I don't know. I thought I was having a little girl the first time and ended up having a boy. My sister was convinced she was having a boy and ended up with a girl. So, I can't say for sure.

I kept having boy dreams and my instinct told me I was having a boy. I was right. But I kept having twin boy dreams which totally freaked me out so I'm glad I was wrong about having two in there!

My Mom knew what she was having with all four of pregnancies and decorated the nursery and bought clothes according to her intuition. She was right every single time and had 3 boys and 1 girl. She thought I was having a girl and was wrong though.

Maybe just a lucky guess?

I dunno......I've guess right 5 out of 5 times!

I told my mom and hubby that our first daughter was going to be a girl from day one and they laughed at me. I laughed last when SHE was born

With my 2nd girl, I also KNEW she was a girl. We actually weren't able to find out before she was born that it was a girl .... but I knew it so strongly that I didn't buy a single gender neutral item or boy item. Just had all my girl stuff out!

With my 3rd girl, I also just knew .... and I thought that it was just me thinking that I wasn't going to have any boys..... and she was a girl.

After that ... I said, if I were to have any more, I wouldn't really want a boy and that if I could pick (which of course I can't :lol) I would just stick with girls because boys scared me

When I got pregnant with my 4th ....I just knew it was a boy. This time I wasn't vocal about it cuz it kind of scared me to think about having a boy. But... none the less ..... he was all boy.

My fifth pregnancy, I knew it was a girl from the moment I knew I was pregnant. It didn't matter what anyone said... I knew. She was a girl

I have a knack for this kind of thing. Not just correctly "guessing" the sex of my own babies, but others' as well. I correctly guessed both my children to be just what they turned out to be (first one - girl, second one -boy). I always tell people "I knew" because that's what my mother's intuition told me with both of them. But when it comes to guessing other people's babies...I think it's just a lucky guess. The feeling is definately stronger for me when I'm "guessing" the sex of my own children.

Thank you Jaidynsmum for my beautiful siggy!

This I do believe in. I have number 3 on the way. My first 2 were girls and I never really had a feeling either way with them but as soon as I walked into that U/S clinic for the 20 week appointment I was overcome with the strongest feeling they were both girls. I was right. With this one I didn't feel a sense either way except a couple times I would think maybe it's a girl and then other times I wasn't sure but no really strong feeling. At the 20 week U/S I walked in and felt NOTHING at all towards what the gender may be. Baby had it's legs crossed and I never found out then but when I was 26 weeks and went for the 3D I walked in and felt Boy. I remember looking at my mom and saying omg it's a boy. Sure enough about 5 minutes later it was confirmed and I knew it before she even pointed it out. This time he wasn't shy about showing off if ya know what I mean. LOL

I was sure my first was a girl (although I wanted a boy). I was completely wrong. Our 21 week u/s showed a boy!
With my second, the u/s tech said 80% sure it was a girl. I *knew* the tech was wrong. I had a really strong feeling I was having another boy. After going back a few weeks later, we learned my instinct was right.
With my last... I had no idea.
This time, I think boy.

I think there is such a thing as motherly instinct when guessing the baby's gender, but I don't think it's always 100% reliable either. This is our first and everyone (including DF and I) are convinced that it's a girl. Even so, I wouldn't go as far as to buy a bunch of girl things, because I don't think it's definite. Idk, I guess I'll find out in a month or so

I had a very strong feeling with both of mine that they were girls and I was right both times.
