Feelings about the sex of the baby?

Alright ladies, I know it's going to be a little longer before we all find out our baby's sex.


So for fun, what's your gut feeling tell you? Do you feel one way or the other? Or no clue at all?

Re: Feelings about the sex of the baby?

  • I have a feeling this one is a girl. But also, a small part think it's a boy too. 

    With DS, I had no idea. DH thought he was a boy the whole time, and now he thinks it's a girl so we'll see if he'll be 2/2 correct

  • For our daughter I had a feeling she was girl. This one I have a super strong feeling it's a boy. Even before I was pregnant. We would really like a boy but would just love a healthy baby.

  • I have always felt like I will have two boys. Idk why.. and it's not that I wouldn't be super happy to have a girl. My intuition just says boy!

    My first pregnancy I had no feeling at all either way -- turned out to be a boy. 

    Last time I had a strong feeling it was a girl, and she was. 

    This is time I reallllly think it's a boy, so we'll see! Either way, we've got all the baby clothes ;)

  • I "knew" from the beginning that DS was a boy. I even started calling him by name to myself.

    I feel this one is a girl but I don't know if it's gut or desire lol

  • For DD I could have sworn she was a boy, all the old wives tales expect for the Chinese calendar said boy.  This time around i have clue, I feel completely different this time around so I don't even have a guess maybe in a few weeks.  Right now I'm clueless

  • It's too early for me to judge by symptoms (my morning sickness didn't start last time until 6 weeks) but I did have a tiny flash of a baby boy in a stroller the other day, and I guess I'll call that a sign?  I'd be thrilled either way. :)  If it's a boy we would get to use the name we've had picked out since our honeymoon!  Second girl name would be much trickier.

  • I am convinced this kiddo is a boy.  My HCG levels aren't anywhere near as aggressive as with my daughter, and I have nowhere near as many symptoms.  Whatever sex this kid is though, they are going to be hairy AF if you go by reflux.
    I had terrible reflux with my son and I was sad when he came out bald. I was hoping he'd get my husbands good hair genes lol. 

    I think it will be a girl. All of the women throughout my moms side have had boy, girl, girl for their first three. So if I follow tradition #2 will be a girl.

  • With my first (son), I had no idea.  With this one, I feel like it's a boy, but also I probably think that's because I want a boy, and I see myself as just being a boymom, lol.   When my friend did that "test" with your wedding ring on a thread, it was right for every single person sitting there, and it said that I would have 1 boy 1 girl.  We'll see!  Can't wait to find out!

    But I'd be more than happy either way (obviously!). Time will tell :)

    With DD I had zero clue. I've always felt like we would have two daughters, but since my BFP I keep thinking about a little boy and boy names, nurseries, etc. I'm only 6 weeks tomorrow but last time I was horribly sick and my acne was off the charts. It's early, but so far those things aren't an issue. Just like @dirtyboots, those are two signs to me. We will see as time goes on...

    Me (33). DH (37). DD (2.2012). MCs x4. After 4 years & 7 months, due 4.2018!

  • I feel so strongly that this is one is going to be a girl. With DS I thought he was a girl until the night before we had our ultrasound, I had a very clear vivid dream that I was being told the baby was a boy and I woke up and told H that we are having a boy and then 7 hours later it was confirmed! For now I'm sticking with intuition and saying this one is a girl.. guess we'll see!

    This is exactly what I was thinking! I knew from the day I found out I was pregnant that it was a boy and sure enough it was. This time I feel like I'm positive its going to be a girl, but maybe I'm wishing it into existence.

  • With DS I knew he was boy the whole time.

    With DD I had no clue. It was a very different pregnancy with different symptoms so I kind of thought maybe girl but i was still shocked as heck when she was born because I had convinced myself boy like the week before she came.

    With this kid I'm leaning boy. I'm interested to compare the pregnancies. Its so early for me now i have nothing to compare!

    Same. Heartburn all day long and DS was baaaalddd. Still at 12.5 months his hair is nowhere near needing a haircut. Not yet to his ears, back of his head hasn't grown at all, and his bangs are still about 3" above his eyebrows.

    @dirtyboots that's how I was as a kid. My mom said I really didn't have much hair until I was almost 3. My poor kids don't stand a chance.

  • I *knew* DS was a boy from the minute I found out I was pregnant. Dreams about having a baby boy and everything. If he had turned out to be a girl I would've died of shock.

    Every time I think of this LO I think girl, but it's not as strong a gut feeling as last time so we'll see.

  • I don't have a feeling one way or another yet. Probably because I'm actively not letting myself get attached yet (dang PGAL brain). Last time H and I were convinced it was a girl. We were wrong.

  • I feel like this baby is a boy, no real reason why, just a gut feeling, but I will be happy either way. If it's a boy, it'll be a new adventure; if it's a girl, we are all ready! I had no intuition before finding out DD's sex.

  • So far I feel exactly the same as last time, very mild symptoms just extra tired a little sore and a little bit of acne so maybe it's another girl. We are both kind of hoping for another girl but if we have a boy that will be great because then we will have one of each :)

    I'm the same way!  I was pretty much bald until my birthday.  I was shocked to my toes when my kid came out with an incredibly well developed head of hair (I'm talking she had highlights).  I felt like maybe I have a salon in my vagina I never knew about.

  • @sapphires-and-diamonds I can relate with the PGAL /don't get attached brain.  not even dh realizes how much anxiety just going to the bathroom brings me daily!  

    As for my hunch I'm thinking girl this time. No particular reason.

  • I had insisted DD was a boy, because I so badly wanted a boy. I'm sure this one is a girl, although I have no feeling one way or the other. My mom had a dream before I found out I was pregnant that I was pregnant with a little boy. She had a similar dream when I was pregnant with DD, so I'm kinda hoping she's right.

  • My thought was DD was a girl and everyone else thought boy but I was right. I had horrible morning sickness for so long... This time I was really hoping my pregnancy symptoms would be different! but so far I've already felt super sick again, nausea all day but have only thrown up once but I'm only 6weeks so it could get worst. That makes me think it's a girl again. 
  • Dd1 i thought for sure a girl. Dd2 i was convinced boy. This time I'm thinking boy but mh is convinced we only make girls.

  • I think it's a boy but I've thought I would have another boy before I was even pregnant. Chinese Predictor says girl but it also said girl for DS so...I can see myself as a boy mom but having a girl would be cool too ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 
  • So I had that stupid needle pencil test done when I was around 18 years old. It told me boy/girl/boy. I currently have a 6 year old boy and a 4.5 year old girl- sooo....I'm thinking boy because why not? But I think we are going to be team green this go around!

  • My whole life I knew I would have 2 boys and they would be 2yrs apart. I have them already.
    Now I have no clue what baby#3 is. Since my symptoms started extra early and are stronger, and include acne for the first time in my life I am thinking a girl. However, I have now dreamed twice that I had 3boys. 
    I have anxiety about having another boy because my mom's family seems to have a curse when it comes to sons. In diffrent ways every member of her family have always lost a son. I was 11 when my only brother died in a freak accident and I'm so worried about my boys!
  • I have no idea, but so far my acne and nausea is worse so maybe it's a girl this time? fx
    Me too... acne is way worse so I'm thinking girl
    YES THE ACNE

    Why am I breaking out like a hormonal teen?!

  • This is our fifth--- and all my previous pregnancies have been essentially identical, except for #4 (our first boy!), who was positioned posterior until he came out. I was in SO much pain the last several weeks, and was happily surprised with a bouncing boy when he made his entrance! :) (We've never found out sex with any of our babies, so all have been surprises!)

  • Possibly thinking girl? We kept calling it a "she" yesterday, and my husband is 2/2 in predicting our niece and nephew.  However, he is trying not to get too attached yet... we shall see.
