I have 3 boys and I knew they were boys...all ovulation day babies. This time around it appears that this deed was done 4 days prior and I have NO clue what this baby is!!<br>
All of my boy pregnancies have been exactly the same. Same look, felt the same way...the same exactly pretty much.<br><br>
So tell me about your experience!!

Right now I have 2 boys and 2 girls. Each pregnancy was different and I seemed to carry them all the same.

My body looked different in that with dd I only gained 4pds so by the end of the pg I was very skinny. With ds I gained 20p so I was a lot heavier looking.<br><br>
I felt the same both pg's basically.

I carried them differently and my dd's preg. was much easier. With ds I threw up every.single.day for 9 months. Plus my leg hair stopped growing around 8 months <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy"> He was a surprise baby, but I kinda knew he would be a boy.

I have had three boys and each pregnancy was very, very different. One and two were both O day babies. Number 3 was a surprise who I believe was 3+ days before O. No idea for this baby at all. I did carry all of my boys very high and I am already huge right under my boobs.

I carried and felt differently and have one of each. With dd I didn't have nearly as much morning sickness, and I was kinda chubbed out all over, swollen everywhere. With ds I was very sick and my stomach stuck straight out huge, but not a lot anywhere else. Lost it fast that time too!<br>
I don't want to speculate on what this one is yet, lol.

Maybe maybe I had a bit more morning sickness with DD, but I was also still nursing DS and I think that actually brought the MS on more. Otherwise exactly the same.

I have 3 boys and 1 girl.<br>
-w/ ds1 - carried very low and very out front, very sick the entire pg, I had yeast off and on the entire pg,new it was a boy from day 1.<br>
-w/ds2 - carried very very low (didn't know baby could get that low w/ out falling out, very out front, pretty sick until about 14 ish weeks, knew it was a boy from day 1.<br>
- w/ds3 - carried low(but not near as low as the others) I carried more all the way around and less out front. I was sick until about 12 wks and then puked about 1x a month until the end. Thought it was a girl but wasn't sure.<br>
-w/ dd1 -I carried her up front and really low like w/ ds2. i wasn't for sure but thought it was a boy. I was sick until about 14ish weeks and then threw up randomly. I had yeast off and on the entire pg.<br><br>
After all that I don't really think there was an extreme difference between boy./girl just from pg to pg.

I was just coming on to start the exact same thread! I have two boys. With both, I wasn't sick, my boobs were very sore the 1st trimester, I carried very low, was "all belly", didn't even show if you saw me from behind, gained exactly 30lb. The only thing different was my cravings. Very healthy veggies with ds1. And while I normally have a sweet tooth, I despised sweets. With ds2 I craved sweets big time! I ate ice cream every day.<br><br>
THIS pregnancy, I'm sick (no puking but very nauseous) and my boobs aren't sore. I'm wondering if it's a girl! I see that a lot of the comments don't back my theory up, but I'm still curious!<br><br>
ETA: EVERYONE told me I was having a boy with my first two. Strangers, friends, everyone. Except one friend told me both times it was a girl! I got so angry by the end that people were so sure of themselves. I really hope this one is a girl and I carry the same!

My first baby was a boy... Horrible nausea for the first trimester, wicked awful heartburn and indigestion the rest of the pregnancy. I gained about 35 pounds, but it was all baby belly for the most part... Carried him high. Not a lot of aches, and no emotional roller-coaster stuff. I actually would joke about why they called pregnant women basket-cases... I just didn't get it.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"><br><br>
My second baby was a girl... Totally different ball game. Cry-baby the WHOLE TIME, always felt like I had been steam rollered as far as aches go. But no nausea or heartburn or anything of that nature... At all. Ever. It was really nice. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> As far as body goes... I was eating predominately vegan during my second pregnancy and lost close to thirty pounds(I weighed about 165-70 starting out, I'm tallish, not happy with all that weight loss), so it's harder to say. I still carried pretty high, but further out... I think the further out is a second-baby thing, muscle memory and all.<br><br>
Now I am a huge believer in everything that goes on with a person being linked to nutrition. Part of me wants to believe that the hugely varying diets from baby to baby may have had an effect on the different experiences. This is all one big experiment for me... I do traditional foods now... Kind of an amalgam between the ways I was eating in my prior pregnancies. I feel really good actually, only symptoms being mild bloating and breast tenderness(which I had both times before). I want to say I am expecting a girl, as I don't feel nauseous at all, and I had to stop myself from crying tonight while I watched Hidalgo. *haha* But a boy wouldn't be out of the picture... While not nauseous, I've had a few very definite quease-outs over food I generally like a lot. I wanted to eat EVERYTHING with my daughter. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shrug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shrug"> I suppose I'll find out in January. I knew intuitively my other baby's genders... But I'm not feeling a solid pink or blue on this one yet. And I think that's fine... I like surprises. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

I was wondering the same! My first two pregnancies were so easy and this one has started off totally different...hungry & nauseated all the time. So, I too was wondering if that meant it's a boy! OR maybe it's just that I am almost 10 years older. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">
