i really feel like this one is a girl and when i am laying down at night with my husband i keep picturing a little girl with chubby cheeks and dark hair at different stages (3yrs and 12 months so far)..also i have been having dreams for months about having a baby and its always a girl.<br>
i was just wondering if anyone else had feelings, dreams or "saw" thier baby before it was born..

I did! With all 4. With ds I'd have nightmares often about a baby girl. Something would go wrong, Sids, accidental drowning, but if I dreamt of a boy, everything was fine. And he was a boy <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">. With #2, we thought it was a girl, never had U/S and sure enough our instincts were right. With the 3rd, again our instinct said girl. We had to go for an U/S so I asked, their opinion agreed with our instinct. And again with this one, though we won't know "for sure" until baby is born we've felt this is a girl. Due to m/c I had an u/s this time and the tech's opinion was a girl as well. So we'll see.... we might be 4 for 4 <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">

I was dead wrong about my dd's gender. I dreamed boys, I had a boy feeling and was really surprised when she turned out to be a girl. I didn't have a preferance for one or the other but just felt boy. Well she IS very spirited and will probably be a tomboy.<br><br>

With ds, I knew he was a boy. I had boy dreams, and I just knew. With this baby, a girl, I had no idea, but my husband and my parents knew!

With my first pregnancy, I knew it was a boy before we ever found out. I just knew from the first moment. My husband thought it was a girl though. When we went for the U/S and saw a penis, he thought I was cool for knowing. This time, I wasn't able to tell right away, but for the past month, I've known it's a boy. Again, my husband thinks it's a girl. I'm thinking he should just trust me and not get an U/S. But, alas, we will take a peek in October to find out the sex. I'm 100% sure it's a boy. We'll see if the U/S confirms what I know to be true!

I KNEW I was having a girl with Dd right from the start. We only had a girl name picked out, and I was so adamant about it that everyone made fun of me and said sarcastic things like, oh won't you be shocked when its a boy. Well, I was right. And do you know what everyone said to me then? Well, you had a 50/50 chance at guessing right.<br>
I also had very vivd dreams about Dd, quite acurate. Like lots of dark hair as an infant but blond curls as a toddler (just how things worked out too).<br>
This time I wasn't very sure at first, then I had two boy dreams and Dh had a boy dream too. So we'll see.

I "knew," but it was wrong. I got a u/s and said I didn't want to be told the gender, and I thought the face looked like a boy's face. So I just figured we would have a boy, but dh said he thought it was a girl and always referred to the fetus as "she." He was right! Next time I'll just ask him.

I just knew w/ my ds... never had any dreams, not confirmed by u/s but I knew. This time I keep on having girl dreams... so maybe this one is a girl. Guess I'll just have to wait and find out!

Every single dream I had w/dd was that she was a girl. However, I assumed she would be a boy and I think didn't want to get my hopes up (Dh came from a "boy-heavy" family)<br><br>
Next babe, I thought I'll just listen to my dreams. I had mixed ones that time, but when I tried to discern, I felt like the ones that were specifically about this baby, he was a boy. And during my blessingway, I felt really strongly that he was a boy.<br><br>
This time, I have had three dreams, all boy. So I am definitely thinking boy this time!! And for once, he even has a name ahead of time. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

We "Shettles-ed" for a boy, and I was 99.9% convinced it was a boy from the beginning.<br><br>
My m/w's OB does all of the 20-wk u/s, and when he said "it's a boy" I asked him to double-check (I've heard the stories of the cord in the way, etc.) and he zoomed in on the genitalia and said, "Ma'am, <i>that's</i> a penis." DH & I both laughed, it was so funny how he didn't get offended or anything, just showed us again.

Ohhhh, yeah. Without question, I knew both boys were indeed boys. It was just a feeling, a connection to them, a certain something. With ds#1, I told some people sometimes that I thought he was a boy, but I was much more confident in my feeling about ds#2 that he was a boy. I even went so far as to talk to #2 in the womb and call him by his name-Ian. Poor, kiddo-just imagine if I had been wrong!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="EEK!"> :LOL This one, I'm already thinking it is a girl, and heck, I do have a fifty fifty shot at being right, haha. Only time will tell b/c we never find out until they're out to show us what they've got! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
FWIW, I'm actually pretty good at guessing the gender of other ppl's kids, but it is usually those who are somehow close to me. One mama, for ex/is a net buddy of mine and when she announced she was having another baby, I congratulated her on having another little girl without realizing what I was typing. Sure enough, she had another little girl.

OH I knew with all my kids, with this little girlie, I wasn't going to find out, but EVERYONE was telling me it was going to be a boy, I didn't want to be so convinced it was a girl and be mistaken, so I found out.... and everyone was surprised!

Yes, I did. I kept it to myself because I did not want to look too silly, but I did very much know that Emily was a She and Paul was a He.

With my dd I had two dreams, one boy then one girl! How confusing! No U/S to confirm. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I had a pretty 'girly' feeling though, or maybe it was just because my mother in-law had such a 'boy' feeling that I just HAD to prove her wrong and I did! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
In both of my dreams, I took the baby out (it was fully grown with teeth and hair ) dressed it, took some pictures, then put it back inside to grow more! The wierd part is that she was really born 5 weeks early too! I'll have to watch out for those dreams next time! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/sticky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="sticky">

I was sure #1 was a girl as soon as I knew she was coming. The ultrasound confirmed. This time I am feeling girl again. Maybe I just can't imagine having a boy... I am going to try not to find out beforehand this time.
