    So.... I don't really know what all signs & symptoms are relevant to the 'science' of gender prediction, so I will just post out a list of everything I can think of that could be relevant.
    :)

    - I had morning sickness, but it only lasted 2-3 weeks and was not too bad, relatively speaking; I felt miserable for a couple weeks but never was actually sick (came close!)

    - I completely went off Indian food during first tri, and I'm still not totally back with it. It is usually my favorite food in the world!

    - I have been craving sweets (more than usual!). Can't get enough sugar. (Eating a piece of candy right now, LOL.)

    - I have had a few temper tantrums, but I am hot-headed anyway and they haven't been anything too out of the ordinary. No crying spells or anything like that.

    - In the last 1-2 weeks, I have had 3 or 4 very disturbing, very violent dreams... where I was physically fighting with someone or attacking someone, usually with a weapon... :shrug: I've had dreams like this on rare occasion before, but never so many so close together.

    - I have gained about 3-4 kg (7-9 lbs)

    - I think I've felt the baby move twice now, but nothing definitive really and definitely not often. :(

    - It's my first.


    Anything else I should include?? I'm 32, I'm a Taurus, my Chinese zodiac is the Serpent, my favorite color is blue, I come from a 2-girl family and hubby comes from a 2-boy family, baby was conceived in April... :flower:

    Hi Sekhmet

    I have no idea what gender your LO will be (as I have friends who had similar symptoms and they've all had different outcomes), but just wanted to say enjoy your 20 week scan - I too have mine on Tuesday and can't wait to see the LO again!!!!

    Thanks, guys. :) And you enjoy your scan, too, JenStar!

    I have had a feeling it was a girl since day 1, but my mom is sure it's a boy...

    I remember in school our science teacher saying that if the father of baby is one of a few brothers and no sisters that chances are the child would be a son. My DH has 2 brothers and the one who has a child has a boy.
