Does nausea mean it's a girl?

Just wondering as a friend keeps saying this to me... I have quite strong nausea all day every day! Hoping it goes soon!

Nope - I chucked up for the first 6 of the 9 months with both dcs.

I have 1 ds and 1 dd.

Hang on in there (and keep plastic bags and tissues in your bag at all times).

no, it means its a baby wink

nope. I had no nausea with my son and have had none this time (which is apparently a girl). Sorry, you'll have to wait until the 20 week scan or the birth, none of these theories work.

Not ime! Ds1 I threw up every day at 6pm on the dot until about 25 weeks. Ds2 I was sick as a dog all the way through (and when I wasn't barfing I felt continually nauseous). So I'd say you're having a boy.










Or a girl wink

no. had no nausea with dd2.

there are no sure-fire ways of determining what the sex is until it's outside your body.

here endeth the lesson.

No - 20 weeks of vomit with my dd.
9 months of it with ds. One of my friends was the opposite. The good news is that the theory is that nausea means that the hormones are strong. I promise they are worth it in the end. Congratulations by the way. grin

No nausea and per scan mine's a girl!

I felt worse with my boys than I did with dd.

A friend did tell me though that if your gums bleed when you brush your teeth it is a girl - and that did actually work for me. Gums were fine for the boys but bleed with dd.

Im the same this time as i was with my dd, interesting re the gums as i had this with my dd and have it again too...

faverolles Thu 06-Jan-11 18:51:34

I was sick every day with dd.
Then I was sick every day with ds2.
No sickness this time, so I reckon it'll be a baby. That's as far as I can guess

I have had no sickness or nausea whatsoever, am 24 weeks at the moment and expecting a girl! Think sickness is more of a genetic/hereditary thing than a gender thing. If your mum had bad sicknesss, likeliness is that you will.

Sorry to hijack but that's interesting re. the gums thing. One of the things that made me suspect I was pg this time was because my mouth erupted in ulcers and my gums are swollen etc. I promise I normally don't have an issue with dental hygiene!! I have a DS and didn't have any of these symptoms, a few people have said this indicates a girl - who knows!!

i was fine with no1 wasnt unwell in anyway, he was a boy. and then this time constant sickness from 4 weeks pregnant, it went at 3 months and this ones a boy too, each time is different

DiscoDaisy Fri 07-Jan-11 20:47:12

I have 3 girls and 2 boys and have had exactly the same symptoms for all 5 pregnancies.

EthelredOnAGoodDay Fri 07-Jan-11 20:49:25

I had no sickness at all with DD. My mum had loads of sickness with me, but none with my brother. So basically, don't think gender, or genes, have anything to do with it! Congrats BTW.

It did in my case, day long nausea with dd, totally fine with ds.
