Is a mothers instinct always right!??
I already have a son. And I'm pretty sure
this baby is a boy, but the father thinks its a girl.
I believe and feel its a boy!!!!

Probably not, no.
I thought this baby was a boy and he is, but theres no way of actually knowing for sure apart from scans etc. lol.

No a mothers instinct isn't always right. I thought I was having twins and its only one baby. And I thought it was a boy too. But my fiancee kept telling me it was only one baby and it was a girl and sure enough he was right.

Hahaha i have NO mothers instinct when it comes to gender!



I thought i was going to have a girl but kept having very vivid dreams i was pregnant with a boy or would see a toddling boy etc..



sure enough LO is a boy.



With this pregnancy i've had one dream that i went for a scan and it was a girl... BUT i think thats because i said to DH how strange it was i haven't dreamt about this pregnancy yet.. so i think its a fluke.



I have no idea what i could be having and nothing is making me feel that its either gender LOL! ... our baby is going to be genderless to me until the ultrasound tech can tell me otherwise.

Nope. I think instinct can be effected by what you want and influenced. I think it's often right, but not always

I have a terrible mother instinct.
I swore my son was a girl.
I swore my daughter was a boy
I swore this baby was twin boys. It's just one girl. LOL

Not sure..I guessed all 3 of mine correctly weeks before my ultrasounds and was right all 3 times.But could have been just coincidence.Never know.

Well, the odds of 50/50 are pretty good regardless! :)

I thought that we were going to have a girl because we both really wanted a boy for our first. I never had strong feeling that he'd definitely be one or the other, though. Obviously we had a boy. :)

I think it can be right sometimes...you have a 50/50 chance on gender, so its probably right 50% of the time.
With my first they told me it was aboy, but I still felt strongly she was a girl. And sure enough, she is a girl.
With my second we didn't find out the gender, but I knew it was a girl. And she is a girl.
With my third I wanted a girl and knew it was a girl, so when I saw the p***s on the screen I almost cried right then. We weren't going to find out the gender again, but right before the appt I had this feeling I needed to find out, so we did. So I guess that's kinda like intuition.
