Thank you craqinette! I've been hit with the nausea big time this week my own fault for saying all last week that my symptoms aren't that bad! All last week i thought it's another boy as it was just like my pregnancy with him. This week the pregnancy is just like it was with my daughter so who knows?!
Anyone else got any gender hunches?

Nausea has hit me quite bad, and my hcg is higher than with my first, I think it's a girl but I'm unsure if it's wishful thinking or not!!

This pregnancy is different than either of my past two. It seems more like mine with DS, but I think it is because I was about the same starting weight with both of them, where I weighed a bit less when I got pregnant with DD. The bloating, heartburn, indigestion, etc can be worse duue to that.

Welcome gemmy.
Misspriss I know I've been wondering how symptoms might be different but at the same time it's so difficult to compare because you already have a child/children in the world depending on you. It's a welcome distraction I suppose on one hand but obviously tiring too. Plus Christmas I've found to be tough on parents, definitely a tiring holiday!
Kittykat I felt symptom wise my second was a boy before I had my scan and part of it was hunch and i was right, so you never know you could be right. I know it's 50/50 but mother's intuition means a lot in my book. Put it this way I would've been shocked if at my 20w scan my second had been a girl. I was so sure.
Whats frustrating is I have given everything away. Everything. So my lovely mothercare maternity bras with no underwire that I'm pining for now are long gone and my trousers are so uncomfortable as mine are all high wasted skinny jeans (they're flattering on the stomach with a long top) but make me feel so uncomfortable now. But I really feel I want to wait until 12 weeks rather than spend money and/or face having to throw anything out. Same as jinxing anything by buying baby clothes so early I suppose. Just wish I had some stashed away so I felt a bit more comfortable. Anyone know of any maternity bargain places in the UK? I want to get the new look belly bands for sure as they make your non maternity clothes last a lot longer.
Hope you aren't all feeling as uncomfortable as me don't worry I'm in pj bottoms as soon as we get in the door since leaving my jeans undone all the time was leaving me at serious risk of exposing my minge to the postman! Lol

I have a belly band, can't wear jeans without that and a hairband. I haven't bought any maternity clothes yet and I packed away all my maternity clothes or sold them from previous pregnancies. I told DH I sold them, but I secretly saved some of my very favorites just in case this happened. Wish I know where I'd put them though!

I'm starting to look different in my shirts. I have been wearing DH's shirts with yoga pants at home, which I used to do but I'm afraid someone might notice the change. We are having a difficult time with our inlaws, who we live with, who are liable to be the most judgmental of this pregnancy. MIL has had some kind of breaking point Christmas day, she has been mean and nasty ever since. Like today, she made a snide comment about me taking a shower last night, because when she got home there was no hot water. How was I supposed to know 1) when she got home, and 2) that she wanted a shower? If she is this snippy and rude about me taking a shower...I just don't want to hear it. I'm worried that our presence in our in-laws house is going to cause problems for them in their marriage and I don't want to be the cause of that.

Too much stress for the baby.
