Is it true?

So I've heard lots of Old Wive's Tales about predicting the gender of baby. I don't put much stock in them of course, but I have been wondering lately about the prevalence of morning sickness and having a girl. It is said that if you experience morning sickness, there is a greater chance of having a girl. Studies have been done to confirm this, although the findings are only something like 53% to 47%... so... not a huge difference.

BUT, with Anna I did experience considerable morning sickness, as well as a few other very specific symptoms. This pregnancy, thus far, has been virtually identical to the last. Down to what symptoms I have, when they started, intensity, etc. I am 12 weeks today, and still feeling nauseous, so this symptom does seem to be lasting longer than last time (I believe it subsided around 11 weeks).

Soooo.... I am feeling fairly confident that this is a girl. I think part of it is just intuition, and the other part, I must admit, is because my pregnancies are so similar. What do you think? Is that any indicator that I'm having another girl?

I think it is true! Two little girls will be sooo cute! Although my personal opinion is that boys are the best. =)

Lindsey said...

Paigy, were your pregnancies similar with both boys?

Paige said...

Yes, they were very similar. I had different food cravings but the nausea level and fatigue were exactly the same.

Had three very different pregnancies, all boys! First was super nauseous and tired, second threw up for 17 weeks straight, and third pregnancy just really tired but not nausea and no vomitting.

Well I haven't had any boy-pregnancies, but my girl pregnancies were both similar AND different. (Okay maybe that's contradictory?) With Anna I was SO SICK, just awful, exhausted, etc. etc. With Kaitlyn I was all those things but to a lesser degree. SOOOOO I'm not sure.

But you can't discount a mommy's intuition, so I say you're having a girl!!! :)
