Hmm, truthfully I have no idea, but I voted "leaning a teensy bit towards boy" just because all of my dreams have involved baby boys. I think this has more to do with the fact that both my husband and I are slightly more freaked out by the idea of having a boy than a girl because we both have sisters and no brothers, so that's what we're used to. And we can come up with boatloads of girl names we like, but not as many boy names.

I'm a terrible psychic, but I think I'm having a boy. (I picked "leaning towards", but I feel somewhere in between that and "definitely.") I just have a feeling - a lot like how I knew I was pregnant before I tested. We'll see.

I'm having an ultrasound tomorrow - I'm 12 weeks, and I opted to do the nuchal fold screening test. Apparently the ultrasound they use for that is high resolution, and sometimes they can see the little parts. DH and I talked it over, and if they can tell us the gender tomorrow, we want to know!

So exciting! :

Boy.

DH says twins. But he said twins with DS, even after we knew it was just one. I think it's his way of being avoidant.

No idea yet. I am still feeling ambivalent about finding out during pregnancy, so that adds in to my sense of "I don't know". I am waiting for DH's intuition to kick in, because he was the only one who was right last time.

Probably a boy. But, maybe that's cause I already have one, so it's what I know.

This pregnancy is a bit harder on me than my DS's was, so Old wives tale would say girl, but I dunno. It's early still. I was pretty sure DS was a boy, from all the dreams I was having. I haven't had any gender dreams yet. Once I start having those, I may have more of an opinion.

My MIL is sure it's another boy, and she thinks her daughter is pregnant with a girl (she'll be getting a scan in about three weeks or so, so she'll know a LOT sooner than me....since I won't know until birth)

With DD, I wanted a girl so badly that I almost lost it (sobbing) in the US when the tech said, "Oh, the baby has it's hands on its genitals-- trouble if you have it's a boy, right, ha ha?" Ugh. I still can't believe she said that. THANK GOODNESS she was a girl, because finding out in that way (hee hee! masturbation joke!) that I was having a boy would have just put me under.

I would really prefer a girl this time, too, but my desire now that I am pregnant is a LOT less strong. (with DD, it certainly never weakened, only increased). So now I am wondering if part of that "desire" was actually intuition that she was a girl (so everything else seemed wrong), and if the fact that my preference is weakening now means boy (?)

Also, this pregnancy has been a lot less pleasant With DD, I felt this overwhelming sense of calm almost the entire pregnancy. I don't know if it was extra estrogen, or what, but I was SO CALM that I even stopped biting my nails-- a habit I have had and hated my whole life. This time.... not so much.

I hope this is true! I guess my problem is that they become pretty "penisey" once they turn into teenagers, which is the stage I would absolutely dread.

I picked 'definitely boy' but maybe I wouldnt go that far, but its more than a leaning or inkling

Last pregnancy we found out at the 20 U/S but before that I had been utterly convinced that my mumma intuition was correct and that I was having a girl. We had the scan and I was nodding away thinking 'yep, ok, tell me its a girl' and the tech said 'oooh VERY clearly a little boy in there' and pointed to a very clear little penis I almost fainted. What rubbish intuition I have. So im kinda reluctant to trust it again we're not finding out with this one, so, could be fun

I want a girl so badly that I'll only refer to this baby as a girl, and I've only looked at girl names. Which probably means it's a boy! We're having an atatomy scan at 20 weeks, so I'll probably know by Christmas, if babe cooperates.

I'm not sure if it's my intuition or my just wanting a girl very badly. So, I picked definitely girl as that's what I'm "feeling" ... but, we'll see.

well lets see here; acne that won't go away: girl (but could be stress)
carrying high: boy (could be my imagination)
lost weight??!!! (never happened): no clue
intuition on poss. conception night: boy
m/s and gaggy/sensative to foods (also not usual): no clue
hair loss still at same rate (shoulda been growing by now!): slightly girl?
not to tired/kinda actually rested: slightly boy?

I'm wanting girl, i'm hoping girl, I really need this baby to be a girl. However I'm afraid it's a boy. Guess we'll see in 6 weeks.

When I was pregnant w/ DD, my skin and hair were both better than normal. I wish I had a better understanding of how the pregnancy hormones work, but I think it has more to do with starting levels and level changes... so for me personally, I think going from breastfeeding to pregnant may account more for the "symptoms" than the gender of the baby... (?)

Well, this pregnancy is entirely different from the last two, so... that means my baby is... transgender...

I don't think cravings/skin/sickness mean anything.

I just can't wait for the ultrasound.

I said definitley girl. All my dreams have been about having a girl, and I just feel strongly we're having a daughter and so does DH. However, with Hunter I thought he was a girl too and he's a boy. I guess we will see when the time comes.
