Read an article saying that bad morning sickess is more likely if your carrying a girl.......

definitely worse when I was carrying dd as opposed to ds

ramalama Sun 14-Jun-09 19:35:43

It's bollocks

I have 2 dds and 1 ds

sickness with ds was by far the worst

Worzsel Sun 14-Jun-09 19:36:59

I was so sick with DD.

Not much atall with Ds

purepurple Sun 14-Jun-09 19:37:10

no, I had it bad with DS and then DD.Both times were hell on earth.

I have 2 dds & 1 ds. I was never actually sick, but the nausea & hungover feeling was pretty bad. I definitely found it worse with ds & it lasted longer, about 20 weeks iirc - about 12 weeks with dds.

I lost a stone in the first 3 months of pregnancy with horrible morning sickness. I had ds.

bigchris Sun 14-Jun-09 19:40:31

I had morning sickness with ds for 3 months

but with dd I had morning sickness all the way through

I had bearable morning sickness with my first 2 DDs. This time (I'm 9 weeks pregnant) is awful. It's all-day nausea, horrid.

Will let you know in about 3 months if it's a he or a she in there!

Well with my 2 DS's no real morning sickness.

However felt sick and was sick this pregnancy until about 17 weeks and according to the scan its a girl.

So for me it may hold true.

Definitely worse with DD compared to DS

LaTrucha Sun 14-Jun-09 19:47:40

We've had a lot of polls like this on the hyperemesis webstie. We've never found it to be true.

TigerFeet Sun 14-Jun-09 19:49:10

I'm currently pg with a dd and have been very sick all the way through.

With my first dd I was hardly sick at all.

It's bollocks imvho. It will be true for some but not for all. About 50:50 I'd say grin

MillyR Sun 14-Jun-09 19:49:24

I was worse with DD than DS.

MrsMattie Sun 14-Jun-09 19:50:20

Hmmm. I had what I thought was bad morning sickness with DS. Then had hyperemesis with DD. God, that was hideous.

Mintyyflavourcondom Sun 14-Jun-09 19:52:42

I had a dd and a ds. Lots of all-day sickness with both. Although with dd, I really could not eat (and lost a lot of weight) but with ds the sickness was alleviated by eating.

Kiwinyc Sun 14-Jun-09 20:01:50

What rubbish. I had dreadful morning sickness first time around, and none at all second time around. I have two girls.

nellynaemates Sun 14-Jun-09 20:04:27

Can I just point out that that article is 10 years old, anyone looked for anything more up to date?

mum23monkeys Sun 14-Jun-09 20:06:35

ds1 - no morning sickness
ds2 - god-awful morning sickness
dd - no morning sickness

It's twaddle and an old wives tale.

But if you read the article - with bad morning sickness you're only a bit more likely to have a girl.

The male-female ratio was 44.3 to 55.7. This is statisitcally significant but obviously loads of people having boys still have bad morning sickness and loads of people having girls don't.

A straw poll amongst you and your mates or on a thread like will prove very little as the sample size isn't large enough.

Baisey Sun 14-Jun-09 20:36:03

Yes its exactly like saying if you suffer from heartburn/indigestion you are going to have a hairy baby.
With DS I wasnt sick at all, this time round im as sick as a dog, but have no idea what im having, so we'll soon see!!

psychomum5 Sun 14-Jun-09 20:39:44

I do think there is a lot to be said with having different morning sickness with opposite genders tho.

mine was bad with the girls

truely fucking awful with my boys, to the point of losing a stone during pregnancy, and the sonographer stating that scanning a concave belly was most bizarre!

troutpout Sun 14-Jun-09 20:54:33

I had it both times...slightly worse with dd

Tidey Sun 14-Jun-09 20:57:26

I have a DD and a DS, I felt sick occasionally in both pgs but never actually threw up at all, for which I'm very grateful as some of you sound like you've been through hellish times.
