I'm such a loser! Have any of you had ananas guess your baby's gender? Well I did and now I'm feeling like I just found out by ultrasound or something! I thought it would be fun but I've always been big on the surprise aspect. Now she's guessed four correctly and I'm Like I ruined my surprise! I'm also starting to think maybe I should just find out by ultrasound in a couple of months....ya know, b/c I know already! What a geek I am...
Anyone else?

Oh and FIVE weeks today!!

At one point dh's aunt did the string test on him. He knows the results. He will not tell me. He said that he didn't want to know if ours were different. He does not know that I had ananas guess the gender of this baby. I'm not sure if I should even tell him.

You know, it really is just a 50/50 chance she could be right. I understand that she did guess right for all your other dc, BUT it is 50/50. You really shouldn't get sad about it. I personally would not get an u/s just to find out the sex. Now THAT would be a FOR SURE to me and not just somebody elses intuition guessing.

When I asked her to guess for me, I thought it was just all in fun. Maybe she's right, but maybe not y/k?

I am excited that she said this one was a girl and within 2 years I would have a little boy, too =) She said that she saw a 3 year old girl with sandy brown hair playing with a little baby boy that had sandy brown hair, too. Those are my kids! It's like seeing a peak into the future. How neat! I won't put too much weight on it though. Like I said, it's just for fun.

ananas is a member who is doing a post in the "I'm Pregnant" forum on guessing the gender of your baby. You can go there and give her your due date and a picture if you want and she will guess the gender.

i*wish, I wouldn't worry. To be perfectly honest, she could still be wrong. The other thread that was up was the same way. At first it looked like she had incredible accuracy but as more and more mamas posted she ended up about 50/50. No matter what anybody says, there's no way to truly predict your baby's gender, unless the person's psychic. And she's just doing the string test. I would take it with a grain of salt, honestly.

She told me boy - she better be wrong!! No seriously, I wouldn't be an iota sad at all, just seriously seriously outnumbered. Like unfairly so.

My guess is on a little girl in there for us. We'll see.

I haven't had ananas do a reading for me, but I have a friend on another board that does readings, and she's been saying girl for me for a long time now. I think she's probably right. I think I'll go find that thread.

ETA: I asked her, and she said girl. She also said that my most recent loss was a boy, which is what my friend thought also.
