I wasn't too well with my ds 9 years ago but I plodded thru and managed into work. I'm now 15 weeks with dc2 and I am so ill. Have been singed off work with hyperemesis for last 9 weeks. Am I having a girl? Xx

Could well be. I had bad sickness with my son (2-5 vomits a day, constant nausea) but baaad hyperemesis with my daughter (up to 30 vomits a day).

The nurses in hospital were sure it must be a girl as I was so sick.

Thanks, it would make sense xx

I'm having a girl and had no sickness at all. My mom was the same with each girl (that would be me) and boy.

I had hyperemesis with my son but am currently expecting a girl and have had it way worse this time round, have been off work for 12 weeks in total. Hospitalised both times though but definitely worse this pregnancy!

I had two girls and no sickness with either.

I had mild sickness with my Ds and appalling vomiting with my DD.

In fact when I had my 20 week scan I knew it was a girl before the sonographer told me.

My consultant said it's something to do with the levels of oestrogen or something so it can be worse if you have a girl.

I was sicker in my first pregnancy with DD than I have been in this one. We had a CVS and know this one is a boy.

Sallycinnamum Tue 27-Jan-15 18:56:04

Mind you, having said that I have friends who had awful sickness with boys.

I think it can be bad with either boy or girl. Just look at the Duchess of Cambridge - she was hospitalised with hyperemesis and had a boy.

I was hospitalised with hyperemisis several times when I was carrying dd.

But then I was when I was carrying ds too.

I was very sick throughout my last pregnancy and I had a boy. My sil had hyperemis in both pregnancies and had one boy and one girl.

symptoms and severity of same have nothing at all to do with the sex of the baby.

geekymommy Tue 27-Jan-15 19:25:40

If you have hyperemesis, it's slightly more likely that you're having a girl: www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22663323 But it's not anywhere near a certainty. Kate Middleton had hyperemesis, and she had a boy.

I'm having a girl and had no sickness whatsover, am 23 weeks now

Bigbadgeorge Tue 27-Jan-15 20:10:53

I was waaaaay more ill this time than with dd and I am expecting a boy! I thought it must be twins at the beginning it was so bad. My sister was the same, ok with dds but sick as a dog with ds

DramaAlpaca Tue 27-Jan-15 20:14:13

I was sick in all three of my pregnancies and had boys each time.

LikeSilver Tue 27-Jan-15 20:17:40

I've had two HG pregnancies, both requiring several hospitalisations, but DS was far worse than DD (DD was first).

LIG1979 Tue 27-Jan-15 20:40:57

I was sicker with this pregnancy (a ds) than I was with dd. but for others it has been the other way round. Personally, I think women often get sicker with 2nd or later children because they are less able to rest.

weeblueberry Tue 27-Jan-15 21:13:38

There's a 50% chance you're right.

HenriettaTurkey Tue 27-Jan-15 21:20:11

I had horrible HG with DS.
