I though maybe it would be fun to see what inklings we might have and how 'right on' they are .

Seeing as we have lots of appts. coming in the next few weeks for the 'big u/s'... well, you know the rest .

I thought boy at first, even had a boy dream where he was born in the caul, very cool dream, I even named him my top pick but it didn't fit him .
but in the last few weeks I've caught myself thinking of 'her' and had a girls dream several months before conc'v this Babe.
Right now.... I honestly am not sure.
But if I had to guess today, I'd say girl.
Anyone wanna play??

Me! Me! Me! I've been saying since the beginning of this pg that i thought we'd have a boy. For years, I wanted a girl first, since i our girl name so much, and it's so special to me. (and I wanted to get to use it before someone I knew stole it or something... how silly)

But, now, all I can picture is BOY everything! I like boy clothes, want boy diaper stash items, dream about boy nursery decorating ideas...

so, that's my guess. Of course, DH has to say girl, but I think it's just to be disagreeable since I'm such a B lately

The babymoon isn't over! Our long awaited A born 7/18/10, making us laugh and smile every day.

This baby is firmly a boy in my thoughts in every instance except when I think about having HER in the car or going to the sitter.

It's his crib, his clothes, carrying him around, but it's her carseat.

How bizarre is that?

I was absolutely sure this was a girl until a few weeks ago. Now I'm not absolutely sure, but I'm still thinking it's likely a girl.

I am thinking girl, but I feel like my intuition is muddled by the fact that I so desperately want it to be a girl! I have always been right about the gender..Guess we will see.

I have been thinking boy this whole pregnancy and have had 3 dreams about having a boy (including one with twin boys). Midwife says she keeps wanting to call it a "he". However when I am researching names I am always thinking of girl names for some reason. I would be happy with either but right now I predict:

BOY

Actual? We'll find out on the 29th or 30th.

ETA: DD told me tonight that she wants the baby to be a girl and its a "princess".

Fun game.

I am feeling boy in my case - partly because of timing of conception, partly because of being a sucker and believing old wives tales about less morning sickness = boy. Heh heh.
Oh - and I have this amazingly clear scan of the face taken at 12.5 weeks...and blow me away if the little critter doesn't just LOOK like a boy. (But I realise that's hilarious.)

Told my midwife I thought boy...and to my embarassment (and then later, weirdness, as I started thinking about sexism...) she said that a lot of first time mother's said that to her....or was it that they wanted a boy? Argh. Can't quite remember.

Guess: Boy
Actual: Finding out 29 March.

I really think it's a girl, but that could be that I sort of want a girl, but since the baby's heart rate is in the 150s I keep thinking it's a boy.... we will find out April 7th

I'm convinced it's two boys, DH thinks it's a boy and a girl (statistically the most probable). We don't find out for another 6 wks, so I'll be curious to see.

Not sure if I'm finding out. I was very eager to find out at the start, now I'm worried I'll be too disappointed. Anyhow, if I do, I'll say boy though I'd really like a girl.

I (and everyone else) totally thought girl (we have two boys) but at the 12w u/s the tech thought it was a boy. Last week I saw other 12 u/s pics and the difference between boys and girls was so hard to see that now I'm wondering I might end up with a girl after all. I'm assuming it's a boy, but I'll be curious to see what the 19 week u/s says. My appt is 3/22.

I knew from early on that DS was a boy and from the moment I saw the positive test with this baby, I've been saying "she".

The only baby dream I've had was that I was giving birth to triplets...2 boys and a girl Given the size of my uterus, I'm thinking that's a big fat NO

Fun

I would love to have another girl but.... I think we are going to have a boy. We will find out in a couple of weeks.

ETA: Looks like we won't be able to get in for our ultrasound until April now... hopefully by the 10th.

So I'll play even though I am 99% sure it's a boy b/c of an U/S at work. I still am holding out hope that it is a girl. Timing we should have a girl. I am not really a believer in this anymore. There is really no way it's a girl if you go by the pic but it was a really quick u/s and I was 17 wks. My official u/s is 3/16 so we'll confirm it then. The weirdest part is that I had a dream about having an U/S and saw clearly it was a boy. The pic I have is the one from my dream.

I have been trying to tell myself that I truly think it is a boy. I don't know if that is a defense mechanism or if I truly knew. I am thrilled either way but wanted to have the experience of having a little girl. Next lifetime.

I think it's a girl. I find out March 8. I know it might just be wishful thinking, but I was hoping for a girl with my second and knew he was a boy all along, even though we didn't have an U/S.

As soon as I concieved my first baby I was positive, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that it was a girl. And she is! The second this baby was concieved I was positive that he was a boy. And the u/s verified this as well. I'm usually not intuitive at all, but baby gender seems to be the exception!

I know we have one boy (we could tell at the first tri u/s), but the second twin... not sure. If they had told me I was carrying two girls, I would have fallen off the table. I *knew* there was at least one boy. I did dream about b/g twins named Philipe and Plumeria (ha!!), so I guess I'll go with a guess of GIRL for twin B. Finding out 3/24.

I keep thinking this one is a boy, but I'd really be fine with either. We won't find out until the end of this month.
