When I was pregnant with both my boys, I thought it was a girl each time. Apparently I have no sense of intuition about the gender of my babies in the womb! Did you all guess correctly with your kids? I’m curious to find out! :) --Julie, Strongmoms facilitator
This is my first pregnancy. i just felt it was a boy. when i would go to the stores i would look at boy clothes never girl. i already had a name picked out! even though i had some girl dreams i still felt like it was a boy. when they told us it was a boy at the ultrasound me and my husband high fived lol! the tech laughed lol.
That is to funny Julie! Good thing you didn't have the birth announcements all picked out in pink!
Nice work Serenity. :) Your story made me smile.
I have been right with some of my children and wrong with others. I thought my last baby was a girl for sure, but he was a boy! Surprise Surprise!
My wife guessed wrong three out of four! It's funny how during pregnancy, one lady would come up and very certainly say she was carrying like it's a boy, and the next day someone would say she was definitely holding a boy... flipping a coin has just as good odds!
Good to know I'm not alone! Serenity - sounds like you are one of the exceptional people out there! I love your story about the ultrasound. :-)
I have no intuition either lol. Last time I thought I might be having a girl (I had a boy) but I was never really sure. This time I have no clue at all. My feelings don't really go toward boy or girl.
For me, I made a right guess for my baby girl. The time I am pregnant many of my neighbors, friends and even me and my husband guess it correctly that it's a baby girl. I kept on reading articles on how to know your baby.
For us, we decided to wait until delivery to find out.
Most of the way I was convinced it was a boy and everyone who saw me said I was carrying a boy. Even my husband felt it was a boy. Then we picked out both a boy and girl name to be ready. One night I couldn't sleep and started to dislike our girl name so then thought, hm, maybe its a girl.
Then during delivery my doctor didn't know so the full room of nurses and doctors kept saying the symptoms I was having during labor that it would be a boy. At final delivery, they cried its a girl! She went straight into the a side area to be taken care of due to some complications and when it was all ok they held her up for me so I could confirm.
It goes to show that not all the old wives tales are accurate.
Cath - Such a fun suprise! I LOVE it when my friends/family waits until delivery to find out the sex. It makes for such an exciting day. :-)
My good friend waited until the delivery to find out boy or girl. However she was so sure it was a boy that she handmade all blue birth announcements! Then SURPRISE a bouncing baby girl. :) lol. A pink ribbon was added to each blue announcement.
We waited for all four of our kids until delivery... amazing how this frustrates many people! What a surprise for my wife and me when she delivered a boy fourth time around after three girls. I do have to confess that I thought I may have spotted something I shouldn't have at one ultrasound that may have given it away! Wasn't positive but now I know what I saw!
I happened to go to a psychic and she told me, my boyfriend didn't believe me and was set on a boy. Being a man I think that's always what they want, but when the tech told us it's a girl I was like booya told ya so. So I was only right bc the psychic told me so, but we still picked out a boy name just in case. (:
Clarkf - funny story! :-) What girl name did you settle one? Cute profile picture!
Her name is Brielle and thank you. She's so beautfiul but whem you put a phone or camera infront of her she blanks lol : D
