With DD#1, I was certain it was a girl, convinced myself that just cause that's what I want I wont get it, but had this moment where we were literally walking into the u/s room where I looked to DH, went pale white and proclaimed 'I'm wrong, it's a girl!' low and behold it's a DD.
With DD#2, I knew. The minute I thought I was pregnant, I knew. I just knew. Don't know how, I just always 'knew'... oddly enough, I called it before the u/s tech did, I saw it on the screen first.
Now with this one... I KNOW it's a boy. don't ask me how, I do, I just KNOW.
Besides the fact that this pregnancy has been entirely different so far. The girls pregnancy were both the same, same symptoms, same nausea, same food cravings, etc. Now this one is entire different in EVERY way.
Does any other experienced mom just 'know' and have always or almost always been right. What is it? Is it a gut feeling? is it pregnancy symptoms? is it hormonal? Is it luck (it's a 50/50 chance, right)? How is it we 'just know'?
Did you know or do you this time?

I was so very very sure this pregnancy was another boy... from the very first bfp, just KNEW this was a boy (I already have one of each) but nope... 3 ultrasounds have said girl, once a - Well... I'm pretty sure thats girl... and twice - Oh yes, I have no doubt that's a girl!
With DD2, I had myself convinced it was a boy. DH insisted it was a girl.
With this one, I just don't know. I really want a boy, so I have myself convinced it's another girl (which, just for the record, of course I would be thrilled with - in lots of ways it would make life easier and less expensive ). DH is not telling me what he thinks. This one was unplanned and I'm not entirely sure of my O date (I've got it within a three day window). So based on the timing it's most likely a girl, but you know how that goes. FWIW, I feel like this pregnancy is totally different, but so is my health compared to the first two.
I think with two girls I'm going to imagine a girl unless/until I get an ultrasound with a super clear boy shot telling me otherwise.
DD, on the otherhand - DBF really REALLY wanted a boy.. and I was 100% positive we were having a girl but I lied and said I was sure it was a girl because I didn't want him to react badly. Of course, when the U/s tech said girl he got really upset and left the room. (Caused problems later for us, in fact the midwife said the reason I didn't have contractions after my water broke was because I was trying to keep her in to protect her - but he's madly in love with her now)
This time, it's a boy. I'm having all the same stuff I had with DS, the super smeller, weird hairs growing out of my face, minimal M/s, and I've lost my sweet tooth.
That SAID, I've told DBF i think it's another girl - just to prepare him, I'd rather have him resigned to a girl and surprised by a boy than expecting a boy and disappointed in a girl. (Another girl would be awesome because we've got a ton of girl stuff and NO boy stuff...)
This pregnancy is really different than the first, so I'm curious if this one will be a boy (DP really hopes so!). But right away, I said that I thought it would be another girl. We'll see....
I blog about our life with food allergies and eosinophilic disorders.
Dd2 I knew was a girl in the 2nd tri and I was right (surprise)
This time I got nothing yet. Dh would really like a boy, so I think that may color my "feelings" you know?
All my pregnancies have been pretty different, so I'm not sure if that is a good barometer for me.
Banana, doula wife to Papa Banana and mother to Banana One, Banana Two, Banana Three, Banana Four...
with this one i'm really not feeling an inclination anyway
My DD is the only girl born to my DH's side of the family, up til atleast my kids great-grandpa. (beyond that we are unsure, GPA doesnt remember any sisters, but that doesnt mean there weren't any) So 1 out of 16 babies at least
Aron Mama to 6 homeschoolers -- 12, 10, 8, 5, 3, baby
Michelle, Happily married to first crush 4/2005, SAHM to DD 7/2006 , DS 8/2008 , 4/2010, DD 3/2011, expecting DS 8/2013.
Mama to A (12), Z (11), H (9), C (5), A (3) and 4 angels.
I guess, I really have no tune in to my mommy intuition about that!
It takes me awhile to get a feeling. With DD everyone around me said I'd have a boy since I wanted a girl (I didn't really like that logic) but I knew she was a girl (I didn't find out beforehand).
With my two surrogacies I knew they were both boys by about 15 weeks.
We aren't going to do any US unless there is a reason and even if I don't think we will find out. I remember it being a good motivator in labor!
