Do you have any predictions? Instincts? Did your pee turn pink with draino? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> What do you guess you're having?<br><br>
Dh says girl, all the way. So does my mom. But MIL is saying it's most definitely a boy, because she had a dream. (she's very much into dreams and feelings)<br><br>
I would lean towards boy, but that's because this pg is quite a bit different than with dd.

I'm guessing, based on the old wives' tale, that it's a boy and a girl. Honestly, before I knew it was twins I thought it was a girl though, so I don't know what that means. Maybe they're both girls?

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> Well you know that I think we are having a girl. But that is because this preg is much more like I was with Deja than Landon... DH thinks that we are having a boy, but that is only because that is what he "wants"...<br><br>
No family guesses yet, although I think MIL thinks boy too (but she won't say)

Carrie, you know I'll get the girl and you'll get the boy. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> Can we trade?

Well, I had a dream it was a girl, but in the dream she was also terribly premature. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> So I can't really hope for that to come true or anything.

I sure hope so, Jillybeans. The first one definitely looked like she coulda cooked a bit longer <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> :<br><br><a href="http://i161.photobucket.com/albums/t210/binkermum/28.jpg" target="_blank">Tiny DD</a><br><br>
She was 3 weeks early but had IUGR. She was just under 5 lbs when we brought her home. Perfectly healthy, but skinny!

Oh Chrysta what a sweet little thing!<br><br>
I'm thinking girl, very strongly, she even named herself before I knew I was pregnant. I said to DH one day (totally thinking we missed it that month and I wasn't preggo), "What do you think of Samantha for a girl?" Surprisingly he loved it (he's picky with names, but I guess we all are)<br><br>
If it's a boy I have no explanation for this story.<br><br>
I'd be just as happy with a boy. I'd just have to shift gears. Still, it's fun to think I might be able to really predict it. I've predicted my friends' babies with 100% accuracy. Even down to a limb defect in one of them (minor thank god). But I'm by no means psychic...just in tune with other people's babies. (Or a lucky guesser.)

Ya beat me to it Jillybeans!!! I thought about starting this thread earlier today.<br><br>
I'm predicting boy. I'm...eager for twins to be ruled out. But I've had bad morning sickness with both boys and girls, however the rate at which I'm downing ham, chicken, veggiedogs, eggs, etc leads me to say boy. I told dh we'd know by my birthday (end of August) because I carry my boys like they're about to fall out, and my girls high. Not all women do, but I do. Who knows, maybe we'll be able to tell at the 20 week u/s since we're pretty good at that now. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> But we won't ask.

I think it's a boy! I thought so the moment I thought I was pregnant. I just guessed correctly about my friend's daughter so hopefully I'll have the same instict about my own <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I don't always get feelings like this, but often when I do I'm right. I'd love to have a girl, though, so either way I'll be happy (of course!).

I guess girl but would be happy either way. There are pros and cons to both and really I want him/her to be healthy and happy mostly.<br><br>
I had a dream before finding out I was preg that I had my son and a baby girl with me. Also my acupuncturist said by my pulses she would predict girl.<br><br>

I just have no idea. I have NO pregnancy dreams! Kind of freaks me out. I think it's a mental block because I refuse to speculate usually for fear I will get my hopes up. I literally want HEALTHY and don't care about the sex. I would so love a girl, but a boy would definitely be easier for us at this point.<br><br>
I should visit my acupuncturist for this morning sickness and see if she does pulse predictions. Then again, I swore I didn't want any of that and want a surprise!

When I was pregnant last time, I had a 10-week ultrasound. As soon as I saw the baby on the screen I KNEW he was a boy. DH kept saying "he doesn't even have developed parts yet!" well, of course not- but I just KNEW. There was not a doubt in my mind that this was a boy. This time, before my first ultrasound, I thought it would be a girl, but now I am not sure. I am really up in the air.<br><br>
The gender predictor says girl for this time and boy for last time. I dunno..... as long as s/he is healthy I will be happy.

I was sure it would be a boy before we ttc'd, but now I'm thinking girl. I don't know why. I think in my head it's a boy, but in my heart I feel like it's a girl. Ok, now I sound <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/nut.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="nut">!

OMG, that has to be one of the cutest baby pictures I've ever seen!!! So litle, but full of personality!<br><br>
Anyway, I'm thinking girl. We dtd before O, which makes girl more likely (though no guarantee, I know!), and I dunno, just feels like a girl. Dh keeps calling it "he" though. Says it's a family tradition-- his dad only has a brother, his mom only has sisters, he's only got a brother, and his brother has only girls. Apparently, they stick to 1 sex in his family, and since we already have a boy together.... (dd isn't biologically his). We're going to try to find out at the 20 u/s, so we shall see. 10wks to go! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Thank you to everyone who said the picture was cute. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/loveeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Loveeyes">: I kind of never let a chance go by to NOT show off that picture. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"><br><br>
When I was pregnant with DD, I thought I wanted a boy, and she was a girl. Now, of course, I can't imagine her any different. I'm kind of afraid to profess any kind of preference in case I'm wrong again! Although like the last time, I doubt it will matter to me in the end.

We were "aiming" for a boy thinking we DTD right at/after O... but then I kept getting this GIRL vibe, rechecked my charts and <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/jaw2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="jaw2">: I was THREE DAYS OFF!!!!! I couldn't bring myself to tell DH for a while because he has already picked out a boys name (one I'm indifferent to) but I am already in love with my girls' name.<br><br>
I was not even anywhere near this sick with Titus and craved totally different foods.
