So I'm getting a little impatient and want to know boy or girl now, not that I mind either way but I want up start shopping. So i thought id ask jf any of this indicates one way of another just for fun....I have two boys, both of which I was much larger with, my sickness pattern was completely different it's worse this time and at different times of day stronger and it's not gone completely this time. i couldn't drink tea or coffee or fizzy drinks with the boys at all but can have the odd one this time and do fancy it. My bump was neater and up front but bigger with boys this time I'm all around and smaller. My scan pics are very different too but they are much clearer now than a few years ago. Anyway what I'm really asking is have you guessed before you found out due to your different symptoms. I'd never say this outloud at I am sick of being gone on at that I want a girl (I honestly don't have a preference I just want to know lol.) Thanks in advance xxxx

Hi blonde I have 2 girls and a boy and didnt find out what I was having with any of them.The girls were very similar really bad nausea all day every day and all I wanted to eat was sweet things. I would sit and eat five big trays of chopped mango in about 2 minutes (plus huge bars of chocolate!!)

With my son very little nausea and wanted meat! Steak,burgers,barbecued food and sausages I was like a cave man! Oh and the tiredness was unbelievable but that may have been down to him being my third and having to run round after the girls.

I am 8 weeks pregnant with my fourth and craving meat again so we shall see! Will probably have a girl now and blow my theory out of the water!! smile

Oooh that is interesting though, I'm much more sweet than savoury too so far and sickness and nausea is worse than with the boys. I was thinking maybe as I'm a bit older this time I'm finding it tougher but it's a completely different pregnancy o and my chest has inflated-I don't think they were any different with the boys tbh. Are you going to find out this time? I've been so patient until now but I'm more excited as scan fast approaches. Xxx

I have three girls and I never had any sickness, pregnancy was a breeze, I carried small out front with all of them, everyone thought I was carrying like boys!

This time I'm 12 weeks so to early to tell how I'm going to carry though feel little wider across butt, no sickness again but the worst tiredness in the world, so lazy

My friend had 3 boys, was horribly sick until about 6 months with all of them and shattered, her 4th was a girl and she had no sickness and pregnsncy was a breeze

Both my pregnancies were very different, but I had a girl then a boy!

My mum is adamant that neat up front bumps are boy bumps and all over bumps are girls- that is how it was for and for me, also a colleague was pg last year and I said, that looks like a boy bump to me, and it was!

There, a representative sample of 3 for you!!!

When I was carrying my girl I had all day and all through the pregnancy nausea, extremely noticeable less hairiness in myself (eg. hardly any leg shaving or eye brow taming necessary).

When I was carrying my boy I was less sick, very hairy, and very much interested in sex, which in retrospect I put down to the testosterone in my system.

Should say

For her and for me

No I like a suprise! The other thing my leg hair (and other areas!) grew much slower with the girls but with the boy omg it was everywhere! I would find big long hairs growing out of my chin! Combined with the caveman diet breath god I was attractive!! ;)

I am 20 weeks pregnant, and this pregnancy has been a lot different to my last one. my first was a girl so thought this one was a boy. I was so convinced! Had a sexing scan at 15 weeks and was told a girl, but I held out as it was so early thought it could be a mistake. Had my 20 week scan and was told a girl again! So I think each pregnancy is different, as I was so convinced it was a boy this time around!

I've had 3DCs, all completely different in sickness and size of bump and I've had 2DDs and 1DS
