Especially about the gender you are having (or had, in previous pregnancies)?

I have to say, I may only be 1 for 4 I was SURE DD1 was a girl. I mean cocky sure. Sure enough!

For the others... not so much. With DS, I wasn't sure at all, but was ecstatic when they announced he was a boy.

With DD2, I swore (cocky sure, again. 100% plus some. I mean SURE) "he" was a boy. Um. No.

And with this one, I can only say I was fairly sure it was a boy. Just slightly. I was confident we could use my favorite boy name, finally (didn't with DS for a couple reasons). Um... according to the M21... no. (but I am in denial and won't face reality until the anatomy scan on the 30th).

So, my mommy instincts pretty much suck. I was SURE. SO. SO. Sure. I mean, I had dreams and all those old wives tales (most) all that stuff! BUT, really, with all 4 pregnancies, no difference in pregnancy symptoms at all, so I couldn't use that as any indicator either way.

Yeah, as far as guessing gender goes, not so good. My first I swore was a boy, wrong! My second, I kinda thought boy again, but didn't really have a strong feeling (boy). This one I'm feeling is a girl, but I've taken all the old wives tale "tests" and all predict boy. I find out next Saturday 27, so we'll see how good my instincts are.

4 for 4 so far.

#1 wanted boy, thought it was a boy, got a boy.
#2 wanted another boy, but suspected girl, got a girl.
#3&#4 wanted boy/girl twins, thought it was boy/girl twins, am told it's boy/girl twins

And...actually...the baby I lost at 11weeks, I was so sure it was a boy we were already calling it by the boy name we picked out. The genetic testing they did on the fetal tissue after my miscarriage showed that it was in fact a boy. So really, I am 5 for 5.

Won't know for this one until Aug. 6th (Depending on baby cooperation, of course), but I was 100% correct with my other 4. I'm pretty sure this one is a boy. I will be utterly SHOCKED if it's a girl. Not saying I can't be wrong, but I will be shocked if I am.

I had a kinda feeling with my first two and they were right, a boy and a girl. The last one my husband and I both thought it was for sure a boy, absolutely convinced and were completely shocked when we seen it was a girl! So this time I think it's a boy, but not overly confident and think part of it might be because I'm really hoping for a boy. Unlike everyone else though, they don't do the anatomy scan at my Dr.'s office until 24 weeks! So I have 7 more weeks to go!!! Trying to figure out a way at my next appt. to get her to look for me though, but we'll see.

I was right with my first even though it was the opposite of what I wanted. I was wrong on this one.

2 out of 4. I didn't guess wrong on the other two, I just had no feeling either way or kept waivering. I seem to be unclear on #2 of the same gender born consecutively.

I had a feeling this one was a boy, but I'm one of those totally indecisive people that can't be sure of anything so I kept second guessing myself. that, and i leaned toward wanting a little girl lol

I would be 3 for 3 but I was hardcore in denial with my first so while I "knew" he was a boy I was hoping and praying and wishing for a girl. Atti I knew at 3 or 4 dpo that I was going to be pregnant and having a boy and everyone called me crazy. This time I knew before I even DTD and I have instant messages to prove it lol.

With DS1 my instincts were right and I knew he was a boy.

With DS2 I thought he was a girl because that pregnancy was so different, but it was mostly wishful thinking I'm sure.

With this one I have a feeling it's a third boy. I don't feel the disappointment that I did with DS2 though if it's not a girl. I have my gender scan in two weeks and every time I think about it I can just see the screen with "it's a boy" lol.

I really was sure/wanted a girl first time around...but the farther along in my pregnancy I got the more I thought it was a boy. I just decided I wasn't sure. It was a boy. This time I am having the same girl feelings again early on...but I am not sure if that because EVERYONE seems to think I HAVE to have a girl this time--moderately annoying. But I will say so far when I look at names, I only like girl names. I can't really find any boy names I like, this is totally opposite of the last pregnancy. I could only find like 3 girl names I liked last time and I had like 15 boy names on the list. We'll see. I'm not that great at it, lol.

I guess, I am 2 for 3. My first I just "knew" I was having a girl. She is very much a girl. Second, I wanted a boy but thought I was having another girl. I did. This one I swore I was having a boy but was told at 15 weeks, he is a she.
