Just a bit of fun really. Did you think or know it was one sex then it popped out and was the opposite?

I feel mine is a girl but try to tell myself its a boy so im not shocked lol

Nope. Thought both DDs were boys! Even after they were born asked midwife to double check.....

I had no idea with number 1 till scan. Number 2 I had a feeling due to the food I wanted etc and it was confirmed at scan. This time I had a feeling due to the food again, but scan said the opposite.
Moral of this story I think I guessed right with DS, but the others I didn't.
50/50 there wasn't the logic I thought in my decisions.

Yes, right three times out of three. I even dreamt around the night I must have got pregnant with DS1 (we were not trying) that I was pregnant with a dark haired brown eyed boy...

My 2 neighbours both wanted boys and got girls just a few weeks ago, we kinda wanted a girl so knew lookin at the odds it would be a boy - it is they said at 12 week, will confirm at next scan. - am very happy though!

titferbrains Wed 11-May-11 21:23:04

yes I had a feeling it was a girl around 3 mo.

Fink Wed 11-May-11 21:24:24

I "found out" the gender at the scan (f), but spent so long telling everyone that it wasn't 100% accurate that I somehow convinced myself it was a boy... I was actually surprised when a girl popped (ok, was dragged kicking and screaming) out! [idiot face]

sarahbeth2 Wed 11-May-11 21:25:07

Gawd, its just so wierd as just feel its a girl and almost attached to that image so getting a bit anxious now. Why didnt i have a scan to see ;)
Mind you I know at the time i wont be bothered but i feel in this late stage as if i relate to my bump as a girl and so trying not to!

ToriaPumpkin Wed 11-May-11 21:26:47

Still waiting to see if I'm right (convinced it's a girl) but OH's best friend and his wife were convinced both theirs were girls from day one, you guessed it, they've got two lovely bouncing boys.

DandyGilver Wed 11-May-11 21:28:08

No. Convinced I was having a girl.

Spent ages debating and deciding on girl's names. Five minutes on boy's. Then I had a boy and no names that I liked. Husband was baffled. He had believed that I "knew".

sarahbeth2 Wed 11-May-11 21:38:15

Best start visualising a little boy then!!

simpson Wed 11-May-11 21:40:51

yes totally convinced I was having a boy with my first i even bought a few boys clothes when pg.....I was right smile

2nd time round I was convinced I was having a girl but did not buy anything as I was worried it was wishful thinking iyswim and I was right then too grin grin

lurcherlover Wed 11-May-11 21:42:05

I'm always wrong when I try to guess what other women are having, but I was convinced from the day I got a positive pregnancy test I was having a boy - I didn't find out at the 20 week scan but was certain all the way through. I was right. I had my boy name picked out and hadn't really thought of a girl's name. Just wish I'd have the guts to buy boy clothes - I held back because I thought it was stupid given that I only had a hunch I needed to get blue rather than proper proof, but if I could have staggered the clothes buying a bit I'd have saved myself some cash!

wigglesrock Wed 11-May-11 21:42:10

Have to be honest, have 3dds and I "felt" they were girls each time, honestly have no idea why. Never able to tell at scans but I just knew, didn't buy anything gender related just in case.

fallingandlaughing Wed 11-May-11 21:43:27

I feel the same. Seems weird when people say I might be having a boy. Neither me or DP mind what we have but it just feels like a girl.. I even bought girl's clothes today (only £3 in sale though). Reckon I can give them away if I am wrong.

claire201 Wed 11-May-11 21:46:42

I had a feeling that I can't explain that I was having a girl. I did

sarahbeth2 Wed 11-May-11 21:47:01

Nearly brought something pink the other day but stopped myself. Will update soon as nearly at end of pregnancy ;)

G1nger Wed 11-May-11 21:58:27

Oh well..., as someone who couldn't resist a bit of 'nub theory' speculation, I decided I was/am having a boy. And I am.

apricotears Wed 11-May-11 21:59:32

I have had a strong feeling my LO is a boy ever since I found out I was pregnant. I was the only one who felt like this; everyone else (including DH, parents, sisters etc) have thought girl since day dot. Whatever I did, I could not imagine this bubby to be a little girl. Proof was in the pudding at the 18 week scan when the sonographer took a look at the legs and both DH and I shot looks at one another as there was an unmistakable penis there! The sonographer then asked us if we wanted to know, we said yes and he said YES, definitely a boy! I know the scan isn't guaranteed, but I feel pretty confident. Bring on August!

jennifersofia Wed 11-May-11 22:18:09

Yes, X 3. All girls.

sleepybump Wed 11-May-11 22:24:01

Peppapig.. I had a dream two nights ago that I gave birth to a girl (who grew to 9yrs old within 24hrshmm), she had ginger, short-cut hair was athletically thin and nearly the same height as me by the end (not hard as I'm 5ft, I know a few 9-11yr olds my height!). It was so vivid I told my mum about it on the phone yesterday

I wonder...

MsChanandlerBong Wed 11-May-11 22:31:26

From about 12 weeks I had a wierd feeling it was a girl... but everyone kept telling me that due to my cravings/how I am carrying/the 12 week scan picture/etc it was definitely a boy.

Had my 20 week scan last week and it is a girl. Don't know if I am most pleased that I'm going to have a daughter, or just like proving people wrong. wink

LawrieMarlow Wed 11-May-11 22:42:25

Was convinced DC1 was a girl.

Was equally convinced DC2 was a boy.

Was wrong both times grin

sarahmia Wed 11-May-11 22:57:52

was right 3 out of 4 times. this time, was convinced it was a boy.. definately no willy tho!

LargeGlassofRed Wed 11-May-11 23:01:52

Ds1 I thought was a girl
Dd1 I thought was a girl
Dd2 I thought was a boy
