Anyone have a 'gut' feeling about the sex of their baby and were right?
I am absolutely convinced I am having a boy... not really sure why to be honest! We weren't going to find out the sex but DH really wants to know and convinced me, and now I am so excited to know. I will be over the moon with a boy or a girl, have no particular preference.
I know symptoms vary from person to person and pregnancy to pregnancy, but I hear an old wives tale is that the more sickly you are during pregnancy the more likely you are to be carrying a girl? And also, if you are having a boy, you can become more hairy due to the testosterone levels being slightly higher? Well I have only been sick 4 times, and am getting dark hairs on my belly below my belly button.
Haha, I know this could be totally coincidental though!
Any thoughts anyone?
I don't believe the tales about certain symtoms at all, I think its all to do with how you carry and every pregnancy is different. But my mam has 4 kids and knew the gender of hers every time before finding out, so maybe you do "just know".
So I have had a gut feeling I was having a boy.. had a boy dream. I crave the salties I have hair growing on my tummy.. But also I have the worst morning sickness. I really wanted a girl but kinda knew inside its a boy.. And I found out yesterday he is in fact all boy.
i was convinced i was having a boy.. from symptoms to cravings to gender predictor tests and chinese calendar....im having a girl. when i saw between the legs i burst into tears... both shock and happiness and a little sadness i didnt get my little man. then i got over it when i saw her stick her tongue out on the threeD scan... xxx
Yep, me, I was totally convinced I was having a boy. I had picked girls names etc as they were easier, but I said to my mum that I dont really know why I'm bothering as I am having a boy. When I pictured my nursery, I seen a boy's nursery.
In fact, the funny thing is that even before I was pregnant, when I was still a little unsure if I was doing the right thing, I had a vision (not a dream, just a day dream really) and I was in my living room, with black bottoms, a white vest, a towel over my shoulder and a little boy in my arms!!!!
My husband and I were completely sure we were having a boy. I told everyone it was a boy, so I didn't even know why we were bothering with the ultrasound. We both had 4 brothers and no sisters. The symptoms have nothing to do with boy or girl. I never threw up, only felt a bit queasy for 2 weeks, and Im getting a hairy stomach (yuck).
Our jaws both dropped when we saw between the legs at the ultrasound and the tech announced it was a girl. I was so happy I cried a tad.
I really wanted a daughter, but I just "knew" it was a boy. I was wrong. Intuition means nothing. You are going to get it right 50% of the time anyway, lol...
I had a gut feeling with dd and I was right. This time round I don't really have that gut feeling yet. I didn't have any sickness with my dd but I have this time round. The only feeling I have is that it may be a boy because the pregnancy is so different. I don't think we are going to find out sex so will see in 6 months time. x
