishful thinking. Don't get me wrong, I adore my boys! But this is probably our last baby and it would be nice to have more estrogen around the house
On the other hand, there's something really cute about having three boys... Busy, but cute!
That all said... based on when we did the deed to get this pregnancy and when I was going to ovulate... I think this baby is a girl. Mostly just because we did the deed to get DD WHEN I ovulated... this time it was a couple/few days before. So, the likelihood seems much greater for a girl since female sperm are more long-lived and generally stronger. Also, DH was on an aegis ship, which means his male sperms could be incapeable of making babies. I would be VERY sad if this was the case because I hope to have at least two boys (I've always just had that in my head). But we will find joy in any and all the children we may have, I'm certain!
I'm totally interested in others' feelings and ideas on this! Such a great topic!

Last time I was about 55% for girl, but really only because there hadn't been any baby girls in the family for a while. I think in my heart I knew he was a boy, though, and lo and behold!! (And I couldn't be happier!!)
So, despite the requests I think it may be another boy - I'm not sure why I think that, though.
I am going to find out with my u/s - anyone else?
Baby #1--I thought it was a boy from the very beginning. Doc did an ultrasound in his office (this was before u/s were very good and it was an older machine) and he told me that if he had to guess he would say it was a girl. I looked straight at him and told him he was dead wrong. In the end it was a boy!
Baby #2--I thought was a girl. I was wrong--definitely a boy.
Baby #3--I thought it was a girl. I was correct.
Baby #4--(miscarried). I had no clue, but testing determined that he was a boy.
Baby #5--I told my o/b that my dh was only capable of making boys because 3 out of 4 were boys. She did a scan in her office and told me that it was definitely a girl. She was correct. I really wanted a girl that pregnancy, but would have been happy either way.
Baby #6--miscarried too early to know gender.
Baby #7--whom I am pregnant with now. I think it's a boy. I keep having dreams of a little boy with dark hair. The things I want to eat all the time are very similar to those cravings I had with all my boys. So, I dunno.
I will have an u/s for two reasons: I am getting older (37) and want to be prepared if there's a possiblity of Down Syndrome. We are considering moving back to MA (partly b/c I can't find any decent care down here) and our house in MA is very tiny (3 bedrooms). I need to find out the sex so we know where in the world we will put all these kids!
So, there you have it. My predictions and their outcomes, so far :-)
i think this baby is a boy.
with my first two i definitely knew and was right, though i must admit that the first was also confirmed by u/s midway through.
i have no preference about the sex of this one, though my son is really really hoping for a little brother!
I thought my first was a boy and she turned out to be a girl. I thought the rest to be girls and I've since given birth to a gorgeous girl, a gorgeous boy and I miscarried a boy.
I'm hoping for a boy, it would make things so much easier bedroom wise.
I don't have a strong feeling about this one yet (and no revealing dreams) but my daughter has been calling various toys "baby sister." We'll see!
I had strong feelings regarding gender during my first and second pregnancies, and I was right both times. Third time I wasn't sure, and ended up with a girl.
I'm an unintentional weasel feeder and I suck at proofreading.
We haven't decided whether to find out the gender. I *think* we'll be having a mid-trimester u/s, and if so chances are we'll find out.
I really would like a boy this time. The kids would all like a little brother.
In some ways I think it's a boy...and in some I think it's a girl.
We will be doing the U/S at 20 weeks...and DH really wants to know. (I'd be happy to wait, but since he wants to know- I think we'll find out)

My friend told me that boys take more out of you than girls do, does anyone know anything about that to back that up, or have personal experience with that? I'm very interested... hummmm?
