At the risk of sounding crazy - does anyone else 'know' what their future family looks like?

PS my two boys are more awesome, beautiful and heart-singingly wonderful than I could ever have imagined. (I just didn't imagine that before I had them smile )

I was totally 100% utterly convinced I was having a girl for my first, so much so that I bought a lot of girls clothes and nursery stuff before the 20 weeks scan. I knew it I knew it I knew it. I had dreams about this girl for years, it was written in the stars. Since I was a small child. When I was a child, I always drew pictures of me as a mummy with a daughter, not a son. My Grandma died just before I got pregnant. It was a sign. Her name was echoed in the one I had always picked for my future daughter. Grandma was sending me my daughter. Two seperate psychics had predicted a daughter for me in the year my child was due to be born. To say I was confident it was a girl is an understatement. I would have bet a years salary on it.

I had a boy.

Then another smile

If I'd have got a girl I would have thought I just "KNEW" it.

Nobody, nobody "knows" it. If they get what they thought they "knew", it's coincidental. It's highly unlikely you will have twins.

I was always 100% certain I would have a son. And I do!

Never really had any strong 'feelings' about any other children but we are ttc so we shall see.

I see me, hubby and a daughter.

One child will be quite enough for us grin

Oh yes, one of each two years apart. Have two dds about to start ttc no 3...

It's interesting.

Anyway doesn't matter. I'm just hoping for a 2014 baby!

I did. I always knew I'd have a DS first then a dd, and that's what I've got. I gave DS' clothes away after he outgrew them even though we wanted dc2, because I knew that would be a girl. This sounds so batty! But I have never felt such conviction about anything.

Jaykay- yes we have always thought we will have a little girl....2 years and 4 miscarriages later I'm not so sure though. A couple of weeks ago when we were talking about things dh said to me close your eyes and just look to the future what do you see, I said us with a baby, he said what is it, I said a girl, he said that's what I always see....so no you are not the only crazy one! smile

I thought I'd have twin boys next, I was convinced I would although never said anything to anyone other than dh is joke. But an early scan shows just 1 in my tummy. I also thought I knew how many children I'd have, but after 6mc, 2 horrible pregnancies and now embarking on pregnancy number 9 I'm not sure I want 5. Remember to just go with the flow and be happy with what you have smile

jayjay - yes. DH and I absolutely knew we'd have one girl. I felt it in my bones when I was first pregnant. We discussed it.

We have two boys. grin I can't imagine wanting anyone else or any other situation making me as happy as I am.

jaykay987 Sun 22-Sep-13 16:55:48

So, Im sure most people who read this thread will think Im mad.
To be clear - Im not currently pregnant.
DH and I are ttc and I swing from feeling positive, to worrying that we'll never get pregnant. We've never had a scare and I hope with every bone in my body we will be able to conceive a child.

However, I have a very very strong feeling, and have done for years, that I will have twins. This is not something I have ever said out loud (as clearly I am insane). I haven't had any dreams, or visions or a reading from a psychic. But since I was a small child, I have known I will have twins.

Now we are ttc, the thought terrifies me! But given there is no history in either of our families - the the odds are extremely unlikely.

I jut wanted to write this down, just to see whether anyone else 'knows' what their family looks like, or whether its just me thats crazy?
