Gender Guess Revisited

So as we are getting further along and so close to finding out. I'm a little late with this question for some...I think we have two ladies possibly finding out today. I was wondering is your original gender guess the same or have you changed and how "solid" are you feeling on your guess?

I'm so very excited that we are reaching this milestone. IME it seems to go so fast once I hit the halfway point. Biggrin

AFM, dare I say it...I might be jinxing myself...but I'm having a girl feeling for this one. I think it's more of a "feeling" this time than a comparison of symptoms but after DS2 I dont' really trust myself either way. :rolleyes:

I had a boy "feeling" for DS1 and was correct. We found out with him and I went into the u/s not really knowing, of course, but would have really been surprised if they told me he was a girl. With DS2 I didn't really have a feeling so much but thought he was a girl. The pregnancies were fairly similar but had a few differences that just made me think he was a girl. Also our next door neighbors have a DS1 who is 6 months younger than my DS1 and we were pregnant together with our second child. She was due 5 weeks behind me and found out early on they were having a girl. This may have somewhat affected my thought too just b/c of our similarities. So, DS2 was really a surprise at birth b/c we waited and I had been leaning toward girl...but he is all boy. Smile

Ultimately I will be happy either way. My prayer has been for the Dear Lord to bless us with the best fit, personality and gender wise, for our family. I would feel bad for my little girl to always long for a sister or feel "odd person out" so if it is best for our family to be boys then so be it. Blum 3

I am still desperately hoping for a girl! I've never been one to "feel" about gender either way. But I am sort of feeling girl this time, based on my symptoms. I have way more acne than I ever did with my boys. I am smaller than I was with my boys (and my boys were huge, my DD was average). I am afraid though that since I want it to be a girl so badly maybe I am just wishful thinking???

Only 3 days until our ultrasound!!!!!!!!!!!! SmileSmileSmile

If it turns out to be a boy I will admittedly be a little disappointed, but after a few days I'll feel better. I have no shame admitting that since it was the same with DS2. I cried when I found out he was a boy, but I love my little dude so much it doesn't matter Smile

I've had boy vibes my whole pregnancy until the last few weeks, I've been calling baby "she" without thinking. I really don't have a preference either way. A boy would be great for my DS but another little girl would also be so great (especially because I could justify spending a little more on DD's clothes and whatnots haha!).

I kind of have ably feeling still, but I've been right 1/3 of the time sooooo, it's probably a girl, lol. Hey, if I'm right I'll end with being right 50% of the time. If I'm wrong, I'm only right 25% of the time, but don't tell dh either of those odds. Wink

I don't really feel one way or the other gender wise either. I never have. All of my pregnancies have had differences and similarities, and nothing ever "stands out" one way or the other. If I were to have a "logical" guess I would say this one is a girl, simply because my DH and I clearly have a tendency to make girls. BUT, since the last one was a boy, perhaps we have "switched genders" and we will now make boys for awhile. I have seen it a lot in large families where they have a fairly equal number of both boys and girls, but it is not uncommon to have a run or 3 or 4 same gender in a row. So with that in mind, I'm holding out hope for a boy. That being said, I have absolutely no clue what this baby is!!

I am still leaning toward boy but I have absolutely nothing to corroborate this feeling being that this is my first. My friends are starting to take bets and the vast majority of them say boy. I don't get to find out until the first week in February, though. Sad

My Grandmother had 12 kids. She had 8 boys until she had three girls and ended with a boy. So she definitely had hers in groups!

At first I was thinking giri. A few days ago I started thinking boy. And now I'm at a total loss again. I have no idea. Oh well - only like 22 more weeks til I find out Smile

Lurker, but my best friend is one of 7. 3 boys and then 4 girls. I'm hoping that's what happens when we have our next one since I already have 3 boys Smile

I originally thought this baby was a boy. But now I'm thinking a girl. Mostly because of all the acne and sweet cravings I'm having. I had that with DD and none of it with DS. I craved meat with DS and this time meat kind of sceaves me out just like when I was pregnant with DD. so we will see in 22 weeks!!

LOL, Adina...it'll be here before we know it though. So funny how the birth of our little ones seem so far away now but in a few 20ish short weeks we'll be like "I can't believe it's time". Wink

I have very strong feelings that I am having a boy. If I got to choose, I would choose a girl so my daughter can have a sister, but I really don't mind!

I"m thinking the same as you. This pregnancy is SO different from DD that I beleive its a boy. I found out on the 21st so I'm super excited about only having to get through next week. Either way I will be happy. I will be glad to have another girl...my sister and I are close and we are only 2 yrs apart. So I hope for the same for Alex if this baby is a girl.

My sisters and I are very close and I am having another girl so that is exciting for me now. Also Our DD's are 4 days apart in age!

On DH's side, we only have nephews. 4 of them so far from 3 of his siblings. DD is the only granddaughter on his side so far. They keep joking to DH that he's destined to only have girls.

I am going with girl, although I was totally wrong with DD. I will say that the Morning sickness/nausea was more like DD than DS, so that's why I guessed girl. I will find out on Monday.

On DH side, this will make the 7th boy, with my DD being the only girl. On my side, this boy will make things even.
