With my first, I was adamant it was a boy. I was planning nursery colours/theme, had bought a grey and teal pram, picked out a name....and it was a girl. I cried because I was 100% sure it was a boy, I'd spent the first 21 weeks bonding with her as a boy, but I was wrong.

With this baby, I feel strongly it's a girl, but I also really want a girl. All of my scan pictures had girl guesses. My Mum thinks this one is a boy - she was the only one right about DD, because she guessed girl then.
So naturally, because I feel like it's a girl, I'm placing my bets I'm carrying a boy!

I was 100% convinced my first was a boy, so convinced I probably would have fallen off the bed in shock if they'd told me he was a girl

This time around I have no real feeling, I sway more towards girl but I don't know if that's because I secretly want one or not so I try and convince myself it's a boy

My instinct was that my son was going to be a girl. It was all I could imagine.

Then when I fell pregnant with my second I was convinced it was a boy. A brother for my son. I imagined then playing together and being best friends. It was a girl.

This time I really don’t know. We had our 20 week scan yesterday and we didn’t find out...

You have a 50% chance of being right. Maybe your instincts are spot on.

With my first the second I started getting sick I was convinced it was a girl. I was hoping for a boy but I just knew it was a girl. And I was right.

This time this pregnancy has been so different (barely any sickness, different cravings) that Im so convinced that at least one baby is a boy. But idk if I feel that way becaus I really want a boy or what lol. We find out in a little over 3 weeks

I believe in maternal instinct. With my first I had nothing to compare her to so I thought she was a boy just because of the old wives tales (had no sickness with her, felt great, didn't break out in acne, etc.) so I was surprised when I found out she was a "she". However in my next pregnancy, I just knew it was going to be a boy because it was the complete polar opposite of her pregnancy... I was sick until 20 weeks, had acne like a school boy, carried all in front, etc. Although I had some sickness with DD2 it was nothing like with my boys so I speculated she was a girl and was correct. For baby #4 I just knew he was a boy even though everyone was telling me I was going to have another girl. So I was correct in 3 out of 4 pregnancies.

The pattern has been girl, boy, girl, boy for us so at first I thought this baby was probably going to be a girl but now that I'm further along, I'm thinking another boy. Morning sickness was just too rough. I just started feeling better literally once I turned 16 weeks. We just found out today we are indeed team

I felt that my son was a boy as soon as we got a positive pregnancy test. I never even entertained the thought it could be a girl, I even referred to him as ‘baked bean ben’ from the start. This time I’ve felt like it’s a girl from the start, also this pregnancy is completely different, I’ve been really sick, when I wasn’t at all with my son. We have our gender scan on Sat, so we’ll see. It would be nice to have 1 of each, but I wouldn’t be upset either way, still so shocked we were able to get pregnant again x
