Hey, all! I stole this one from the February DDC, but it looks like a lot of fun! I know there is another thread out there talking about gender predictions, but I was hoping we could keep track of our guesses, and the actual genders! How do you make a thread sticky?

Anyway, I have felt from the begining that Robin is a boy. I woke up one morning a few days before a home pregnancy test confirmed it (way before I even missed a period), and my first thought was "Benjamin is here." Ben is the name DH really wants for a boy. This would have been about 7 days after we conceived. So, I know the chances are 50/50, but somehow I just feel "boy" here. Which is kinda too bad, cause Mom and Dad really want a grand-daughter!

UPDATE (10/18): Ok, so after my whole long story about boy vibes, I'm going to change my prediction! Ever since I started feeling movement regularly, I can't stop visualizing Robin as a girl. Also, I had a dream about her. I've been feeling it more and more strongly, but hesitated to change my guess cause it seems silly. But now ananas at the I'm Pregnant thread says she sees girl, too, so that clinches it in my mind. Girl. Done. No more waffling. We'll find out next week!

I'll start filling in this thread with predictions from the previous thread. Some of you mentioned multiple guesses in your original posts, so I tried to go with what you said your intuition was. Let me know if you've changed your mind!

Great idea! You might change mine to ? instead of girl...I originally thought girl, but now I'm not so convinced. This pregnancy is SO different. At our 13wk ER ultrasound the tech said that she didn't "see anything obvious" but I'm not calling that a girl yet! Only 3.5 weeks until we know.

I'll put my official guess in as girl only because I am sure my body rids itself of male sperm the second they enter. My very first hunch was boy though.

My gut is telling me this one is a girl. I was right with all my others w/o ever having an us, so we will see in a few weeks. We have to have another us at 20 weeks and if it is obvious then I am okay with finding out.

So I have no idea, but want to play along! At first I thought boy for sure, but now I'm thinking girl. So my guess for now is girl. We also will not find out until March!

Put me down for a girl guess, though I did have a dream last night in which we had an ultrasound and saw definite boy parts!

Wow, Kate, thanks for all the work putting that together!

First I thought boy, now I've been thinking girl (HB was 168 at my u/s). But...um...maybe it's a boy. Ask me again next week.
We aren't finding out til the baby's here, either.

As much as I want another little boy, I'm going to guess a girl. This is just based on how I think we conceived, which was probably several days to a week before I ovulated. I never seem to have any actual inklings or feelings one way or another

See I am leaning more towards girl. I swear every sign is pointing that way so if by chance this baby is a boy I would be very surprised Mind you I did think I saw something that looked "male" at my first U/S.

I am guessing a girl. My two boys kept tell me that they thought it was a boy but than my oldest woke up from his nap yesterday and came and touched my belly and said "Mom I think it is a girl in there". Maybe he had a dream about a girl. We will have an ultra sound soon. Can't wait!

This is fun! Can you add me too. My guess is that it will be a girl.
However, DH and I have thought for years that our first child would be a girl, so my intuition may be mixed with a bit of wishful thinking.
Hopefully we'll know in the next month or two!

Thanks

Soon after I found out I was indeed pregnant I dreamt that I was handed a newborn baby boy. Now, I am not so sure- I feel some pretty heavy girl vibes. When I was pregnant with my son I grew out, I looked like I had a basketball under my shirt. So far this time I have grown wider and wider. Also my first reaction to seeing the babe during the ultrasound was "looks like a girl"- for no concrete reason. Mark me as predicting a girl.

Cool idea. Thanks for putting this together. My prediction has changed. I'm really getting girl vibes, my dd still insists it's a boy. Time will tell.

I've never really had a feeling either way with any of my previous pregnancies. But I feel like this one is a boy. My symptoms are identical to the symptoms I had when pregnant with my son.

When we were trying to get pregnant I was getting a little frustrated so I meditated on "Will I have another baby". Well I had a vision of a little boy above me and was told that the opportunity was being offered to me...I just needed to accept it. Well I reached up and pulled the boy down to my breast and nursed him. I felt SO utterly fulfilling. I wept. 2 weeks later I found out I was pregnant. So...I am convinced this is a little boy. I even bought some cloth wipes the other day on-line. I had to choose btwn boy and girl patterns. I picked the boy pattern for the new baby and thought my 21 mos DD would just have to deal with the boy print. About an hour later I thought...wow I just bought boy print automatically without second guessing my self!
