    Default Good old gender chat :-P

    So tell me lady's of 2 different sexes
    What stood out for a boy over a girl in your pregnancy that made you go yup it's a girl this time or boy this time and have it been right?
    According to everything I find so far I'm having a boy again which id love the only thing I'm finding different this time around is I haven't gained much weight at all but put this down to second baby and being older most of my friends say girl.
    So I'm curious to hear what everyone else experiances :-)

    I've had two boys and one girl. Both my boys (first and third babies) I had patch of dermatitis on the same spot on my chin. I have never had dermatitis before anywhere and both times it cleared completely when i gave birth. I didn't get that with my daughter. That was the only really noticable thing that stands out. I guess I wasn't as big with my daughter as well.

    I have 2 boys both pregnancies were different. I too gained barely anything second pregnancy and had heaps of people guess it was a girl. Worse MS too. I always thought boy based on the fact he was super active in the womb, and the fact that boys outnumber girls in our extended family 4-1. Sorry not much help, I think gender guesses are a load of BS, it's a 50-50 chance, that is all! 😂

    I have a son and I'm pregnant with a girl.

    With DS, no morning sickness and with my girl a bit of nausea.

    Terrible skin with my girl and beautiful skin with my boy.

    craved savoury with DS and sweet with this one.

    My hcg was higher with this one than with DS too.

    I have one of each. Both pregnancies were very similar except with DS I had a lot more braxton hicks and pelvic pain, but I think that had a lot more to do with it being a second pregnancy rather than sex of the baby. He was a full kg heavier at birth too so that explains why I felt so much bigger!

    My weight gain, morning sickness etc were all pretty much the same.

    There were some differences. I had moderate MS with DS. Horrible MS with DD. Otherwise everything was similar. I actually just had weird gut instincts when it came to whether I was carrying a boy or girl. I knew DS was a boy and I knew DD was a girl. Could be a fluke but I just knew.

    No real differences in early pregnancy. Girl then boy. More heartburn with DS and had some pelvic instability but i think that was more because it was second pregnancy.

    I have 2 girls and their pregnancies were mirror image of each other. No ms, extreme fatigue, no cravings, off coffee first trimester. Am early pregnant with our 3rd and so far everything is different already have ms, no more tired than normal and off all food especially sweet things. So time will tell!

    2 boys for me and very different pregnancies. Carried one high the other low, gained much less weight with smaller bump second time, massive swollen feet and fingers etc with ds1 but none with ds2. So if I hadn't known the sex I would have been sure ds2 was going to be a girl.
