I've been thinking girl but it's not a strong feeling like I had with DS when I just knew. I think it's more because this pregnancy has been completely different from my first, so I find myself thinking it must be a different gender too. Recently I had a little bit of a boy feeling too, so I guess my answer is...no, I don't have a really distinct gender feeling this time...at least not yet!
(20 wk ultrasound is on Tuesday so maybe I'll get some kind of a feeling then)

Not sure, really. With DS, I knew for sure that he was a girl. No doubt in my mind.

This time, I'm feeling faintly "boy" but when dream about baby it's "girl." So, I'll go with boy.

I am completely clueless this time around. With DS I knew it was a boy-I had very strong feelings, would dream about boys, and I would see the word boy everywhere. I haven't gotten that yet this time around. DH also had strong feelings last time and doesn't have any ideas yet.

I have no idea. I want a boy so I suspect any "feelings" I have. Dh thinks we're having a girl. All my kids think boy. My oldest called it right with our last child

I'm new in the group, but I hope you don't mind me chiming in. I personally don't feel very strongly one way or the other, but my husband and son are convinced it's a boy, and they were spot on with the birth month and sex of our daughter, and the birth month of this one (all before conception) so I lean towards giving them weight.

I dunno yet. With my DS I had several boy dreams...but not until later in the pregnancy. I'm still waiting for some feeling.

Although, I will admit it's easier to come up with girl names (while last time, it was easier with boy names) but, that might just be that I feel like I've already used the "best" boy name....

I'd like to think girl. Higher heartrate and I have more fondness for the name we've picked. My husband is thinking girl too. My son says boy.

I wonder if my thoughts will change after seeing baby on u/s tomorrow.

My intuition is terrible. I had no clue with my first 2.

Our rainbow baby, Anna Beatrice was born April 11/2010 after 4 m/c. She joins 4 brothers and sisters.

I keep having girl dreams too - but I also had girl dreams with DS. With DS, I actually dreamed of a little girl - she must have been about 3 or 4. There was no way she could have been our child! lol...She had long black hair and blue eyes and a face full of freckles. She was always in the most sweet blue cotton dress with white trimmings. He was our first and quite a surprise at that so I didn't really know what I wanted. I think we both kinda thought 'girl' - but tbh, I am glad I had a boy first.

With this one - so far I have had about 5 actual birthing dreams where it comes out a little girl (and looking very much like one of us). But for some reason this tells me its a boy lmao. I am not fussed either way - but as it will be our last, I kinda want a girl so I have the variety of being a parent to both sexes. But I just want a healthy baby - thats all thats important to me.

DS heart rate was in the 160s. I have been fainty hearing something getting less faint for the past few weeks (no doppler here - pinnard)...at first I thought it was my own heart rate but as it is getting stronger I am not too sure. I calculated 168 (which was very similar to DSs)...so who knows!

Well my son just told me it's a girl so we'll see. All the kids he knows are boys so he's never really been around a girl so I'm not sure if that is influencing him. I told him we'll see in a few months.

DS has always said this one was a boy lol
My other pregnancies he has also guessed either boy or girl - but no way to ever know.

Now he's waffling. This baby apparently changes gender every five minutes. Gotta love toddlers!

Hmmmm, I am going to guess Girl....Mostly because with my DS I had strong feelings and vivid dreams of my little boy, and with DD I had no baby dreams, and no strong feelings towards boy or girl. This time around everyone in my family (the IL's, my parents, DH, DS) think that I am having a boy, and I guess I am not feeling like it is this time around....and I am having no baby dreams again (just like with dd). I would be thrilled to have a boy....or a girl.

I still have absolutely NO idea, my intuition must be broken. Some days Im positive it's a boy, other days I think of the baby as a girl I have NO idea.

DH thinks it's a girl based on what he saw on the u/s the other day. He thought that our second child was a girl and he was wrong then so I'm not placing any bets on his guess. I don't know what my guess is b/c I'm usually wrong anyway.

I recently changed my username, but I still say "Hello" to all those who know me in real life! Hi P, S, T and K!

My feelings this time are tending towards girl, but they are not nearly as strong as they were for DS, who I was sure was a boy. I got a pretty strong "girl feeling" when I saw the US, and the heartrate is also higher, but only time will tell.

I've been feeling like this one is a boy.. but I don't know how much of that is wishful thinking. I'd be happy either way, but a boy would get the in-laws off my back!

We were at a Chinese restaurant yesterday (one we go to all the time, where everyone knows us), and two of the waiters were asking me what I was having. I told them I didn't know, and they asked me to stand up so they could see how I was carrying. I stood up, and they both pointed to my belly and shouted "BOY!" at the same exact time.

I honestly have no idea. Maybe 55% boy and 45% girl so I'll guess boy for me.
