For those of you who don't know what you're having yet.... What are your instincts on what you're having? Does DH/SO/DF think differently?


From the very beginning I've felt like I'm going to have a boy, but I can't help but wonder if it's wishful thinking lol. Since I already have my little girl, I'd love to have a boy this time around (although I'm blessed either way). Its funny though, 'cause Hubby thinks we're going to have a girl - lol

For those of you who now know the sex of your baby.... Were your instincts right?

I've felt like this baby is a boy all along. DH 'wants' a girl since we already have a lot of boys. I prefer a boy but will love it either way. My mother instincts have never failed me.

My instincts from day one were boy. Dh doesn't have a guess, he doesn't want to set himself up for disapointment. lol EVERYONE has told me boy.
With my youngest, DH wanted a boy and my instincts said girl and told him to be prepared for another girl. That's when he had me make him a deal that if it were a girl, we'd try for a 3rd. lol My instincts were right.
I can not wait to find out!!

Boy...but, I don't know if it's instinct or if it's just that after having three boys I figure that's what we have. Not a big deal either way. I've never had a gut instinct with any of mine. I always guess, but, I'm never sure... I actually think this is the most sure I've ever been.

I have thought girl from day one. I'll be happy with either, although I'm a little intimidated by a boy, LOL. DH is desperate for "his boy" but I just really think its a girl! All my dreams are about having girls, the chinese lunar calendar says girl, intelligender said girl. The Lunar Calendar said girl last time and I had a girl - all my last pregnancy I was convinced Carly was a girl and she was! So I just don't hold out much hope for a boy, I'll be shocked if we get one!

I'm actually intimidated by a girl. I really hope this baby is a girl. But if it's a boy I'll be happy too. Boys are just so easy it's crazy. Well my son is. He just goes with the flow and he's such a good boy. Plus, he LOVES his mama. This morning when we were getting dressed he taped me on my shoulder, i turned and said yes, and he said I love you mommy. My heart stopped. Now if I can keep him from saying that to little girls in about 10-12 years we'll we good. My instincts with this baby say girl. DF says girl too. All the charts say girl so we shall see.

I've always thought that my first child would be a girl...but ever since I got pregnant, I've been wondering if it could be a boy. We would be thrilled either way, but I'd always imagined myself with a little girl first...my friends and family are all divided, and the Chinese calendar predicts girl.

I would love to do the Intelligender test, unfortunately, I read that if you have PCOS (which I do), the test is not accurate...so we'll just have to wait until our June appt to see

Instincts for me are girl, BUT, with my dh's family history, it's highly unlikely. A boy would be easier but deep down, I would love another girl and I'm terrified I'm going to be slightly disappointed if it's a boy, although I love my boy.

With my son I was convinced I was having a girl. Now this time around I am trying not to think about it! I desperately want a little girl, but have no intuition when it comes to this. With my son I had girl dreams constantly and with this one I have boy and girl dreams. My friends think it's a boy, but my mom and husband think it's a a girl. I have my ultrasound June 1st so I guess I will find out then. I'm trying to prepare myself for a boy though...

and I was wrong with Holden, definitely thought he was a girl

I think it's a boy, dh thinks it's a boy.

I am horrible with instincts but dh knew that Olivia was a girl from the beginning so I'm trusting him.

I don't have one really. and even with my others I didn't really have it. I thought #4 and #5 were gonna be girls... but I think that was my hoping for a girl each time.

With my first, I wanted a girl SOOO badly I would actually get upset and cry if I started thinking it was a boy, but she turned to be a girl and I was over the moon! I told myself over and over again that it's gonna be a boy so that I was prepared so I wouldn't be let down, terrible huh? With my second, I thought at first that it was another girl but then the further along I got, the pregnancy started to be different than with DD and I found myself mentally referring to the baby as a "he" and I was right, he was a little boy and I love him dearly. I would absolutely love to have another baby boy but I truly feel that this baby is a girl, which I would also absolutely love, so I am not partial one or the other, but I have felt from the beginning that this baby is a girl so we will find out in 26 days!
