I have 3 boys. With all my pregnancy i had wicked "morning sickness" from the being till about the 5th month pretty much all day long. I carried low and out front, i craved sweets like crazy, and huge burgers, saucy hot wings (which i dont enjoy when im not preggo) all meats. I'm 13wks pregnant with my 4th, dont find out until dec. 18th about the gender. But thigs are really different with this pregnancy. I had "morning sickness" really bad for awhile, but its pretty much gone now, ill get it every now and again. I can never find anything to eat. I cant stand burgers :( and im not too interested in the sweets. Salads seems to be a plus with this child. lol I have been breaking out on my face like crazy. I broke out occasionaly with my other pregnancy, but not often. This time around i'm having issues trying to control the break outs. I'm wicked tired all the time. I get good sleep, and take my iron supplement, and im still wicked tired.
Those are my symptoms =)

I'm having a boy and I had nausea all day long up until 14 weeks, but rarely ever actually got sick. I've had a major craving for fresh fruits but a big aversion to meat which is probably why I'm anemic. I've had heartburn maybe twice, and that has just started lately, before I had no problems. I've gotten bad acne and have been extremely tired throughout the pregnancy (even before I was anemic). I haven't been overly emotional this whole time, though the crankiness is setting in now, but no crying spells. I've gained a lot of weight (over 40 lbs) but so far it all appears to be belly, thankfully. My little guy's heart rate is always right at 140 everytime. That's all I can think of for now, though I don't think you can really tell what sex you're having for sure until that baby comes out! It's fun to try and guess though, lol.

I have two boys. Both gave me the normal first trimester morning sickness and sore b**bs. This one is a girl and I am convinced she was trying to kill me with the morning sickness. No sore b**bs with her, but she is giving me that lovely pregnancy glow, you know, the red, blotchy face.



My little boys were MUCH nicer to me than this little diva. Not to mention, I'm carrying the hormones for myself and her, which are making me a crying mess over anything.

I looked up so many old wives tales when I couldn't wait to find out if I was having a boy or a girl. Every single website told me I was having a girl. Not even close to equal, like 80% of the signs pointed to girl.



I'm having a boy though! =)



http://www.amazingpregnancy.com/oldwivestales/ is one of the sites that told me I was having a girl

I'm having a boy & I had absolutely NO morning sickness at ALL this entire pregnancy!!I do have really bad heartburn/indegestion everyday & my cravings include orange juice, sweetened iced tea & steak. Every pregnancy is different though. No symtoms mean you're having either a boy or girl. It all depends on you & your baby. The only proven fact is that if you have heartburn during pregnancy, your baby will be born w/ alot of hair, however, it doesn't mean that if you don't have heartburn during the pregnancy that they won't be born w/ any hair.

I'm not gonna bore everyone with long details, but I read this book by an English geneticist and he has a theory that certain people are made for carrying boys and some girls. To put it in Layman's terms, if I'm from a "boy family", then it would explain why I either have a higher tendency to bear males and if I do become preggo with a girl, I will be sicker and the pregnancy will be harder.



There was a bunch of scientific mumbo jumbo, but it was a great book. It really made me think more of which type of family I come from. Dh comes from a "boy family".



If I can find the book, I'll post it on here for anyone that's interested.

I am having a boy and have had no morning sickness a few days I felt nauseas but that was it no throwing up. I had breast tenderness until 10 weeks and now it is on and off. I have no real cravings just when I see something I want I need it now and if I don't the need passes. I had really bad gas and bloating the first 8 weeks or so. But that is it! I have been lucky I think :)

I've had both, a girl and two boys. With my boys I mostly had light nausea and vomiting (once to twice a WEEK), smell aversions, heartburn, back pain, cravings. With my girl I had severe vomiting and nausea(3-6 times a DAY), smell aversions, very sore breasts, lightheadedness, exhaustion, and cravings! Which is why I feel thispregnancy (my 4th healthy) is a girl!! :) I'm hoping for a girl but my symptoms point towards a girl, well in my experience anyways. I don't know if it actually means anything, because every woman, and every pregnancy is different so there's no telling honestly. However, you know your body best and a motherly instinct is usually dead on :D

I have heard that if you crave sweets its a girl and if you crave salty things its a boy. When i was pregnant with my daughter, i wanted cookies all day long. so far with this one all i've been craving is salty things. With my daughter I had morning sickness and heartburn all the way through. I am having morning sickness with this one but no heartburn yet...but there is still plenty of time for that! I'm kinda hoping for another girl! :)
