2nd pregnancy feels different-does this mean I'm having a boy?!

When I was pregnant with Dd, the hair on my legs almost stopped growing and I felt very nauseous in 1st trimester. This pregnancy I haven't been so nauseous & leg hair is thick, I'm guessing (at 13 wks pregnant) that I'm expecting a boy because it's so different. Can other people who've had 2 or more tell me if I'm likely to be right, or just over analysing it! X

They do say non of these things are true but personally I experienced the leg hair thing!

Three dc two boys and a girl

With my girl I rarely had any leg hair at all!

Ooh all my hair stopped growing in my first pregnancy too! Id iverplucked an eyebrow at about 12 weeks and its glaring out at me in the first post birth photo. I had a dd.

Ive not noticed "haor growth" during this pg but am only seven weeks so theres time yet. My sickness levels are the same though.

With my boys I had no pregnancy symptoms at all, with DD I had faint nausea and a metallic taste in my mouth - whether this is an indicator of gender is anyone's guess though!

I think Guess the Gender games are best treated as fun rather than scientific fact smile

I have had a completely different pregnancy so far. Am having another boy.

I had a completely different pregnancy too, and am having another girl! so I think its just a case of every pregnancy is different, rather than to do with gender smile though I did keep wondering the same thing myself

With my DD I never really felt pregnant. No real symptoms the whole time. This time I was so sick until 16 weeks and just feel very washed out and tired, I having a boy!

Totally different pg with dc3, who turned out to be... Another boy!

Could be either - my two pregnancies have been very different and we're having dd no 2 in a few weeks time.

With DS I was very sick at first, had such a sweet tooth and was riddled with thrush.
With this one I've had no sickness, savoury cravings and no thrush...was convinced it was a girl but he's actually another boy!

Have you had a scan yet?
My second pregnancy felt completely different, turns out it was twins!
Good luck.
