Hey folks
just thought I would see what the stats were so to speak on how accurate your first instinct re:gender was?

I'm 8 weeks and feel certain I'm having a boy.....only got another 12 weeks to go before I can find out for definite wink

TakesTwoToTango Tue 19-May-15 21:56:56

Yes, three times.

LorryHen Tue 19-May-15 21:58:01

Yes smile

YouMakeMyHeartSmile Tue 19-May-15 21:58:42

No. Convinced boy both times, 2 girls.

mamalovebird Tue 19-May-15 21:59:25

Yes, with both my ds & dd.

Thurlow Tue 19-May-15 21:59:41

Yes. Just knew it was a girl, and it (she!) was.

OhHolyFuck Tue 19-May-15 22:00:34

I was with ds1, wasn't sure about ds2 and not sure about this one either although had a very vivid dream the other night about blue balloons so maybe it's trying to tell me it's ds3!

RoganJosh Tue 19-May-15 22:00:37

I was certain each time and wrong all three times.

rootypig Tue 19-May-15 22:01:24

Nah, I thought boy - most people do. Someone did a piece of work on it, let me see if I can find it. It argues that in our culture male is considered default, female exception.

Cric Tue 19-May-15 22:01:41

Nope!! And I was convinced!

Roomba Tue 19-May-15 22:03:10

No first time - was sure DS was a girl.

Yes second time - never ever considered for a second that DS2 would be a girl.

SeekingTheSun15 Tue 19-May-15 22:03:41

With 3 of the 4 yes, very strong feeling of knowing. With dc2, I didn't have a clue.

SycamoreMum Tue 19-May-15 22:04:33

Yep. I kept saying 'she' rather than he/it/baby. The scanner lady laughed at my 20 week scan when I said I know its a girl and boom! grin

S2b16 Tue 19-May-15 22:04:47

First baby, I didn't have a feeling at all-she was girl
Second baby I was sure was a boy on basis preg was so different-she was a girl
This baby I had a bet with dh that it was a girl as I was so sick, craving sweet things, Chinese prediction said girl-3 scans have said he's a boy......Yep I'm pants at guessing lol

MrsGentlyBenevolent Tue 19-May-15 22:06:31

I'm convinced I'm having a boy, only because I've been reading too many old wives tales. Hopefully find out tomorrow, priority is making sure everything is ok, then hope baby will be an exhibitionist!

Gillian1980 Tue 19-May-15 22:08:34

Yep.
Convinced from the second I found out I was pregnant that she was a girl. And this was despite me spending 35 years saying I'd like my first child to be a boy!

Of course I don't mind at all - I'm absolutely thrilled smile

JoanJettPack Tue 19-May-15 22:09:03

Yes, with all three. All were boys and although I carried then all differently, I just knew smile

applecore0317 Tue 19-May-15 22:22:34

We were convinced it was a boy, and we found out at a 17 week private scan that we are having a girl. Hope they were right, my family have gone shopping mad... Only one week till my due date smile

Frolicacid Tue 19-May-15 22:39:38

Yes! I always 'knew' we'd have a boy, even before I was pregnant.

Poppytime Tue 19-May-15 22:51:41

Wasn't sure with my first but with this one I thought it was a boy (no reason why really!) and just found out I was right!

DramaAlpaca Tue 19-May-15 22:54:05

Wrong all three times.

badg3r Tue 19-May-15 23:03:31

I was sure DS was a boy as soon as I found it I was pregnant... so convinced I went round telling everyone it was a boy. We didn't find out for sure till he was born. Good job I got it right or I would have looked a bit silly telling everyone our "boy" was a daughter wink

Hophop987 Wed 20-May-15 00:26:03

First time was convinced DD was a boy,so was wrong.
This time I'm convinced it's a boy again, will find out in couple months time if right this timegrin

HotSteppa Wed 20-May-15 00:57:21

Right both times.

littleostrich Wed 20-May-15 04:48:56

I never had any preference but as soon as I found out I was pregnant I had a really strong instinct that I was carrying a girl - I felt like I "just knew". On top of that, all of the old wives' tales for gender prediction suggested I was having a girl, and my interpretation of 'skull theory' pointed to a girl too (no nub visible)...

All wrong, we had a boy!
